. "I might see Mike actually more than I see Hilary, which is weird."
She adds of a possible reconciliation: "I think they're doing great, and they're just taking their time. They're young, you know? So they're not putting stress to figure out which way it's going to go."
"I was making dinner and it was just sort like a normal night ... I was literally like, my face in the refrigerator, like, 'What do you want for dinner? Do you want chicken? Do you want this?' and he wasn't responding to me. I turned around and he was [holding a ring]," she recalls.
"It happened on April Fool's Day, so instantly I was sweaty and crying and I thought it was an April Fool's joke," Duff continues. "I was like, 'This is the meanest April Fool's joke you could ever possibly do!' But I couldn't have imagined it any sweeter and it was exactly how I would've wanted it to happen."
