Hilary Duff is opening up about her son Luca—and ETonline has your exclusive insight!
The former Disney starlet is returning to her root at Radio Disney Friday afternoon, to discuss her brand new single, "Chasing the Sun," and what it's like stepping back into the singing spotlight. The 26-year-old also dished on the biggest change in her life since last visiting the hit Disney station: her son Luca!
Radio Disney is giving ETonline viewers an exclusive sneak peek of Duff's refreshingly candid August 1interview, and you had all better brace yourselves because you're about to be hit with an excess of adorable. So what does little Luca think of his momma's catchy summer single, and is he on the track to follow in Duff's singing footsteps?
Read on for the all the darling details…
Duff revealed that lately, her two-year-old son has been listening to "a lot of Hilary Duff these days" because she loves being able to share her new tracks with him. "The car stereo is always where I like to listen to my demos or songs we're almost finished with. The car radio is always like a tester, so he has to listen to me a lot," the former Lizzie McGuire star admitted.
"It's sweet because…before he hears my voice and he just hears the beginning of a song, he's like, 'Oh, momma's song!' He definitely knows what's up and he knows it's me," she shared.
So what happened when the blonde beauty showed Luca the new music video for "Chasing the Sun"? "When I showed him the video he got a little confused, which is funny," Duff smiled. "At first he was watching and then he was looking at me and looking at the TV and looking back at me, and I think he was like, 'How are you in two places at once right now?' So that was fun. It's really nice to be able to do this all over again and see him responding to it."
When they aren't testing out her new music in the car, Duff said she and Luca like to listen to Radio Disney together, which she still considers to be her "first and number one supporter."
And it appears that Luca could also have a career as a singer in the future! "We also listen to a lot of the "Cars" soundtrack. That's his jam [Rascal Flatts' 'Life is a Highway']!" The proud momma revealed, "He just learned how to do the beginning part of the song, where the person's like, 'Mmm, yeah.'"
And what's on Hilary's summer playlist? "I'm loving Magic!'s song 'Rude' and I'm kind of freakishly obsessed with Sam Smith right now. And so is Luca, actually, but he calls him 'Ham Mith' because he can't say his S'," she gushed. "I don't know if Sam would appreciate that but I think it's adorable. He's like, 'Ham Mith! Ham Mith!' I'm like, yeah, that's right!"
