Hilary Duff Files for Divorce from Mike Comrie

Lots of us were rooting for actress and mom Hilary Duff and her hockey-playing husband Mike Comrie. Even after they separated last year, the two were often seen together in public and seemed to still actually like each other—so much so that their closeness often fueled rumors that they were getting back together. But, all hope seems to be lost. Duff reportedly filed for divorce and sources say Comrie's recent wild night was the last straw.

Duff, 27, and Comrie, 34, are parents to 2-year-old Luca and had been married since 2010. Hilary cited irreconcilable differences and some say her decision to move forward with the divorce was spurred by a recent night out Comrie reportedly enjoyed in Beverly Hills, where sources say he got drunk and tried to pick up two women, including a waitress.

The Younger actress, who slammed rumors in November that she was dating her costar Nico Tortorella after she was photographed sitting on his lap, is seeking primary custody of Luca and wants Comrie to get visitation rights. Some are saying she's concerned that his partying ways will affect their toddler, but that's just a bit of gossip right now. In the past, she has had nothing but glowing things to say about her husband.

Hilary has also made it perfectly clear that their separation didn't mean they were calling it quits, and that if they hadn't intended to at least try and work things out, they would have simply filed for divorce 13 months ago.

So, they tried. And, for whatever reason, they didn't find enough there to make it possible for them to reunite and stay married. It happens. I feel sad for them, but they've proven they are mature enough, and have enough respect for one another, to do the best thing for their family.

Are you surprised Hilary and Mike are getting a divorce?
