Hilary Duff Instagrammed a happy family photo on Friday from someplace a lot warmer than most of the U.S. right now. She looks breezy in shorts and a tank, and Mike Comrie is in a t-shirt and jeans, one arm around the former Disney star, and the other holding their 2-year-old son Luca.
But wait -- didn’t Hilary and Mike separate last month? Yes, yes they did. So what are they doing vacationing together? Duff’s photo caption may explain it: “#modernfamily #vacation #juicypear”
Well there you go. I guess all the “sources close to the couple” claiming that the two remain best friends despite their failed marriage are telling the truth. In the photo, both mom and dad are gazing adoringly at Luca (who’s nibbling on a pear) -- not each other.
When they announced the split last month, a rep said in a statement:
"Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie have mutually decided to an amicable separation. They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other's lives. They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time."

It looks like they are remaining friendly. They seem at ease with one another and comfortable with their new normal. It might not be for everyone, but they look happy, and more importantly, Luca is loved by both of his parents.
Do you think it’s possible to remain best friends after a divorce?
