Hilary's Lizzie McGuire would be remade into movies, animations and merchandise, catapulting the actress into massive stardom in her early career.
Hilary Erhard Duff was born on September 28, 1987, in Houston, Texas. Before landing her breakthrough as a teen, Duff had done several commercial gigs and had raked minor credits in The Soul Collector, Chicago Hope, and Daddio. The 34-year-old is currently married to her second husband, Matthew Koma.
Who is Hilary Duff's husband, Matthew Koma?
The former Disney star has been happily married to singer-songwriter Matthew Koma since 2019. Before Koma, Duff had a few failed relationships and one unsuccessful marriage.

Koma, 35, a singer-songwriter, DJ, and record producer, met Duff while collaborating on Lizzie McGuire alum's album Breath In, Breathe Out. But it was only after Duff's divorce was finalized that the new lovebirds made their relationship official. Duff and Koma debuted at the pre-SAG Awards party in January 2017, marking the serious status of their romance, followed by a brief split two months later, which had many wondering if the singer pair were goofing around.
Duff and Koma rekindled their romance a few months later in October and have been going strong. In the next few years, the Disney alum and Matthew moved in together, adopted a senior dog, and even welcomed a daughter, Banks Violet Bair, a year before their wedding in October 2018. The duo's wedding, on December 21, 2019, was a low-key affair with just family and close friends assembled in their backward. The duo welcomed another daughter, Mae James, in March 2021.

While Duff is a cultural icon, her husband Koma may come off as a relatively smaller star, but Koma's credits and contributions are more than some. A native of Seaford, New York, Matthew has many impressive collabs in his profile, including with Zedd, Ellie Goulding, LMFAO, and more. Koma co-wrote the Grammy-winning song Clarity with Zedd.

As the couple's whirlwind romance ensued, the duo announced their engagement in February 2010 and tied the knots on August 14, 2010.
