Hilary Duff and her husband Mike Comrie welcomed their new baby boy, Luca Cruz, five weeks ago and the new mom admits she thought it was going to be all sunshine and daisies. Unfortunately, to her surprise, lack of sleep got in the way!

The 24-year-old told People:

The first week I was like, ‘I’m doing this, I’m good. I can not sleep, I can do this.’ I don’t know where you get that energy from. Then it hits you — the fatigue.

Thanks to some parenting advice however, the actress found that taking naps when the baby napped helped a lot. Since becoming a new mom, Duff says now knows what unconditional love is. She said: “You don’t realize it, you can’t understand it until it happens.You’re holding your baby and looking at him and your husband and thinking, ‘I would do anything for you.’”
