Hilary Duff gets hitched to hockey star

The summer of celebrity weekend weddings continues with Hilary Duff, who is the latest star to exchange "I dos." The "Cinderella Story" actress wed Canadian hockey star fiance Mike Comrie over the weekend.

Duff, 22, and Comrie, 29, exchanged vows Saturday before 100 of their family members and friends in an intimate ceremony at a $29 million estate near the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California, reports Us Weekly.

The bride wore a strapless Vera Wang with her hair in a bun, and walked down an aisle strewn with rose petals and candles. Duff's big sister Haylie, 25, was maid of honor.

The couple met on a 2007 trip to an Idaho resort and got engaged during a Hawaiian vacation last February. Saying yes to the 14-carat, radiant-cut sparkler was a no-brainer, Duff said.

"He's generous, caring, funny," she explained. "We just laugh our heads off, which I need in my life ... He's unique. I wouldn't want to be with someone who wasn't unique."

    I'm not a fan, but I do give props to Hilary Duff. Look at Lindsay Lohan compared to her. At least she can still be a teen icon unlike the drunken mess. She has been successful in her career and love life. Go Hilary!

    Here's some advice: Mike, were not saying it's going to last forever. In fact it probably won't last 3-4 years. Her career will sour. She'll pop a few kids out. Things will start to sag a little. It's not like your career will go anywhere either. A little bit short and undersized. Enjoy while you can.

    Take a good look at the mother, short and squatty and tempermental. The fruit often turns into the tree.

    I second Rainier Wolfcastles' comment.

    True, she has stayed out of trouble, but the whole goody two shoes bit is really sickening with her. The true talent is her sister, but she turned out to be cuter and got the part. Hillary will be fine. She is one of those who have that charmed life. Her husband must know how to deal with her short, fat, diva of a mother. No wonder her father cheated all those years on her. And yes, we know her mother firsthand.

      MIke Comrie gave Hillary Duff a 14 carat engagement ring because it is a combined set. To commemorate their first anniversary he gave her a top of the line Mercedes.

    I'm happy for her. She was a delightful teen actress. She's the only brilliantly positive role-model who hasn't crashed and burned, as Linsey Lohan and Melssa Gilbert have.

      @ Doug Miles – Um, when was Melissa Gilbert ever trying to be a role model? She played a gruff, screw-up of a daughter on tv. Also, did she crash and burn by coming out as a lesbian? Not everyone would agree with that.

    22 is too young to get married. Duff sets a terrible example for young girls. Their careers will not even allow them to spend time together so what's the point? Unless it is a sham marriage for publicity purposes.

    • darkfyrelady36

      Really 22 is too young, I got married at 18 and we just celebrated our 18th anniversary this july. It is not so much a person's age, as maturity level that matters. I know plenty of 40 yr olds that shouldnt get married because they act like a 5 yr old, but plenty of 18 to 20 yr olds that have a great head on their shoulders and are more than ready for it. She is a good person, and role model, a heck of alot better than most celebrities are and I wish her all the happiness that I can.

      Hey idiot....I got married at 23 and I am still married 10 years later. For the record, it is the norm in a lot of other countries to be married by 22. I guess stupid Americans like you can't handle marriage that young because it takes you so damn long to grow the helll up. What a tool!!

    • Yupps

      Really? And you think you're who, now, to put an age limit on marriage?? Hate to tell ya, but people have been getting married at a relatively young age for ... well, ages, and actually have made it longer, happier, than those who get married in their 40's. I've been married since I was 19, and still couldn't be happier and still feel as much in love with my hubby as I did on day 1! Seriously, if you even knew what marriage was, you wouldn't be spouting your hate poison about being "too young" to be married. If 22 was too young, they wouldn't allow 18 year olds to marry, or 16 year olds with parental consent!

      OUCH – Meg has a point! The last couple of generations of Americans are far too selfish, and stupid, and immature. Look at the divorce rate.

      I married a few weeks before I turned 25. This coming May makes 24 years.

      People don't take marriage seriously in this country.

      It's "Forsaking all others, til death do us part... For better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sicknedd and in health"

      Today, people seem to think it's "Til something better comes along, til I'm sick of your face, til I find somebody who'll let me get my freak on, constantly...etc, etc"

      Really sad.

    • Junebug

      Hey Yupps, you got married at 19, but how long have you been married? 2 months?

      Statistically, half of all marriages in America end in divorce...and many of these are people who have gotten married younger than 25. I'd say 22 is a fair age to get married, not really that young. But I know plenty of girls around here who married right out of high school...now they're single moms!

    Calling either one of these two a "star" is a joke. Mike Comrie can't skate to save his life! He'd have a better chance at stardom singing for her while she outs the skates on. Please do some research ( and as a personal favour, don't call him Canadian)

"he's not a hockey star" – he is a well known NHL player, most of them are "stars" and it looks better in print than "professional hockey player". Get a life people, if you don't like them, don't read the freaking articles!! You knew what it was before you clicked on the link. To go through all the trouble of posting a comment after reading it just shows what a loser YOU are!! And for HALIFX – as already stated, Mike Comrie is Canadian, born & raised Canadian and plays for a Canadian team. What is your problem with that?? You sound a tad jealous, all of you. Get over it, be happy for them, or keep your mouth shut. There is absolutely no reason for negative posts on such a lighthearted article.
