Hillary-Duff-Comrie-getty
Hilary Duff and ex-NHL star Mike Comrie have just announced they've separated ... and it's pretty obvious divorce is just a matter of time.

The couple says they "have mutually decided to an amicable separation" and will "remain best friends and will continue to be in each other's lives."

26-year-old Duff and 33-year-old Comrie were married in Aug. 2010 in Santa Barbara ... and Hilary gave birth to a baby boy,  Luca, March 20, 2012.

Hilary's mom, Susan Duff, tells TMZ, the couple has already decided on joint custody of Luca.  Susan says she loves Mike but sees the breakup this way, "They're better friends than a married couple."

A rep for the couple says they are dedicated to parenting their son together.

Hilary just tweeted saying, "Mike and I are sitting here, we are so appreciative for all of your kindness & well wishes."

She continued, "Not an easy day but we're getting thru it together."

Hilary and Mike were most recently spotted together on New Year's Eve.

Stuff like this usually happens after having a baby.. It's sad but it's the truth, you would think welcoming a baby would brung a couple tighter and stronger than ever but if doesn't.. And a lot of it stems from Him bring a man and his tistosterone raging but being a women and a mother especially a stay at home mother it's hard work!!! Yes a AVERAGE man goes out and works 8hrs 9 including lunch and brings home the $$ but they don't understand WE WORK 24 HOURS A DAY and at night we're TIRED and EXHAUSTED and we just want to go to bed, I'm not saying this is Hilary's problem, homegirl probably has a live in nanny who wakes up with her kids in the middle of the night or takes them from her when you just can't handle them anymore when they press your buttons to the max (you parents who are stay at home parents know what I'm . Talking about) I don't know her, but it's true! Unless you nab this incredible guy who gets it and when he gets home takes a load off of his wife and totally helps out the mom regardless because he's a genuine good dad and loves spending time with his children, but it's US who wakes up with the kids I. The middle of the night because he needs his sleep cause he needs his sleep, it's us waking up constant and checking in the kids when they're suck, it's us constantly cleaning andum not talking about just huge kitchen or the dishes.. It's the bathrooms, laundry, bedroom and theliving room and making food.. & if y have more than 1 child forget about it.. You have homework, sports and making sure they clean and that they clean up after then selves... It doesn't stop, and then it's the same thing the next day.. I not saying a women's a prune after having a child but I would say a women's more tired, their priorities do change ( your not about your lover, he's not the center of your world like he use to be.. , your lover doesn't come first like before.. Your child does.. And most men are very selfish, and don't understand and they are the ones who want to be BABIED, and of course children take up a lot of your attention and men can't handle that!!! And vise versa a lot of dads come home and pay all of their attention to their baby and the mom gets jealous., but the hardest in my experience is if you want your marriage to succeed and your family to last regardless if who stays home or both work you got to work together and the one that does stay home has got realize how much the other does and is grateful and appreciate what the other does.. You may not think so but it does mean a lot to the parent that stays home.. And I don't know maybe I got it all backwards or wrong.. But in my eyes after having a baby really tests a relationship, I always heard that, but once I experienced it I knew what everyone was talking about!

That actually makes me sad for them. I am always pro family! She seems like a very down to earth girl. I wish them both and their son the best!

Since they are saying that they are going to remain friends, I wonder would they consider marriage counseling as a final attempt to save their marriage, because of their little one? Separation and divorce are very hard when children are involved. My husband and I are divorced, and my teenage daughter recently told me that she watches Pink's video Family Portrait on You Tube, and how she can relate to it. Divorce is very difficult, but it is what my ex wanted.

When I heard that they were out together this past New Years Eve, and she spoke of baby number two in November, and then this happens, I really think someone cheated.

TMZ seems to think any person who ever played sports is a star? They over use the word star in every sports story.
