"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," Duff`s representative said.

Duff took to Twitter and wrote, "Mike and I are sitting here, we are so appreciative for all of your kindness and well wishes. Not an easy day but we`re getting through it together."
The couple plan to co-parent Luca.

The split was reportedly not a rash decision.
"There was no major incident ? no big event between the two of them. They have put effort and thought into this decision for a long time. They tried couples therapy, but in the end, they realized at this time, they work better as friends," a source said.

It`s something (Hilary) thought through. She really does care about him and he really does care about her," the source added.
