Split was not easy: Hilary Duff

Los Angeles: Singer Hilary Duff admits she has had a tough time ever since she split from husband Mike Comrie.

"I`m separated from my husband right now, which has been a very difficult thing to go through, but we have a lot of love for each other and we have this beautiful baby," a website quoted Duff as saying.

The 26-year-old has been working on her music and admits there`s a song in her upcoming album about her separation and her feelings for her ex-husband saying: "It`s very, very personal."

This will be Duff`s first album in seven years and she will be seen clad in a bikini in her new video, `Chasing the Sun`.

Ed Sheeran is also featuring in her new album.

The former Disney star said that music began to beckon her again when she was pregnant with son Luca, who is two-year-old.
