The actress-and-singer was thrilled about not having to keep the news to herself anymore when her elder sibling finally shared her joy with fans. Afterwards, the ex Lizzie McGuire star told her 4.28 million followers that she was about to get a new addition to the family.
“So happy to not have to keep this news in!! My beautiful sister @HaylieDuff and her amazing boyfriend @Matt_STS are engaged!!!!” she wrote.
It came after Haylie wrote a blog post on her food website Real Girls’ Kitchen that she was to walk down the aisle for the first time.
“Friends,” she began. “This week has seriously just become the best week of my life! As if announcing The Real Girl’s Kitchen tv show wasn’t enough, Matt just took me by total surprise and proposed…on April Fool’s Day of all days!”
“The moment was genuine and sweet (like him!) and I couldn’t wait to say yes! We are so excited and happy to share our wonderful news with everyone! We both feel so blessed to have the love and support of our family and friends and can’t wait to start this new adventure!”

Hilary has son Luca with her recently estranged husband Mike Comrie
“Cheers!” she added. “Love, The Future Mrs. Rosenberg.”
Hilary only announced her separation from NHL player Mike Comrie this year. The 26-year-old was soon after seemingly targeted by her ex-boyfriend Aaron Carter who cryptically tweeted about missing the love of his life. Hilary and Mike tied the knot in 2010 after three years of dating and welcomed their son Luca into the world in 2012.
