In a new interview, Hilary Duff has revealed she is struggling with post-pregnancy weight loss. The Hollywood diva, who welcomed a son Luca with husband Mike Comrie in March, admitted that she does feel the pressure of being constantly compared her with other actresses who bounced back soon after giving birth.

The 25-year-old singer-actress joked to Parents.com: “There are some women who look the same right after - I think they are freaks of nature!”

She added: “I don't know how that happens. I'm not one of those people.”

The blonde beauty, whose post-baby weight loss struggle has been well-documented, confessed that shedding the extra pounds is not a piece of cake. “It takes your body nine months to get there, really 10 months. So I'm trying to be patient but I'm working hard,” Hilary said, adding: “And I think now more than ever, I appreciate my body and what it's done for me.”

The “Lizzie McGuire” star also revealed that she finds it hard to be scrutinized by the media at all times. She told the website: “I mean there are photographers following me every day, so you feel the pressure because of what people write about you.”

She added: “Not that they're personal attacks, but obviously, when you see ‘Hilary Debuts Post-Baby Body!’ you want to tell people, ‘No, actually, I was just going out to get a coffee.’”

Despite the awful weight gain, the former Disney star declared that there are no words to describe how great it feels to be a mother.

The proud mom explained: “It's really wonderful. There are no words to describe it. I mean, to say ‘It's wonderful’ sounds minuscule. When you get to see your baby for the first time, and they put him on your chest, and you're looking into each other's eyes, this feeling just washes over you and there are really no words.”

However, the actress, who married NHL star husband Mike Comrie in 2010, admitted that being a new mother can be very tiring.

She said: “You know the first two weeks I was just on a high. I was going, going, going. And then after that, exhaustion set in. So that was tough. The advice people gave me was to sleep when your baby's sleeping and I didn't do it in the beginning. Once I got exhausted I thought, ‘Okay, I understand what they mean.’”

Hilary also said pregnancy has helped her get close to her family. She told the website: “I mean, Mike, my mom, my sister. It's such a huge thing right away: You're like, ‘I'm pregnant, wow, total life change.’”
