Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie have split after three years of marriage.

A spokesperson for the 26-year-old former "Lizzie McGuire" actress confirmed the news on Friday, Jan. 10. She and Comrie, a 33-year-old retired NHL player, are parents to a 21-month-old son, Luca.

"Mike and I are sitting here,we are so appreciative for all of your kindness& well wishes," Duff said on Twitter on Friday. "Not an easy day but we're getting thru it together."

"Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie have mutually decided to an amicable separation," Duff's spokesperson said in a statement posted by E! Online. "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."

The two married in August 2010 after dating for about three years. It is unclear if divorce documents have been filed.

Duff had shared photos of herself with Comrie on Twitter as recently as late December (see below).
