Hilary Duff still ''loves'' MIKE COMRIE.

The 27-year-old singer and actress - who amicably split from her husband in January this year - has admitted the pair are still trying to ''figure things out''.

She said: ''We have 2-year-old [Luca] together. We love each other. Obviously it wasn't a rash decision that we made.

''We really are just trying to figure out how we are the most happy - whether together or apart - and we're doing it as lovingly as possible.''

Hilary also revealed that her and Mike want to keep a ''strong relationship'' together whether or not they chose to stay married.

She told Health magazine: ''We would hang out without Luca; we think it's important to keep a strong relationship no matter if we're married or not married.

''And we love our son. We both want to fight for happiness.''

Meanwhile, Hilary recently admitted that she felt ''a bit desensitised'' following her separation from Mike.

When asked how she handled the difficult time, she said: ''I have a good therapist! I've dealt with [attention] for such a long time. But some of the bigger struggles that came my way in the past two years - like my separation or when my parents separated - were the first times I had to deal with people knowing about something personal happening to my family.

''It just felt so invasive and insensitive. It got really gross, and I think part of you gets a bit desensitised. The best way to handle it is by just owning your s**t. I'm human and this is what happened. None of us is perfect.''
