Practice makes perfect! Pregnant Hilary Duff plays mummy at the park

By Daily Mail Reporter

She looks the part! Pregnant Hilary Duff played with a friend's baby during a day out at the park in Los Angeles

She's got until March until she's due to give birth but heavily pregnant star Hilary Duff is already getting in some practice being a mother.

The singer and actress enjoyed a post-Thanksgiving day out at Coldwater Canyon Park in Los Angeles on Friday where she played with the children.

The Disney star, who headed out with her husband, professional ice hockey player Mike Comrie, was seen supporting her aching back with her hands.

Duff, 24, rested against a large tree for support as she conversed with the 31-year-old sports star in the November sunshine.

She's been seen in an array of figure hugging dresses recently as she proudly shows off the growing bump.

And Duff has admitted she has purposely been opting for tighter ensembles.

She has said: 'In the beginning (of my pregnancy) I was thinking, I'm going to wear really loose things, because you don't really look pregnant at first - you just feel a little bigger than your normal self.

'And now that you start to show I think it's better to wear tighter things, but it's kind of a challenge to find things!'

But the Lizzie Maguire star opted for a more casual affair for her day out, donning comfortable brown leggings with flat leather boots, while a long-sleeved black top skimmed over her pregnant belly.

Ensuring her style wasn't jeopardised, she wore a matching green necklace and oversized shades to dress up the outfit.

Comrie sported a red baseball cap, grey Yale T-shirt and black jeans with trainers and was at one point seen tenderly caressing his wife's back and looking at her lovingly.

The pair will welcome a baby boy when their first child comes into the world early next year, and Duff was seen getting some practice in by tending to a young boy in the park.

Despite resting her hands on her lower back for support, Hilary felt energetic enough to pick up a young boy as he played in the sand pit.

And that's not the only motherly instinct Hilary showed on her day out - she also played with one of her dogs as she bent down on some grass.

Leaning her weight on her knees, the TV and film star threw a ball as the pooch ran to collect it before returning for a pat and a stroke.

Hilary was clearly enjoying the fresh air as she was seen laughing at her friends as Mike looked on.

The pair later enjoyed some alone time, with Hilary perching on a gate and resting her chin on her hands as they both looked in the distance.

While she may be enjoying her down time now as she prepares to become a mum, Hilary is already setting her sights on a return to music.

She recently revealed she wants to debut her new material after the birth at some point between 2012 and 2013.

Playful: The star still has several months to wait until she can become a full-time mum
