Former Lizzie McGuire star Hilary told E! News that she and ex-husband Mike still enjoy spending time together – not just for the sake of their young son Luca, but because they're genuinely friends.
"We love each other so much and we love spending time together, so when you see us out, it's not just for Luca, it's because we make plans and we hang out," she said.
Hilary, 26, and hockey player Mike announced their separation after three years of marriage in January 2014. It came as a shock to many as just a few months earlier Hilary had tweeted a gushing message celebrating their wedding anniversary.
"3 yrs ago today I married a wonderful man!" she had said. "So lucky we found each other. He also gave me the most precious boy I ever layed my eyes on!!."
Announcing their separation, a rep said: "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."
They married in Santa Barbara, California in August 2010, after meeting three years earlier while holidaying with friends in Idaho. Mike proposed to Hilary during a holiday to Hawaii in February 2010.
Son Luca arrived in March 2012.
Hilary and Mike's continuing friendship has prompted rumours that their relationship may not be over for good, and a reconcilation could occur in the future.
For now, however, they are just friends.
"We don't know what our future looks like right now but we're both doing really good and just figuring out what makes us happy," said Hilary.
Hilary was out in Los Angeles last night attending the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards at The Shrine Auditorium. The singer and actress walked the red carpet in black velvet dress and strappy heels, showing off a tousled top knot and orange lip.
Professionally, the blonde has been out of the limelight since the birth of son Luca but is currently working on her musical comeback. Hilary signed a new record deal in March, paving the way for her first album since 2007's Dignity.
