A decade after the debut of her claim to fame, “Lizzie McGuire,” 23-year-old actress Hilary Duff is expecting a child.

The Texan, who tied the knot with professional ice hockey player Mike Comrie last year, wrote on her official website Sunday that she was happy to celebrate her first wedding anniversary and inform the world that a baby is on the way.

“I can’t believe it has already been a year,” Duff wrote. “We also want to share the exciting news that baby makes three! We are extremely happy and ready to start this new chapter of our lives. Thanks to everyone for the continued love and support throughout the years!”

Comrie and Duff got hitched on August 14, 2010 at a $29 million estate near the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California.

Duff, who made a big name for herself ten years ago after playing the lead role in the wildly popular Disney series “Lizzie McGuire,” gave Us Weekly the inside scoop on her pregnancy last week.

“We both love kids and we’re really excited,” Duff told the celebrity news magazine. “It was a big deal for us because we had a year to be married.”

Earlier this year, the former child star was the subject of what appeared to be false pregnancy rumors. When Star magazine reported that a “close friend” of Duff’s said the actress was going to be a mother, Duff told Access Hollywood, “Nope, not pregs! Be nice to know who my ‘friend’ is though that is telling people that. Maybe I should start wearing some tighter clothes.”
