Hilary Duff says getting married has changed her life "a lot".

The 'Bloodworth' actress married Canadian NHL player MIKE COMRIE almost a year ago and has revealed that she is delighted at how much more time they have spent together since they became man and wife.

She told website Hollyscoop: "It's changed a lot, being married is a different thing. It's really exciting, we spent a lot of time together this year which was nice. 

"He was in Pittsburgh playing Hockey so I was back-and-forth all the time, It's another year where a lot of big changes happened." 

As well as enjoying one another's company, Hilary and Mike have been busy working and building a home together.

The 23-year-old singer revealed: "I wrote two books, and we're remodelling a house right now."

She also offered some advice to Kim Kardashian, who this week announced that she is engaged to basketball star Kris Humphries after six months of dating.

On being told the news, Hilary said: "Congratulations! Everybody told me when I got engaged to enjoy the moment and make the most of it."

The former 'Lizzie McGuire' star recently revealed that she wants to take her marriage to the next level and start a family.

She said: "We talk about it. Yes, we're excited to do that, but I want to work a little bit more.

"I'm tossing around the idea of making another record and obviously that wouldn't be very good timing. We want it, we're excited for it, but I think it can wait just a little while longer."
