Hilary Duff is currently in New York City filming the TV Land pilot Younger and over the weekend she made one lucky fan’s dream come true.
While filming at Chelsea Piers, Hilary took time to meet one of her biggest fans, SPC Michael Lynch, a two time combat veteran who spent 15 months in Iraq and 12 months in Afghanistan.
Michael told us he has seen “everything she has made since Lizzy McGuire and owns every album she has made.” And, as if that weren’t enough to make him a huge fan, his mother shares the same birth date with Hilary and he was born only 8 days apart from her.
Michael had seen Hilary on The Dignity Tour seven times but it was too hard to meet her so he was excited to get the chance to see her in NYC.
“When she first came out I was at a lost for words,” he said of their meeting on Saturday. “I feel like I had so many things I wanted to tell her and forgot, I couldn’t speak, LOL. We talked about her son and her missing him. We talked about her new album and her getting back into the studio. She told me she respects the military and everything we do.”
It sounds like Hilary appreciates her fans as much as they appreciate her!
