Hilary Duff's Christmas Gratitude

Posted Sunday December 25, 2011 9:02 PM GMT

In what's set to be her last year celebrating the wintertime holiday without a little one to dote on, Hilary Duff was filled with Christmas cheer on Sunday (December 25)

The expecting singer/actress/author excitedly took to Twitter to send love to her millions of followers, writing, "MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! Hope this is a peaceful and loving day for everyone! So much to be grateful for!! Xoxoxo"

Having good reason to be in such grateful spirits, Miss Duff and her man are eagerly awaiting their role of first time parents with an expected due date of March.

The Christmas message comes just after Hilary was spotted out the previous two afternoons while visiting a local supermarket with sister Haylie and husband Mike Comrie on Friday followed by a last minute gift run to Barneys New York with her hockey star hubby on Christmas Eve.
