Hilary Duff enjoyed a solo shopping spree in LA on Wednesday as she gears up for the arrival of her fourth child.
The 36-year-old showed off her growing baby bump in a pair of comfy high-waisted black leggings and a taupe tank top.
She wore black slides on her feet and carried a bag from the gourmet grocery store Jayde’s Market in the Beverly Glen neighborhood of Los Angeles.
The Lizzie McGuire alum – who recently found out plans for a reboot were scrapped – climbed into her SUV and got on her way to her next destination.

Fans of Lizzie McGuire were disappointed when Disney+ scrapped the plans for a reboot of the series in 2020 that would have followed the life and adventures of an adult Lizzie.
Fortunately, this week one of the writers on the reboot, Jonathan Hurwitz, took to TikTok to reveal the planned plot details.
It was planned that the series would open with a 30-year-old Lizzie moving back home from New York City after she found out her boyfriend had cheated on her with one of her friends.
Then, Hurwitz quickly dashed any hopes of a romantic reunion between Lizzie and her BFF Gordo, despite their kiss at the end of the 2002 Lizzie McGuire movie.
‘Lizzie meets up with Gordo and Gordo reveals that he is engaged to a woman, and she’s pregnant, and they’re really happy,’ Hurwitz explained. ‘So no, in this version, Lizzie and Gordo would not have ended up together.’
The end of Episode 2, however, featured ‘Lizzie getting a text from Ethan Craft, and little animated Lizzie faints,’ per Hurwitz.
Ethan was Lizzie’s middle school crush, and in the reboot, the writers suggested that the pair might end up spending the night together.
‘Episode 3 wasn’t filmed, but there was a script for it,’ Hurwitz said. ‘Lizzie wakes up in Ethan’s bed in his water polo t-shirt.’
‘Animated Lizzie pops up, and she has this little checklist, like a to-do list, and Ethan is on the list. She checks it off, and I think she says something like, “Well, checked that box [dramatic pause] twice.”‘
Hurwitz also confirmed that Lizzie was going to have a gay roommate, who was loosely based on himself.
Lizzie McQuire quickly became a huge Disney Channel hit after it debuted in 2001.
It followed the humorous escapades of teenager Lizzie as she navigates adolescence with her animated alter ego offering witty commentary.

Duff heavily promoted the reboot via social media, and even delivered the sad news of its cancellation on her Instagram account.
‘I know the efforts and conversations have been everywhere trying to make a reboot work, but sadly & despite everyone’s best efforts, it isn’t going to happen,’ she wrote at the time.
‘I want any reboot of Lizzie to be honest and authentic to who Lizzie would be today. It’s what the character deserves.
‘We can all take a moment to mourn the amazing woman she would have been and the adventures we would have taken with her,’ she concluded.
