Update, April 21, 2017, 2 p.m. PT: It might just be that Santa Barbara’s San Ysidro ranch is cursed for Hilary Duff. It’s where she spent her wedding night with her ex-husband, Mike Comrie, and we all know how that turned out. And now, just a few months after spending a romantic weekend there with her music producer boyfriend, Matthew Koma, he and Duff have called it quits.
Sources say they actually parted ways in early March but managed to keep their breakup under wraps for more than a month. Insiders close to the couple say dating was just too hard with their respective schedules.
Hilary Duff and her new music producer boyfriend, Matthew Koma, have really been enjoying each other’s company — so much so that they decided to spend the long weekend together relaxing at Santa Barbara’s San Ysidro Ranch, Us Weekly reports.
But this isn’t just any old ranch. It happens to be one with special significance for Duff because it’s where she spent her wedding night in 2010 with her now-ex-husband, Mike Comrie.
“They checked in to San Ysidro Ranch on Saturday afternoon and stayed on the property until Sunday morning,” a source told Us Weekly — so it looks as though Duff is ready to create new memories at the ranch.
After the overnight stay, the pair moved on, with the source revealing that “they went to breakfast on Coast Village Road at Jeannine’s and then they took a stroll with their coffees. When they left, Matt was driving Hilary’s car.”
Duff and Koma have not been together for long (although they’ve known each other since at least June of 2015, when they collaborated together on Duff’s album, Breathe In. Breathe Out.), but they appear to be very happy together.
Prior to their ranch trip, the pair was spotted at the Woodland Hills Gasolina Cafe in Los Angeles on Saturday, Jan. 14, and according to a source, they were not afraid to put on a little public display of affection.
“At the restaurant, they were seated on the same side of the table and pulled their chairs close together,” the source said. “They were leaning in and laughing a lot. They had their arms linked and kissed at one point.”
So, could Koma be the one? We’ll have to wait and see, but for now, it’s just really great to see Duff so happy.
