The "Lizzie McGuire" star then transitioned to the moment her son found out about her fame. She said it was when he came came home from school and cheekily told her he knew her "name."
“I think some little rascal at school told him what my name is,” Duff said. “Luca didn’t know my name, and then he said to me, ‘I know your name.’ And I said, ‘I know.’ And he [shakes head] said, ‘I know your name.’ And I was like, ‘Ok.’ And he was like, ‘Hilary Duff.’”
Audrey Hepburn's son,Luca Dotti, may be the child of one of the most esteemed actresses in Hollywood's history, but, for him, the Oscar-winning actress was simply known as "Mom" while growing up.
In fact, Luca didn't even know his mom's stage last name, Hepburn, and would frequently get confused when reporters would call her that, instead of her married last name, Dotti.
“To me, my mother was Audrey Dotti. I never realized she was Audrey Hepburn. I didn’t know she was a movie star," Luca toldPeoplein 2015. “I’d say, ‘I don’t know who you are talking about. You must be mistaken. My mother is called Dotti. I didn’t know she was Audrey Hepburn until I was 6 or so.”

"The moment where I realized it was slightly different was when I came to school one day, and I said, 'I was on set.' And they were like, 'You were on set?' I was like, 'Oh, is that a thing?' They were like, 'Yes, it's cool.' I think that was the moment I realized it was slightly different than what most parents do. I had a very normal childhood considering."
