Happy birthday, Hilary Duff! The Disney actress-turned-singer is 27 today.

She first came to fame as Lizzie McGuire and recently hinted at a cast reunion. (We’re hoping her animated alter ego would be included!) Since then, Duff has taken on roles in both light-hearted movies (who can forget A Cinderella Story?) and, more recently, smaller independent films. The mom of 2-year-old Luca Cruz also has a musical career that’s taking off, with the release of "All About You," a catchy song that reflects her Texan roots.

In honor of her birthday, see her transformation from teen idol to America's sweetheart.
