'That's not real. There's no way it's real!' she thought the first time Mike Comrie presented her with the huge rock.
Hilary Duff was stunned when her new husband proposed and handed her a massive diamond ring - because she was convinced the glittering gem was fake. The singer/actress married ice hockey star Mike Comrie in August, six months after he asked for her hand in marriage during a romantic break in Hawaii in February.
But Duff admits she had to take a closer look at ring once she accepted Comrie's proposal, because she couldn't believe such a huge stone could be real. She tells Access Hollywood, "I was kind of scared to look at (the ring)! I got a glance and it was like, 'Are you crazy? Are you kidding me? That's not real. There's no way it's real!' "
"I don't actually know (the carat size). I wasn't like, 'Now, how many carats is this?' " The ring is rumored to be worth a staggering $1 million.
