Remember that time your parents found that pack of cigarettes in your room, and you told them you were just holding them for a friend? It didn't work then, but Hilary Duff really hopes you believe the excuse this time.

Photographers snapped photos of the 24-year-old new mom with a lit cigarette in hand outside Rock & Reilly’s Irish Pub in Los Angeles on Friday.

Though there are many celebrities who love to puff away, Duff wasn't thought to be one of them.

The actress, who welcomed her first child into the world in March, has been working hard at the gym trying to lose the baby weight. Though she recently told Us Weekly, she wasn't going to do anything drastic to shed the pounds, could she be trying to speed things up with the help of a little nicotine?

Perish the thought! Though she was only spotted with a cigarette, the former Disney star tries to remain a role model, and Duff took to Twitter on Monday morning to clear up the incident:

It's OK, Hilary -- we believe you.
