Hilary Duff’s fiance grinds his teeth so badly the couple have to sleep in separate rooms.

The actress-and-singer – who got engaged to hockey player Mike Comrie when they were on holiday in February – is reportedly so frustrated with the noises which come from his side of the bed she’s forced him to get medical help.

And the 22-year-old star is said to be losing so much sleep because of Mike’s troublesome teeth she’s had to move onto the sofa to get her rest.

A source dished: “It makes the most awful, nails-on-chalkboard noise. Mike has agreed to see his doctor about getting a mouth guard so Hilary can rest easy.”

Despite stressing about her sleepless nights, Hilary is very “relaxed” about her wedding plans and is keeping calm ahead of the big day.

Her sister Haylie Duff recently revealed: “She’s really relaxed and wants something comfortable and great. She’s just so excited to be engaged. We’ve started talking about the wedding stuff, but she’s still just really happy in this sort of phase. It’ll be a while, but it’s fun to talk about it and think about it.”

While on vacation in Hawaii with her boyfriend, Hilary Duff had no idea her relationship status was about to change from “girlfriend” to “fiancée.”

“She was completely surprised,” Hilary’s sister Haylie Duff said Saturday in Las Vegas. “I don’t think that happens all the time. I think most of the time people figure it out or have some idea that it’s going to happen, and I think it’s great he was able to do a surprise like that for her.”

In fact, the whole family was surprised, yet excited, when Duff’s hockey player boyfriend Mike Comrie, 29, proposed to his girlfriend of more than two years in Hawaii, she said.

“I adore him,” Haylie said before celebrating her 25th birthday at Hard Rock Hotel’s Vanity Nightclub. “He’s wonderful.”

Though she didn’t know the details of the proposal, the older of the Duff sisters said it was “very romantic.”

Whether Haylie will be a bridesmaid at her 22-year-old sister’s wedding remains to be seen. “They just got engaged a few days ago. I don’t even know if she’s thinking of the wedding yet.”
