Army Wives star Catherine Bell sits down with OK! for an interview in between shots, and chats about being a mom to daughter Gemma, 5, and how she “might want to” have another child.

On waiting 10 years into marriage to have a child: “My husband and I got married young. Then I hit 34 and it kicked in, “Oh my god, I want a baby so bad.” I got this radar where I would feel babies before they came into the room, so I knew I was ready.”

On the best part of being a mom: “When Gemma she comes up out of the blue and gives me a big hug and tells me she loves me, it’s really cool. She’s so sweet and loving. It’s fun to watch her grow and get her own ideas and opinions.”

On balancing work and motherhood: “It’s something I’m always striving to do better, and I make Gemma a priority. If I’m working long days, I’ll make sure my husband brings her and we hang out together on the set. If I have a half-day, I’ll pick her up from school and we’ll have a cupcake together. It’s not so much about the quantity, but the quality of time we spend together.”

On having more children: “We go back and forth. I’m an only child, so I’m fine with that. But I just loved every aspect of the last five years with Gemma. I might want to do it again.”

On turning 40 this year: “I think it’s great. For me, I do think every decade has gotten better. The 20s were the toughest because you’re trying to figure out what you’re going to do in your life, and the 30s you’re settling in. In your 40s, you have all the maturity and wisdom and you leave the rest behind. I certainly feel in better shape than I’ve ever been, and I feel more alive and energetic.”
