She may be the star of very successful TV show, but for 43-year-old Private Practice actress, Kate Walsh, not having children at this point in her life has made her feel…less than adequate.
“I feel like a loser,” Walsh says in the April issue of More. “I would definitely love to be a parent. I thought I’d be married and have three or four kids.”
But unlike some of her peers in Hollywood, Kate says that she’s not keen on the idea of being a single mother.
“I definitely don’t think I want to do it on my own,” says the actress. “Things are just going to go the way they go. I always knew I wanted to be an actress, but I think I always wanted a quote-unquote normal life because I had a very untraditional upbringing.”
Though she has her sights set on a “traditional family,” Walsh isn’t in any rush to walk down the aisle again; especially after her very public split from her movie exec ex-husband, Alex Young, whom she divorced after 14 months of marriage.
“Oh my God — the worst thing ever,” says Kate of her split. “It was so public, and yet it was so legal-embroiled; you couldn’t talk about anything. I’ve learned to seek other people’s counsel more– that’s a good part of growing up.”
