Kate Walsh, known for her role in the television shows Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, says she expected she would be married with kids at this point in her life.
“I feel like a loser [for not having kids]. I would definitely love to be a parent,” Walsh, 43, told More magazine. “But I definitely don’t think I want to do it on my own.”
“I thought I’d be married and have three or four kids,” she says. “I always knew I wanted to be an actress, but I think I always wanted a quote-unquote normal life.”
Walsh married film executive Alex Young in 2007 after dating for just seven months. The couple divorced last year.
Walsh describes the divorce as “the worst thing ever,” but it also taught her a lot, including not to jump into things too quickly.
When asked about how she feels about aging in Hollywood, Walsh says, “It certainly requires you to take care of yourself. But I like to eat food, and I don’t diet. I do Pilates, and hike with my dog. As you get older, everything changes. Everything starts getting … looser. But I think it’s important to accept that. I’m lucky. I’ve got pretty good genes. But I think it’s a weird thing to fight it.”
