She's the beautiful star of a hit TV show, but Kate Walsh says not having children yet weighs heavily on her.

"I feel like a loser," the 43-year-old Private Practice star tells April's More magazine. "I would definitely love to be a parent. I thought I'd be married and have three or four kids."

Still, Walsh isn't ready to go the route of Sandra Bullock and other single celeb moms.

"I definitely don't think I want to do it on my own," she says. "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."

And the actress, who split with her movie executive husband Alex Young after just 14 months in 2008, is certainly not rushing into another whirlwind romance.

"Oh my God -- the worst thing ever," Walsh says of her divorce. "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."
