The 36-year-old mom of two opened up to the publication about the complexities of splitting up with the father of her son, Bingham Bellamy, 4, and revealed they came to a decision to end their engagement because their relationship just wasn't very strong.

"Relationships ending are painful, and you can choose to carry that or you can choose to reframe it," the rom-com actress revealed. "If Matt and I had a great relationship, we would still be together, but we chose to move on because we had different visions of how we wanted to live our lives."

But while their romantic relationship wasn't destined to be, as parents, she and Bellamy were committed to creating a friendship that would benefit her youngest son (she also has an 11-year-old son, Ryder Robinson, with ex-husband Chris Robinson).

"That doesn't mean, though, that we can't rebuild something that would be the best thing for the kids," she says of her and Bellamy's split. "We said, 'We need to try to create something for the kids where they feel like they're gaining something rather than losing something.'"

And so far, things seem to be going according to plan.

"It's been a seamless transition," the Almost Famous actress revealed. "Kids just want to see their parents be cool. Everybody's cool; everybody's good."

But the blonde beauty is certainly not ruling out the chance of finding love in the future.

"Being someone who has come from a broken family and has a stepfather, I really benefited from having that very consistent [presence] in my life," she said. "It's something I am mindful of and want in my life."
