“I just don’t have—I’m happy. We’re married. We’ve got kids and a family and we’ve got to find our time together alone,” the 35-year-old, wearing DVF, said when asked when she will tie the knot. “We are in it. I think if we do get married it will be for the kids, really. For us, we’re just happy.”

“I know that’s not really necessarily a golden ticket but there is something beautiful about the security of marriage,” she continued. “And we’ll get there when we get there.”

Hudson and Bellamy, 36, got engaged in April 2011 and welcomed son Bingham three months later. The couple went through a rough patch in January, but a source told Us the pair had worked through their issues, and were “so in love” in April.

During the ABC talk show, the Something Borrowed actress also discussed her family’s dynamic. (She’s also mom to 10-year-old son Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson, the frontman for The Black Crowes.)

“I wouldn’t say I’m conventional, but then again what is conventional these days? I’ve got two children from two different fathers so that’s definitely unconventional,” she said. “I’m actually a strict parent. I’m very strict. I’m strict when it comes to manners. I don’t like—think kids get too much too fast,” she explained. “So Ryder of course wants a cell phone like every 10-year-old kid now. It starts around 10 and I’m just like ‘You can get a pager.’ He can get a pager when he’s 12.”

Hudson conveyed the same sentiment when she spoke to Editorialist magazine in May, but noted that the couple would marry “sooner rather than later.”

“I’m planning nothing right now. I’m so busy, we’ve been so busy and it’s been great. I come from an unconventional family—they’re not married, my parents aren’t married,” she told the mag. (Hudson’s mother Goldie Hawn and partner Kurt Russell have been together for over three decades.) “So there’s a part of me that goes, if I’m going to do it, I’m going to do it right,” Hudson added. “And I’m going to take the time to really plan it right.”
