She’s the star of a hit TV show, but that’s not enough to make Kate Walsh feel complete.
The Private Practice star says she’s expected to be settled down and have kids by now.

Walsh says she expected more of a balance between her Hollywood career and her personal life. “I thought I’d be married and have three or four kids,” she admits. “I always knew I wanted to be an actress, but I think I always wanted a quote-unquote normal life.”
