She thought she might have missed her chance to have any more kids,

The actress moved to Los Angeles shortly after her split to concentrate on her acting career. She's had roles in NBC crime drama Aquarius and film Curse of the Witching Tree.

She couldn't have expected to find love so soon, but fell head over heels with Nate. They met when she moved in next door to him.

"She thought she might have missed her chance to have any more kids," said a source.

"It's nice because Gary never wanted to have kids with her. That was one of the reasons they broke up."
