While Kate has her hands full right now with three children, a busy career and a future wedding to plan for, she hasn't completely ruled out having more children in the future.

Although she didn't have a plan - and perhaps still doesn't - at the time she confessed: "He needs a boy. He needs his own boy."

She's also the first to admit she saw herself as a mom of many and said during an interview: "I always thought I'd have four to six kids.

"That was like, when I was really little, I thought that. When you come from a big family… you either don't want kids or you want a lot of kids. So I always thought I'd have [more kids]."


The Hollywood couple live in LA

The actress lives in Los Angeles with her children and fiancé Danny Fujikawa, in the house where she grew up.

Kate lives nearby to Goldie and Kurt, and enjoys nothing more than hanging out with them. Revealing just what a fun mom Goldie is, the actress revealed on Today that she is "on speed-dial" for nights out, as nobody is quite as up for a party as she is.
