"The older I got, when that kept not happening to me, I was heartbroken for a lot of years," she said. 

The star confessed that while she was incredibly happy with her career, a family was what she really wanted.

"You work in a job like ours and it's so public, people think, 'Oh my gosh, that must have been the thing that you focused on your whole life. That must have been your dream. That must have been the only thing you worked for,'" she added.

"In the end, all I ever wanted was just to have a family."

And we are so happy you have yours!
