The former Lizzie McGuire star filed for divorce from ice hockey player Mike in February (15), ending their four-and-a-half-year marriage. The exes remain on good terms for the sake of their three-year-old son, Luca, and Hilary recently began dating again.

But she admits exchanging vows in the future is no longer at the top of her priority list.

“I don’t want to say I wouldn’t get married again, but it’s not important to me,” she explained to Redbook magazine. “I don’t feel I would need to be married to have another child. If I felt strongly enough toward someone or if someone felt strongly about it, I might say OK. But it’s not essential.”

Hilary also opened up about her struggle to balance work with life as a single mum.

“It’s hard to say that you really can have it all,” she sighs. “I think you can to a certain degree, but fully loaded, pedal-all-the-way-down is tough. You’re missing out on something, either on the career or on the family. When I’m really busy with work, I feel extremely guilty.”
