Los Angeles | Actress-singer Hilary Duff is open to the idea of having a child out of wedlock, insisting marriage is not important to her after splitting from husband Mike Comrie.

The former Lizzie MCGuire star filed for divorce from ice hockey player Mike in February, 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 Duff recently began dating again.

I don’t want to say I wouldn’t get married again, but it’s not important to me. 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, she said.

Duff also opened up about her struggle to balance work with life as a single mother. It’s hard to say that you really can have it all. 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.
