The "One Tree Hill" actress, who shares two children, Jace, 4, and Jolie, 7, with her ex-husband Mike Caussin, agreed, but she didn't think it was likely due to her previous experience with miscarriage.

With genuine vulnerability, Kramer expressed her fear stating, "I would love that, but if it's something of really wanting it, I don't want you to be like, 'Oh, I should have been with someone else' because I, as a woman who has had a bunch of miscarriages, I feel broken."

She added, per People, "I know I'm a woman, but when you miscarry that many times, you're like, 'Am I? Because I can't even carry a baby. I don't want to relive that again, feeling that way. That was awful."

"He would take Jace to school; he would do drop-offs," she said. "He and Mike would coordinate with soccer and drop-offs. I was so sick. [He got me] anything I wanted, food-wise."
