Shannen Doherty is in no rush to start a family with her new husband Kurt Iswarienko because she's not ready to "share" the photographer with anyone else.
The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star wed Iswarienko in October (11) and their nuptials and life as newlyweds has been documented for her reality show The Shannen Doherty Project.
The 40 year old insists she would love to one day have children but admits she treasures romantic moments with her husband too much to become a mum just yet.
She tells PR.com, "We both want kids. First and foremost for both of us is spending time with each other. We're newlyweds and we really want to enjoy (this) time.
"I'm fortunate enough to be with a man who is like a poet. He'll go surfing super early in the morning when I'm still asleep and I wake up to this beautiful note that he's left behind to let me know how much he loves me and how much he's going to miss me for the three hours he's gone. I don't know if I want to share that yet. And he doesn't want to share me quite yet.
"We both want children, but more importantly, we want each other and we want to be with each other. Whatever else happens is fate and a blessing, but right now I think we're both so happy being married and together, and that's our focus."
And Shannen Doherty, who has been married twice before, reveals she's not opposed to adoption if she struggles to conceive naturally: "If it's meant to be it's meant to be. If I'm meant to be a mum the traditional route then I'll be a mum the traditional route. If not, then there are plenty of children in this world and in this country that need a loving home and stable parents. I have no issues with adoption. It will happen however it's meant to happen for us."
