Teri Hatcher Dating Again After Years As A Single Mom


Teri Hatcher may be ready to leave the "single mom" moniker behind.

The twice-divorced actress, whose voice can now be heard in Disney's new animated movie "Planes," spoke to The Mirror recently about how her life is changing now that her daughter, Emerson Rose, is in her teens.

Although she is not currently seeing anyone, Hatcher said she is ready to find someone to share her life with.

“I have been really fortunate to have some great experiences in my life, and I look forward to more, and I would really like to have someone special to share those with. I guess that’s what I’m looking for," she said. “I have a really good life and I’m really self-sufficient. I guess that’s a good place to come from -- to be happy and settled. I just want to share that.”

Hatcher told the paper that between her hectic film schedule for "Desperate Housewives" and raising her daughter alone, it was difficult to find the time to date. But now that the show is no longer on the air and her daughter is 15, Hatcher is hoping that the time is right to find a new life partner.

“My daughter is older and it feels like there is more energy right now to be available," she said. "So it will probably happen.”

Hatcher filed for divorce from Jon Tenney, Emerson Rose's dad and her husband of almost nine years, in March 2003. Hatcher was previously married to personal trainer Marcus Leithold for just over a year in the late 1980s.

Hatcher isn't the only "Desperate Housewives" alum to dish on her love life following the show's end. Eva Longoria went public with her relationship with Ernesto Arguello in July 2013, and Jesse Metcalfe opened up to YourTango about his fiancée, Carla Santana, on Wednesday.
