Danica McKellar stopped by ABC News on Thursday to promote her new math book, "Girls Get Curves," and to dish on her personal life.
The actress and mathematician, best known for playing ultimate girl next door Winner Cooper on "The Wonder Years," talked to ABC News about how she is adjusting to life after divorce.
“I’ve only been divorced a year and half,” she said. “Maybe for some people that’s a long time, but it’s not really for me. I’m really focused on being a good mom and if the dating thing happens, then alright.”
And even though she may not be ready for a romantic relationship just yet, she does have one leading man in her life that she couldn't help but rave about -- her son Draco.
“I’m not even biased, I’m telling you he’s a great kid,” she said. “He learns new words every day. He’s super polite. He says, “Mommy, may I have some more blueberries please?” He’s amazing, the best thing I ever did.”
McKellar has been keeping busy since the split was finalized; she recently filmed a music video with Avril Lavigne and has been spotted filming her new movie, "The Wrong Woman," in Los Angeles. The actress also appeared on "Secret Life Of The American Teenager" earlier this year.

Peter Facinelli filed for divorce from Jennie Garth in March 2012, after 11 years of marriage and three children together. In November 2012, the former "90210" actress sat down with Jeff Probst to discuss her newly single status. "The minute I think I’m ready to start dating I’m like, 'Oh no you’re not,'" she told the host. "I just don't know how to date," she later admitted. But apparently Garth is learning the ropes once again. She is rumored to be dating Big Giant drummer Jeremy Salken.
Louis C.K. and painter Alix Bailey divorced in 2008. In a 2010 interview with NPR's Terry Gross, the comedian opened up about his experience dating again after the split. "You sort of feel like you just got out of prison," C.K. explained. "And they give you the suit you were convicted in. And they give you a paper bag with a watch and a wallet in it. And they give you eight bucks and a bus ticket and the cars are going way too fast and you can't cross the street -- and you're considering going into a motel and hanging yourself after carving your initials. And you know, there's not a lot of women my age who're single. If they're single it's because something happened -- or didn't happen -- so I started immediately dating women who were younger than me. That's a very strange dynamic. And from their point of view, it's like they're dating a dead person. It's like a corpse. That's how I see myself through their eyes."
Eva Longoria filed for divorce from NBA basketball player Tony Parker in November 2010 amid rumors of his infidelity. In May 2012, the former "Desperate Housewives" star sat down with Amanda de Cadenet to talk about re-entering the dating world post-split. "I remember a friend of mine got divorced right before me when it wasn't even on my radar to be divorced and I go, 'How exciting! Aren't you excited? You get to date people, you get to have a first kiss, a first date, a first sex with somebody. Isn't that great? It's gonna be fun!'" Longoria said. "And she was like, 'No, I'm terrified.' I'm like, 'Why?' She's beautiful, she's gorgeous, she's smart. And then when I got divorced, she was like, 'Aren't you excited?' And I was like, 'No, f*** you! Don't give me my advice!'"
Eddie Cibrian filed for divorce from Brandi Glanville -- his wife of eight years -- in August 2009. In October 2012, the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star spoke to Us Weekly about her difficulties navigating the dating world after divorce. "I don't really 'date,'" she said. "What is that? I make out! It's hard to meet guys because they want to date you because you are on TV, or there are guys who like you but don't want anything to do with you because you are on TV. It's a hard road."
Zooey Deschanel filed for divorce from Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard in December 2011 after two years of marriage. The "New Girl" star talked about returning to the dating game in the May 2012 issue of Marie Claire. “Honestly, I’m just going through a divorce, so I don’t really think that’s something I want to get into now," Deschanel said. "I don’t have time to date. I literally –- don’t-have-time."
After 11 years of marriage, Courteney Cox and David Arquette announced their separation in October 2010.

"I love restaurants, I love to have people over to my house. But I'm not really one to do a lot of stuff -- so I don't know how that all that happens... that part's a little difficult." The estranged couple filed for divorce in June 2012.
