Shannen Doherty’s life may seem charmed but the actress admits there’s one part missing: children. The 43-year-old settled down with photographer Kurt Iswarienko back in October 2011 and now she says they’re gearing up to tackle the brand new challenge of becoming parents!

“Kurt and I want kids,” Shannen tells In Touch. “We may adopt.”

Shannen, who played Prue Halliwell on Charmed and Brenda Walsh on Beverly Hills, 90210, was known for living life in the fast lane during her early years in Hollywood. Several stints in Playboy, a 2001 drunk driving conviction, and two failed marriages earned Shannen a less than squeaky clean reputation, which was made all the juicier thanks to her start as innocence personified on Little House on the Prairie at just 11 years old.

But Shannen made it through her many ups and downs and now is looking ahead to a bright future with her husband.

“He’s a good guy,” Shannen says, adding she knows he’ll make a great dad. “He finds me funny and I’m so not funny! That’s when you know you’re in love.”

We’re so happy to hear things are going well for Shannen! Can’t wait to meet those little Doherty-Iswarienkos if you all do adopt.
