Malin Åkerman has admitted she’s not ready for a “real relationship” just yet after splitting with Roberto Zincone, the father of her son, in 2013.

The 36-year-old Rock of Ages actress is mother to two-year-old son Sebastian, who she shares with estranged husband Roberto Zincone.

Malin filed for divorce from Roberto in 2013 and for the past year and a half she’s been focusing on redefining what love means to her.

“Essentially, I’ve had a really nice year of self love, not to sound cheesy,” she told People magazine. “Getting in touch with me and my son and being a mom and meeting new people.”

Malin was most recently romantically linked to fellow actor Colin Egglesfield.

But The Final Girls star notes she’s not very interested in pursuing anything serious at the moment when it comes to affairs of the heart.

“I don’t know that I’m ready to get into a real relationship just yet because I’m just figuring out this amazing relationship with my son that is beyond any love you felt in your whole life,” Malin explained.

“Whenever you compartmentalise things by saying, ‘A mom in my 30s and dating,’ it’s crazy. You can’t do that to yourself. It’s more about figuring out what’s happening right now and getting into this new lifestyle. I’m really loving it and focusing on work and my son.”

Malin’s toddler Sebastian is certainly following in his mother’s entertainment footsteps.

The actress thinks her little boy is hilarious.

“Man, he’s got a sense of humour,” she gushed.

“He’s trying to pull jokes. He’ll do silly things then look at me and say, ‘What? That’s crazy!’ That’s been real fun.

“He’ll put his car in the water and he’ll go, ‘That’s crazy.’ He’s pulling at the comedy strings now. That’s a fun shift from being a sponge and soaking things into now dealing the cards.”
