Kate Walsh seems to be a busy bee these days. On the one hand she's amidst her divorce proceedings while on the other, she's volunteering at a local children's hospital in Los Angeles so she gets some hands-on experience with parenting before she jumps into it.
The actress is separating from her husband Alex Young, whom she wed in September 2007.
But the 41-year-old star would love to become a mother, and thus has signed up for volunteer work at a baby unit in Los Angeles, to nurture her parenting skills.
"One of the things I have gotten into is volunteering at hospitals in L.A., helping with the infants who need human contact," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Redbook magazine.
She added: "A few weeks back, I was holding this little baby... I turned to the nurse and asked, 'Is there any way I can volunteer just to hold babies?'"
