Glee star Jane Lynch said she 'loves being married' to partner Lara Embry after getting wed last year.
The 50-year-old tied the knot with Embry in Massachusetts in May last year after dating for two years.
Asked how she's enjoying married life, she said to UK's Closer magazine: 'I love being married. I always wanted to have a partner and somebody to walk through life with.
'And I really didn't have that before I met Lara. It feels like we've been together forever.'
The couple are raising Embry's daughter Haden, eight, and Lynch added that she never thought she would be a parent.
She said: 'I wasn't much of a child person before. I loved dogs much more. The minute I meet a dog, I'm in love and I could take that dog home. And children have been like, [smiling] cute.
'So it had to be a very special child for me to want to do it - and she is.'
