Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting caught some flack earlier this month when her Redbook magazine story dropped, and she said she doesn’t consider herself a feminist. She apologized on Instagram, but now she’s speaking out more.

“It was a three-and-a-half-hour conversation, and we had two sentences taken out,” the The Big Bang Theory star, 29, tells PEOPLE, suggesting her quotes were taken out of context.

“That was what I was saying before this whole Redbook debacle. If I could say all the words I wanted to, it was really meaning that as independent as I am – and I’ve made a career on my own without a man – I love being a wife. I love cooking for my husband. I feel like I have it all,” she says. “I feel very lucky that I’m able to do that. I enjoy both aspects.”

The actress, who married tennis pro Ryan Sweeting, 27, in 2013, is ready to move on from the hullabaloo.

Up next? She stars alongside Kevin Hart and Josh Gad in the new comedy The Wedding Ringer, in theaters Friday.

And Cuoco-Sweeting isn’t just focusing on her career: She and Sweeting would like to expand their family.

“Yeah, can’t wait. I love kids. My husband does, too. [I] can’t wait for that next part of my life,” she adds. “You never know. I’m always coming up with surprises! Probably not tomorrow, but sooner than later.”
