Though at the moment she isn’t being linked romantically to anyone in particular, “Kate & Leopold” star Meg Ryansays she would like to have more children. The actress, who has a 9-year-old son, Jack, with ex-husband Dennis Quaid, told Reader’s Digest, “I’d love to have a daughter . . . I’d like to have another boy, too, but I’m glad I had a boy first. I think I’m a much more intact woman now than I was nine years ago when I gave birth to Jack. I think I’d be a better mom to a girl now than I would have been then.” As for her split from Quaid, 47, to whom she was married for 10 years, Ryan tells the magazine, “there’s some acrimony . . . but it’s not overwhelming.” At the time of their divorce, Ryan was being linked to Russell Crowe, though that relationship was short-lived. The two starred together in 2000’s “Proof of Life,” and Quaid was said to have been shattered when the marriage dissolved. But what keeps Ryan and Quaid behaving civilly toward each other, she admits, is their son. “I guess we’re just both so in love with our kid, and his innocence is important to both of us, that we really wanna preserve that for him,” she said. “And there’s a lotta love still all around, everywhere, but you know, it wasn’t working.”
