Raven-Symoné wishes she had more time at home with her partner AzMarie Livingston – but not just because they’re in love.

“I refuse to binge-watch shows with anyone unless it’s my partner because I need to watch it when I need to watch it,” The View co-host tells PEOPLE. “Right now, I can’t watch the rest of Suits because I gotta wait for her. I’m like, ‘I want to watch it now!’ ”

This peek into her home life is rare from the former Cosby Show star, 29, who is notoriously quiet about her personal life.

Even after a 2012 tabloid published a story that she was living with Livingston, the Disney veteran stayed mum about her sexual orientation until a short Tweet in 2013 and an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2014.

But in the midst of an interview with PEOPLE, she can’t help but gush about Livingston, a former America’s Next Top Model contestant who is currently filming season 2 of Empire.

“My partner is in a show that people are going ape crazy for,” she says – and she knows from experience after guest-starring on the hit Fox series last February. “I’m proud of her.”

The actress isn’t exactly sure what the future holds for her, but she’s certainly started thinking more about settling down and having kids now that her Facebook feed has become increasingly inundated with wedding and baby photos.

“I’ll get there one day,” she says with a smile.

For now, it’s home for more binge-watching.

“I’m about to get on [Netflix’s new series] Sense8,” she says. “I’ve been hearing really good things.”
