Kate Walsh in Marie ClaireIn a world dominated by certain celebrities getting unnecessary plastic surgery and wearing no pants to clubs, Kate Walsh is a breath of fresh air.

The former member of the Grey's Anatomy cast, who now stars on Private Practice, turned 40 on Saturday and says she had no angst about the milestone.

"Probably, honestly, I would have cared more if I were still single," the star tells Marie Claire.

"But I've also been working through all the big things that you grapple with as a female. I feel I'm in such a place of peace in my life that 40 feels like a great marker of a great year."

Kate Walsh says she had let the idea of marriage go - until she met Alex Young, 36, a co-president of film production at 20th Century Fox.

"I met him, and I knew unequivocally," she says. "Is that strange? I used to want to hit people who said, 'You know when you know' about someone. It made me want to throw up. But I'm the annoying one now."

Kate Walsh and Alex Young moved in together just a month later, got engaged in May, and made it official when they got married Labor Day weekend.

BIRTHDAY GIRL: Kate Walsh was all smiles Saturday, her big 4-0.

The beautiful Private Practice star describes her new husband as "super intelligent, super smart, very handsome" and "a true gentleman."

"It's so easy to be cynical, but it's not how he lives," she says. "I've always known I've needed someone who lived from his heart."

Assuming you've stopped laughing after the series premiere of Reaper - and you're welcome for that suggestion, by the way - take a look at the television match-up on tap for tonight:

In one corner, we have Michelle Ryan and Bionic Woman. A remake of a hit series from the 1970s, this action-packed drama stars the British actress as a newly robotic fighting machine. And if that weren't enough to entice viewers, there's a special guest star appearing for few episodes:

Isaiah Washington.

We wonder which sexual preference he'll insult this time.

Opposing Bionic Woman at 9 p.m. tonight (it's a good thing they make DVRs now, huh?) is Private Practice, the Grey's Anatomy spin-off starring Kate Walsh.

It looks to be a bit more comedic than its predecessor, but don't worry, ladies, there' still a round of McHotties to keep you interested. Taye Diggs and Tim Daly are pieces of eye candy that are just about as tasty as they come.

You can't see Michelle Ryan nude or Kate Walsh nude tonight. But you can see these actresses star in their hit new shows.

No, it can even happen to insanely hot, accomplished actresses and models. What were Kate Walsh and Heidi Klum thinking about when they were getting their hair done for the Emmys, huh? Come on, ladies. Too many margaritas and sappy stories about your weddings to Alex Young and Seal, respectively?

We don't know what caused this mishap, but some celebrity fashion expert thought it'd be cool if they took the Private Practice star and one of the hottest models on Earth and made the sides of their heads look like they were vomiting up hair. 

Don't get us wrong. We'd still love to see either Kate Walsh or Heidi Klum nude. But this hair style has just got to go. Who's is worse? Kate Walsh or Heidi Klum?

Ken Paves best be advised.... If these two statuesque beauties can't pull off a "hot" new look, then it probably won't look good on your average woman.

Now just another old married lady, Kate Walsh wishes her wedding could have been a never-ending affair.

"I had an amazing time," the Private Practice star told Extra.

Walsh married movie executive Alex Young, 36, over Labor Day weekend, with the couple exchanging vows before 100 guests - including Walsh's former Grey's Anatomy costars Katherine Heigl, Chandra Wilson, Sara Ramirez, Justin Chambers and the show's creator, Shonda Rhimes.

"First when you walk down the aisle, that was pretty powerful," Walsh says. "To have a church full of everybody that is near and dear to me and that I love and that loves us and seeing his face!"

Having now experienced her big day, "I see why people have week-long weddings," Kate Walsh says. "Let's just keep it going."

As for recent celebrity gossip rumors that the lovely Kate Walsh - seen with Alex Young in this picture from the Emmy Awards last night - is expecting?

"A baby, no. We might get a new puppy, though," Kate says. "For now, we are just excited to spend time with each other."

That's a good approach. The last thing you want is to end up with a couple of adorable little mistakes like Britney Spears. Then go insane.

Kate Walsh, the redheaded star of Grey's Anatomy and its new spin-off, Private Practice, gave her new husband, movie executive Alex Young, a private anatomy lesson, if you will, at their L.A. abode. Now that's some (Mc)steamy stuff!

Kate Walsh, Neil Andrea

Walsh married Young in Ojai, Calif. September 1, but on this day, she let it all hang out in a baby blue string bikini, drink in hand, on the front lawn of the new house the couple just bought. Now this here is one practice she shouldn't keep private!

Kate says she's on cloud nine with her new husband and her new series set to debut September 27. We can certainly see why. Follow the link to read more about the Walsh-Young wedding in an interview with the sexy star of Private Practice.

They got engaged after just one month of dating, and just three months later, actress Kate Walsh and her film exec fiancee Alex Young are married.

No, it's not a classic Britney Spears and Jason Alexander (who got married for all of 55 hours in Las Vegas), tale but it was a fast courtship nonetheless.

For Kate Walsh and Alex Young, the wedding took place Saturday, September 1, at Ojai Presbyterian Church in Ojai, Calif., and the reception was held at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa afterward.

Several of Kate Walsh's former fellow Grey's Anatomy stars, including Katherine Heigl and fiance Josh Kelley, as well as T.R. Knight, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr., Justin Chambers and wife Keisha, along with the show's creator, Shonda Rhimes, were in attendance at the event, which we learned about only a week ago.

Also attending were actress Kate Beckinsale and her director husband, Len Wiseman. Reports indicate that approximately 110 guests were on hand.

A lavish reception was scheduled to follow at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa's Casa Elar, a Spanish-style estate where guests enjoyed sit-down dinners.

Wedding planner Jo Gartin, of Love Luck and Angels, had decorated the estate with hundreds of candles for an intimate atmosphere, People reports..

Kate Walsh, 39, will play her Grey's Anatomy character, Addison Montgomery, on a spin-off series set to debut on ABC on September 26, Private Practice.

Just last week, the busy and beautiful actress told Entertainment Tonight that with her career and her engagement to Alex Young, "I'm living a dream."

Alex Young, 35, is a production executive at Fox. His proposal to Kate Walsh in May was discovered when reporters spotted her wearing an engagement ring at a TV event.

A mere four months after Kate Walsh became engaged to her fiance, 20th Century Fox film executive Alex Young, the two are officially tying the knot.

The former Grey's Anatomy and current Private Practice actress' nuptials are set for this weekend at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa in California!

The lovely Kate Walsh, 39, who has won raves for her portrayal of Dr. Addison Montgomery on both shows, began dating Alex Young, 36, earlier this year.

A pair of her pals and former Grey's Anatomy stars, Sara Ramirez and Katherine Heigl, are reportedly planning on attending the three-day event.

Kate Walsh and Alex Young: Very much in love.

Walsh and Young dated only a few months before getting engaged, then bought a new house together, and now are making it official. When you know, you know, right?

The hotly-anticipated series premiere of Private Practice is set for Wednesday, September 26. Grey's Anatomy returns for its fourth season the next night.

Grey's Anatomy will be missing more than just Walsh, who left to start her own spin-off. Isaiah Washington, who was axed from the drama for being insane, will instead be guest starring on Bionic Woman - which premieres opposite Private Practice.

"Are you guys talking about me?" asks the beautiful and talented Kate Walsh, with faux fire flashing in her eyes.

"'Cause I don't trust a-one of you!"

Kate Walsh Nude

On Sunday, the actress, who shares the same sassy of her Grey's Anatomy alter ego, Dr. Addison Montgomery, played host to a large, rather loud table of actors.

Fortunately, Isaiah Washington was not on hand.

The occasion is her first-ever sit-down dinner with the cast of her new and controversial Grey's Anatomy spin-off, Private Practice.

But, as TV Guide reports, the group already seems like a rowdy, frat-house style family even if they've only finished one week of shooting.

Kate Walsh is then shot down about the topic of discussion.

"No, you egomaniac," says her old friend and fellow cast member, Paul Adelstein.  "But I gotta tell you, that dress you've got on is very good for the boobs!"

This line could easily have come straight out of Grey's Anatomy, but if Shonda Rhimes, executive producer of both shows, is serious about the "lighter, more comedic tone" of Private Practice, it could also be a line from her new series.

Isaiah Washington has some anger management issues.

He claims they fired the wrong guy, but regardless of the nature of the gay slur he made on the Grey's Anatomy set, ABC decided it wasn't worth keeping the crazy one around for the upcoming season of the hit medical drama.

Since then, he hasn't exactly done much to prove this was a bad decision on the network's part, comparing himself to Malcolm X on the talk show circuit and showing general disdain for the press and former colleagues along the way.

It's only a matter of time until he snaps. We've already seen him lurking in the shadows, plotting revenge against Grey's creator Shonda Rhimes. Now it's a former co-star - so innocent and beautiful - who may find the wrath of Isaiah unleashed upon her …

As you can see, an angry Washington is looking to instill punishment and take out every one of his former Grey's Anatomy co-stars, one at a time. First up is Private Practice star Kate Walsh, who's about to get leveled by an uppercut. Somebody call a medic!

The celebrity gossip mill is turning out one pregnancy rumor after another these days.

Scariest of all, of course, is the prospect that skeletal famous person, Nicole Richie, might actually be knocked up with Joel Madden's love child. Questions are already abounding regarding which would weigh more: the mother-to-be or the fetus?

Meanwhile, Hugh Hefner's top girlfriend might also be preggers. Playboy insiders are denying it, but Holly Madison has made no secret over the fact that she wants to bear the ancient stud a baby. We're having trouble picturing Kendra Wilkinson as an aunt, though.

Now, Kate Walsh appears to be throwing her tummy into the celebrity pregnancy ring. Here is the Private Practice star with fiance Alex Young and - gasp! - he's got his hand on her stomach.

This can mean one of three things:

  1. The actress will be squeezing out her own little Jayden James any month now.
  2. Walsh has grown inspired by the attention former co-star Katherine Heigl has received for her role in Knocked Up and wants to emulate the film in real life.
  3. Young is merely hugging his lovely woman from behind.

Which do you think it is? While The Hollywood Gossip staff leans toward harmless option number-three, Kim Kardashian begs to differ. How come?

Because her experiences involving any show of affection from behind certainly don't look like this.
