Malin Akerman is ''figuring out'' how to be a mother.

The 'Watchmen' star - who split from Robert Zincone, the father of her two-year-old Sebastian in 2013 - has revealed she isn't interested in starting up a serious relationship and prefers to focus all her energy on her son instead.

The blonde beauty said: ''I don't know that I'm ready to get into a real relationship just yet because I'm just figuring out this amazing relationship with my son that is beyond any love you felt in your whole life.

''Essentially, I've had a really nice year of self love, not to sound cheesy. Getting in touch with me and my son and being a mom and meeting new people.''

The 36-year-old actress - who was recently linked to actor Colin Egglesfield - added she is keen not to put a label on herself and just wants to take time to adapt to her ''new lifestyle''.

She explained to PEOPLE: ''Whenever you compartmentalize things by saying, 'A mom in my 30s and dating,' it's crazy. You can't do that to yourself. It's more about figuring out what's happening right now and getting into this new lifestyle.''
