Former ALLY McBEAL star Calista Flockhart is still reluctant to make a return to acting - because she's having too much fun as a full-time mother.

The actress backed away from the spotlight when the acclaimed show came to an end in 2002, taking on the occasional project as she raised her four-year-old adopted son Liam.

And Flockhart admits that while she's often tempted to make a full return to screens, she still doesn't feel ready.

She says, "(Liam) is brilliant and beautiful. He's in preschool, and I think he's going to be fairly athletic..

"I want to work, but I'm really enjoying being a mom. And you can never get this time back."
