SplashNews.comAlthough they don’t know about her troubled past, Jodie’s two girls will be well-informed, if they choose to ask.

Jodie Sweetin struggled with drug and alcohol addiction on and off for over a decade, but now that she is fully recovered and the mother to two beautiful girls, Zoie, 3, and Beatrix, 8 months, she wants to focus on her future.

“[My struggles are] pretty much in the past,” The former Full House star tells People. “Hopefully, it’ll never be anything my kids have to be a part of. I wish I hadn’t gone through that, but I did.”

And although Jodie won’t “sit down and talk to my kids about it preemptively or anything,” she won’t lie to them if they ask her, either.

“I’ve been really open about what I’ve gone through in general, so if they ask me about it, I’ll be open with them, too,” Jodie says. “I don’t think there’s any reason to hide it. It’s nothing I’m ashamed of. But just like with various people my own age, I’m not just going to go out of my way to talk about it with my kids.”

Jodie is moving forward and enjoying her life as a mom of two and soon-to-be wife to Beatrix’s father, Morty Coyle, who she describes as “wonderful and fantastic.”

“My life is so good that I’m not missing out on anything,” she says. “I finally got to a point in my life where I go to bed at, like, 10:30. To me, a nice night at home is watching American Idol, reading a book and sleeping. Now, I don’t think anything in the world could be better than what I have.”

And if you’re wondering if one more baby would make her life even more complete, stop wondering. “I think I’m done having kids,” Jodie admits. “If I had more, it would be in a few years from now, but I think I’m good.”

We’re proud of Jodie and happy she’s finally content.
