But when ET’s Deidre Behar caught up with the actor at The Paley Center for Media’s Tribute to Hispanic Achievements in Television, Presented by Verizon, on Monday night, he had nothing but kind words for his ex.

“Honestly, I only wish nothing but the most incredible things for her,” Valderrama said.

The That ‘70s Show alum also admitted that he’s “behind” when it comes to starting a family as his co-stars, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, prepare for baby No. 2.

While Valderrama is the only That '70s Show standout who is not currently engaged or married, he did note that starting a family is "definitely" a goal for him.

“I definitely think that it's in the future, for sure,” Valderrama told ET of settling down. “I mean, right now I'm so incredibly blessed and focused to have such a road professionally...I couldn't be happier where I am.”

Valderrama is currently starring in three shows, including Netflix’s The Ranch, in which he’s reunited with Kutcher and ‘70s Show co-star Danny Masterson.

“It's incredible because to recreate that magic in comedy is hard, specifically when you move on to another comedy,” he said. “I mean that's one of the reasons why I haven't done comedy since That ‘70s Show, because I've been really, kind of, you know, scared about that a little bit because we had something that that just never happens, you know?”

His split with Lovato appears amicable. The singer posted a joint statement to fans in June announcing their break up.

“This was an incredibly difficult decision for both of us, but we have realized more than anything that we are better as best friends,” the exes wrote at the time. “We will always be supportive of one another.”
