The Breaking News
Alyssa Milano is going to be a mom! The actress, 38, and her husband Dave Bugliari, 32, are expecting their first child, Milano's rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively. "They're just over the moon," says a friend of the Who's The Boss and Charmed alum, who's due in early fall. "They are so excited." Milano and Bugliari – an agent at the Creative Artists Agency – wed in August 2009 in New Jersey after meeting three years prior.
Alyssa Milano loves her first pregnancy so much that
she's already got more babies on the brain. And from the sound of it, she's
thinking a lot babies. Read on to find out what the mommy-to-be just told me
about adding to the brood sooner than later, picking out baby names and the
unexpected parenting advice she got from a certain celebrity dad at the
unlikeliest of places…"I've had such a great time being pregnant that you're
probably going to see me more pregnant than not in the next few years because
I'm really digging it," Milano told me earlier this week at Unicef's Playlist
with the A-List benefit at L.A.'s El Rey Theater.
Milano is six months pregnant with her and husband Dave Bugliari's first baby, a baby boy to be exact. "We have five names picked out because we aren't going to name him until we see him," she said."We hear so many nightmare stories about people that have that name set and then they see the baby! Someone told me this story the other day about that they had like a new sort of name picked out like Skylar and then he came out and he was like 10 1/2 pounds and he looked like a little bruiser and they were like, ‘We can't name our kid Skylar. He's more like a Ben or a Charlie.' "
Milano plans to return to work, she just doesn't know when. She laughed because she received some great advice the other day while talking to Heavy D at a Sean "Diddy" Combs concert.
"I want to really enjoy my child," she said. "Everyone keeps telling me how fast it goes by and to spend as much time with them as possible. And here was Heavy D, you know this big strong guy, talking about how fast his daughter's childhood went by," Milano continued. "He was like, ‘In a blink of the eye so take as much time as you need.'"
And as much broccoli as you need while preggers. Shortly after announcing in February that she was expecting, Milano told us she couldn't stop craving the green vegetable. "Yup, I still have that one," she smiled. "I've been eating a lot of sautéed broccoli with garlic and broccoli. I wish I had new cravings that were exciting."
The Magical Moments
There's a new boss in Alyssa Milano's house: her baby boy! The actress, 38, and husband David Bugliari welcomed a son named Milo Thomas Bugliari on Wednesday at 9:27 a.m. He weighed 7 lbs., and was 19 inches long. In March, Milano announced on Twitter that she was expecting a boy. The actress told PEOPLE she was having a lovely pregnancy and knew her husband would be "the most amazing father ever." And before she even met her son, he was already making her laugh. Milano told PEOPLE in May, "Every time I get an ultrasound, he's doing really funny things like sucking his thumb or elbowing me." Milano and Hollywood agent Bugliari wed in 2009, and this is the first child for both.
"Milano told PEOPLE in May, “Every time I get an ultrasound, he’s doing really funny things like sucking his thumb or elbowing me.”
Post Pregnancy Scoops
"Though Alyssa Milano's baby boy has been welcomed into the world, her pregnancy days likely aren't over for long. While many women struggle with pregnancy the actress says she is "digging it" and planning for more babies! "
Even before Alyssa Milano's baby boy arrived
Wednesday the actress was planning a future brother or sister for him -- perhaps
more than one! Alyssa Milano, who shared this photo of herself and husband David
Bugliari out on a "date night" last month on her personal blog, isn't planning
to hustle back to work now that son Milo has arrived. In fact, she's planning
multiple rounds of pregnancy and maternity leave. "I've had such a great [time]
being pregnant that you're probably going to see me more pregnant than not in
the next few years because I'm really digging it," Alyssa Milano told E! Online
this past spring.
Looks like so far the new mom and baby Milo are wrapped up in love at first sight. "Thank you for all the well wishes for my son Milo," she tweeted Wednesday. "My heart has tripled in size. I love him more than all the leaves on all the trees." The 38-year-old received advice on taking her time returning to work from some unusual sources after bumping into Heavy D and Sean "Diddy" Combs at a concert.
"I want to really enjoy my child," Alyssa Milano explained. "Everyone keeps telling me how fast it goes by and to spend as much time with them as possible. And here was Heavy D, you know this big strong guy, talking about how fast his daughter's childhood went by. He was like, 'In a blink of the eye so take as much time as you need.'" How long did you take for maternity leave?
Congratulations to Alyssa Milano on the birth of baby Milo!
