Alyssa Milano: Motherhood transforms love

Alyssa Milano reveals her concept of love was forever altered after she gave birth to her and husband David Bugliari’s son Milo.

The 40-year-old actress shares 21-month-old son Milo with her husband David Bugliari.

Alyssa was convinced she had an accurate view on love and relationships before her child arrived.

“You think you know what love is before you have [kids] and then you have the baby and it completely shatters whatever concept of [what] love was before you met them,” she told People magazine.

Alyssa didn’t stress out about losing all the pounds she gained from pregnancy.

She didn’t feel the need to fit a beauty archetype after giving birth.

“I just was very kind to myself and gave myself a lot of time. No pressure,” she explained.

“I find any sort of weight loss is about eating less and moving more, so I just did that and took my time.

“Our bodies are not made to look good in a string bikini! Our bodies are made to nurture and cuddle and all of those amazing things that come along with being a mum.”

Alyssa is unsure whether she will expand her family anytime soon.

Caring for Milo is incredibly fulfilling at this time.

“I’m enjoying this one right now,” she said. “We’re talking about baby number two, but we’re not actively trying yet.”
