Alyssa Milano Won’t Push Her Luck with a Third Baby: ‘I Have Two Healthy Children’

09/02/2015 at 12:30 PM ET

Alyssa Milano has a lot on her plate, but now she will be able to clean that plate with a little style.

The mother of two partnered with Viva Paper Towels to create Viva Signature Designs that are available now nationwide. “They’re modern and yet classic at the same time,” Milano told PEOPLE while promoting the collaboration Tuesday at The Palihouse in West Hollywood.

Those new, chic paper towels will come in handy sooner than later for Milano. On Friday, she will be celebrating daughter Elizabella Dylan‘s first birthday — and it sounds like it might get messy.

“We’re just going to get her a smash cake and let her eat sugar for the first time,” she shares.

And although Milano’s baby girl may be celebrating her first birthday, she already has her first fan: big brother Milo Thomas, 4.

“He just loves her so hard, he wants to smash her. It’s that kind of delicious like, ‘Oh I love her!’ ” the actress explains.

Milo may be in love with his little sister, but Milano knows Elizabella is lucky to have him as a sibling. “He’s the perfect big brother. I could not have asked for anything better,” she says of her son.

While she’s optimistic about the future relationship between the two, she’s proceeding with caution. “Who knows what’s going to happen when she can walk over and take his toy,” she jokes. “But right now, he’s just so madly in love with her and she worships everything that he does. It’s so sweet.”

When it comes to having fun as a family, the foursome — including Milano’s husband David Bugliari — know how to have a good time. “We have dance parties almost every night with both of them,” Milano says.

While the tots may be young, their taste in dance music is very grown-up. “Honestly, I’m embarrassed to say my daughter’s favorite track to dance to is ‘Big Booty’ by [Jennifer Lopez],” she admits. “She’s obsessed with that song.”

However, Milo’s favorite track to turn up is a classic. “My son is really in to ‘We Will Rock You’ by Queen,” shares Milano.

Aside from dance parties, another activity Milano’s kids love is reading — especially her daughter, whose favorite book is Mommy Hugs by Karen Katz, which Milano calls, “the cutest book ever.”

Elizabella’s desire to read is a huge help for a busy mom like Milano. “You can put her on the floor with four or five books and she will keep herself occupied for 45 minutes,” the mom of two explains. “It doesn’t matter what books they are, she just loves to look at the pictures and she opens it up.”

This is what my happiness looks like.

As to whether Milano and Bugliari will expand their family in the future, Milano “thinks” she’s done.

“I want another one, but I’m 42 so it’s like, why push my luck? I have two healthy children and I had them both later in my life,” she says.

Although she’s ruling out having any more children, there could still be one more child on the way for her clan. “Maybe I adopt in six years,” she muses.

What a gorgeous little girl!

Just a Duck on

Good hopefully we won’t have to see her boobs anymore or hear about her breastfeeding woes.

Elizabella is so cute, I can’t get enough of her

Alyssa is such a good mom, and I love her breastfeeding pictures. That’s an amazing interview, I really like Alyssa, and her kids are adorable. Too bad she won’t have more children cause she makes cute babies. but she has a point, she’s lucky to have 2 healthy children, and with older mothers there’s a bigger chance of the child not be healthy, so I totally understand her

They are a beautiful family.

I hate when people flippantly say they’ll adopt, like they’re assuming adoption is so easy and no big deal.

charlotte on

Beautiful, happy family. I wish her all the best.

But chic paper towels???? Really….. Does anyone really and truly care what their paper towels look like?

I think they did a little photo shopping to that picture. Her right arm doesn’t look like the left – it is bigger and looks like a mans. She looks great – I just think someone goofed with that arm/hand.

GOOD! Maybe we won’t have to see any more pictures of her boobs. Her little boy is cute, though!

Kristen on

What a proud mama! That baby girl is so cute and cuddly. Lovely family

Anonymous, I totally agree. I became a mom through adoption and it was like a hit in the gut when I read her flippant comment about adopting.

Emily on

Saying “Maybe I’ll adopt” is now flippant and offensive? Oooookay.

Anonymous on

Rose- I love them, too. I don’t get what people find so offensive about a mother feeding her child!

blodie69- I think it’s just the angle that’s making it look that way. I seriously doubt a professional agency like Getty would alter their images (apart from adjusting lighting and such, I mean).

Emily- I know, right?! And she didn’t even say she would for sure adopt. As you pointed out, she said “MAYBE” she’ll adopt.

Very nice picture.

What’s always amazed me about this woman is that she’ll color her hair, fix and brighten her teeth, etc…but she never does anything about those hairy gorilla forearms!!

I appreciate anyone that thinks about not bringing more children in the world when you already have two healthy ones. I always believe the more children you have it takes away from the ones you already have. Don’t let anyone fool you it does! Looks like a great family and I wish her all the best!

Jeez, she’s done so much work to that second picture she almost looks younger than her son. LOL! Seriously, not a wrinkle in sight and her husband looks like a normal person, wrinkles and all.

Ologius on

She looks really good for 42, I was thinking bout she was mid 30’s.

Yolander on

She looks very young at her age and healthy.
