​Mother-of-two Alyssa Milano ‘loves’ her stretch marks

Alyssa Milano has joined the chorus of celebrity moms who are getting real about their post-baby bodies. While guest-hosting The Talk this week, the mother of two proudly explained why she loves her new figure – stretch marks and all.

"I love my stretch marks. I have them on my boobs, my [bum] and on my belly," said Alyssa, prompting cheers from the audience.

“Some people might see them as imperfections, but when you have a baby, those are your beauty marks.”

Last September, the actress and her husband, Davdi Bugliari, welcomed a second child, daughter Elizabella Dylan. (She gave birth to son Milo Thomas in 2011.)

Since then, the actress has been focusing on being a good mother and role model to her children – and not on dropping the baby weight fast.

Nonetheless, the brunette beauty admits that being in the public eye can be a daunting experience for a mom coming to terms with her new curves.

"In my backyard I feel pretty good in my bikini," added Alyssa, 42. "I will say though – because of paparazzi – I probably would not wear a bikini on the beach for fear that the press would just eat it up and rip apart every part of my body.”

Alyssa has received a lot of support from fellow Hollywood moms in the past for speaking out against the pressure put on women to instantly shed their baby weight.

A female body is not made to look good in a bikini. It’s made to give birth and have a baby and be a cozy companion for it afterwards,” she’s said.
