Alyssa Milano steps on the cover of Fit Pregnancy‘s August issue looking fabulous while pregnant. The actress is pregnant with her second child, saying “it is such a cool thing to experience.”
While some stars find it easy to be pregnant in the public eye, Alyssa is one of them that finds it to be difficult.
“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 afterward. And for my body, that meant putting on a lot of weight.”
Of course, being pregnant means eating more, but Alyssa chooses to go the healthy way and not indulge in junk food.
“I didn’t indulge in fast food or junk food, so I knew it was a healthy weight. I just realized: This is what my body needs to do to have a healthy baby.”
“We don’t get hungry when we’re pregnant for no reason. You’re making a skeletal system. You’re making organs. I refuse to look at the scale. I didn’t look at the scale with Milo until the day I gave birth. It’s funny, my file was open at my appointment yesterday and there was a big Post-it note that said, ‘She does not want to know her weight.'”
