Alyssa Milano’s officially joined the proud celebrity moms who breastfeed on social media club! The actress followed in the footsteps of Gisele Bundchen and Olivia Wilde by posting a black-and-white selfie on Instagram of her newborn daughter, Elizabella Dylan , breastfeeding, while she peacefully smiles for the snap.

Alyssa also shared a quote from iconic Czech author Milan Kundera letting us know how much she loves breastfeeding.

“Ah, the joy of suckling! She lovingly watched the fishlike motions of the toothless mouth and she imagined that with her milk there flowed into her little son her deepest thoughts, concepts, and dreams.” ~Milan Kundera

Alyssa and David Bugliari welcomed Elizabella, their second child, on Sept. 4. The former Charmed star has also since made the decision to leave her show Mistresses because she couldn’t relocate from Los Angeles to Vancouver, British Columbia, to film.

“I have two babies under 4,” she shared on her website. “Being a mother and wife comes first and I just cannot uproot my children and separate the family by moving away. I will miss this job desperately and wish everyone the absolute best.”
