One of the reasons why I love Alyssa Milano so much is because she tells it as it is. She doesn’t sugar coat motherhood nor does she pretend that she’s got an answer to everything. The Who’s The Boss cutie (yes, cutie, because she still looks so young, doesn’t she?!?!) recently admitted that at age 42 she doesn’t want to “push her luck” by getting pregnant with a third child. She already has two children, Milo, and Elizabella, with her husband David Bugliari.
In an interview with People Magazine, the Hollywood actress explained, “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. Maybe I adopt in six years.”
And while I know a lot of mothers who have their children later on in life, that doesn’t mean that a late pregnancy in life doesn’t come with its precautions. As much as we try to manipulate Mother Nature, you can’t change how your body works and the complex issues that could arise as a result of waiting. Of course, everyone deserves to be a mother and there are plenty of children born to mothers after the age of 40 that are completely healthy. But I totally understand why Alyssa says she wouldn’t want to take any chances.
What are your thoughts, Hot Moms? At what age did you give birth to your children?
