Forget about pickles and ice cream, mommy-to-be Alyssa Milano has a healthy craving.

"Broccoli," the Who's the Boss star, 38, told E! News. "I can't even consider that a craving because it's so odd. I can't get enough broccoli!"

The babe will be the first for Milano and agent hubby David Bulgiari, 32, and the actress said she's been going back to the source for advice.

"As soon as I got pregnant I just didn't want to leave my mother's side," she said. "The amount of time I've spent with my parents since I've been pregnant -- I think it's because I want to soak up their brains."

While Milano, who announced her pregnancy earlier this week, said it was never her intention to keep the news a secret, she added she's happy to be through the first trimester.

"That's the scariest time because you always have it in the back of your head that you could miscarriage at any point," she said. "Now that I'm out of that, I'm like, 'Woohoo!'"
