Like most parents, Alyssa Milano is proud of her child's achievements—but in her case, she has every reason to brag. The actress, who celebrated her 40th birthday in December with a '90s-themed party, told Us Weekly her son Milo "started talking at four months, he started crawling at five months, and he started walking at 12 months! He thinks he's 12 years old!"

The adorable 18-month-old may be joined by another baby genius soon: Milano and her husband David Bugliari are talking about expanding their family. "We're not actively trying, but we're not not trying, if that makes sense," said the actress at the Feb. 7 pre-Grammy Awards party at the Getty House in L.A.

Milano, who is returning to the small screen in ABC's upcoming midseason series Mistresses, also gushed about her son. "He's kind of got the best of both of us, I think," she mused. "I think he's a lot more of a showman than I was at that age. He likes to perform already. He loves animals, which he gets from me." (The family has five dogs, ten horses, and chickens.)

Given Milo's love of the spotlight, would Milano mind if he became an actor like Mommy? "Before I had a child I would have said, 'Absolutely not, he's not doing it.' But I've realized since having him that the most important thing as a parent is to cultivate and nurture who they innately are and to be supportive of who they are," she said. "So if he were to decide that he wanted to try that out, I think I would have to be supportive."
