Alyssa Milano named her son after his grandfathers.

The 'Charmed' actress and her husband, Hollywood agent David Bugliari, welcomed their first child into the world earlier this week and Alyssa has revealed the inspiration for his moniker, Milo Thomas, came from his family.

She wrote on her twitter page: "For all of you asking, "Milo" was named after his two Grandfathers, Miller and Thomas. Two very important men in my life. (sic)"

Since giving birth to Milo on Wednesday (31.08.11), the 38-year-old star has been getting used to motherhood and is enjoying every minute of it - even the dirty diapers.

She revealed in another tweet: "Breast feeding. Poop. And bliss. I love being Milo's mother."

Alyssa - who also starred in 'My Name Is Earl' and 'Melrose Place' - and David just can't get enough of their baby.

She tweeted earlier in the week: "Thank you for all the well wishes for my son Milo. My heart has tripled in size. I love him more than all the leaves on all the trees."
