Alyssa Milano turned up for last night's Hall Pass premiere packing a few extra pregnancy pounds. But the actress insists she's craving something healthier than ice cream and pickles.

"Broccoli," she told us. "[But] I can't even consider that a craving because it's so odd. I can't get enough broccoli!"

What else did the former Who's the Boss? child star have to say about becoming a first-time mama?

"As soon as I got pregnant I just didn't want to leave my mother's side," Milano 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."

Milano, 38 and her talent agent hubby David Bulgiari, 32, announced earlier this week that they were expecting their first child.

The actress tells us they will find out the sex of the baby. And no, they're not going to be pulling the big celebrity privacy card about it. "Who cares?" she said with a big smile. "Why would you keep that a secret?"

Keeping the early stage of the pregnancy was another matter. "I'll tell you I was very happy to be out of my first trimester," Milano said. "I think that's the scariest time because you always have it in the back of your head that you could miscarriage at any point. So I would say that was my scariest time.

"Now that I'm out of that, I'm like, 'Woohoo!' "
