Alyssa Milano loves her first pregnancy so much that she's already got more babies on the brain.

And from the sound of it, she's thinking a lot babies.

Read on to find out what the mommy-to-be just told me about adding to the brood sooner than later, picking out baby names and the unexpected parenting advice she got from a certain celebrity dad at the unlikeliest of places…

"I've had such a great time being pregnant that you're probably going to see me more pregnant than not in the next few years because I'm really digging it," Milano told me earlier this week at Unicef's Playlist with the A-List benefit at L.A.'s El Rey Theater.

Milano is six months pregnant with her and husband Dave Bugliari's first baby, a baby boy to be exact. "We have five names picked out because we aren't going to name him until we see him," she said.

"We hear so many nightmare stories about people that have that name set and then they see the baby! Someone told me this story the other day about that they had like a new sort of name picked out like Skylar and then he came out and he was like 10 1/2 pounds and he looked like a little bruiser and they were like, ‘We can't name our kid Skylar. He's more like a Ben or a Charlie.' "

Milano plans to return to work, she just doesn't know when. She laughed because she received some great advice the other day while talking to Heavy D at a Sean "Diddy" Combs concert.

"I want to really enjoy my child," she said. "Everyone keeps telling me how fast it goes by and to spend as much time with them as possible. And here was Heavy D, you know this big strong guy, talking about how fast his daughter's childhood went by," Milano continued. "He was like, ‘In a blink of the eye so take as much time as you need.'"

And as much broccoli as you need while preggers. Shortly after announcing in February that she was expecting, Milano told us she couldn't stop craving the green vegetable. "Yup, I still have that one," she smiled. "I've been eating a lot of sautéed broccoli with garlic and broccoli. I wish I had new cravings that were exciting."
