New mom Danica McKellar recently took to Facebook to share a tip about what she jokes may become “the next diet rage.” The 35-year-old actress/mathematician, who welcomed baby boy Draco on September 7, writes:
Breastfeeding: The bikini diet? Makes your breasts grow while literally pumping calories out of your body, and all while you’re sitting on the couch. They say with a few weeks’ patience and a breast pump, any woman can lactate, even without a baby. It could very well be the delirium of sleep deprivation talking, but could this be the next diet rage?
Who knows? Hollywood has certainly seen stranger dieting trends than this!
Before the birth of her son, the former The Wonder Years star chatted with Celebrity Baby Scoop about a few of her parenting aspirations: “I plan to breastfeed for at least a year. Mike and I plan to do lots of ‘babywearing’ in wraps/slings, and of course give the baby tons of love. The rest will work itself out.”
Draco is the first child for Danica and her husband, composer Mike Verta, who were married March 22, 2009.
