Actor Alyssa Milano recently shared how she had delayed the birth of her daughter so that she could share a birthday with Beyoncé. 

In an interview with People Magazine's Me Becoming Mom podcast, the Charmed actor recalled her youngest child, Elizabella's birth.

The actor said that she was meant to have a planned C-section but went into labour around five weeks early. And since the birth was so close to midnight, she was given a choice to deliver on the 3rd or 4th of September.

The mom of two says she opted for the latter for a very cool reason. 

"My doctor, whom I love so much, said to me, 'I think we're gonna [sic] take her. The question is, are we gonna go — it was like 11:30 at night — or should we wait until after midnight? And [my best friend]... was like, 'Beyoncé's birthday is on the 4th! Wait until after midnight'. So we picked her birthday," Milano explained. 

Along with Elizabella, now aged seven, Alyssa also shares a ten-year-old son Milo with her husband, David Bugliari.
