Former Mistresses star Alyssa Milano took to Instagram Tuesday to share an intimate moment between the new mother and her daughter Elizabella. Milano, 41, posted a black-and-white photo of herself breastfeeding the almost eight-week old baby.

Milano captioned the photo, "Ah, the joy of suckling! She lovingly watched the fishlike motions of the toothless mouth and she imagined that with her milk there flowed into her little son her deepest thoughts, concepts, and dreams." The quote is from Milan Kundera's Life Is Elsewhere.

Milano gave birth to Elizabella on Sept. 4 with husband David Bugliari. The couple also have a 3-year-old son named Milo.

Earlier this month, Milano announced that she would be leaving Mistresses because the show was relocating its production to Canada, and she wanted to stay in Los Angeles to be closer to her family.
