The brunette beauty from "Who's the Boss?" became a household name in the 1980s— she is still a reigning actress. Peeking into her private life shows that she is happily married to her younger husband, David Bugliari. Here is all we know about Alyssa Milano's husband.
Alyssa Milano's successful career did not stop her from having a happy family with her husband of more than a decade, David Bugliari. The couple is parents to two adorable kids.
While David earned his celebrity status due to his wife's popularity, he also has a background in the entertainment industry, where he has worked as a talent agent for many years.

David had been involved in a few movies' success, even though he never appeared in front of the camera. The talent agent has earned thanks. These onscreen productions include "Jim Jefferies Alcoholocaust," "How to Live Forever," "Dreamland," and the latest, 2020's "Promising Young Woman."
WHO IS DAVID BUGLIARI?
41-year-old David Bugliari, born on December 17, 1980, spent his early years growing up with his parents and two siblings in New Jersey, where he developed a background in football.
His dad was a head coach for a school's team in Martinsville—the same school David attended and played as the team's captain. Despite his love for sports, he also found showbusiness intriguing, and as a young adult, he began working in the entertainment industry, away from the camera.

To this day, David holds his job as a talent agent. Additionally, the 41-year-old serves as the co-head of Motion Pictures for the Creative Artists Agency in L.A. In 2018, his net worth was estimated at $ 2 million.
He is also close to famous stars like Bradley Cooper, who was one of the couple's wedding guests in 2009. Besides exhibiting enthusiasm for his career and building relationships with reputable celebrities, David is a doting husband who consistently declares his support for his older wife through social media.

DAVID BUGLIARI AND ALYSSA MILANO'S RELATIONSHIP
The couple met in 2006, and even though it was not love at first sight, Milano calls it "a lovely gift." She became interested in the talent manager after they worked together—David worked for the agency that represented the actress. Eventually, their friendship progressed into a beautiful love story.
But this was after Milano sought advice from her friend and co-star, Milo Ventimiglia. Although Ventimiglia had a crush on the movie star growing up, they became friends following their time as colleagues in "Pathology." The "Who's the Boss" star credited Ventimiglia for her romance with David. She said:
"I used to confide in Milo Ventimiglia and say, 'Is that weird if I date an agent that's at my agency?' and he was very, like, 'No, if you're compatible, you should go for it."
They dated for about a year before David went down on one knee, asking his heartthrob one of the most important questions of her life. It was not the first time she had agreed to be someone's wife. It is her second marriage; she married Tate, from the rock band Remy Zero, in 1999. That same year they split.
David's proposal turned out to be perfect! He gave his then-fiancee a self-designed ring, made by Jim Lavi at Daniel Jewelry in La Jolla, Calif., and she said yes!
In August 2009, the couple had their dream wedding at David's family estate in New Jersey. It was a romantic garden wedding, nature-themed and family-oriented.

The woman of the day looked strikingly beautiful as she dressed in a Vera Wang-designed dress and adorned her hair with a headpiece from Maria Elena while clutching a radiant bouquet of valley lilies.
The ambiance— heavily decorated with petals- preached tranquility and nature; according to Milano, it was on purpose. As they wanted "a wedding that was reflective of who we are as a couple."
Food was served in a family way, as guests were made to sit in a tent with wooden tables, flooring, and metal chandeliers.
DAVID BUGLIARI'S FAMILY WITH ALYSSA MILANO
In more than one way, Milano has revealed that she shares the perfect love story with her husband. Through her "Sorry Not Sorry" memoir, the actress shared how they have made their romance seamless, even through the rough times.
One way is by being apologetic and supportive of one another, and somehow this has been embedded in their DNA, thanks to being in love.
Milano confessed that during the early stage of their relationship, she suffered a miscarriage. It was traumatic, as she was already 38.

The author felt pangs of guilt mixed with pain (she thought it was a punishment for her past abortions). Still, despite her previous decisions and the tragedy that occurred, David remained loving. According to her:
"As we sat in the parking lot of the medical building after that appointment sobbing and holding each other, he grabbed my face, looked into my eyes, and said, 'It's okay. We're going to have another baby. A better baby."

Fortunately, in 2011, they welcomed their son, Milo Thomas. He was born on August 31, weighing 7 pounds. The couple chose Milo in honor of a close friend, Ventimiglia, who was somehow responsible for their relationship. While explaining her choice, she said:
"When Milo was born, he just looked like a Milo to me and I thought it would be a lovely homage to Milo Ventimiglia for encouraging me to find my love."
In 2014, the "Who's the Boss?" star became a girl's mom. Her youngest child, Elizabeth Dylan Bugliari, was born, weighing 7 lbs., 7 oz., and a length of 19.5 inches.
Since becoming a mom, Milano has been conscious of the lessons she teaches her kids. The politically active actress is already influencing her offspring with political activism.
But that is not the only lesson she teaches them. The "Charmed" star is far from a boring mom, as she spends quality time with her young ones enjoying Disney trips and attending baseball games, which the kids love.
This bonding time has allowed her to study her children's personalities. The mother-of-two described Milo as "strong and organized," while Elizabeth is "very empathetic and caring."

As far as increasing their family's size, Milano admitted that she is not ready to have a third child. However, she did not rule out that there could be an addition in six years. Milano added:
"I want another one, but I'm 42 so it's like, why push my luck? I have two healthy children and I had them both later in my life."

HOW ALYSSA MILANO AND DAVID BUGLIARI KEEP THEIR ROMANCE ALIVE
While David supports his wife, the "Sorry Not Sorry" author is always willing to stick with her husband. But this does not mean they will cope with a boring marriage; instead, the couple is intentional about maintaining a steamy romance.
To achieve this, Alyssa Milano explained that it has involved working unrelentingly. For her, this is the only formula to a happy marriage. Irrespective of busy schedules, including career and parenting, the couple make time for each other.
