2011 will be the year of green celebrity babies.

Alyssa Milano has joined other eco-conscious like Natalie Portman, Alicia Silverstone, Marion Cotillard, and Jessica Alba in announcing that she’s expecting later this year. “Yes, it’s true,” she tweeted yesterday. “And we couldn’t be happier. Thank you for your warm wishes and love!”

Late last year, Milano told Celebrity Baby Scoop that she and her husband, agent David Bugliari, were purchasing both a Nissan Leaf and a Chevy Volt in an effort to reduce their footprint — and become good role models for any future children.

“After the oil spill, I had this strong feeling that if I ever were to be blessed in having children, I never wanted my kids to see me pumping gas at a gas station,” she said. “I think it’s our responsibility to make the changes that we need to take regardless of convenience. I know it’s more inconvenient to have an electric car, but I’ll do what I have to do. I’m also a vegetarian. I have 5 dogs and 10 horses and about 90% of them are rescues.”

Congrats to the happy couple! Who’s next?!

    I absolutely adore Alyssa Milano. People like her deserve everything they want. After all she’s done for animals, people, and the environment, she deserves to have whatever makes her happy.
