Early life[]

Milano is the daughter of fashion designer and talent manager Lin and film-music editor Thomas M. Milano.[1] She is of Italian ancestry.[2] She was born in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn and lived there until a neighborhood shooting prompted the family to relocate to Staten Island.[3] Her younger brother Cory (b. 1982) is also an actor. In a 2003 interview, Milano recalled having had a good childhood, having grown up in a "loving, true family."[4] She did not feel that growing up in front of the camera jeopardized her childhood:[5] "I love my family very much—they've really backed my career. I consider myself to be normal: I've got to clean my room, and help in the kitchen."[6]

Personal Life[]

Milano married Cinjun Tate, guitarist and singer of the band Remy Zero, in January 1999, but they divorced in November after 10 months of marriage.[7][8]. After one year of dating, Milano became engaged to Creative Artists Agency agent David Bugliari in December 2008,[9] and they married on August 15, 2009 at Bugliari's family home in New Jersey.[10] They have two children: son Milo Thomas (born 2011)[11] and daughter Elizabella Dylan (born 2014).[12]
