90s TV queen Alyssa Milano has barely aged a day since the conclusion of her star-making series Charmed.

The 51-year-old became a household name after playing Phoebe Halliwell in the fantasy drama about a trio of sisters who are witches and use their powers to protect innocent lives from evil.

Despite the beloved show ending more than two decades ago in 2006, Alyssa looked like no time had passed at all in an Instagram picture with her husband David Bugliari, 43, and their two children Milo, 12, and Elizabella, nine.

In the snap, the family are on a holiday to Ireland, with the country’s ragged coastline in the background. Alyssa captioned the post: ‘Ireland 2024’.

Her 3.7M followers flooded the comments sections with well-wishes, including Instagram account @charmedbabyy, who wrote: ‘Love you Alyssa!!!! Enjoy your vacation!’

Remarking on Alyssa’s youthfulness, @zainabalharba commented: ‘As u grow u become more beautiful.’

Echoring their sentiment, @robison.kenny added: ‘Absolute dynamite.’

@rachelnoonan1234 said: ‘Beautiful photo of All of you, ❤️ Welcome To Ireland 🇮🇪 Hope You Enjoy your Holiday 😍❤️.’

The family picture comes after Alyssa caused a social media storm when she shared a GoFundMe link for her son’s baseball team Birds 12U squad, hoping to raise their goal of $10,000 (£7,886).

Many at the time questioned why the actress – who is thought to be a multimillionaire – had asked members of the public, branding her request ‘shameless’.

Others, though, came to her defense, slamming those who had been so rude with their responses.

An Instagram fan fumed: ‘This comment section is full of a bunch of dummies! It was a fundraiser!’

However, despite the backlash, Alyssa’s fans did appear to donate to the cause including one who sarcastically gave (£3.94) under the name ‘DoesntAlyssa HaveEnoughMoney.’

She also later addressed the drama in a statement on X, writing: ‘I’ve paid for uniforms for the entire team and coaches, thrown bday parties and sponsor any kid who can’t afford monthly dues. The kids also do fundraising themselves – car washes, movie nights, and many other fun things!

‘Thank you to all who have contributed to the gofundme! You’ve made things easier for these boys and their families.’

Charmed, which also starred Shannen Doherty and Holly Marie Combs as Alyssa’s character Phoebe’s witch sisters Prue and Piper respectively, ran for more than a decade from 1998 until 2006.

It was later rebooted by the US network The CW in 2018 with a new cast and it aired for four seasons until 2022.

Prior to Charmed, Alyssa had a regular role in hit soap Melrose Place and then went on to star in shows including My Name Is Earl and Mistresses.

Her most recent TV credit was three episodes of comedy The Now in 2021 and she has starred in films including Who Are You People.

Alyssa married talent agent David while he was working at Hollywood firm Creative Artists Agency. He then started his own company Range Media Partners in 2020.
