She posted on X, defending her efforts for the baseball team.
Her X post reads:
I’m getting media inquiries about whether I have financially contributed to my son’s baseball team. 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 team themselves also have fundraising efforts, shares the Charmed alum. She adds:
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.
According to Milano, while she'd gladly pay for the whole team and their families for travel, transportation, food, hotel, uniforms, and all the expenses included in the trip, she cannot afford it.
She hopes to do it someday, though. She actress also believes that even if she did fund the entire trip, her trolls would likely find other aspects to criticize.
Milano, amidst the backlash, showed people screenshots of what others have been sending her son. The actress expressed her dismay, stating that regardless of personal opinions, visiting her hardworking 12-year-old son's Instagram page and leaving such messages is truly upsetting.
She emphasized the importance of letting children enjoy their baseball activities without interference. For those who disagree with donating, she encouraged them not to, but for those willing to support the team's families, she expressed gratitude.
Milano once shared her thoughts about motherhood.
The heartache that you feel as a parent is like nothing you’ve ever — it’s like shattering your DNA. It’s like [a] debilitating heartbreak. And it can be about the oddest things. Just like watching my son’s jaw square out. I’m not kidding. Like, all of a sudden, I’m looking at his neck and it’s starting to get like [a] little boy and not a baby, and the hair on the back of it’s getting coarse, it’s just all very upsetting.
Milano also shared that she tries to instill a sense of social awareness and consciousness in her son and daughter, Elizabella.
