Melissa Joan Hart is the picture of domestic bliss.
Just weeks after giving birth to her third child with husband Mark Wilkerson, the Melissa & Joey star, 36, glowed as she gathered her growing brood together for a family photo.
The mother-of-three, along with Wilkerson and their sons Mason, 6, Brady, 4, and Tucker, 1 month, posed at their Westport, Conn., home on Oct. 3 for the Once Upon a Birth campaign, which raises awareness about maternal mortality. (For more information, please go to the Merck for Mothers Facebook page.)
It was the family's first official portrait since welcoming their newest bundle of joy, the 8-pound, 5-ounce Tucker, on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at 10 p.m.
The actress and her musician husband, 35, whom she wed in Italy in July 2003, certainly have their hands full with the three boys, but Hart -- herself the oldest of eight siblings -- couldn't be happier about all the men in her life.
"If I was to pinpoint one amazing moment in my life, it would be the moment when my boys met. Mason walked in, jumped on daddy's lap, and looked at Brady in my arms on the hospital bed," she told Us Weekly in August, shortly before Tucker's birth. "That was just such a special moment, and I'm looking forward to that again."
Brady and Mason are equally excited about their new little brother, she added. They doted on Tucker even before he was born.
"I can't leave or go anywhere -- even to bed! -- without them kissing the baby goodnight or saying, 'Good morning, baby,' or reading books to the baby," she said.
