Hilary Duff is loving motherhood! The singer opened up to People about son Luca's milestones, and there is one in particular that got her pretty excited.

“You know what was a big milestone? The belly button falling off," Duff, 24, tells the magazine. "That was a huge one. And then I wanted to keep it but my husband was like, ‘No, that’s gross, you can’t keep it!’ I’m like, ‘I’m totally keeping it,’ and I secretly kept it.”

So where did she hide it?

Duff laughed: “It’s in a Ziploc bag in the back of my makeup drawer. Luca’s going to think I’m a freak!”

Luca Cruz Comrie is only about four weeks old, and while Hilary is definitely a hands-on mom the Lizzie McGuire actress says her husband helps a lot during the day when she does Pilates or spin class.

What do you think of Hilary's belly button revelation-- adorable, or too much?

    That's disgusting, a little obsessive, and weird, but then again, I don't have kids so I guess I don't get it. ......No, there's no way that isn't gross and weird, actually.
