Hilary Duff is so enamored by her new role as mom, she keeps her newborn son’s belly button sealed in a Ziploc bag in her makeup drawer.

“Luca’s going to think I’m a freak!” the actress tells about her baby’s future reaction to the confiscation.

Duff, who is also a new spokesperson for Johnson’s Baby Cares initiative, said the belly button falling off was a “big milestone” for her as a parent, hence she felt the need to reserve time in the plastic bag hidden in her vanity. “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.”

Hilary Duff reveals an infatuation with her son's fallen belly button-

This made me giggle!

A friend of mine just told me she had kept both of her daughters. I personally threw them away because I thought they were disgusting LOL

Nope didn't keep any of my children's umbilical cord stubs but I did keep the plastic clips. For Adam I still have the little ring from his circumsicion though I am contemplating on just throwing it away. We'll see. My mom told me I should keep it as she kept the ones for my brothers.
