Jessica Alba and daughters Honor and Haven


Jessica Alba has revealed to InStyle Australia that there were times when “I felt I would crack” after giving birth to her firstborn daughter, Honor Marie.

The Spy Kids starlet, who had her second child, Haven, last August adds that motherhood is a challenge. “It’s overwhelming. I don’t consider myself a lot of the time. I think a lot of mums do that, try to be everything to everyone all the time. I make mistakes.”


Happily, Jessica, who has been married to Cash Warren for four years, says that she’s been much more chilled the second time around. “I'm more relaxed. Every sneeze or runny nose or little bump on the head that would have freaked me out before… I am more easygoing with that sort of thing. And the sense of knowing that I can get Haven to stop crying.”

We have to hand it to Jess, not only does she seem the perfect hands-on mum, she also looks great doing it!
