Jessica Alba Covers 'Latina' August 2011

Jessica Alba Covers 'Latina' August 2011

Jessica Alba shows off her baby bump in a Dolce&Gabbana dress on the cover of Latina magazine’s August 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (July 12).

Here’s what the 30-year-old Spy Kids 4 actress had to share in the mag’s first ever family issue:

On preparing for her second child: “The first time around, every moment was so new and terrifying and now I know what to expect. It’s like ‘It’s fine, I’ve been there before.’ With Honor, I was constantly asking myself ‘Is she moving? Is her heart beating?’ I’d worry about everything, and with this baby I don’t have the same anxieties.”

On balancing motherhood & her career: “After I had Honor I didn’t leave the house for a while. It was all about changing diapers and feedings and still trying to get back in to the routine of my [acting] thing. I love what I do. But unless it’s worth it, I’m not going to spend time away from my daughter. Before I had her, work was all I had. Now it’s not.”

On the possibility of more kids: “I just have to feel it out. See how my 30s treat me. I just try to live in the moment.”

    didnt she once say not to call her latina?


    she sounds like a great mother with her head on right! hopefully the rest of her pregnancy is smooth and a healthy baby is born!

  • miapocca

    Is it surprising that she never mentions her husband?
    She said before she had her daughter work was all she had …wow…

  • 90210

    She hates being called Latina.

  • mailey

    huh? what ‘work’ was she so busy with prior to her pregnancy?
    her career posing for maxim and fhm covers?
    she’s overstating just a touch here.

  • Ana

    Why is she on the cover of Latina if she herself said she doesn’t consider herself one, and basically insulted Mexicans. What a hypocrite!!!

  • lexy hates bilson

    She’s such a natural beauty!

  • Oh, the irony..

    I had a friend who went to highschool with her. She did not want anything to do with the Latina girls, and mainly stuck with the white chicks.

  • Marie

    @Futura: no comprehendo. she doesn’t speak spanish

  • Eva

    She’s such a liar…she said she didn’t leave the house for awhile after having Honor–well, there are pics of her out and about after she had her (ok maybe a week)…but still!

  • Yo-Landi

    @Oh, the irony..: Well, she has the head of the kind of girls who would stick with white chicks only because latinas wouldn’t be pretty or “high status” enough. It’s written all over her face. I am actually surprised that she chose a mixed guy to be her husband, I thought she’d end up getting knocked up by a guy like Michael Weatherly (whatever his name is, her costar in Dark Angel). That said, Jessica is one effing gorgeous woman. Beautiful dress.

  • miapocca

    Latina Asian whatever…she wanted to be a mother, Cash Warren knocked her up, so she now has t accept her ethnicity, at least cash warren is nice guy who accepts her crap..but the end is near!

  • Lyra Nommo

    she ruined her body by getting pregnant.

  • suckit

    GEE, WHATEVER HAPPENED TO “I’M NOT LATINA”? We don’t want you, Jessica. We have other gorgeous Latinas celebrities who are proud to be themselves. YOU PHONEY!

  • vale

    Rapid actress

  • Lisa

    she looks gorgeous! thanks for posting

  • sparkly sequins

    I’m sure a lot of the mothers would rather be with their children rather than spending time away at a menial, “unworthy” job if the choice be given .
    Maybe the purpose of the quoted interview response was to cast Jessica Alba in a new light, a deeper woman with reorganized priority. But sometimes these magazine snippets just don’t work out as intended.

  • Vanessa

    Why is she on the cover of Latina? She doesnt even consider herself one…
