Jessica Alba Covers 'Parenting'

Jessica Alba Covers 'Parenting'

Jessica Alba and her girls, Honor and Haven, take the cover of Parenting magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 30-year-old actress and proud mama had to share:

On explaining the press to her kids: “When the paparazzi follow us, and [Honor] asks me what they’re doing, I tell her, ‘They’re just taking pictures, isn’t that silly?’ I don’t want her to have anxiety, so I tell her they do that to everyone, not just our family.”

On what inspired her to launch natural products on “Once I had bought brown diapers, telling myself, ‘You know what, they’re not cute, but they’re all-natural.’ I was resigned to the fact that anything healthy wasn’t going to be attractive.”

On what matters most: “Before I had kids, I was always so focused on my career…Nothing else really matters to me [now] aside from my children and their well-being.”

FYI: Haven is wearing 77kids by American Eagle.

    such a good looking actress and none of her daughters inherited any of that beauty


    Does she ever stop pimping out her kids….her acting career must be dead

  • Sofia

    Jessica is a beautiful Danish woman and a great mother right up there with the queen of all celebrity mothers Jennifer Affleck. Red haired Haven looks like her Danish grandmother.

  • shez

    Christ why is this woman bloody everywhere these days? What does she actually do?

    “well children, the reason the paps follow us is because I call them, it’s the only way I can stay in the limelight because I have no acting talents.”

  • Great Role Model

    Jessica is a well grounded young mother. She has a thriving career in movies and now she is a business woman building a company that is in high demand and eco friendly. It would be wonderful if Honor and Haven took over the reigns of The Honest Company when they grow up.

  • No Nannies

    Jessica Alba and Jennifer Garner are two of the best!!

  • Erica

    @Sofia: Actually, Jessica is part Danish but it looks as though the Danish genes skipped over her and landed on Haven with the palse complexion and red hair.

  • anon

    @Sofia: Jessica isn’t Danish – she is an American with some Danish ancestry. ;)

  • KyelJordan

    Exactly, her father is Mexican

  • fake

    She is Mexican any drop of mexican blood does not make her white..she also looks very mejicana..!!! Jennifer Garner is her idol, they both do shiteous movies…they both cannot act…an they both parade their children to the paparazzi on a daily basis. They see that it gives them good publicity. The woman salivates over Jennifer Garner so that she named her new baby with the middle name of garner, roflmao. They have good publicists since they make bad movies the publicists tell them go out there and show case their kids so they will be seen as the best mothers in hollywood. That is what keeps them in the news…oh what good mother’s they are not!!!!

    Poor Jessica -pimping her kids.

  • Amy

    Honor is still ugly even with photoshop. She is so ugly that not even makeup, airbrushing, and photoshop can save her ugliness.

  • Jessie

    I like Jessica, but she shouldn’t lie to her daughter telling her paps follow every family around. That’s just weird.

  • Sammy

    Wow, not even photoshop can make Honor cute. Thats a shame. Haven is adorable though! =)

  • Ivana

    To be honest, I’d rather watch her on a daily basis all natural with her adorable children then Kim Kardashian.

  • Piper

    it’s easy to give up on your career and focus on children if you had no career to begin with. she’s seriously telling me that if Clint Eastwood calls she would not pick up the phone? spare me.

    keep your delusions to your self, Jessica Alba.

  • Marisa

    Eh so her daughter thinks the paparazzi follow everyone around and not just her? That kind of places her daughter in a bubble, don’t you think? If she thinks everyone gets the same kind of star treatment and attention, sounds a little unhealthy for a kid to have that mentality….

    She looks Danish to me and one drop of Mexican blood does not make her Mexican either.

  • Ashley

    Jessica is pretty and Honor looks just like her… and Haven is adorable!

  • Marina

    Jessica Alba was tested for ethnicity in the George Lopez Show. She was 85% European and 25% Native American. She is beautiful. Mixed race people are the most beautiful. Look at Halle Berry, and Johnny Depp.

  • ABC

    Yep, Jessica is European like her mom I always thought so and she is very proud of her Danish ancestry.

  • Tina

    I like how she named Haven Garner after her friend Jennifer Garner who si also one of the best celebrity moms in Hollywood.

  • fake

    @Tina: Oh please who does that…it is delusional to call her child Garner lmao.

  • http://missmaevadu27 louloute452

    rien a voir Garner et le middle name de Cash , she girls is beautifull,

  • Rocky

    What a lovely cover. Mommy and her girls. Too cute.

  • retrobanana

    lol i have really liked her much more since she had her kids i have become one of her fans i love her style and she is one of my style icons and of course i think she is beautiful

    however i never ever thought she could act ever and when i read that because of her having kids she no longer put her career first i had to laugh…what career? being a mom obviously was what she was made for…

  • Jessica Pimping the Babies

    As usual. Pathetic excuse for a mother

  • JO

    Love jessica she still sexy!

  • Sandy

    Me and my hubby are like Jessica…two tan latinos that had a little white baby. My parents are both part European and his father is full European. So funny.

  • Sandy

    Seeing her with her husband (both ethnic looking) and their baby makes me feel so much better. Thank you!

  • Christiana

    Jessica is part Danish but it looks as though the Danish genes skipped over her and landed on Haven with the palse complexion and red hair.
