Life seems to be in full blossom for the hottest mom in Hollywood, Jessica Alba, as with a new baby joining her family and a new role ahead in 2012, the beautiful diva literally shines with happiness in the latest photoshoot for InStyle Australia January 2012. In the interview with the magazine, Jessica talks about motherhood, pregnancy, fashion, lifestyle and more. Take a look at some highlights from Jessica Alba’s interview with InStyle Australia January 2012 below!
As a mother of two, baby Haven Garner and Honor Marie, Jessica Alba has put her energy into a new project, which is an eco-friendly label. She tells InStyle about the products that are set to be launched this month that: “It’s an eco-household-and-baby consumer product line. Our core item will be diapers but we also have household cleaning products and bodycare products.“
She also adds that the line will be ‘accessible and affordable’: “If something is healthy and non-toxic, it is usually at a premium price point. We aren’t going to be the cheapest, but certainly not the most expensive.”
Talking about motherhood, Jessica Alba isn’t shy to share her experience and she states that being a mother definitely changed her. She tells InStyle that: “That I felt completely different. I really came into myself as a person. Before, I was always working for my identity. And then you take the focus off of yourself. I was probably—definitely—a bit of a narcissist. When you are young and an actor and driven, it’s a bizarre state of mind to be in at times. I was so focused on things that didn’t matter at the end of the day. Now I have what I do for a living in perspective. Working was everything to me, my entire identity, and once I got to step away from it, everything changed.”
Although Jessica loves to be a mom, she admits that things sometimes can get overwhelming, for which she turned to a babysitter for help. She tells that magazine that she turned towards her sister-in-law for help, which she considered to be like her little sister and an aunt to the girls. Jessica says: “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. I do try to do way too much.”
Jessica, who gained about 60 pounds with her first child, Honor, reveals that she learned a lot from her first pregnancy and she opted for much healthier food while pregnant with the second child, Haven. This helped her feel more comfortable in her own skin after giving birth. No wonder, Jessica looks incredible now and her post baby body is envied by women from all over the world.
Jessica Alba’s impeccable fashion style has been praised a lot, and it seems her favorite red carpet staples bring up the names of some world-famous, renowned designers. Ralph Lauren, Prada and Diane von Furstenberg are the names that help Jessica’s classic style while for her more edgy vibe she turns towards Proenza, Lanvin, Versace or Dolce & Gabbana.
