Growing and glowing! Jessica Alba showed off her baby bump while out and about in West Hollywood with her daughters Haven and Honor on Saturday September 30, 2017.
Pregnant with her third child, the actress kept in comfy in a black tee and slouch pants as she grabbed a treat with her girls.
The co-founder of The Honest Company, she recently spoke to Today.com about the pressures of being the perfect parent.
“You always feel compromised and like you’re pulled in too many directions,” the 36-year-old told Today. “It’s a balance that I have yet to see perfectly achieved.”
“What really stresses me out the most is thinking about bedtime. My kids like me to sing four songs each to them at night and after a long day of work, all I want to do is eat and decompress. I love the cuddle time, but at the same time, I feel so drained. It’s like there is no me time. So, I am like OK, which kid do I choose first? Is there going to be a fight? But it is the only quiet time we get with them to talk about their day and they open up in a different way when they are laying down. It’s hard.”
She knows she’s not perfect and doesn’t want to be.
“It’s being OK with that and letting go of perfection and investing more in the quality of time that you spend, either at home with your family or at work or with your friends,” Alba noted. ”It’s making sure that is quality versus quantity because you don’t have quantity.”
Her biggest piece of advice? Practice self-care.
“Any mom who all of the sudden has little people that rely heavily on them for survival needs to maintain her own sense of self,” said Alba. “You need to cut yourself some slack and bite off what you can chew. Things will be compromised and you just have to be okay with that.”
