essica Alba Gained Over Four Stone on First Pregnancy
Instyle Australia – actress Jessica Alba, mother of two, was recently interviewed by the Aussie magazine and shared her experience with motherhood. Alba says that in her first pregnancy with daughter Honor Marie she gained over four stone – 60 pounds.
Now, after two pregnancies and a body that is admired by all, one has to wonder how she managed the pregnancy weight. Alba says she learned that a healthy diet is crucial to maintaining proper weight during pregnancy.
That is something she didn’t appreciate when she was carrying baby Honor. Also, Alba realizes that there’s no room for narcissism in motherhood.
Prior to having children she admits she was very much caught up in herself but since then she balances the needs of her family with her career with family first. Alba has also enlisted the help of a relative, a sister-in-law’s sister, to help in babysitting because “it’s overwhelming… I make mistakes. I do try to do way too much.”
