Jessica Alba, the 27 year-old newlywed, recently opened up about her ethnic background, relationship with babydaddy, 29 year-old Cash Warren, her upcoming new baby, and more.
On her recent move into a $4 million Beverly Hills home: “It’s a lot of stress to buy a house, have a baby and get married in six months. It’s a lot of life-changing decisions. I’m really, really secure and happy in my relationship.”
On her spiritual beliefs: “I grew up in a Catholic home and then I went into a more Eastern approach on my own. I think there’s something to be said for herbs and meditation and things like that.
On any monetary offers for pictures of her newborn baby: “I haven’t really gotten any — not that I’m aware of. You have to understand, everything that is written is kind of bull …”
On any chandeliers in the nursery like Jennifer Lopez did for her twins? “Actually, I do. I got a really beautiful one.”
On her breastfeeding plans: “Yeah, I’m definitely going to try to do everything to give the baby as much nourishment as possible.”
Find out what she meant when she said she wanted a “brown” baby.
On her criticism for disrespecting her Hispanic heritage. What does she check on a census? “I always check white and Hispanic.”
On her recent quote saying she hopes her baby will be “brown”: “I mean my dad is dark-skinned [Mexican], Cash’s daddy is dark-skinned [African-American], and our moms are both white. So there’s a 50-50 chance of our kid coming out dark or light. It would be nice if the daddies can see themselves in our baby.”
On the national obsession to see color in people: “I think my generation is the last generation that sees color. In this next generation coming up, everybody is mixed. And I think with people like Jennifer Lopez and Halle Berry being out there opening movies and having clothing lines and pushing the idea of ideal beauty, [the ideal isn't] Christie Brinkley anymore. You don’t have to look like Barbie.”
