Jessica Alba: “Life Moves So Fast As A New Mom”

Jessica Alba: “Life Moves So Fast As A New Mom”

With her daughter Honor’s first birthday behind her, Jessica Alba recently took some time to reflect on her new life as a mom.

The 28-year-old actress chatted with Fit Pregnancy magazine about the first year with her baby girl, saying, “Life moves so fast as a new mom. Sometimes I wish time would slow down.” I’m sure many parents out there know exactly what she means!

The Fantastic Four star admits that she underestimated just how hard it would be to keep up with both her career and her kid!

“It’s a lot more difficult to juggle motherhood and a career than I ever anticipated. So busy! And Honor is more mobile now than ever before and loves putting just about any foreign object in her mouth. I have to be a constant watchdog.”

Asked what advice she’d pass on to other first-time-moms, Jessica recommends trying to find the middle ground between trusting your instincts and learning from other moms who’ve been there, done that.

“What works for you may not work for others and vice versa. I have also found that it’s more useful to stop and listen than to try and always have the answers.”

Jessica and her color-coordinated cutie Honor are seen here leaving the Newsroom Café on Robertson Boulevard in LA today.

What’s your best tip for new moms?

    my best tip would be : GET SOME TIME FOR YOURSELF!
    lol, some people think it’s selfish, but it’s not at all! all new mommies need to get that time or they might do something that’s not like themselves!

    Jessica always looks so much more at ease with the paparazzi in NYC (the adorable pictures from last weekend where she and Honor were smiling at each other were taken in NY) – the ones in LA must be such jerks.

    Honor is becoming the cutest celeb baby around.

    I saw a vid on youtube of Jessica and the paparazzi and frankly I understand why she never smiles. They were pushy, were very close to her and made stupid remarks. Really I admire her for not throwing her shoes at them! Love hey style and her daughter is a cutie.
