She may make it look easy, but Valentine’s Day star Jessica Alba faces the same struggle that many working moms today face, the search for the perfect balance between work and family. Alba sat down with Terra TV to dish on how she manages to find balance between her thriving career and motherhood, as well what she really thinks about Valentine’s Day and romance.
On finding balance between work and family, Alba says, “It’s a tough balance trying to be the best mom, and obviously my family is my priority, and then also I love what I do and I love that I get to have a job that I enjoy so much and that gives me the freedom to spend a lot of time with my daughter, frankly, and travel. And everything else.” Alba also says of daughter Honor who will be two in June, “It’s hard not to spend every second with her. And balancing that with trying to be a great wife.”
Jessica also dishes on romance, saying, “I think making an effort, whether it’s through chocolates and flowers, or writing an nice card, or taking you on a date. You know, I think any gesture is nice.”
You can catch Jessica in Valentine’s Day, along with an all-star ensemble cast including fellow celeb mamas Jennifer Garner, Julia Roberts and dad-to-be Eric Dane, in theaters now.
