For Jessica Alba, pregnancy is much easier the second time around. Easier on the body and the mind!
“Every moment was so new and kind of terrifying and now I know what to expect,” Alba tells Latina in the latest issue of the magazine. “It’s like, ‘It’s fine, I’ve been there before.’ With Honor, I was constantly like, ‘Is she moving? Is her heart beating?’ I’d worry about everything and with this baby, I don’t have the same anxieties.”
While she’s gotten rid of her insecurities, the Spy Kids 4 star reveals one thing that’s stayed the same – her craving for fruit.
Sometimes you can’t get a food out of your mind,” says Alba. “I could always eat watermelon. With Honor, I loved fruit, too. It’s a decent craving. You still eat cheeseburgers and pickles – you just want watermelon really bad. I don’t deprive myself of anything. I eat whatever.”
And to work off all of those cheeseburgers, Jessica does her best to stay active, telling the magazine, “I’d like to still do something five days a week, from a half hour to an hour – nothing excessive, just some moving [around]. It makes the whole pregnancy so much easier. The more fit you are, the easier the birth is, and a healthier baby you’re going to have.”
