Jessica Alba On Regaining Her Pre-Pregnancy Shape

Jessica Alba On Regaining Her Pre-Pregnancy Shape

Jessica Alba brought Honor and their nanny to her office in Santa Monica, Calif. on Thursday (January 12). The actress, who is working on her new business The Honest Company, took along some books to keep her little one busy.

She recently showed off her bikini body during her Mexican vacation. How did she slim down so fast after having Haven almost five months ago? People reports the actress was at the Forevermark and Instyle event on Tuesday when she revealed how she’s gotten to her super shape.

Referring to Honor she said, “I’m running around after a 3 1/2/-year-old so that always keeps you on your toes.”

She also watched what she ate while she was pregnant with Haven.

“It was my second pregnancy so I think I just didn’t indulge as much,” she explains. “It was easier to snap back.”

Having a trainer helps too. Alba detailed her least favorite exercise…the burpee.

You have to squat down, do a push up and then clap your hands above your head.”

She added that fitness isn’t her priority and stated, “I just feel thankful and blessed that I have two beautiful children. That’s my focus.”

    I lost the weight by “running after a 3 year old”. Such bs….you lost it by barely eating and killing it at the gym. Just own it!

        Is that the best you can do?

      I know!!! I HATE when women celebrities say that. YOUR BODY IS FLAWLESS!!! You don’t obtain that body by running after a kid. You get it by eating practically nothing and working out like a fool.

        Hate to say it, but I totally agree with you….or she has the most FABULOUS genes ever…

      She doesn’t say that’s the only thing that helped her lose weight. She barely gained any extra weight during pregnancy- that’s how it should be and that’s what helps the most afterwards. Don’t be jealous because you’re a porker.
      You don’t need an expensive trainer or even a gym membership to get back in shape. Don’t eat like Jessica Simpson while you’re pregnant and get your exercise after you have the baby, you’ll be alright. I’m happy for her, she looks great.

        I’m glad you’re happy for her. I’m sure she really gives a sh*t.
        Also, is 5’4 and 125lbs a porker? If so then I guess you’re right.

        • Jax

          and im sure she gives a sh*t that you’re a jealous b*tch. just go to dunkin donuts and get your usual, you’ll feel better.
          (and yes, we’re all 5’4″ and 125 on the internet right? lol).

            Noone’s jealous here……except maybe you. Why so defensive? You a fatso who sits at home all day wishing you were ALba? Go do some burpee’s.

          Yes, in LA that would be considered a porker. Trust me. I am the same size as you and when I was there I stuck out like a beast.

        You definitely need a gym membership. I highly doubt she obtained that bikini body w/out a gym…..just an opinion.
        and I also highly doubt, although could be possible, but not in her case – that she could do it w/out the help of a trainer.

          You guys are so defensive and jealous it’s not even funny. I did it without a gym membership or a trainer, why is it so hard for you to believe it can be done? You can run around your neighborhood, you can buy a treadmill if you’d rather stay inside. Stick your feet under the couch and do some sit-ups every day! You can not sit on your computer for hours eating chips. It’s REALLY not so hard to do. And if you have a little determination there’s no need for a trainer to tell you what to do.
          Of course if you gain 50lbs while pregnant it’ll be a little harder, but still very possible. You guys really need some self control. No wonder so many people are overweight.

          Is everyone here blind? She never said she didn’t work out:

          “Having a trainer helps too. Alba detailed her least favorite exercise…the burpee.

          You have to squat down, do a push up and then clap your hands above your head.”

      Did she say she was stuffing her face and laying around on the couch? Of course she ate less and worked out, she never said she didn’t. What *is* your issue?

      • Anonymous

        I think it was LITTLE less than just “eating less and working out…”

        • Anony2

          That sentence makes no sense.

    • Jax

      jealous are we?

  • SARA

    Her body is flawless right now. Jealous.

    I hate burpee’s also…..they are my least favorite as well.

  • anonymousk

    I don’t believe that she got it back from running after her kid, but I don’t think she necessarily starved herself. Women can and do eat healthy and exercise during their pregnancies. She has enough money to hire someone to keep her on track.

    Want some ice with that Haterade? LOL Whatevs. *Shrugs shoulders* Sadly enough she doesn’t have the option of being a porker as she is the bread winner in the family. IJS.

    Ah this post reaks of bitter haterade. And I agree that it’s obvious as day that the 1st Anonymous is secretly a fat person, because the ‘you can’t lose weight without starving yourself to death’ is a universal fat chick cliche.

    They did the same thing with Jennifer Hudson. Any time someone has more willpower and improves their body better than them, the 1st thing all the overweight girls do is cry eating disorder or lipo. A fat girl can never be happy when another loses weight because it makes them insecure & they refuse to own up the fact that it is very much possible for Jessica to do for several reasons:

    1. Given she’s wealthy, it’s a given that she has a nutrionist, and afew nannies to help her prepare healthy meals.
    2. She has a personal trainer to keep her on track, and nannies to look after her kids while she gets back in shape.
    3. A pregnant woman, on average, gains about 20-50lbs. With even a minimal 30 minute, consistant, fitness routine combining both weights and cardio, an normal person will lose a pound a week. Honor is 3 years old. It wouldn’t even take her at most 3 or 4 months after birth to lose all of that, and she’s had 3 years. With Haven, it’s been 6 months since birth. She’s had more than enough time to get back in shape.

    Now stop being bitter jealous catty betches and mind your own bodies.
