The Honest Company founder Jessica Alba looks like a classic beauty on the latest issue of Los Angeles Confidential magazine. In an accompanying interview, the 30-year-old actress opens up about balancing a busy career with motherhood, her changing style, and how being mom to her two daughters Honor, 3, and Haven, 6 months, has transformed her.
On balancing a career and motherhood: “It’s not perfect. I’m constantly feeling I should be spending more time at home. I installed a kids’ corner in the office, and the baby is really easy right now. But every day is evolving and changing. If I’m not going to be home all day, I know I’ll be home at night.”
On how her style has changed over the years: “I didn’t use to wear a lot of color. I guess I’ve been more adventurous with my style and clothes choices since I’ve become a mother. It doesn’t feel as heavy or as big a deal. Before, I was incredibly bashful and shy. When I was younger, I was really uncomfortable in dresses and high heels or anything like that. Over the years, I’ve embraced a more feminine side.”
On how motherhood has changed her: “I feel like I’ve finally come into my own and become the person I always should have been, or that I always wanted to be. I feel more grounded, free and comfortable in my own skin than I ever have. The paradigm just shifted completely to my family.”
