Jessica Alba: “Having Babies Helped Me Embrace My Sexuality”

In her latest blog for iVillage, mom-of-two Jessica Alba opens up about how motherhood has made her “feel more confident" and "sexy.” Read on about how the proud mom to daughters Honor, nearly 4, and Haven, 9 months, also says she's learned to embrace her sexuality since having babies.  

It’s really amazing how your perspective shifts and your definition of sexy evolves once you become a mother," Jessica writes. "Before having Honor and Haven, I was super-critical of my looks and worried more about inevitable changes to my body. I couldn’t even say the word “sexy” to describe myself without feeling funny and awkward."

The brunette beauty, 31, goes on to say motherhood has increased her confidence.

“But becoming a mom has definitely made me feel more confident and secure than I ever did in my 20s,” she admits. “Even though I can’t ever get down to my pre-baby weight before having Honor, my jeans don’t zip up the same way, and things just hang differently (all moms know how that goes!), I feel completely comfortable in my skin and my idea of perfection has changed.”

For the Fantastic Four actress, motherhood has helped her come out of her “shy” shell.

Having babies also helped me embrace my sexuality,” Jess shares. “Up until then, I was quite shy about it. But once I experienced how incredible and amazing it was to create a life, it was empowering. Now, I feel freer to express myself and just be me. Through motherhood I really came into my own and, for me, feeling sexy is all about this type of comfort, confidence, and true happiness.

    How could we take anyone seriously who named her kids Honor and Haven?! Plus, she got pregnant out of wedlock, she had NO problem embracing her sexuality before! Not to mention, like Paul said, she doesn’t care about body image? HA!

      Of course when there are wonderful names like Apple and Zuma or Bluebell. These are decent names. And pregnant before marriage look how many on this site don’t bother even after the child’s birth (which many here don’t even consider relevant any longer). Sex compared to sexuality is like comparing cookies to fine dining. Perspective changes and she seems to believed hers has evolved. Good luck to her. Now don’t you have some Oreos to attack?

      She said she doesn’t care about her body image, not that she doesn’t care about her body.

        Same difference. Body image – she doesn’t care how her body looks. Yes, you most certainly do…..your body, as stated above, was flawless 2 months after giving birth. That doesn’t come naturally. Why don’t you just own up to the fact you’re obsessed w/ being perfect.
