Jessica Alba Covers Elle Magazine

Jessica Alba graces the cover of Elle magazine in the March 2009 issue. Inside she opens up about about labor, adjusting to motherhood, her slimming secret, and separation anxiety. Here’s a sampling:

On giving birth: “Contractions aren’t that bad. If you’ve ever had bad cramps? That’s what they’re like. But that moment when they put the baby on your chest – that’s deep. It’s a deep experience.”

On getting back into shape so quickly after giving birth: “I did it for the Campari job. [The workouts] were horrible. I cried. And I haven’t worked out since.”

Find out how Jessica slimmed down after giving birth…

On her secret to looking slim after giving birth: “I wore a girdle. Eight weeks after my girlfriend had her baby, you could see her six-pack. She told me to put an elastic band around my waist – any kind of band or girdle works. She was like, “I slept in it.” I didn’t recover as fast as she did. I don’t have a six-pack – that’s just not my body at all.”

On naming her daughter Honor: “It’s weird; your name can really shape who you are. When I was born, my name was supposed to be Farrah Dawn. My mother looked like Farrah Fawcett, so she thought her daughter would, too. When I came out dark, my father had to scratch it off the birth certificate.”

On being away from Honor:” This is the first time I’ve been away from her. It’s been six days. It sucks; it’s the worst thing ever. But we Skype, so I can see her on video. The worst is when you can see her little chubby hands grab the screen, and I’m not there. [She pauses, her eyes welling up, then laughs as she wipes the tears away.] That’s a new thing—I never cried before. Just being a mother is making me a big, weepy mess.”

On having an exotic look: “Anyone who’s part of pop culture is going to be sensationalized and spun into something, some one-liner. Also, there aren’t many other stars, besides Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez, who most people in the world can related to. We look like people of the world – I can kind of mix in with girls in Asia, South America, Europe.”

Leni & Daddy’s Day Out

Seal and his 4 1/2-year-old daughter Leni spent some quality time together at the movies over the weekend.

Leni’s biological father is Flavio Briatore, however, the Italian mogul is not a part of Leni’s life. Mom, Heidi Klum, has publicly stated that “Seal is Leni’s father.”

Seal recently stated that he accepted Leni as his own from the very beginning: “A month into our relationship, she told me she was pregnant, but was no longer with the father. I told her it didn’t change the way I felt about her. Apart from being my wife, she’s also my best friend.”

Seal and Heidi are also parents to 3-year-old Henry and 2-year-old Johan.

Kingston: This Is The Way I Roll In London-Town!

Kingston: This Is The Way I Roll In London-Town!

This is the way Kingston Rossdale rolls in London-Town. Whilst mum Gwen Stefani, dad Gavin Rossdale and brother Zuma all remained in the house, 2 1/2-year-old Kingston braved the wet London weather to go for a trike ride with his nanny. Wrapped up in two hoodies (not one of mum Gwen’s recalled ones), a thick coat and boots, Kingston peddled to the shops on his tricycle, with his ‘cellphone’ on the dashboard in case of any emergencies.

Over the weekend, Gwen and Gavin were seen with their two sons Kingston and Zuma, 5 months, leaving a restaurant in London. See thumbnail pictures below.
