Jessica Alba may be famed for her roles in action movies Sin City and Fantastic Four, but the 32-year-old is also a mother-of-two and has her own baby brand called The Honest Company.
Jessica, who has daughters Honor, five, and Haven, two, with her husband Cash Warren, recently told Us Weekly about her parenting strategies and revealed what she carries in her baby bag.
Jessica founded her own eco-friendly parenting company
For a start Jessica has ensured that she’s not always responsible for carrying her daughters’ things – her Honest Company tote is grey, “so my husband will carry it too.”

“Havie gets carsick,” revealed the stylish Californian star. “So I have snacks ready. A lollipop or a squeezy fruit pouch usually helps.”
When quizzed on how she keeps her youngsters entertained, the Into the Blue actress said her secret weapon is a classic set of crayons.
“I carry big Melissa & Doug crayons,” said Jessica. “They’re unbreakable! And a Kitty notepad for Honor.

“Havie has Dora the Explorer colouring books. Everything is Dora with Havie – she rolls her R’s with a cute little accent.”
Honor and Haven are also pretty taken with technology according to their proud mother.

“The girls love to watch videos of themselves on my iPhone,” she said. “I post them on my private Instagram. What’s more exciting than seeing yourself play at the park”
Jessica and Cash have been married for six years
Jessica also revealed that she’s taken a leaf out of Kate Middleton’s parenting book and uses an Aden + Anais blanket to keep her daughters warm on long car journeys.
Just like Prince George when he left the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in July, Jessica’s daughter Haven wraps up one of the US company’s “cosy” blankets.
“It’s huge,” said Jessica. “So it’s also good for impromptu picnics.”
