Health-conscious mom Jessica Alba is the cover girl for the February issue of Self magazine. The 28-year-old star of the upcoming flick Valentine's Day opens up about everything from her marriage to longtime love Cash Warren to their oh-so-adorable 1 1/2-year-old daughter Honor Marie - and reveals how she learned to love her pregnancy stretch marks.
Here are a few of the interview highlights:
On how she unwinds: “Honor is the best cure for stress. When I spend time with her, I get instant perspective. I can be hard on myself if I don’t do everything perfectly. But now that I have her, there’s no time for that. I want to teach her that you can learn from your mistakes, and if you keep moving and stay positive and loving, everything will work out.”
On her post-baby body: “Even though some might consider them a flaw, I’ve learned to love my stretch marks. Pregnancy was the most incredible experience I’ve ever had. So I’ll take the stretch marks. I’ll take the sagging boobs. I’ll take the cellulite I can never get rid of. If you walk around with your head held high and you’re happy and positive, then all that other stuff is irrelevant. Confidence is number one.”
