Jessica Alba about her post-baby body.

Jessica Alba.
Jessica Alba is one of the most beautiful women in the world, but even beautiful women like Jessica have their insecurities. Jessica, 30, is pregnant with her second child. In the August issue of the American Allure she says that after she gave birth to her first child, daughter Honor Marie, she didn't manage to shed all the baby weight. She puts it as boldly as "I can’t ever get down to the weight I was before I had Honor. My body’s just different. The jeans just sort of zip up differently, and things hang differently. It’s a miracle what happens, but you definitely are different afterward. Unless you're Gisele [Bündchen]."

Now that she's a mother, she has found that the experience of being pregnant and giving birth has had an unexpected upside: it has helped her got more in touch with her own sexuality. Jessica says, "I was quite shy with it [sexuality]. It wasn’t something I embraced until I had my daughter. I saw how incredible and amazing it is to be a woman and to be able to create a life.” She continues, "There’s a reason why certain areas of the body are desirable — because it all leads to reproduction.There’s a science behind it all. It’s not just to sell whatever you’re selling on a billboard or a magazine or a movie.”

A downside of her pregnancy? The constant attention from press and paparazzi for her changing body. "My publicist said the other day, ‘You can’t just be going to the grocery store - you have to be ‘flaunting your baby bump,’” she says. “You’re pregnant. Your stomach is not going to be flat. You’re not ‘flaunting’ it; you’re just walking to the store or across a parking lot."

 Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren expect their baby to arrive in September. It is unknown whether they're having a boy or a girl. Although there is a possibility to big sister Honor already told the paparazzi the name and gender of the expected bundle of joy.
