Jessica Alba Admits Her Body Image Improved After Having Babies

Jessica Alba sexy
The svelte actress admits in her blog for iVillage that she feels "sexy" as a mom.

Jessica Alba feels so much better about her body now that she's older and has two beautiful daughters, Honor and Haven, with husband Cash Warren.

We've always thought the 31-year-old has a unique and appealing look, but Alba writes on her blog for iVillage:

"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." We hear you, Jessica! How Jessica Alba Keeps Her Marriage Hot & Spicy With Cash Warren

The actress also admits her 20s were a difficult age, as she didn't feel at home in her body and was still questioning her figure. She writes:

"Becoming a mom has definitely made me feel more confident and secure than I ever did in my 20s. 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."

Motherhood seems to be working out well for the celebrity mom, who adds, "Through motherhood I really came into my own and, for me, feeling sexy is all about this type of comfort, confidence, and true happiness."

We're happy she's so confident now!
