Jessica Alba's Pregnancy Cravings: Cheeseburgers and Watermelons!

What’s that they say about giving birth being like pushing out a watermelon?

Jessica Alba, 29, is content with pregnancy this time around, saying she’s no longer anxious about the whole process. And the mom of 2½-year-old Honor, who is expecting baby number two with hubby Cash Warren, 32, this fall, stays healthy and happy by satisfying her cravings and exercising! Do you do the same, HollyMoms?

Jessica isn’t working out as hard as usual, but she’s definitely putting in a valiant effort to stay fit for the baby. “I’d like to still do something five days a week, from a half hour to an hour — nothing excessive, just some moving [around],” she explains to Latina. “It makes the whole pregnancy so much easier. The more fit you are, the easier the birth is, and a healthier baby you’re going to have.”

A lot of celebrity moms kept up with a workout routine throughout their pregnancy and were able to drop those post-baby pounds fast. And we all know how that excess weight shows up — induldging in pregnancy cravings!

“Sometimes you can’t get a food out of your mind. I could always eat watermelon. With Honor, I loved fruit, too. It’s a decent craving,” she shares. “You still eat cheeseburgers and pickles — you just want watermelon really bad. I don’t deprive myself of anything. I eat whatever.”

And luckily for Jessica, she’s prepared this time around. Pregnancy no longer has her anxious about every little thing — she knows what to expect!

“Maybe it’s because my body hormonally has already been through it, so I’m not being broken in,” the actress reveals. “My body knows what to do. It’s not as daunting. With Honor, I was constantly like, ‘Is she moving? Is her heart beating?’ I’d worry about everything and with this baby, I don’t have the same anxieties.”

Did you feel the same way, HollyMoms? Were you more comfortable with your second pregnancy?
