Jessica Alba Says Being Pregnant Is Not Sexy — Do You Agree?

Jessica and Cash plan to find out the sex of their soon-to-be baby, but they’re not telling anyone what it is!

She may be one of the most beautiful women on the planet, but Jessica Alba says pregnancy does not make her feel sexy. “I just don’t associate being pregnant with being sexy,” the actress, 29, tells People. “I think being pregnant is grounding and you feel like part of the earth and connected with women. It’s not a sex thing to me. It’s a grounding, maternal thing.” What do you think, HollyMoms?

Jessica, who is expecting her second child this summer with her “supportive, most loving and caring” husband Cash Warren, says her 2½-year-old daughter Honor Marie will be “a very attentive big sister” to her soon-to-be sibling. As for the baby’s sex, Jessica and Cash are keeping it a secret. “We’re going to find out, but we probably won’t announce it,” she explains. “We did the same with Honor.”

And by the sound of it, Honor will be teaching her little brother or sister how to read and go pee-pee on the potty! “She has a Potty Time book with animals that she’s obsessed with,” Jessica shares. It teaches you manners like washing your hands and closing the door … basic little kid manners.” Aww!

And bathroom books are the only kind Honor likes to read! “Horton Hatches the Egg is her favorite,” Jessica says, adding the Pinkalicious and Goldilicious book series as other popular picks. “We read that at least four times a week because she likes the same book over and over again. Usually, it’s more than that because we read throughout the day. And at night, we read at least two or three stories.”

Jessica says her second pregnancy is “less overwhelming, and less daunting, for sure,” saying, “You accept that you’re going to make mistakes, that you’re going to try your hardest and you’ll love them with your everything. That’s all you can do.” We agree! Congrats!
