It’s hard to imagine Jessica Alba having any insecurities, particularly about her body, but the celebrity mom of two opened up in her newest blog for iVillage, how becoming a mother helped her see things in a different light.
Jessica penned, “It’s really amazing how your perspective shifts and your definition of sexy evolves once you become a mother. Before having Honor [almost 4] and Haven [9 months], 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.”
However, with motherhood came confidence, she says, writing,”But 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.”
She added, “Having babies also helped me embrace my sexuality. Up until then, I was quite shy about it. But once I experienced how incredible and amazing it was to create a life, it was empowering. Now, I feel freer to express myself and just be me. Through motherhood I really came into my own and, for me, feeling sexy is all about this type of comfort, confidence, and true happiness.”
