Actor Jessica Alba says her pregnancy helped her learn to respect her body and she feels it is incredible being a mother.
The 35-year-old star revealed that her two daughters, Honor, eight, and five-year-old Haven, gave her a new found respect for her body, reported FemaleFirst.
“It’s incredible being a mom, I love it. I was much more stressed and concerned about my body before I had kids.
“But now I know how silly and unimportant it is, so it’s certainly given me perspective.
“Being pregnant and giving birth gave me a new found respect for my body, it’s amazing,” she said. The actor said she lacked self-confidence when it came to her figure. “I was a lot more critical of my body (before having kids) when it was probably pretty awesome. I was so skinny!”
