With so many celebrity moms showing off their post-baby bikini bodies almost immediately after giving birth, it's understandable that an actress could feel pressure to lose the weight. But Jessica Alba -- who just gave birth to daughter Haven on Aug. 13 -- is one star who isn't stressed about bouncing back.
In fact, the mom of two (who's married to Cash Warren) says she took her time losing the weight after her first daughter, 3-year-old Honor, was born.
"It wasn't until my daughter was a year old that I lost it all completely," she told iVillage recently. "For me, it's just whatever I feel comfortable with."
She may not be stressed about her body, but that doesn't mean Alba doesn't feel overwhelmed sometimes. The 30-year-old actress, who plays a superhero in Spy Kids: All the Time in the World (in theaters Aug. 19), says she wishes she had her own superpowers to help her out with her mommy duties. So, what's number one on her wish list?
"To be able to clone myself," she says. "I wish I could be myself, but in three different places."
Watch our exclusive video to find out how being a mom has changed Alba's movie choices and why she says she's happy to take on smaller roles.
