Alba reveals daughters’ ambitions

Jessica Alba has revealed her daughters Honor and Haven have some pretty wild ambitions for their future careers.

The stunning 34-year-old actress is mother to six-year-old Honor and three-year-old Haven with husband Cash Warren.

And in a post for SELF magazine, in which she interviewed FEED Projects founder Lauren Bush Lauren, Jessica revealed her children’s somewhat wild ambitions for their futures.

“My daughters want to be gymnasts, scientists, doctors, and mermaids,” Jessica told Lauren. “You know? I’m like, ‘Just study really hard!’ ”

Jessica, who has a hugely successful business of her own – The Honest Company – has collaborated with Lauren on Honest + FEED tribal print cotton Diaper Bag.

In the interview, she told Lauren that she admired the way she has managed to create a successful, but philanthropic, business.

“As a businesswoman, what I think is most impressive is that with FEED you’ve found a pretty sustainable business model,” Jessica said. “A lot of non-profits are struggling to figure out how to fund their efforts and you took a very proactive route by creating goods and making a donation with each purchase. I think you’re one of the first to ever do that.”

Jessica and Lauren also discussed the ways they start their days – with both admitting they love a SoulCycle workout session to kick things off.

However, Jessica revealed she has a particular preference for where she sits when she takes part in the indoor cycling class, adding: “I get claustrophobic in the middle!”

And Lauren added of the benefits of the exercise class: “I think it’s the chemical effects of working out. It starts you off on the right foot and your brain, at least in my case, wakes up so I feel more functioning and more aware. I think, too, just starting the day with that discipline, waking up earlier and forcing yourself to go to the gym is helpful.”
