Jessica Alba Reveals She Felt ‘Confused’ And ‘Judged’ As A First Time Mom!

All moms are nice, right?!

In reality, that’s not the case. On Wednesday, Jessica Alba revealed in an interview that she struggled when she first became a parent after feeling “confused” and “judged.” Oh no!

She shared:

“Doesn’t it feel like the mean girl thing from high school sort of just transforms into adulthood through motherhood? I think it has to do with hormones, right?”

Hmm, very inneresting. We agree with the starlet though — not everyone leaves high school behind!

She continued:

“I mean, this is the first time I’m actually saying this out loud, but that mean girl stuff happens when your hormones are going crazy. And then your hormones go crazy again when you’re pregnant and having a baby—and even when you’re breastfeeding. And I feel like maybe it’s just all those hormones, and people don’t know where to put their energy, so they just start clashing.”

Now it seems that because of her experiences with these mean mommies Miz Alba is looking to encourage more positive conversations about motherhood.


In case you forgot, the brunette beauty founded The Honest Company following giving birth to her children Honor Warren and Haven Warren.

She explained:

“Now I’m one of those moms that gives you too much advice that you may or may not want. I think the biggest thing is that what works for you, or what works for your friend, isn’t going to work for everyone…There is no right or wrong.

I have two very different girls. The way that I parent one is different than the way that I parent the other. There’s no cookie-cutter way of going about it. I think we as women—and as moms—need to show younger girls that we support each other no matter what and to try and not be so judgmental.”

Well said Jessica!

The Barely Lethal actress accredited her success to having a great partner in her entrepreneur husband Cash Warren. Talk about #RelationshipGoals.
