Jessica Alba On Motherhood: I'm ''Trying to Figure It Out'

You can work out six times a week, count your calories every day, and polish yourself up so you look your best. But a pregnant Jessica Alba will beat you every time.

Jessica Alba showed up to the Spy Kids 4 premiere, glowing like the fabulous pregnant mom she is. Alba wore a black and white Dolce & Gabbanna maxi dress and paired it with a messy but cute updo.

Hollyscoop caught up with the actress at the Spy Kids press conference, and she filled us in on the details of being a working mom in Hollywood:

“Robert [Rodriguez] gave me quite a few pep talks about going back to work and finding balance, figuring it out.”

Alba told us that she had her reservations about spending time away from daughter Honor Marie.

“I was really torn about the whole thing. [Honor] is definitely more cuddly. She wants my attention more. She’s a little more needy.”

No surprise that Spy Kids director Robert Rodriguez wanted to make sure Alba went back to work.

“[Robert]’s a father of five, he’s done most of the most incredible things in his career as a working father. He definitely encouraged me to go back to work and do it in away that I felt good about being there,” Alba told HS.

Alba has been juggling her high-profile career with motherhood, and she somehow manages to look amazing every step of the way. But she’s modest about being a supermom, telling us:

“I consider myself trying to figure it out each day at a time. I'm doing the best I can."
