Jessica Alba is mother to three kids, but her morning routine of feeding and cuddling with her littlest one never gets old.
The Highlight Of Alba's Day
The Honest Company founder shared an Instagram video clip of her favorite time of the day: mornings with her two-month-old son Hayes Alba Warren. The baby, already sporting an adorable head of dark hair, is shown sleeping peacefully on Alba's chest.
"I've never been a morning person... until now," she wrote in the caption of the photo. "Our morning feeding/cuddle is my favorite time of the day."

While Alba's latest Instagram post is a post-feeding video, the mother of three isn't shy about sharing nursing photos as well. Like many regular moms, she often finds herself in need of nursing in various places from the office to a Target dressing room to the Golden Globes — and the actress shares the snaps on Instagram to do her part in shedding the stigma of public breastfeeding.
Self-Love And Mom Time
The Dark Angel star opened up to the Today last year about the struggles of being a mother and how she deals with it day to day. While she loves cuddling with her children, Alba admits that it can also be draining to feel like she has no time for herself.
"Any mom who all of the sudden has little people that rely heavily on them for survival needs to maintain her own sense of self," Alba explains. "You need to cut yourself some slack and bite off what you can chew. Things will be compromised and you just have to be okay with that."
She adds that it's crucial to still have a sense of self and time alone, pointing out that a happy mom means everyone is happy as well.
"So, if you need to get a manicure, if you need a girl's night out, if you need to take a bath and not make dinner that night, it's okay, everyone will survive," the actress concludes.
Alba has three children with husband Cash Warren: Honor Marie, 9, Haven Garner, 6, and Hayes.
Life Outside The Family
For Alba, life beyond her husband and three kids are focused on The Honest Company, the brand she founded to provide non-toxic, eco-friendly products to the market.
The success of her business meant that Alba's priorities shifted away from acting, but the Fantastic Four actress still takes the occasional role. Recently, Alba starred in Netflix's El Camino Christmas with Luke Grimes, Tim Allen, and Dax Shepard.
