Jessica Alba is one busy lady. On top of taking care of three-year-old Honor Marie and getting ready for the arrival of her second baby any day now, she also launching a new eco-friendly ecommerce site for parents and babies called The Honest Company in honor of her little girl.

“It’s a really exciting and fun time,” the actress, 30, told People magazine.

On adding to her brood, she said, “It feels like you’re really officially, really truly a mom when you have two kids. [With] one kid you’re a mom for sure, but two takes it to another level.”

Although her company will launch in the next few months, that doesn't mean that the Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World actress is kissing Hollywood goodbye. Actually, she's interested in taking a new, hardcore action role as soon as she bounces back from baby number two.

“Doing the Spy Kids movie I got a taste of doing action again,” the Mexicana, who got her big break in James Cameron's sci-fi action show Dark Angel, says. “I liked it and I miss it … I’m really looking forward to finding a good action project. I was trained for so long on doing my own stunts.”

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
