Taking a break from acting has given mom-to-be Jessica Alba ample time to prepare for her baby’s arrival. “I’m not working so it’s been a good place to put all my energy — it’s been a nice distraction,” she told People magazine. “I’m used to having to be somewhere all the time, and it’s kind of the first time in my life where I really haven’t been working in a while, and now it’s just about the baby being healthy, the house being ready, and nesting, it’s really different. It’s cool – I feel like I’m fully absorbing the whole experience,” she said.
Her focus is on making sure everything is finished before the baby, who Jessica recently revealed is a girl, arrives. “I’m just trying to get my house ready before [she] comes…It’s kind of hectic, it’s getting close and the house isn’t even ready yet.”
Jessica is not only spending most of her time prepping for baby, she is also keeping a close eye on her prenatal health. “I have to make sure that I’m eating more of the right nutrients and vitamins, but I’m not used to eating this much,” she said. “I’ve had to take time out of the day to eat before I get cranky and rundown and tired. Before I was just like the energizer bunny.”
