Proud parents

Alba and her husband, Cash Warren, were the proud parents of two daughters, Haven Garner, 6, and Honor Marie, 9½, before the birth of Hayes.

The proud parents shared news of their New Year Eve bundle of joy on their social media pages. Warren said,

He also revealed that Hayes was born slightly ahead of schedule and chipped in some adorable words in praise of his wife.

Warren most certainly loves his daughters, but he is clearly overjoyed to have another dude in the house.

Back to work

The mom of three is, however, already back to work. She recently shared news that she, Olivia Munn, and Gabrielle Union will be starring in a spinoff pilot based on the film Bad Boys.

But, she is not letting work get in the way of being a new mom. When Hayes turned 1 and 2 months, she shared cute pictures with her followers on Instagram.

The little one even got a customized bedding set to mark his milestones.

It takes a village

The Hollywood leading woman is definitely a hands-on mom, but she does not do it alone. She sure gets help from Warren. Even Honor pitches in sometimes. But, Alba has her Nanny, Connie, to thank mostly.

And with no holds barred, she gushed about the woman who helped her raise her first daughter. She also revealed that Nanny Connie, who had left the family briefly, was back with them and had written a book on child rearing.

Alba's candid post is very refreshing. It sets the tone for more open conversations around raising children.

Women are often pressured into acting self-sufficient and are unwilling to admit that they need help with raising their children.

Especially in Hollywood, celebrities are shamed for admitting that they get help from nannies and babysitters.

Hopefully, Alba's post will encourage more parents to get the help they need without guilt. It would be great also if more Hollywood big names publicly celebrate the people who work tirelessly behind the scene to keep their families looking picture-perfect.

So, Jay Z and Beyonce, Kim and Kanye, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum, any takers?
