Jessica Alba is expecting her third child with husband Cash Warren, and she has finally revealed the sex of the baby. Just hours before appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon — where she discussed potential names for the baby — the actress and entrepreneur revealed that she will be having a baby boy.
The mother of daughters Honor, 9, and Haven, 6, posted an adorable video to Facebook of the moment she and her family found out. “Cash and I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce… 👶💙 #officiallyoutnumbered #babyboy #cantwaittospoilhim #hugsandkissesforlife #soontobemamaofthree,” she captioned the confetti-filled clip.
In her appearance on Wednesday night’s episode of The Tonight Show, Alba discussed her excitement about the news. “We’re super stoked,” she said. “It’s going to be a whole situation.” Alba and Fallon also brainstormed names for the new baby.
Fallon, of course, offered jokes like “Hale and Hearty,” after the restaurant chain, as well as “Hermit.”
Alba, however, had some parameters, explaining that her two daughter’s have names that start with the letter H but are also words, following their father whose name, Cash, is also a noun. Warren, for his part, apparently suggested the name “Dick with a silent H,” spelled “Hdick.”
“He thinks it’s like, old school,” Alba said. “But I’m like, ‘no, it’s not.'”
Alba also shared her pregnancy cravings, saying she has been eating a lot of Japanese food and dreaming about desserts — which worked out perfectly considering Fallon has a new secret collaboration with Ben & Jerry’s in the works. The late-night host gave Alba a sneak peek of the flavor, which she fully approved. “Oh, it’s really good…it’s like heaven.”
Of course, that gave Fallon a curious idea for another baby name, “Heaven Warren,” which Alba quickly shut down. Thankfully, she has a bit more time to brainstorm.
Jessica Alba is experiencing the seriously glorious side effects of pregnancy. From shiny, super-long lengths to her out-of-this-world glowing skin it’s safe to say that the third times a charm for the genetically blessed actress. While her stunning curves are causing major daily paparazzi frenzy, those coveted beauty staples are proof that Alba’s best pre-natal accessory is her supernaturally blessed hair.
Shortly after making the announcement this summer, the actress debuted her bump alongside a set of pigtail braids in Maui–a look that surely was inspired by her youngest daughter, Haven. And while the Honest Beauty founder, who will give birth to a baby boy next month, tends to stick to her natural, ever-growing signature waves, she’s not afraid to embrace a hot tool or updo with pure aplomb.
Just last week in New York City, Alba wore her signature highlights in a half-up bun for an East-meets-West-coast look that’s every bit traditional and new-mother chic. Whether she is out and about with her beach-y brunette curls in Manhattan, or sipping vitamin and anti-oxidant-packed berry smoothies in twisted low knots in West Hollywood, there’s no doubt the actress will pass on some serious hair genes. Here, nine ways Alba is making the most of her glowing, nine-month pregnancy.
