Jessica Alba gives followers a glimpse into her family life as she shares several sweet snaps from the past holiday seasons: ‘With my mains’

Jessica Alba gave her Instagram followers a look into her family life by sharing a collection of photos and videos on her account on Friday.

The 42-year-old performer was joined by her husband, Cash Warren, and their children Honor, 15, Haven, 12, and Hayes, five, as they embraced the Christmas season.

The actress, who was recently cut a fashionable figure at a red-carpet event, also wrote that the snaps had been taken during ‘the holidays over the past few years with my mains’ in her post’s caption.

In her first snap, Alba and Warren donned matching pajamas while posing for a selfie in front of their Christmas tree.

The Dark Angel actress went on to include several other photos in which she wore matching pajamas with the rest of her family.

In one of her photos, the performer read a book as she fed her youngest child during his earlier years. 

The Sin City cast member also shared a snap of one of her family’s past Christmas cards.

Alba and Warren initially met during the filming of Fantastic Four, which was released in 2005.

The performer was formerly engaged to her former costar Michael Weatherly, although they went their separate ways in 2007. 

The pair dated for three years before they tied the knot in 2008, and their first daughter was born that June.

The happy couple went on to welcome their second child in August of 2011, and they added Hayes to their family in December of 2017.

Alba spoke to Motherly about raising children and told the media outlet that regardless of ‘what age, or stage or your child is in, you never stop parenting.’

She added: ‘The challenges and lessons you learn, as you’re growing and evolving, are what prepare you for the next stage your child is entering.’

The performer went on to speak about the stress of becoming a first-time parent. 

‘When you’re going through it the first time, everything feels overwhelming. I think we put so much pressure on ourselves to have the perfect plan,’ she said.

The actress then offered a bit of advice to new parents and expressed that they should not compare themselves to other mothers and fathers.

‘Don’t put so much pressure on yourself when it comes to milestones, or compare your baby to other babies. And remember, what works for one family is going to be so much different than what works for another family,’ she stated.
