Jessica Alba covers the April 2012 issue of Parenting magazine with her girls, Honor and Haven. In the interview, Jessica talks about her how having kids has changed her life, being the bad cop at home and her baby products company,

On How Life Has Changed Since Having Kids: "Before I had kids, I was always so focused on my career, and it was always such a big thing for me. But once I had kids, it changed. That's probably the thing that's surprised me the most about motherhood-just how secondary everything else is. Nothing else really matters to me aside from my children and their well-being."

On Being the Bad Cop: "I'm the disciplinarian. I think it's because I was kind of a naughty kid myself: I'd push my parents' buttons and test them to see how much I could get away with."

On Launching Her Company, "I went to see Christopher Gavigan-he's a leader in environmental health, and his book, Healthy Child, Healthy World: Creating a Cleaner, Greener, Safer Home, had taught me so much. I asked him if he-d be interested in starting a babycare-products company with me. Cash thought it was a great idea, too, so Christopher and I set about building the Honest Company. We deliver diapers, wipes, cleaners, and toiletries-all free of harmful chemicals-right to your door. And they're cute! No brown diapers here!"
