Add “baby guru” to Jessica Alba’s resume.
The “Love Guru” co-star and her new husband, Cash Warren, are new parents, her publicist Brad Cafarelli said Monday in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
The 27-year-old actress gave birth to a healthy baby girl — Honor Marie Warren — on Saturday, Cafarelli said. He didn’t provide further details, but Us Weekly reported that Alba gave birth at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Alba and Warren became engaged in late December following her announcement that she’s expecting a baby with Warren, 31. They met on the set of the 2005 film “The Fantastic Four,” which co-starred Alba as the Invisible Woman and employed Warren as a director’s assistant.
Outside of motherhood, this summer Alba joins Mike Myers in “The Love Guru” and will play a lingerie saleswoman who helps turn a loser’s life around in “Meet Bill.” Earlier this year, FHM readers magazine readers rated Alba the No. 3 sexiest woman alive (with “Transformers” star Megan Fox claiming the top spot).
What kind of mother will Alba be?
“I don’t want to be my child’s best friend,” she recently told Fit Pregnancy magazine. “I want to be a mom. But I do want my child to come to me when they have problems and need to talk, so it’s going to be about treading that line.”
Alba’s recently appeared in “Awake,” “Good Luck Chuck” and “The Ten.” She first gained fame as an action star on TV’s “Dark Angel.”
