Walking the red carpet in Gucci, Jessica Alba was every inch the glamour girl last night at Alicia Keys’ Black Ball in New York City. But when it came time to talk, Jessica, 27, switched gears from movie star to mom. The actress told PEOPLE that "everything is cute" about 5-month-old daughter Honor Marie. "Everything is fun, including the explosive diarrhea," she shared. "She’s the love of my life. The love is profound … it’s crazy. She gives everything more meaning."
Telling PEOPLE that she and Honor play with "anything that makes her happy," Jessica said that becoming close with her baby has strengthened her bonds with others, as well. "It brings family together. It brings friends together," she shared. "It makes every decision that you make that much more important."
Jessica shared that Honor isn’t quite sleeping through the night yet, although she’s getting there. "She gets a few bottles a night. But she doesn’t wake up and want to hang out." And as for any first words? "I think she accidentally says ‘mama’ when she’s crying," Jessica said. "But I don’t know if it’s on purpose yet. I don’t know if she knows that I’m the mama."
Honor’s ‘dada’ is Jessica’s husband, Cash Warren.
