This one’s for the books!

Expectant mom Jessica Alba works yet another posh ensemble Wednesday at the Los Angeles launch party for the new children’s book, Carla and Leo’s World of Dance.

The actress and husband Cash Warren expect a sibling for daughter Honor Marie, 3, this fall, and Alba, 30, admits it has been tough trying to balance parenting and pregnancy.

“A little harder on the body,” she said.

“My daughter still wants to be picked up and ever since my belly popped she’s really on me.”

She looks so beautiful!

Gorgeous! She never seems to go wrong, but I think it’s partly because she is so beautiful.

Jessica is beautiful and turquoise is a lovely color for her.

As to her daughter wanting to be carried even though Jessica is pregnant, for heaven’s sake, Jessica–tell your daughter you can’t pick her up and carry her now! I know when I was pregnant with my second son, my doctor told me “If it hurts you to carry your (first) son in your arms (he was 3 1/2 years old) don’t do it!” And, I didn’t. My son didn’t like it, but he learned he had to walk until I healed from my C-section.

I like Jessica, I really do. But I think a three year old is big enough to be told mom can’t always pick her up right now, and why, and that when the baby comes there will be lots of time to catch up.

That is a gorgeous color on her! She glows.

Honey, put on a bra. You’ll be thankful in about 20 years when you’re not hanging down to your navel.

Rumor has it Jessica is having another girl to be named Eva!!! Congrats to the family!

S/N: When mothers get pregnant the child may revert back to babyish ways. You just have to muscle through it. It’ll pass.

Although I think Eva is a nice name, I do hope they have a different name for her – if it is a girl! 🙂 I don’t think the name Eva goes well with the name Honor. But it is of course their baby and therefore their choice.

And yes, she looks very pretty. And Honor is such a cutie.

As long as the name fits the last name–I think it’s a boy!
