Jessica Alba Jokes: I Wish Honor Would Dress Her Age

Like mother, like daughter?

Sounds like such is the case — at least in the style department — for Jessica Alba and 5½-year-old daughter Honor Marie.

But it’s not necessarily something Alba, 32, is thrilled about. It’s not like she wants her daughter to have poor taste, she just wishes her little one dressed for her age.

“Honor likes wearing heels and dresses,” Alba told PEOPLE Monday at an intimate fête inside the Mondrian Hotel’s Herringbone restaurant in West Hollywood to celebrate her very first Nylon magazine cover. “I’m like, ‘No! [Don't you want to] climb a tree?’”

The happy-go-lucky founder of The Honest Company has echoed similar statements to PEOPLE in the past: “For sure I see a mini me. I was a tomboy when I was a kid. Honor is like me grown up. It’s so bizarre.”

Jessica Alba: Why Not Kissing Your Kids on the Mouth Is Weird

03/05/2014 at 03:00 PM ET

People are all about puppy love, so Jessica Alba just can’t understand why parents would shy away from smooches with their children.

The mom-of-two admits she sees nothing wrong with kissing her daughters, Honor Marie, 5½, and Haven Garner, 2½, on the mouth — and can’t believe others might find it unusual.

“Really?! Why?! It’s your baby. People allow dogs to lick at their mouths,” Alba, 32, says in the April issue of Redbook.

Despite her success in the spotlight, the actress admits many of her “closest girlfriends” hail from outside of Hollywood — straight from her Mommy and Me class.

Jessica Alba‘s baby product empire continues to grow!

Just last month, the actress, author and Honest Company co-founder teamed up with Baby Jogger to release a stylish new take on the City Mini GT stroller.

And now, she’s connecting with another popular brand for a chic spin on an old favorite — aden + anais‘s super cute (and soft!) muslin swaddles.

The gender-neutral designs (hot air balloon elephants, stars and clouds) are printed on GOTS certified organic cotton and retail for $55. Honest members can snap them up for $41.21.

“These are the newest item in our specially curated assortment of unique family essentials, The Collective,” Alba says.

Now you can stroll like starlet Jessica Alba! The actress, author, and co-founder of The Honest Company is teaming up with Baby Jogger to launch a super sleek limited edition stroller.

The City Mini GT ($369) is part of the eco-conscious home and baby product brand’s new line of designer offerings called The Collective, which includes everything from toys and accessories to gear from boutique stores like Manny and Simon and B.Box.

Just like the regular City Mini GT, this version has the genius folds-with-one-hand technology that all moms adore, but it’s covered in an ultra-durable, easy-to-wash fabric that matches the company’s gray and teal color palette.

Jessica Alba: How I (Try to) Discipline My Daughters

Having a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old under the same roof is a delicate balancing act — and one that proud mother Jessica Alba is just starting to truly appreciate.

“Their needs are a little different now,” the actress told PEOPLE of daughters Honor Marie and Haven Garner while attending the second annual Baby2Baby Gala. “They’re getting to an age where they play together and they do fight, which is funny.”

Funny in the sense that the sisters don’t engage in straight fisticuffs, rather they involve themselves in the age-old ritual of sibling rivalry merging with sibling revelry.

“They steal stuff from each other!” Alba shares. “They’re constantly snatching things out of the other one’s hand, destroying something that the other one’s building.”
