Jessica Alba makes balancing being a mom, wife, actress and businesswoman look effortless — but, she says, it isn’t always so easy.

In the spring issue of Parents Latina magazine, Alba, who co-founded The Honest Company, shares some advice for mothers looking to start their own businesses.

“Don’t get overwhelmed trying to do everything at once,” she says. “Lay out what you can get done now and what will take longer.”

Alba warns these busy women not to let “mom guilt” get the best of them.

Jessica Alba Says She Still Feels Everything Her ‘Sweet’ Daughters Do Is ‘Groundbreaking’

12/10/2015 at 03:00 PM ET

Jessica Alba‘s daughters are the (unwitting) stars of her social media accounts, but she just can’t help herself — she is so proud of her girls.

“They’re just so funny to me,” she tells PEOPLE of daughters Honor Marie, 7½, and Haven Garner, 4, at the 2015 March of Dimes Celebration of Babies Luncheon.

So what is the mogul capturing for SnapChat? Just “what every 7 and 4-year-old do.”

“To me, it’s all groundbreaking, but they’re just average, funny, sweet little girls,” she shares.

Jessica Alba’s Daughters Are Master Chefs in the Making

06/16/2015 at 11:00 AM ET

Jessica Alba has two little sous chefs at home: daughters Honor Marie and Haven Garner.

“It always take three times longer when they help, but I try to have them participate in any kind of cooking,” the actress told PEOPLE at the ZICO Coconut Water event in New York City on Tuesday.

“It’s good for them to understand the process of making food, and where it comes from. They are also more inclined to eat it, if they participate in making it.”

Among their favorite foods to cook up together are meatballs, smoothies and “anything that needs mashing” or “cracking eggs.”

Beyonce’s Sweet Mother’s Day Photo – and More Stars Celebrating Moms

05/10/2015 at 06:30 PM ET

If you had any doubt that Blue Ivy is a mini-me version of Beyoncé, this recent Instagram should clear things up.

Bey, who’s celebrating her fourth Mother’s Day, shared two side-by-side photos: one throwback to the ’80s in which she’s standing with her mom, Tina Knowles, and a second where she’s with Blue. The similarities between the two are only accentuated by the fact that they’re sporting similar hairstyles: center-parted pigtails for Beyoncé and center-parted pigtail topknots for Blue.

“Sending love to Mothers around the world,” the 33-year-old singer captioned the photo, which she shared with her 32.3 million followers on Sunday.

The post captured 776,000 likes (and yes, we assume some of those likes were due in part to Mama Tina’s killer 1980s look composed of shoulder pads, a studded belt and shoulder-grazing earrings).

Other celeb moms also took to Insta to give thanks to their children with adorable #ussies and share how they celebrated the day, while famous daddies also used the platform to honor the mothers of their children.
