Playing Jessica Alba on Her Daughters: ‘I Really Am Building The Honest Company for Them’

Jessica Alba is a mother of two, an actress and co-founder of The Honest Company.

The brand has grown immensely in the two years since its launch, and it’s something she hopes her daughters, 6-year-old Honor and 3-year-old Haven, take over one day.

“I really am building The Honest Company for them,” she told ET’s Nischelle Turner. “I'm really hoping that … The Honest Company is some place that they would like to work later, when they're older.”

If The Honest Company isn’t for them, the mom of two has other big ideas for her little girls.

“If not, I hope they're inspired to be entrepreneurs,” she said. “And to really push the envelope on you know what they can do with their life and how they can make an impact.”

In just two years since its launch, the company has already managed to have a massive fan base and is estimated to be valued at nearly $1 billion. Alba, who recently stopped by Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, is incredibly devoted to the brand, as her company recently partnered with Safe Kids Coalition and Baby to Baby to educate new moms about infant safety, donate cribs, and provide eco-friendly and non-toxic products for their babies.

The partnership was a natural evolution. Each year thousands of babies die from suffocation and the Honest Company is helping educate families on how they can avoid them from happening in the future.

“I mean it's horrific, obviously. But it's preventable at the end of the day,” the 33-year-old said while getting a tour at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. “People need access to good, quality education and they need access to the answers. So, we're here at The Honest Company to do that.”
