Jessica Alba made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman at the Ed Sullivan Theater in NYC on Monday to talk about her new film Machete. But instead the conversation turned to her daughter Honor Marie and how she was “overfed” as a baby. “She weighed just as much at six months as she does now,” Jessica confessed to David Letterman. “She was really chubby.”
Jessica revealed to David that Honor Marie really doesn’t disturb her beauty sleep.
“When she was like six months old, I would overfeed her,” Jessica says.”So, when [kids are] really full, they don’t wake up hungry.”
“That sounds abusive!” Jessica jokes but adds, “She was really chubby. She weighed just as much at six months as she does now.”
But now, Honor is causing Jessica a little more trouble.
“She’s walking and talking, she has lots of opinions,” she explains. “She talks about everything she wants and needs. She said she wants coffee in the morning.”
But the mom has a handle on little Honor Marie — she gives her water in a coffee cup!
“I’m very strict with her. When it’s time for her to eat, whether she’s hollering or whatever, it’s time to eat,” she said. “She gets a time-out if she cries for no reason. So then she stops because she doesn’t want a time-out.”
“Sometimes she asks me to go to time-out. If she does something bad she’ll say, ‘Honor time-out?’ and I’ll say, ‘Yeah, you’re getting a time-out’.”
