It’s easy to envy beautiful stars for their astounding paychecks and amazing figures, so once in a while it’s refreshing to know not everything in life comes easily: Jessica Alba, who’s featured on the cover of the new issue of Elle, admits that regaining her pre-baby figure so quickly after having Honor was not a fun experience.


"I did it for the Campari job," she confesses in the interview. "[The workouts] were horrible. I cried. And I haven’t worked out since."




Working out wasn’t the only thing helping her regain her hot bod, as Jessica admits she wore a girdle to coax her tummy back into flatness.


"Eight weeks after my girlfriend had her baby, you could see her six-pack. She told me to put an elastic band around my waist – any kind of band or girdle works," Jessica shares. "I didn’t recover as fast as she did. I don’t have a six-pack – that’s just not my body at all."

Despite all the hard work that went into her campaign to get back into shape, Honor’s birth itself wasn’t so painful, says the brunette beauty, and holding her new daughter more than made up for any discomfort.


"That moment when they put the baby on your chest – that’s deep," she confesses. "It’s a deep experience."
