Nowadays, celebrity pregnancies aren’t always revealed through simple press statements. Today’s stars are frequently using social media as a method of sharing their news, in fact – and they’re doing so in all kinds of inventive and heart-warming ways. And that’s precisely the route that Jessica Alba took when she revealed some exciting information about the latest addition to her family.
Born in Pomona, California, in 1981, Alba experienced a difficult childhood beset by illness, constant relocations and OCD. She still managed to pursue an acting career while growing up, however, appearing in the likes of Camp Nowhere, The Secret World of Alex Mack and Flipper. Then, after graduating from high school, she honed her craft further by studying at New York’s Atlantic Theater Company.
And Alba’s big break arrived in 1999 when she was cast as a mean girl in rom-com Never Been Kissed. In 2000, meanwhile, she made even more of a name for herself by starring as Max Guevara in Dark Angel. Alba would bag a Golden Globe nomination for her performance as the genetically engineered soldier.
