Talk about a wonder woman. Jessica Alba plays pretty fierce characters on the big screen, but after the cameras stop rolling, she becomes a slightly different kind of superhero: mom to her daughters Honor (six years old) and Haven (three years old) and chief creative officer for the Honest Company, a line of ethical and super safe products for babies and new moms.

My style in three words:

Unfussy, playful, modern.

What being a mom means to me:

Cuddles, sleep deprivation, joy, heart-exploding love!

The best thing my kids could ever give me is:

The best thing my partner could ever give me is:

A foot rub.

No, but seriously, I’d love to wake up to:

Every mom needs a:

Lots more time.

I think the best all-purpose gift, suitable for any wonder woman, is:

The Honest bath time gift setit’s the only time you can be alone and relax!
