Jessica Alba and Jennifer Garner were out and about with their daughters this weekend -- the first weekend of winter break!
Now that the kids are out of school, these Hollywood moms will be spending more time with their girls -- finishing up their Christmas shopping and spending time with extended family.
Of course Alba just gave birth to her second girl -- Haven -- while Garner's pregnant with her third child. She's set for a special delivery in January or February.
The actress graces the cover of InStyle magazine's January issue and in her interview with the mag, she offers the secret to her 7-year marriage to Ben Affleck: "We both know we couldn't do what we do without each other." And she says Ben's a dreamer, "Ben always says, 'If you love it, we can make it happen.'"
Meanwhile, Jessica Alba is featured on the cover of InStyle Australia for January, wearing a sexy Prada swimsuit and showing off her post-baby body.
Alba tells the mag motherhood changed her for the better: "I really came into myself as a person. Before, I was always working for my identity. And then you take the focus off of yourself. I was probably-definitely-a bit of a narcissist. When you are young and an actor and driven, itâ€™s a bizarre state of mind to be in at times. I was so focused on things that didnâ€™t matter at the end of the day. Now I have what I do for a living in perspective. Working was everything to me, my entire identity, and once I got to step away from it, everything changed."
Motherhood certainly suits both these women!
Were you a bigger fan of Jess and Jen before they became moms or after?
