Jessica Alba's Bad Parenting Habit

Jessica Alba Has a "Terrible" Parenting Habit That Will Make You LOL So Hard, You'll Pick It Up, Too

Jessica Alba is on top of the world right now! She's getting back into acting in L.A.'s Finest, a Bad Boys spinoff with Gabrielle Union, while still doing work with the company she cofounded, The Honest Company. On top of all of that, Jessica's a mom of three: honour, 9, Haven, 6, and Hayes, 5 months. For InStyle's July cover interview, the 37-year-old mogul revealed a parenting habit that she's developed as her girls have gotten a bit older.

"I have this terrible habit: whenever my kids ask me to find something, they're like, 'Mom, where's my . . .' you know, backpack, toothbrush, whatever. And I just say, 'Up your butt,' and that's probably bad parenting. But they got to a certain age where I'm like, 'That's where it is: it's up your butt.'"

After being in the spotlight for over 20 years and having three kids, Jessica also revealed she's really enjoying this chapter of her life. "That's something I really appreciate now that I'm getting older. I give so little f*cks . . . so little. All that matters is to be happy and live your life."
