“They think I’m the cringey mom,” Jessica shared during an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show. “I’m the definition of cringey. They actually said that I should use the hashtag ‘cringeymom.’ And I’m like, ‘That’s so mean!’ I’m like, ‘There’s so many more cringey moms than me guys!'”
Even Jessica Alba’s Kids Get Embarrassed By Their Mom
The mama of three recalled when her children first discovered that she is a celebrity.
“They didn’t know, you know, for the first beginning of their life, they didn’t know that I was an actress and I remember when Honor was in first grade and she was mortified,” Jessica recalled. “She came home and she was like, ‘Why didn’t you tell me?’ And I was like ‘What?’ Cause she knew I was working at the Honest Company, that’s how they knew me. And she was like, ‘You never told me you were going to be in grocery stores and Target.'”
“A friend brought a magazine to school and put Honor—she felt put on blast. And Honor was like, ‘What is going on? Why are you on this magazine? What is happening here?’ So then I had to break it to her. I was an actress and sometimes I do the magazines. And she was just like—she just felt so betrayed.”
We’re guessing, one day, Jessica Alba’s kiddos will realize that their mom’s job is actually really cool.
