Actress Jessica Alba, her husband Cash Warren and the couples two daughter Honor, 4, and Haven, nearly 1, were spotted enjoying a sunny day together at Cold Water Canyon Park in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Saturday (August 4).
According to Entertainment Weekly, Jessica is trying to teach her two daughters that being a princess isn’t just about a prince “coming in and sweeping you off your feet.”
Although Honor enjoys fairy tales, Jess is keen on thwarting the illusion of what life is really all about.
“[Honor] loves anything with a princess or a mermaid or a fairy,” Jess admits. “She has no discretion. And the princess books we have are all about princesses also helping people who are in need, who don’t have the things we have. I try to give her a spin on it so it’s not just about a prince coming in and sweeping you off your feet and that’s the best day of your life.”
“A princess’ job is to help with the children who don’t have clothes. Or to help clean up the planet. That’s something I talk to her about. Real princesses give back to the earth and they’re kind to animals and I try to tell her that’s what being a princess is.”
Jessica continues to say that popular culture is starting to make an impact on Honor’s life, joking that her daughter confused singer Nicki Minaj with an animated voice.
“I guess the most recent issue was that she saw Ice Age 4 the other day with her cousins and one of her cousins was like ‘Nicki Minaj!’ So all Honor talked about all day was that Nicki Minaj is a voice,” she laughs. “She was like, ‘Even though they’re animals, they’re really people who are inside of the animals helping them talk. And Nicki Minaj.’ I was like, ‘You don’t even know who Nicki Minaj is!’ She was messing up the name.”
