“Bubble butts, like my dad and I have, run in my family!” Jessica Alba, 31, reveals to the editors in the September issue of Self magazine. ”To tone up, I do jump lunges and squat jumps. They make me want to vomit, but they’re the best for getting my legs in shape.”

In between her workouts and taking care of her two daughters (Honor, 4, and Haven, 1), the busy actress has also found the time to start The Honest Company, which sells eco-friendly and non-toxic baby products. She said she decided to start the company after a scary incident with her daughter.

“I found my daughter Honor sitting in her crib, eating these tiny beads from the inside of her diaper. They were all over her face. It was a moment of terror,” she told the magazine.

She said that working on her company is a huge passion of hers. “It’s awesome — it really does feel like this is my third baby. It’s a deep passion of mine and I spend all my time at the office. I think it’s a nice balance to Hollywood because it’s so free and it’s so creative and so much of what you do is in someone else’s hands, essentially and this is something that I could actually control and I could see something from the beginning to the end and there’s something really wonderful and fulfilling about that. Especially when it was so hard to get it going for so long.”
