JESSICA Alba can't wait to meet her new baby.
The 30-year-old actress - who has three-year-old daughter Honor with husband Cash Warren - is due to give birth in the coming weeks and is very excited to meet the child because she has already bonded with the tot.
She said: "The idea of loving someone as much as I love Honor is something I haven't wrapped my head around yet. But I know I will and I can't wait. As a mother carrying a baby we get to bond while the baby is growing - reaching each milestone, feeling hiccups, kicks, rolling around. It's the blessing I think we get for all the round-ligament pain, sciatic pain and frequent trips to the bathroom.
"I'm signed up at three mommy sites that update me daily and weekly on the baby's development, which is probably a bit much. But it's a nice break from the day to check in with the baby, because, like everything else in life these days, time flies."
The Spy Kids 4 actress is looking forward to seeing how Honor reacts to her sibling and believes her children will be as close as she and her brother were growing up.
She wrote on her blog for website iVillage: "I'm excited, nervous and ready. I've seen my friends who have multiple children, and seeing siblings love on each other is just the sweetest thing ever. Although I fought with my little brother a lot growing up, we were best friends, and I'd take vengeance on anyone who hurt him - especially his feelings."
