Jessica Alba reunited with Drew Barrymore to talk about parenting during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The actress opened up about the pressures of family life and got candid as she revealed she needs a break from her husband, Cash Warren, and their three children. She appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show via video call and revealed, “Real talk. I told everyone in the family that I need a break from them.”
The actress shared that she and Kelly are actually going to go away for a week. She also said she does not know what they are getting themselves into but she cannot be around her family.
Jessica explained, “I’ve had it, I’ve had enough. And they all come down on me. Every time they ask me, ‘Mom can I download this app? Mom, can I get on the Facetime? Mom, I’m hungry. Is this outfit okay? Can you help me?'”
The founder of the Honest Company also added that she is trying to help get her husband to fulfill the kids’ demands. However, she revealed that her husband would often disappear in his man cave.
The actress said she starts nagging and then her kids tell her that her tone is mean. She further shared, And then Cash is like, ‘I guess I’m just going to go back into my main room,’ And I’m like, ‘What else is new?’ Just disappearing for me to deal with everything.”
Jessica also shared the struggle she has with the kid’s bedtime. She tells Drew to imagine if she has her 9-year-old and she does not want to go to bed, ao they keep fighting every night. The actress said kids have to go to bed and they shouldn’t even be talking about that.
Jessica And Drew Reminisce Never Been Kissed
The Good Luck Chuck actress explained, “Then she goes, “Well you make dinner so late every time you make dinner.” Here’s the thing, ‘I’m going to make dinner late. You’re going to eat late. Then you’re going to get your butt to bed right after that and that’s just the way it’s going to be. I don’t know what to say, I’m not perfect. You’re going to eat dinner late.'”
Jessica married Cash, a film producer in 2008. The couple lives in Los Angeles with their three children, Honor, 12, Haven, nine, and Hayes, two.
