may love being pregnant
, but not everyone in Hollywood is similarly gushing.
"I never felt less sexy," Jessica Alba
says of her own pregnancy. "I mean, I wouldn't have changed it for the world ... but I wanted to get rid of all the weight."
The actress, who gave birth
to her daughter, Honor Marie, last month, opened up about motherhood – and her recent wedding
to Cash Warren – in the August U.K. edition of Cosmopolitan
"I never thought I'd find a man before 30, let alone marry him and have his baby," she told the magazine. "I always used to meet the wrong guys – the ones who wanted to hang out for a week and see how far they could get. If you didn't have sex in the first few days, you were either frigid or a lesbian. So I held out – and, boy, am I glad I did!"
As for her no-frills wedding at the Beverly Hills courthouse, Alba insisted the hush-hush ceremony was "very romantic." And she had no desire for an over-the-top, celebrity-studded ceremony.
"We're not a typical Hollywood couple," she said. "I love that he's not an actor. I'm way too high maintenance to be in a relationship with an actor – they're all such divas!"
Warren has also been instrumental in keeping Alba grounded during her rapid transformation into wife and mother.
"Nothing was planned – the pregnancy or the wedding," she admitted. "But he took it in his stride and convinced me we'd conquer all!"
