New mom Jessica Alba
was snapped stepping out for the first time since giving birth to daughter
Haven two weeks ago – although circumstances were less than ideal.
"Flood -sick toddler -newborn -too many ppl n animals living in 3 bedroom =another day in the Warren household," the actress, 30, Tweeted Friday
as she brought 3-year-old Honor to the doctor's office.
Still, Alba looked calm and collected in a white maxi dress topped with a denim shirt and cross-body bag. Though she did continue with her workouts
while pregnant, the actress also gives a lot of credit to Grandma.
"My grandmother was amazing – would go home in the clothes that she wore before she got pregnant with all five of her kids," Alba told PEOPLE
with a laugh. "It's definitely good genetics."
