Jessica Alba loves her stretch marks and cellulite.

The ‘Fantastic Four’ actress has learned to love her imperfections because they remind her of the joy she experienced when pregnant with her daughter Honor Marie, now 18 months old.

She said: “Even though some might consider them a flaw, I’ve learned to love my stretch marks. Pregnancy was the most incredible experience I’ve ever had. So I’ll take the stretch marks. I’ll take the sagging boobs. I’ll take the cellulite I can never get rid of. If you walk around with your head held high and you’re happy and positive, then all that other stuff is irrelevant. Confidence is number one.”

The 28-year-old beauty - who is married to film producer Cash Warren - also revealed she hopes to have more children and dreams of settling down with her family in the South of France.

She explained to Self magazine: “My mother-in-law has lived there for more than 20 years, and she has a beautiful set-up. I want to be able to allow Honor and my other kids, who I hope to be blessed with in the future, to maintain their innocence for as long as possible. There is so much time to be an adult.”

Jessica loves every aspect of motherhood and says having Honor has helped her to stop being so critical of herself.

She added: “Honor is the best cure for stress. When I spend time with her, I get instant perspective. I can be hard on myself if I don’t do everything perfectly. But now that I have her, there’s no time for that. I want to teach her that you can learn from your mistakes, and if you keep moving and stay positive and loving, everything will work out.”
