ACTRESS JESSICA ALBA EXPALINS BROWN BABY COMMENT
JA:”I’m excited for my baby to be brown. I just have to believe the dark gene is going to survive. Cash and I are like, please!”
In a recent interview with USAWeekend.com,Jessica explains what she meant by the “brown baby” comment:
UW:You said you can’t wait to meet your brown baby. What do you mean?
JA:I mean my dad is dark-skinned [Mexican], Cash’s daddy is dark-skinned [African-American], and our moms are both white. So there’s a 50-50 chance of our kid coming out dark or light. It would be nice if the daddies can see themselves in our baby.
UW:Do you think, especially after this presidential election, that we won’t be so obsessed with skin color as a nation?
I think my generation is the last generation that sees color. In this next generation coming up, everybody is mixed. And I think with people like Jennifer Lopez and Halle Berry being out there opening movies and having clothing lines and pushing the idea of ideal beauty, [the ideal isn't] Christie Brinkley anymore. You don’t have to look like Barbie.
