Jessica Alba says her daughter Honor Marie is so stubborn, the only way to get her to do something is by forbidding it
Jessica Alba tells her daughter not to eat vegetables.
The 'Valentine's Day' actress says Honor Marie - her 19-month-old child with husband Cash Warren - is so stubborn the only way she can get her to tuck in at mealtimes is by forbidding her from doing so.
Jessica explained: "She likes to do everything her way. She loves saying 'no,' it's her favourite word.
"Now, she won't eat unless I tell her not to eat. I have to use reverse psychology. I'm like, 'Don't eat your vegetables!' And she looks at me and, in defiance, eats her broccoli."
Jessica, 28, decided to call her daughter Honor after a friend expressed a liking for the name if she ever had more children.
She explained on US TV show 'Live with Regis and Kelly': "I told my girlfriend that I was pregnant early on, and she was like, 'I'm not having any more kids but if I was going to have one, I would name her Honor.' It was just random and it stuck with us. We liked it."
Earlier this week, Jessica revealed Honor is a "bully" who wouldn't share her toys during a recent holiday.
She said: "We realised on a trip that my daughter is a bully. She would steal her girlfriend's toys and push her and pull her hair for a stroller or a baby doll or a purse."
