Jessica Alba on “Hysteria” Beyonce and Jay-Z Will Face Over First Baby Photos


By Daniel Gates



Asked about how Beyonce and Jay-Z should handle the first photos of baby Blue Ivy Carter, Jessica Alba said they’d of course make the “best decision” for their family – but did explain why she and husband Cash Warren opted to sell 2008 pictures of their own first child.

“We just wanted to control the experience,” Alba, now a mother of two girls, told CNN interviewer A.J. Hammer.

She explains, “We put the money that the picture made into a bank account for [daughter] Honor to do whatever she wants to with… We didn’t want it to be like a weird thing when we were walking out of the house for the first time.”

The nuisance of paparazzi definitely played a role.

“If there’s a price tag on your child, which is so bizarre, people will go to crazy lengths [to snap the first picture],” says Alba. “We wanted to avoid that hysteria.”
