The "Fantastic Four" star said during the Keep A Child Alive 5th Annual Black Ball that every aspect of her daughter, Honor Marie, has been amazing for her and husband, Cash Warren, People magazine reported Friday.
"Everything is cute, everything is fun," Alba said at Thursday's event, "including the explosive diarrhea -- the best ever."
The actress said having a child brings family and friends together, and "makes every decision that you make that much more important."
Alba told People she and Warren are eagerly anticipating Honor Marie's first intentionally voiced word.
"I think she accidentally says 'Mama' when she's crying," Alba said. "But I don't know if it is on purpose yet."
