Jessica Alba is finding her second pregnancy "harder" than her first.

The 'Little Fockers' actress - who is currently expecting her second child with husband Cash Warren - explained her two-year-old daughter Honor Marie is constantly demanding to be picked up, which is taking its toll on her body.

She said: "It's a little harder on the body. My daughter still wants to be picked up and ever since my belly popped she's really on me."

Jessica also revealed hypnobirthing - a process which involves undergoing hypnosis during childbirth - helped her during her first labour, as she initially "freaked out".

She added to People magazine: "I highly recommend it. It just makes you chill. I was freaked my first time going into labour, like, 'What if I panic? What if I just freak out and am not prepared for it?' This just prepares you."

The 30-year-old screen beauty recently admitted becoming a mother had stopped her from being "selfish".

Jessica said: "My daughter has put everything in perspective for me. You stop being selfish and driven in such a narrow personal sense, and you want to build a life for yourself and your family."
