Jessica Alba is "taking her time" preparing for her new baby.

The 30-year-old actress - who has three-year-old daughter Honor with husband Cash Warren - is due to give birth to her second child in the coming weeks but is in no hurry to get their nursery complete as she is in the process of renovating her house

She said: "The nursery isn't ready. It's not even close, but I'm accumulating things. In the beginning the baby stays with me in the room, so you don't need the nursery ready so soon. We're remodelling our house, so it's going to take a few months. I'm really taking my time."

While the 'Little Fockers' star is taking a relaxed approach to her second child, Honor is very excited about the new arrival and can't wait to be a big sister.

Jessica explained: "She's as excited as a kid can be, even though she doesn't really know what it means just yet. Honor's funny. She has her own personality."

In her spare time, Jessica loves refurbishing old furniture and is planning to set up a blog to document The Changes she is making to her home.

She told Us Weekly magazine: "I like to buy like old furniture and new furniture and refurbish it. I did that With Honor, so it'd be nice to show it off how I did it."
