Alba: 'I Hope My Child Is A Nerd'

Mother-to-be JESSICA ALBA is hoping her first baby doesn't pursue a career in Hollywood - because she'd prefer her child to be a "nerd". The actress, who is currently in her second trimester with fiance Cash Warren's baby, wants the tot to be intelligent rather than cool - insisting "nerds" are more interesting people. She tells website, ''I want my kid to be a nerd. I want him to be really, really smart. I want them to be in the band or orchestra. No, that's a joke. "I keep telling my fiance, 'Our kid can't be cool. It has to be a nerd.' They're so much more dynamic." But the Good Luck Chuck star has promised to support the child if it decides to follow her into acting: "If your child wants to be an actor, though, you kind of want to support them in whatever they want to do. "But it's not something I'm going to be pushing my kid to do at all. I think it's important for your kids to find their own way and see what moves them."
