bodies.”

The couple met on the set of 2005’s Fantastic Four, according to PEOPLE. Alba played Sue Storm in the superhero flick, while Warren worked as a director’s assistant.

“I just knew when I met him that I was going to know him forever,” Alba admitted to InStyle in 2013. “It was weird; he instantly felt like family. It was so easy. I’d never felt like that with anyone.

I was usually pretty self-conscious, minding my p’s and q’s, very aware of every time my fork hit the plate when I was having dinner on a date. With him, there was none of that. We got each other. We’re kindred spirits.”

Per PEOPLE, the pair began dating in the fall of 2004. Alba also admitted to Cosmopolitan in 2005 that they didn’t launch into a romantic relationship right away because “I met him when I was dating someone else, so it started off as a friendship.”

 

When did Jessica Alba and Cash Warren get engaged?

Alba and Warren’s engagement was confirmed in December 2007. Earlier that month, it was announced that the couple was expecting their first child together.

When did Jessica Alba and Cash Warren get married?

The two secretly tied the knot at a Beverly Hills courthouse in May 2008. In a sweet tribute to mark their anniversary in 2019, Warren reflected on their “laughably awkward” wedding day.

“We were laying in bed having one of those amazing lazy mornings where we’d do nothing. You were 9 months pregnant with Honor and we were so excited to meet her in the coming weeks.

Not sure who thought of it first but the decision we made that day would forever change the course of our lives. We hopped up, got dressed and drove straight to the courthouse.

Prior to that day, neither of us thought marriage was important…it felt outdated and we weren’t going to fall for an antiquated social construction,” Warren penned.

“But something changed in us that morning. It wasn’t the dream wedding you deserved… Standing under an arch of dusty plastic flowers in the courthouse chapel, we held hands and said I Do. No friends or family in attendance… just you, me and the courthouse employee who served as our witness,” Warren continued.

“We walked out holding hands, giggling with excitement and a touch of nervousness. I remember opening the car door for you and as you climbed in, calling you Mrs. Warren for the first time.”

 

How many kids does Jessica Alba have?

Alba and Warren welcomed their first child, daughter Honor, in 2008, followed by daughter Haven in 2011 and son Hayes in 2017.

Since becoming a dad, Warren has been outspoken about how men also have challenges when it comes to balancing fatherhood and work. In 2015, he told Mom.com, “For me, it’s about quality time, and when I’m with my kids, I’m with them, and I’m not distracted by emails or phone calls. I’m really attentive and there with my kids. When I’m at work, I’m working. I try to separate as much as humanly possible, so that way it doesn’t all blend into the same time. Kids need your undivided attention, and they don’t understand why you need to go to work. They don’t get that, so it’s about making sure that they feel that love and support.”

Warren also revealed to Us Weekly in 2018 that he and Alba “trade off ‘good cop, bad cop.’” He said, “I think that we both have pretty high standards and we expect a lot out of our kids and we’re both pretty disciplined in that approach to making sure that they are good kids that are gonna grow up to be good people.”

 

What has Jessica Alba said about her marriage to Cash Warren?

And he’s so good with the kids. We’re really happy.”

Back in 2014, Alba shared with Parade.com some of her secrets to a happy marriage. “I think we have an incredible amount of respect for each other and we value each other’s opinion and time, and I feel like we’re in it together, we’re not petty with each other, and we communicate a lot,” she revealed. But the most critical ingredient for wedded bliss? Don’t forget date nights! “I think you have to,” she said about carving out one-on-one time. “I think that’s essential.”
