Jessica Alba and her billion-dollar baby

June 3rd, 2015 by

The actress-turned-business-magnate tries on a new role - member of Forbes' annual list of America's Richest Self-Made Women


Oh, baby! Jessica Alba just made the cover of Forbes magazine as the publication debuted its annual list of America's Richest Self-Made Women. According to The Daily Mail, her newfound and newly renowned wealth comes largely due to her part in co-founding The Honest Company, inspired by her own 2008 pregnancy.

An honest woman's living

Since launching in 2012 as a subscription service delivering diaper and baby supplies to mothers around the globe for around $80 a month, the company has grown into a healthy, billion-dollar baby with a $1 billion valuation. And with an estimated 15 to 20 percent stake in the company, Miss Alba is now worth a plump $200 million - making her one rich mama. 

Still, with Judge Judy and Beyonce tying for the 49th spot of the top 50 richest self-made women in America, Jessica Alba may have to wait until next year to make it into the club. 

We have a feeling she's not crying about it.
