Jessica Alba quietly slowed her acting career following the birth of her daughter Honor in 2008. She was at the height of her career when she decided to take a step back but she’s managed to work consistently over the years regardless.

She currently co-owns the Honest Company but she’s also taken on roles here and there over the years.

According to Variety, the wealthy actress will soon be returning to the small screen with Netflix’s adaptation of “Confessions on the 7:45,” which the streaming service is developing.

The show will be based on the Lisa Unger book that shares the same title that you can buy on Amazon. The so-called psychological thriller follows a working mom (Alba) who meets a stranger on a train as she’s commuting home, which turns her life upside down.

As the chaos in her life ensues, betrayals reveal themselves. It leaves her questioning if we don’t really know the people closest to us.

In addition to acting in the show, Alba will also executive produce the series. Charise Castro Smith will write the series and serve as showrunner and executive producer. Michael Rotenberg and Oly Obst will also work on the series as executive producers.

Alba’s most recent work includes a show called L.A.’s Finest, a spinoff of the Bad Boys film franchise. She also starred in a short film called Dubai Presents: A Five Star Mission and a movie called Trigger Warning is currently in post-production.

So it looks like she’s not going anywhere anytime soon, and hopefully, that means we’ll see her in more projects that are coming up.

As the schedule for the Sin City star picks up, it makes sense that she’d want to have a night out on the town with her husband.

The Fantastic Four actress attended the Vanity Fair Oscar party looking stylish as ever. She dazzled in a dark blue, diamond-embellished stitched Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2022 tulle midi dress.

It’s giving princess ball gown meets edgy goth girl, with the corset and hoop skirt paired with the sparkly fabric and almost netting like material, and I’m loving it! The edgier dress was just the right amount of risk for her to take.

She paired the look with some stunning Jimmy Choo Rosie satin platform sandals and their Vivienne clutch. She also wore Norman Silverman earrings and a 10-carat oval platinum diamond ring.

Her hair was wavy and her makeup looked beautiful, it wasn’t too dramatic but it also wasn’t too simple. It was just right for the occasion!

Whether she’s lighting up the small screen or lighting up cameras on the red carpet, it’s always good to see Jessica Alba doing well. With her talent and grace, I’m sure it won’t be the last we see of her.

It’s not clear when “Confessions on the 7:45” will start filming or if there’s a planned release date just yet.

Time will tell when we can see the actress grace our televisions again. But hopefully, it won’t be too long before we see her on the red carpet again!

It can’t be easy being Jessica Alba. In addition to running a billion-dollar enterprise and making public appearances, the actress still finds time to be a regular mom to her two daughters, Honor and Haven.

In April 2016, Jessica was spotted sharing a few laughs with her children at a park in Beverly Hills. Her husband, Cash Warren, was seemingly unable to join his adorable family.

The mom-of-two was spotted rocking a striped tee and jeans ensemble underneath a gray Rachel Zoe jacket.

Jessica styled her afternoon-at-the-park outfit with a pair of sunglasses, a small sling bag by Christopher Kane, and a pair of “Kingvel” velcro sneakers by Kenneth Cole.

In an interview earlier the same month with Us Weekly, Jessica couldn’t help but gush over her two daughters.

She talked about what it was like to entertain them (hint: they’re easily bored), and chatted about music. Honor and Haven have different favorite songs but share a radio. Must be tough!
