Warren continued in his post, “On your first day of life, I promise to love you, to cherish you, and to provide you with a sandbox full of dreams to explore. Welcome to the family my sweet baby Hayes! 12/31/2017.”
“@cash_warren and I are officially going to be outnumbered #babyonboard #herewegoagain 👶🏼🤰🏽#blessed🙏,” she captioned the post.
In late October, the actress and Honest Company co-founder revealed in another cute clip with her daughters that the baby on the way was a boy, showing the girls pulling on a string to release blue confetti from a suspended box.
Alba has been open about the excitement she and Warren, 38, feel about adding a little boy to their family. During a late-October visit to by The Rachael Ray Show, the Dark Angel alum joked she was looking forward to having “someone to love me more.”
“When [Cash] comes home, [Haven and Honor are] like, ‘Daddy!’ It’s like a party,” she explained. “When I come home, they’re like, ‘Oh, hey Mom.’ I’m like, ‘I do everything for you! I cook, I do all the things!’ ”
Earlier that month, the star said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that the family was “super stoked” and that having a son was “gonna be a whole situation.”

In early November, Alba debuted a new line of Honest Company seasonal diaper prints for winter, saying in the accompanying reveal video, “What’s so exciting about this winter diaper reveal is that this will be the diaper [print] that the little baby in my tummy will be wearing.”
And although the new baby’s sex is a nice bonus, what Alba was most looking forward to about caring for an infant one more time has everything to do with those first moments of new motherhood.
“Cuddling!” she told PEOPLE in August of her most-anticipated activity once her newborn arrived. “Cuddling babies are the best.”
