Jessica Alba is such a gorgeous pregnant woman, and she reminded us of that at the red carpet premiere for the fourth installment of Robert Rodriguez's Spy Kids franchise.

Some may already have a little one (like Alba) or might have to keep working until the last possible second, but either way, its good to see healthy and happy pregnant ladies out there!
