"The nursery isn't ready. It's not even close, but I'm accumulating things," she told Us Weekly at Wednesday's Lucky magazine/ThisNext.com event in Pacific Palisades, Calif. "In the beginning the baby stays with me in the room, so you don't need the nursery ready so soon. We're remodeling our house, so it's going to take a few months. I'm really taking my time."

Married to Warren since 2008, the actress said she's planning to document the nursery decorating progress in a new blog. "I like to buy like old furniture and new furniture and refurbish it," she explained. "I did that with Honor, so it'd be nice to show it off how I did it."

Alba (who wore a Dolce & Gabbana maxi dress) added that her 3-year-old daughter is looking forward to becoming a big sister. "She's as excited as a kid can be, even though she doesn't really know what it means just yet," the Spy Kids 4 actress told Us. "Honor's funny. She has her own personality."
