“Little Fockers” actress Jessica Alba welcomed her second child into the world Saturday, when she gave birth to another little girl.

“Cash and I are so excited to announce the birth of our daughter, Haven Garner Warren,” the 30-year-old wrote on Facebook Sunday. “She was born on Saturday, weighed 7lbs, and was 19 inches long. Healthy and happy!”

The “Spy Kids 4” star, who tied the knot with Cash Warren in 2008, also has a 3-year-old daughter named Honor.

Well into pregnancy #2, Alba got political and pushed the nation’s leading politicians to pass the Safe Chemicals Act. At the beginning of summer, the proud mother traveled to Washington for Senator Frank R. Lautenberg’s press conference in support of the measure. During a speech on Capitol Hill, Alba said she’d begun to worry about safe chemicals when she first had a child. (Jessica Alba comes to D.C. to advocate for Safe Chemicals Act)

“Four years ago I became pregnant for the first time, and as I’m sure any mother would agree, it immediately changes the way you look at things,” Alba said on what inspired her to become active on this issue. “[You] avoid anything that can be harmful to your child, particularly pesticides, alcohol, tobacco, the stuff that we’re all aware of…I was shocked to learn that it is perfectly legal to have known toxic chemicals in consumer products on our shelves.”

Last week, Alba called on presidential candidates to endorse the reform.

“Moms around the country from all walks of life have been leading the charge for common sense limits on toxic chemicals,” Alba said in a press release. “I’m proud to join them today in asking Congress to pass the Safe Chemicals Act. I also think its time for the candidates for President to say where they stand on this critical issue.”
