Jessica Alba shares her tips for a successful marriage

Move over Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP - Jessica Alba is here to give us advice on how we should all run our lives.

The actress and mother of two has turned relationship guru with a new iVillage blog that extols the virtues of making time for your partner and the importance of making small gestures to keep the romance alive.

“It's hard to imagine what life is going to be like after your first baby, not to mention your second! Diapers are a certainty. Sleepless nights, coffee, and concealer (lots of it) are probably guaranteed too. Having time to see a movie or enjoy a glass of wine by yourself - let alone with your husband - before your kids head off to college? I know - it feels like an impossibility or a far-off dream,” Jessica writes.

“Cash and I have found that maintaining a family schedule is the key to making time for each other,” the actress sagely advises. “Whether we're settling into the couch to watch bad Reality television or getting a babysitter so we can enjoy a date night out, we always know we have dedicated time after the girls are asleep to catch up, discuss what's on our minds, and simply just be with each other - no cell phones or e-mail allowed!”

The Sin City star then reveals that her sex life isn’t quite as exiting as it was before her kids Honor, thee, and Haven, eight-months, came along.

“Making time for our relationship in our daily routine - even though it's surprisingly predictable and may not seem as spicy as our spontaneous pre-kiddo days - really helps keep the romance alive.

“I don't think romance is always about swinging from chandeliers (although it's nice from time to time). It's really about the small gestures.”

We hope you’ve all taken notes…
