    Until it goes public, we will not know her stake is in the company since it has not been disclosed. I'm sure Howie would like to know that along with her husband's cock size.

    Jessica Alba’s Startup, Honest, Valued at $1.7 Billion
    The baby-products retailer co-founded by the movie star has raised $100 million in a new round of funding

    Honest Co., the baby-products retailer co-founded by movie star Jessica Alba, has raised $100 million in a new round of funding, valuing it at about $1.7 billion, according to a person familiar with the matter.

    The funding boosts the e-commerce startup’s value by more than 50% since it last raised funds a year ago.

    A company spokeswoman declined to comment. Reuters reported last week that Honest was seeking new funds at a valuation up to $2 billion.

    Ms. Alba co-founded the site in 2011 to sell nontoxic products such as diapers and toothpaste to consumers worried about the materials used in everyday household items. The Honest brand has become popular with parents who are willing to pay a premium to allay fears of exposing their infants to unnecessary chemicals.

    Honest said earlier this year its sales grew to $170 million in 2014, up from $60 million in 2013. It sells more than 75% of its products through the Web. It is building up its store-distribution business, with items available in more than 2,500 locations, including Target Corp. stores.

    The investors participating in Honest’s new funding round couldn’t be determined. Honest had previously raised $122 million from investors including General Catalyst Partners, Institutional Venture Partners, Lightspeed Venture Partners and Wellington Management.

    The higher valuation raises the stakes for an eventual initial public offering. Co-founder and Chief Executive Brian Lee told The Wall Street Journal last year that the company was “starting to think and act like a public company” in preparation for an IPO.

    Saying Alba owns that company is like saying Jlo owns the Dolphins.

    That's why I'm waiting for the IPO. It would be funny if its similar to Jay-Zs ownership stake in the Brooklyn Nets, which was 1/15 of 1%

    I am sure she only owns a small stake, but I am sure she owns far more than JLo has of the Dolphins and probably stands to make millions when it goes public.

    Howard must be whacking off thinking about all of this, a plastic sexless chick who is a HUGE earner plus her pretty boy husband who stays at home all day spending her millions.

    Compared to the $1.7 billion that the press would lead you to believe she's entitled to a large portion of, yes it is.
