Gabrielle Union's Piece of Heaven at Home Is the Bathroom As Parenting Is a Struggle During Lockdown

Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba discuss parenting and TikTok with E! News as they find it a little tough to grasp it all during the current pandemic lockdown.

You hear strange things the state of worldwide lockdown has caused on people's relationships and family. For actors Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, it hasn't been the easiest of jobs parenting their respective kids. In an online interview with E! News host Lilliana Vazquez, the two talked about how the kids have never allowed them a moment of peace at home, and Alba's kids even got her on TikTok.

"With your kids around, what is the one place in your home that you find solitude and a sliver of quiet?" the host asked the pair. And Alba was quick to react, "Not, don't. ... I can't escape them. They find me in bathrooms, in bathtubs, in corners, I can't hide from them."

However, for Union, she gets it lucky that her kids leave her alone when she's in the bathroom. "For me, it's the bathroom," the 47-year-old explained. "Thank god they respect the toilet. I go in there, I claim gastrointestinal issues. No one will ask follow-up questions about that. And then I milk it, sometimes for 20, 30, 45 minutes."

"I can just play words with friends," she continued. "I can just mindlessly scroll social media. But it just gives me a minute. I can go in the bathroom, lock the door and sit down."

Then, the host discusses Alba's foray into TikTok. She now has almost 5 million followers on the video-syncing platform, and her kids were the ones who got her into it. But as is obvious, they would not approve of her on the platform. "I'm like, 'What! Why would you allow me to be cringy?'" Alba said, laughing.

There also arose a matter of how Union's 18-month-old daughter Kaavia failed the #FruitSnackChallenge, despite being an eater. "No, I know my child," she answered to Vazquez's question. "It was more of, how long could she wait? She loves to eat. And she eats really anything. But she'd never had a fruit snack, so we had to come up with a different snack and she loves her Bitsy's."

"I was just curious, would she let me get around the corner?" Union continued till the end of the chat. "Would it be as soon as I walked away? It was more surprising, like her facial reactions. She ate, she grabbed a fistful and then turned around. When I came back in the frame, she was like, 'Maybe you ate the Bitsy!' She's just pure comedy."
