“My son and I take baths together, and when he’s not with me, I take a bath and that really feels nourishing and comforting,” she said of passing the time at home amid the pandemic. He also enjoys “bouncing on the mini trampoline, dancing or jump roping.”
Alicia welcomed Bear in 2011 with her then-husband, Christopher Jarecki.
In the same interview, she discussed nourishing herself: “I always bring everything back to diet. When I don’t eat well, I don’t feel well, and then my moods go all over the place.”
In an earlier interview with Us Weekly, she opened up about raising Bear on a vegan diet, saying he has “more energy” than most kids.
“I always laugh, like, ‘Oh, my poor vegan baby, he’s so weak,’ because he’s jumping all over the place and he’s so wild. But there’s a calmness to him and a centeredness. He’s not off the charts,” she explained.
She went on to reveal she doesn’t “yell or scream or discipline him,” saying “All I have to do is say, ‘Oh, Bear, no thank you,’ and he goes, ‘OK, mom.’ He’s got it. We just can talk like that because he’s not feeling crazy. When they feel bad, when they eat unhealthy food and they don’t feel good, then they don’t act good. Same as us.”
She was recently seen going on a socially distanced walk with this fellow star.

I’ve loved every moment of our trip together! It was interesting being a single mom and the feelings that come up. 3 weeks alone with my boy, the world and a new adventure! There is so much joy and so much love we share. Bear is the best travel companion anyone could ask for, except I could use more sleep… Waking up at 6am every morning is a tad rough 😂 But I just love being this boys mom. He is incredible and I’m so lucky! We trust each other, respect each other, we never speak unkindly to each other. I love how comfy he is in the world with new people. I think our travels over the years have helped make him open, confident and curious! But he is like that anyway, traveling just enhances it and reveals it more I suppose. I love when Bear gets me to do things that I might not usually do. It’s hard to explain, but I’m way more willing to jump into things because I want to do it for him! Like getting on scooters the whole trip because that’s what he wanted to do. Or jumping into freezing cold waterfalls in Hawaii… I trust him and follow and then it’s great. Let’s me be a kid again! I’m so lucky I was able to take the time and have the opportunity to go on this adventure. When @opencircles @unclerush asked me to speak, it was a no brainer as I’ve always wanted to go to Bali! I was reminded to stay in my heart and dance more! To trust the universe and it’s plan for me. It’s hard, but it’s the only thing you can do. Our journey to bali was 34 hrs door to door. We were happy beavers the whole way… just til the last 1.5 hours drive from airport 😉 On our way back to LA we stopped in #Singapore to give a talk on sustainability, climate change and health. There are so many people doing great things there. I met so many smart, sophisticated, interesting people. It was also really cool to see that families stay together for a lifetime there and take care of each other through the generations. What a special experience from start to finish, I look forward to returning!
