Alba’s post comes after Warren, 44, revealed that they once broke up over his jealousy issues prior to getting married and four years into their relationship.

"When we first started dating I was really jealous of other guys and the attention she was getting from other guys. It just wasn’t making me feel good," he said on HeartPodcast's Whine Down with Jana Kramer podcast.

"I was always a pretty confident person in my own [life], walking my own path and really happy there, and next thing you know I’m looking up and feeling jealous all the time," he continued. "I was like, ‘I hate feeling like this. It doesn’t make me feel good, and I know it doesn’t make you feel good.’ And we broke up. It was the jealousy.

"If anything, when we got together I was like, ‘Don’t make sacrifices. Pursue your passions, pursue your careers, don’t make sacrifices because you feel bad for leaving the kids for this week or that week,' " he continued. "Eventually they’ll grow up and they’ll forget the fact that you were gone for these three days or these five days."

Calling himself Alba's "biggest cheerleader," he added: "I’ve tried to be a good teammate in that regard. I’m not interested in the spotlight. I’m not a star, I’m not a celeb, I’m not an actor, I’ve never tried to be an actor. I high-five her, let her do her thing, and I’ve gotten more comfortable with it over the years.”
