Tia Mowry-Hardrict is a proud mother of 11-month-old son Cree, and author of Oh Baby! Pregnancy Tales and Advice from One Hot Mamma to Another. The actress recently visited Us Weekly in New York to talk about her book and son.
The joys of motherhood.
“Cree is almost 1 and time has definitely flung by. I cannot believe it! I’m like, ‘Whoa, where has the time gone? He’s not this tiny little newborn anymore! I’m already missing that stage. So I can’t imagine when he’s, like, 18 and he’s going away to college — I’m going to miss him! I can’t even think about that right now. But he is my amazing gift. My amazing miracle. I love being a mom, I really do.”
Advice for twin sister Tamera.
“Follow your instincts and as soon as that baby comes out, you’re automatically going to know what to do. I spent hundreds of dollars on these classes that teach you how to feed a baby, burp a baby, swaddle them. . . you really don’t have to take classes for that. You’ll just pick it up like that.”
On Oh Baby!
“All the books I had read were extremely medically driven, and it was all the bad things that happen during your pregnancy. I’m like, ‘Look. I’m scared. I’m already anxious. I don’t need to be reminded about this.’ So I wanted to write a book that was informative, fun, comedic and kind of coming from a girlfriend’s perspective.”
