Bryce(R) and Kaden(L) are social media cuties as parents  Tomiko Fraser-Hines and Chris Hines share a picture of  their sweets with Twitter fans. “I said that I didn’t want to be one of those mothers who always post pics of her children. But they’re so dang cute,” tweets Fraser-Hines of her sons.


Model Tomiko recently sat down with Katie Couric to talk about her diagnosis of Premature Ovarian Failure, a condition that causes women to enter menopause early, which nearly halted her dream of having kids. “[The diagnosis was] completely, completely shocking,” said Tomiko. “I have always wanted to have children. [I] got married late in life and was ready to go. After several failed attempts, I got tested.”

Fraser-Hines ultimately sought the assistance of an anonymous egg donor in having her sons. Her advice to women facing facing Premature Ovarian Failure is simple: “Be okay with your dream being altered. [You’re] not losing sight of your dream but [you’re also] not necessarily having it just be the way you think it should be. Do your research, get great people around you to support you, and just be patient and know that you will be a parent one way or another…We need more African American egg donors.”

Chris, stage manager for the Ellen Degeneres show, and Tomiko married in 2006.
