Who says that pregnancy style has to be inappropriate? Certainly not Tamera Mowry-Housley. The actress and ‘Real’ co-host tells PEOPLE that it is possible to dress sexy while expecting.
“I always feel sexier when I’m pregnant,” says the star. However, “The worse thing that a pregnant woman can do is force herself into jeans or clothing that obviously isn’t maternity and it’s too tight. So if you’re not going to wear maternity clothes, make sure you can still get away with it comfortably.”
Mrs. Housley is certainly using this time to learn a few fashion rules that she can pass on to her daughter. “I feel like I have to up my fashion game already,” shares the actress. “I want to be an inspiration to her from birth. I already know I’m going to do my hair, I’m going to do my makeup because it’s so weird what having a daughter does to you. You just become more girly.”
In addition to becoming more “girly” in the area of style, Tamera is becoming more aware of her diet as an expectant mom. “I’m learning that a lot of times, women think that once you’re pregnant you have to eat for two,” she explains. “Of course you’re supposed to eat — on average, you’re supposed to eat about 300 calories [extra]. And 300 calories is about two full glasses of whole milk and a piece of toast. So when you put that into perspective, it’s like, okay, I’m eating for a little peanut. Not a whole other person.”
Tamera and husband Adam Housley are expecting their daughter to arrive in July. The couple are already the proud parents of a son named Aden.
