Tia Mowry celebrated her son Cree Hardrict’s tenth birthday on Monday (June 28). The Family Reunion star took to Instagram to commemorate her youngster’s special day.
“#happybirthday my firstborn,” Tia wrote to Cree. “Seeing you grow up has given me the greatest joy a #mother can ask for,” the celebrity mom doted. “You are so funny, kind, and full of #love Today you are #10 years old! Cree #mommy loves you!”
Cree is Tia Mowry and her husband Cory Hardrict’s oldest child. The celebrity couple welcomed their daughter, Cairo Tiahna Hardrict, in 2018. Tia recently spoke with the press about her unhealthy expectations regarding weight loss that made her feel bad about her journey after the birth of her daughter.
“I had an unhealthy perspective because of what was pushed in society,” Tia shared with Yahoo’s So Mini Ways. “So when I saw that my belly wasn’t flat after having a baby and I was not on the beach in a bikini saying, ‘Yeah, I just had a baby!’ I literally thought something was wrong with me,” the actress shared.
It took time for Tia Mowry to lose the weight she gained during her pregnancy. “I went to my gynecologist and I said, ‘Why isn’t my stomach going down? Like, what’s wrong with me?’ And then she actually told me, ‘Tia, it takes a minute for your uterus to shrink.’ And I’m like, ‘What? Why is it that people aren’t sharing this? Why is it that people aren’t sharing the authentic aftermath of what happens when we give birth?'”
Instead of keeping the new knowledge to herself, Tia decided to use her platform to share the realities of the average woman’s post-baby body with the world. “I wanted [to] be an example for the other women that you necessarily didn’t see being celebrated or glorified in the press or just social media,” Mowry shared with So Mini Ways. “So I did it because I want to see some change, and the feedback has definitely been positive and inspiring.”
