Tia Mowry: “I’m So Obsessed With My Son!”

Tia Mowry(BlackDoctor.org) — Tia Mowry was thrilled when her son Cree (“it means warrior,” she says), her first child with husband Cory Hardrict, was born five days early on June 28.

“I was told to be prepared for him to come before or after my due date. I was excited to get this baby out of me,” confides The Game star, whose pregnancy—and twin sister Tamera’s wedding preparations—are the subject of Style Network’s Tia & Tamera, which premieres the first of eight episodes on Monday, August 8.

She recently sat down with BET’s Randy Norman to talk about the show, her baby and plans for the future.

How’s motherhood—is it what you expected?

Tia: It’s a lot more emotional than I expected. I knew it would be emotional but didn’t know it would be this emotional. People always say you never know love until you have your own child and all of that is true. I’m so obsessed and involved with my son. I didn’t know I’d be this exhausted. I’m so sleep deprived. When I talk to other mothers about it they’re like, “Oh yeah, honey, and it doesn’t change. Your body just gets used to it.”
