Tia Mowry — mom, actress and author! Her new book offers a realistic perspective that no other pregnancy book offers, she says.
Tia Mowry is telling the world about her son, Cree — or what it was like to carry him, anyway. Her new book Oh, Baby: Pregnancy Tales and Advice from One Hot Mama to Another mirrors the journal entries she kept while pregnant, covering everything from cravings and symptoms to hopes and dreams for her son.
“I don’t mind sharing with the world the most amazing gift that God has ever given to me,” she said, according to People. “I think it’s good to basically share with my fans what it’s like to be a mom, the joys and the challenges.”
Tia noted that her book fills a gap that no bookstore currently offers for upcoming mom-to-be readers.
“I think with a lot of pregnancy books, it all came from a medical standpoint, and you were missing the fun, kind of girlfriend approach,” she explained. “You don’t want to be constantly reminded of all the bad things that can possibly go on through your pregnancy. You want to feel empowered.”
Cree is now 9 months old and accompanying Tia to work on the set of The Game.
“There’s a lot of things going on in your mind as a new mom,” she said. “When you go to work, you’re spending time and hours away from your child, and I would find myself crying and feeling guilty that I was not there. I had to change my perspective on the whole thing and say, ‘I am doing this for my son. I am working to give him a better life, to provide him and my family with the best.'”
