Tia Mowry is just about ready to pop, so what better time to celebrate the new arrival with a baby shower?
E! News reports that this weekend Tia, who stars on BET’s "The Game", was treated to an afternoon of goodies and gifts at the London Hotel. The baby bash was sponsored by Disney Baby, and guests nibbled on red velvet cupcakes from Sweet E’s.
Wendy Raquel-Robinson, Brittany Daniel and of course, twin sister Tamera Mowry, were all in attendance to party with the mom-to-be. According to Tamera, the baby is due in the next two weeks, and she’s already claiming official auntie duties.
"I’m gonna babysit, even though I’m a newlywed," Tamera said, adding that she feels it’s important to get that time to bond with her nephew. But just because there’s a new baby doesn’t mean that she’ll forget about her beloved sister. "I already got her two gifts. She has no idea, but I’m actually going to buy her a gift when she has the baby because a lot of times people always forget about the mom."
Tamera added, "I’m going to go get her some comfy clothes."
Cory Hardrict, Tia’s hubby, also showed up for the shindig—much to the surprise of the ladies in attendance. There was no way that the proud papa was going to miss his son’s party.
The question of the hour, though, was what Tia and Cory will name their baby once he’s born.
"We do have some names. We don’t know just yet," Tia teased before dropping a few hints. "I do know that his name starts with a C, and the meaning is ‘warrior.’ My husband thinks he’s this warrior, so he’s like ‘I want my son to be a warrior.’"
In all they have about three names picked out, each meaning "warrior". Knowing that narrows down the list of possible monikers for the baby. Tia and Cory won’t know which is most fitting until he arrives. "We’ll figure it out once I see him in person," she said.
Between thanking guests, snapping pics and opening presents, Tia revealed that she won’t get much time for maternity leave once her son makes his grand entrance. "I have two months after I give birth to be back working on ‘The Game’…in Atlanta," she exlplained.
