Tia Mowry-Hardrict is excited about finally meeting sister Tamera Mowry-Housley’s first child, who is due to make his grand entrance later this month.
“I’m so proud of my sister. She’s been working on ‘Tia & Tamera.’ We’ve been shooting all throughout her pregnancy, and she’s been handling it with grace,” Tia told “Access Hollywood.”
Fans will be able to see for themselves how Tamera is handling it all when the series returns to Style on October 16.
With almost two years of motherhood under her belt, new episodes and a new nephew coming soon, Tia admitted that she’s changed, and she chopped off her luscious locks to indicate that.
“I was really inspired by my son. He’s allowed me to see this world from a different perspective. I have a new perspective on life, a new lease on life. I’m not the same person that I was before. I wanted to get rid of the old. So, that’s why I decided to cut my hair,” she said.
Her son, Cree, isn’t the only one who inspires Tia. She said watching women, like first lady Michelle Obama, who stay true to themselves while being great moms, is also motivating.
“I’m a mom, and I honor people like Halle Berry or Heidi Klum… women who are mothers, but they don’t lose their identity,” she said.
Tia, an author who will be starring in the upcoming new sitcom, “Instant Mom,” has also learned to juggle career and family. That’s a lesson she may soon be passing on to sister Tamera, who is prepping for the big day, according to Tia.
“She’s resting up. She’s very, very close, very close. I cannot wait to meet my nephew,” she said.
Tia and Tamera discuss the reality TV curse in the November 2012 issue of Sister 2 Sister.
