Tamera Mowry-Housley is a new mom with some new curves, and she’s not ashamed to show off her post-baby figure.
“At first you’re shocked. You’re like, ‘My body’s completely different.’ Your boobs are in your face; you have stretch marks; you have curves that you never had before,” Tamera told Us Weekly.
It’s no secret that Hollywood holds its stars to a high standard, and Tamera said that’s a big concern for a lot of new moms in the entertainment industry.
“There’s a lot of pressure, especially when you see people like Claire Danes and Megan Fox,” said Tamera who recently showed up to an Essence event in a form-fitting dress that accentuated her curves.
“I wanted to arrive with a bang!” Tamera wrote on her blog. “I felt like one hot mama!! I wanted to show off my new boobies (lol) and my post-pregnancy body.”
Though she’s still getting used to her curves, Tamera wrote that she’s proud of her body. Luckily, her husband Adam seems to be just as pleased.
“My husband said, ‘Happy girls are pretty girls,’ and he keeps telling me that. Enjoy the phase that you’re in. I’m enjoying it,” Tamera said.
