Five months pregnant and definitely glowing in a black Badgley Mischka gown with a silver lace empire bodice at the NAACP Image Awards, Tia Mowry can’t wait to be a mother. “I love being pregnant, just knowing that there’s a being inside of you. I’m so thrilled,” she told BET.com. “We have several names picked out but we want to meet him first, see his face and see his expression." She continued, "He’s due July 3rd, and I was born July 6th,” she said, hoping he doesn’t arrive late. “I don’t want him to be born on my birthday. I want him to have his own day.”
Her husband, Cory Hardrict, “has been amazing” during her pregnancy, making late night craving runs for her to Taco Bell, 7-Eleven for Slushees, and McDonald’s for French fries, she said. That aside, she’s been eating mainly fruits and vegetables. “I’m following the Body Ecology diet. I have a chef cooking for me.”
Cameras are following her pregnancy for the upcoming Style Network show Tia & Tamera Take 2, set to premiere in late summer. Will she allow them into the delivery room? “Hell no!” she said with a laugh, but you can expect to see the baby shower and nursery decoration. We have a company working for us that did J Lo’s nursery and approached me to do mine. I’m really excited to start from scratch and work with them,” she said.
She’s also helping her twin sister Tamera plan her wedding to Adam Housley. “There’s so much going on,” acknowledged The Game’s star. “If I think about it too much I’ll go crazy and stressing is not good for the baby. So I’m just taking it a day at a time.”
