Tia Mowry is positively over the moon after recently giving birth to her son, Cree. It is the first child for the star actress of BET’s The Game and her actor husband Cory Hardrict. She sat with Celebrity Baby Scoop for an interview and discussed the joys of motherhood and marriage:
CBS: Congratulations on the birth of Cree Taylor Hardrict! How are you and your husband Cory adjusting?
TMH: “We are adjusting, but adjusting well! He is almost 6 weeks and I’ve heard around the second and third month the little love button sleeps longer which is a bonus. We are having fun but it’s a lot of work, and we are enjoying every minute of it!”
CBS: Being first time parents is an exciting time, but it can also be a bit stressful too. Do you have any tips for our readers on how to balance motherhood, marriage and career?
TMH: “I’m still learning. I am not gonna pretend that I have it all under control. I am terrified about going back to work sleep deprived! However, I know I can do it. I would just tell mothers to have patience and take it literally a day at a time; well more like an hour at a time. Once you know you’ve survived yesterday, you can survive the next day. I also try to not freak out about the little things which new parents often do.
On marriage, make time for one another. Don’t forget about those date nights. Put on a sexy dress and some sexy high heels and have a great night and enjoy each other. Also, incorporate your husband. Get him involved and let him know how important he is with taking care of your joy.”
CBS: Is Cory a hands-on dad? What is this new experience like for him?
TMH: “Cory is an amazing father! It has been wonderful to watch him in this new role. He is so great with Cree and with me. We have been enjoying this new experience as parents, figuring out what each type of ‘cry’ means and watching him start to really see people or objects and how he reacts to everything.”
CBS: What’s next for you? Do you have any upcoming projects you would like to tell us about?
TMH: “I am writing a new book about my pregnancy experience which will come out next spring, and production on The Game starts next month.”
Congrats again to the couple! Be sure to catch them every Monday on ‘Tia and Tamera’ at 9pm on the Style network.
