Although expecting actress Tamera Mowry only recently announced her pregnancy, the 33-year-old Tia & Tamera star is hoping that her first little bundle will be a blue one.
“I want a boy because I have two brothers whom I love and adore,” she explains to mystyle.com. “I helped raise my brothers so I have somewhat of an experience raising boys. I haven’t the slightest idea about raising a girl. It’s like the unknown.”
Pregnant with the couple’s first child and due in early November, Tamera is definitely looking forward to joining her twin sister Tia in the joys of motherhood (Tia has 10-month-old son Cree).
“Adam and I were in the, ‘Whatever happens, happens’ mode,” Tamera reveals. “It felt like I was going to get my period, but I didn’t get it.”
“So I took a pregnancy test and that was it,” she continues. “I was shocked at first. I couldn’t talk for two minutes. It was a feeling I can’t describe.”
Relishing in the “happiest” moment of her life, the mom-to-be realized she had to break the wonderful yet unexpected news to her husband Adam Housley.
“I actually texted Adam a picture of two pregnancy tests and said, ‘Happy early Father’s Day!’” the actress recalls.
Although Tamera is excited about her future role of mommy, she also want to be the best possible mother she can.
“I don’t want to be too strict and I don’t want to be too lenient,” she says. “It’ll be a balance. I also definitely have to make sure I don’t spoil my baby, because I naturally love to do it.”
I’ll probably cry at everything — every milestone, every achievement. I hope I will be a great mom. Every mom-to-be says that, and they say if you’re thinking that, you will be.”
Congrats again to the happy couple!
