New Mom Tia Mowry Dishes On The Surprises Of Motherhood

“The Game” actress Tia Mowry shares what has surprised her the most about motherhood.

Tia gave birth to her son, Cree Taylor, at the end of June and she says she can’t get over how emotional the experience has been.  “It’s a lot more emotional than I expected. I knew it would be emotional, but I didn’t know it would be this emotional.  People always say you never know love until you have your own child and all of that is true.”

Even though other moms will warn about the lack of sleep, she is still shocked at just how tired she is:  “I didn’t know I’d be this exhausted. I’m so sleep deprived.  When I talk to other mothers about it they’re like, ‘Oh yeah, honey, and it doesn’t change. Your body just gets used to it.’”

She’s anxious to get back to work and plans to take Cree along each day, but she admits she’s nervous about how the lack of sleep will affect things on set.  “I’m excited, but very nervous about how I’m going to balance things out because right now I get no sleep and I’m gonna have to memorize lines. Lack of sleep and studying don’t go hand in hand for me.”

Tia says that husband Cory Hardrict has been a huge help and has fit right into his daddy role: “He’s changing diapers, he’s feeding, bathing, all of it.  At night I pump bottles so he can do feedings.”

Aside from ‘The Game’, Tia is also starring in a reality show (‘Tia & Tamera’) with her twin sister, Tamera Mowry.   The show highlights Tia’s pregnancy and Tamera’s wedding.
