‘Just Stay With It, Everything Will Be Fine’: Tia’s Coaching Twin sister, Tamera, On Motherhood
Last month, actress Tamara Mowry-Houseley gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Aden and considering the fact that Tamera is a first-time mom, we figured that once the highly anticipated bundle of joy arrived, the questions would begin rolling in. Luckily for Tamera, she has her twin sister Tia, who gave birth a mere 16 months before her, to teach her the ropes. In a recent interview with OK! Magazine, Tia discussed some of the questions Tamera has had and how she’s been showing her twinsie the ropes.
“The first thing, she was like ‘oh my goodness, how do you do this breastfeeding? It’s difficult, it’s hard, and it hurts! I’m like ‘just stay with it. Everything will be fine.”
On getting sleep with a newborn around:
‘I’ve also given her the advice of ‘sleep when the baby sleeps,’ because, like me, we want to make sure everything is tidied up around the house and in the kitchen and with the clothes. I’m like ‘Tamera, you just have to let them pile up a little bit, and sleep when your baby sleeps, because if you don’t, you will be a walking zombie.’”
While Tia equipping her sister with tips and tricks on motherhood has the tendency to make a person feel all warm and fuzzy inside, the most adorable part of the interview had to be when she revealed her son Cree’s reaction to meeting his new cousin.
“He loves him,” she says. “The first time he saw him, he let out a gasp. He went ‘uhhh!’ I thought that was so freaking adorable. And then I show him pictures of his little cousin, and he’ll just look at it. I’ll take the phone away, and he doesn’t want me to take the phone away. He’s mesmerized by Aden. My sister and I, we think that they’re going to be best friends, and they’re going to turn on us. [laughs] They’re going to be crazy! [laughs]”
How ridiculously, unbearably adorable!
