I was sure that my heart was bubbling over when news broke that actress Tamara Mowry-Housley had finally given birth to her baby boy Aden, but now I think it might just POP! The 34-year-old first time mom took to her Twitter page last night to share a beautiful handwritten letter, which she composed for her 1-month-old son Aden. She posted the heartfelt letter on Tia and Tamera Official, which is a recent lifestyle site that she shares with her twin sister Tia. On Twitter, the actress tweeted, “An open letter to my sweet little man. Mommy loves you sooo much,” before sharing the love note. Check out the full letter below:

Dear Aden,

You’ll get used to mommy’s tears eventually. I cry at everything. Once I heard I became pregnant with you, I felt a joy that I have never felt before and cried tears of joy. Mommy has wanted to be a mommy ever since she can remember. Once I met your father Adam and we knew we were going to be married, if we were going to have a boy I, me, knew your name instantly. To add to the joy of your arrival, discovering that you were a boy, mommy was even more elated. We had the perfect name for you Aden!

Counting down to your arrival, mommy was so nervous, excited, and anxious all in me. I just couldn’t wait to meet you. You see, lil booger, you took your time to come into this world. Almost two weeks late to be exact. I spent countless nights imagining what you were going to look like. I couldn’t wait to look into your beautiful eyes for the first time and hold you close. I also couldn’t sleep at night because I was hoping and praying that I would be the best mommy I could be to you. I felt very blessed that God has entrusted me with you.

When I saw you for the first time my heart melted and I couldn’t believe such a beautiful angel was mine. I am so thankful for you. Mommy couldn’t be more proud. I know our first four weeks were a lil wobbly. I’m new at this.

I fall in love with you each day even more. On the days and nights my eyes sting of exhaustion, I just look at that face of yours and all is well and VERY worth it. I love you son! Wow! Can’t believe I have a son. Mommy can’t wait to see you grow into a fine young man and I’m looking forward to our many fun adventures together. Love you with all of my heart and soul. I see theworld with new eyes because of you and I thank you for that my son.

Is this the sweetest thing ever or what? Check out an image of the actual handwritten letter  and more photos of Aden on the next page.

  • I’m taking a moment to be ratchet and silly and ask why did you post this letter? Now other celebrities will get ideas:

    Dear Blue-Ivy,

    Sometimes I wonder, why did God give me this baby.
    I am so blessed. You are so very very very beautiful. And a gift from God.

    We are lucky to have a beautiful and smart African American First Lady that you can be like.

    Aden is a very very lucky little boy. Congrats to the new parents, and may every day ahead be filled with the joy you are feeling now. God Bless.

    her and her sister did everything thing right…are young black daughters need to look up to black women like this instead of Mimi and Joseline…when you let the Lord order your steps this is what life can look like…I’m proud of those two women their parents did a fantastic job with them

      Tamera* and Our*….sorry for the errors

  • I ain’t gonna lie I teared up reading this letter because I too, when I’m ready in the far future, to have a boy and I feel like this letter said everything I would probably want to say to my son. Also because I’m a big cry baby anyway lol
