I guess the trolls will never learn that when it comes to coming for people on the internet, their children, even if they are the children of celebrities, should be off limits. Unfortunately, the desire to be seen, to elicit a reaction is stronger than the desire to show even a modicum of human decency. Like her sister before her, Tamera Mowry, is the latest celebrity enduring criticism of her new baby boy, Aden. “Fans” and critics (read: Trolls) of Tamera have recently made some rude and disrespectful comments regarding her interracial marriage to Fox News correspondent, Adam Housley. And now that the couple have expanded their family, these same people are now insulting her son by questioning (?) his skin color.
On the blog that she and twin sister Tia created, Tia and Tamera Official, Tamera decided that instead of addressing the critics, she’d respond to the people who left comments of support and encouragement.
Here’s what she had to say:
Tia and I have always known we have amazing fans, but reading all your messages and comments on this blog make it even clearer. When people say ignorant things about Aden’s race or my marriage with his daddy Adam, it’s easy for me to take it personally – even after all this time, my skin isn’t that thick!
But hearing your stories about your own beautiful, mixed race babies and the love you have for their fathers grounds me back to reality and reminds me of the truth: Skin color has NOTHING to do with love. How Aden looks or grows up to look like – whether he looks more “white” or more “black” – doesn’t matter to me. Why should it? He’s my precious baby boy and my only job is to be the best mommy I can be to him while showing him both sides of his heritage. All I want for him to believe is that love knows no boundaries.
Way to keep it classy and Tamera.
‘I Just Held Our Lil Baby And Cried:’ Tamera Mowry-Housley Recounts Emotional Reaction To Car Accident
New mom and actress, Tamera Mowry-Housley recently utilized her blog, Tia and Tamera Official, which she shares with her twin sister to discuss the close call car accident that changed her life. Although Tamera was not actually involved in the accident, she says it helped her to realize how short life is. In addition to sharing her experience, she urged the site’s readers to seize the moment and live life freely. Check out her post below.
“The other day, Adam, Aden and I had a brush with a very scary situation. We were driving along on the highway, when all of a sudden the car in front of us crashed into the car in front of it. We watched in horror as the car flipped over and over and over again on the highway. It was terrifying…I still get chills now just thinking about it. Our life really flashed right before our eyes. We were the next car in the accident that had a car flipping more than once straight ahead of us across the freeway! Although the moment goes so fast, you actually feel like you are moving in slow motion. All I could think about was protecting our new son Aden. Once we got out of our car and helped the victims, I just held our lil baby and cried.
I was grateful for my lovely family and realized the fact that life is too short. Life is too short to not do what you have set your heart out to do. Life is too short to hold any grudges. Life is short, and life is beautiful. To have the gift of life is a blessing. Many die daily and if you are alive right now, then you have been given that gift. It’s important we live it to the fullest and not get stuck or preoccupied with the worries, fears or pain. Instead, all we can do is trust in God and live every day He’s given me to the very fullest.
Ladies, let me ask you: What is holding you back from living freely, loving fiercely and pursuing your dreams? We should all treasure every moment we have in this fleeting life and take every opportunity to pursue our passions. Life is too short put things off.
You can do anything you put your mind to, and today is the day to start making your dreams happen. I believe in all of you!
Live, breathe, love, help, give, and smell the frickin’ roses.
What is a passion you have that you’ve been scared of pursuing? A grudge against someone that you want to let go of?”
What do you think of Tamera’s “epiphany”?

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:
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.
Talk about an exclusive! Just Monday, Tamera Mowry and her husband Adam Housely just welcomed their little boy Aden John Tanner into the world and already they’ve released pics of their little man to In Touch. Perhaps what’s even more surprising than seeing pics of little Aden so soon is how alert the cutie is at 1 or 2 days old!
Tamera’s baby was originally due on Halloween but her pregnancy went another full two weeks with the actress and reality star dropping her bundle of joy November 12. She told In Touch while she was waiting for Aden she tried to induce labor with natural remedies like drinking pineapple juice, evening primrose oil, a glass of wine and even dancing, squatting, and eating spicy food.
“I seriously feel like I have been pregnant forever,” Tamera told the mag several weeks ago. “Almost 10 months to be exact! Thirty-nine weeks in and no baby yet. ‘This has now become a waiting game,’ my OB told me.”
Thankfully the waiting game came to an end Monday and Tamera and Adam can now adjust to parenthood with their little bundle out the womb.
Check out a couple more pics of Aden on the next pages.
Expectant twin mommy Tamera Mowry-Housley has just joined People.com as their newest celebrity blogger and in her very first post, Tamera is spilling on the intimate moment she found out she was pregnant and the mixed set of emotions she experienced when she thought about the reality of being a mother.
“It took a while before the fact that I was pregnant settled in,” she wrote on Monday. “Once it did, I kept reciting to myself, ‘I’m going to be a mom. I’m going to be a mom.’ I will never forget the feeling that swept over me. I found myself pacing my room with excitement and experiencing a sense of joy I have never felt before.
“Once I got myself together, I immediately thought about how I would I tell my husband. I always wanted to do it in a creative way. I decided to text Adam a photo of four positive pregnancy tests — yes, you read right, FOUR positive pregnancy tests — and added, ‘HAPPY EARLY FATHER’S DAY!’
“Thirty minutes later, I still hadn’t heard back from him. I began to worry — was he in shock? I couldn’t wait any longer, so I called him and asked if he had seen his texts. He replied, ‘No’ and I happily told him to look. His response? ‘COOOL!!!’
Tamera said she took a pregnancy test after missing her cycle by just two days, but she noted that in hindsight she had been feeling really tired and crampy, which explains why she was quick to take a pregnancy test. After the worry of why Adam hadn’t responded to her texts went away, Tamera said a different type of worry set in.
“Once I called my husband, an interesting thing happened. The excitement died down and quickly turned into worry. ‘Is this normal?’ I thought. ‘Is this what being a parent feels like?’ Now that I knew I was pregnant, I became overwhelmed with so many emotions. I never knew how excited and overwhelmed you can feel at the same time.
“There are so many things to do and facts to find out. But not only that, so much information thrown at you all at once! How do I sift through it? I immediately downloaded iPhone apps and called my doctor and my mom. Now that I’m pregnant, where do I begin?”
Five months into her pregnancy with a little boy, Tamera’s no doubt figured out where to start by now, but it’s cool seeing her sift through the emotions so many new mothers have the moment they find out they’re expecting. Amidst the worry and anticipation, she hasn’t lost her sense of humor though. In her post, she cracked a joke about how people react to her husband’s job as a Fox news correspondent, covering fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, wars, and every other natural disaster you can imagine.
“Many people are terrified when they find out I married a man who works in dangerous places,” she wrote. “I simply respond with a smile and reply, ‘He loves his job and I think he’s s[w]exy when doing it.’ Hence, I am now knocked up. LOL!”
She’s so cute.

I won’t keep you in suspense long. From the mouth of the mommy-to-be herself, who recently had a chat with In Touch about her pregnancy, she told the magazine:
“I’m having a baby boy! We’re so thrilled.”
This news makes the Mowry offspring tally 2-0 boys. On the 28th of this month, Tia’s son Cree will turn 1 years old and Tamera says it’s been helpful having her nephew around to help prepare her for her own son, particularly when it comes to changing diapers. She told the mag:
“I’ve been practicing on him!”
By fall, Tamera’s little blue bundle will be here. The expecting newlywed just hit the five-month mark of her pregnancy, but she’s already begun decorating the nursery. It should come as no surprise that the design will be fit for a little man.
“It’s going to have a sports theme,” she revealed.
In other Sister Sister twin news, the second season of Tia and Tamera’s reality show on the Style network also premiered Monday, June 11 so there may be some pre/early pregnancy behind-the-scenes goodness to catch there.
Did you see the first episode?

It must be baby hump day because Tamera Mowry has followed up news that Chris Paul’s wife is pregnant with news that she and her husband Adam, are expecting a baby of their own.
“Adam and I are excited about having a baby and the blessing that he or she will bring to our lives and to our family and friends,” Tamera told PEOPLE.
The 33-year-old twin just became an aunt to sister, Tia’s, son Cree 10-months ago and next month the newlyweds will be celebrating their 1-year anniversary. Initially the couple wanted to hold off on children but a trip to South Africa changed everything.
“It’s just so beautiful there and you get a whole new perspective on life, the things that really matter,” Tamera said. “Adam and I looked at each other and said, ‘Why wait?’”
They won’t be waiting too much longer to welcome their son or daughter into the world. The baby is expected in November and Tamera said “We can’t wait to meet this little miracle!” She told the magazine:
“The first trimester was a little rough. I was extremely fatigued and had morning sickness — more like evening sickness.”
Luckily she’ll have her sister there to guide her through new motherhood and she’s apparently just as excited about the baby as the mother and father.
“Tia is beyond thrilled,” Tamera said. “Cree now has a play date in the future!”
