The lovely ladies over at Sister 2 Sister recently caught up with one of Hollywood’s favorite little brothers, Tahj Mowry, just as he made his way down the red carpet at the ESSENCE Black Women In Music Event. When asked how seeing his sisters with his nephews has impacted his own desire for children, he gave a hilariously truthful response.
“Well, the marriage will definitely come before the baby, not just because that’s the way I want to do it. But, because my mom will beat my a**… I’m in no rush. I’m taking the steps. I got a girlfriend, so that’s good. I always joke with people that having nephews is the best birth control there is. And you know, the show I’m on, we have babies as well. So I’m constantly surrounded by babies and I do not want my own right now.”
“There’s something so great about playing with your nephew and then like, when you’re tired, you like hand him off back to your sister. ‘Here you go, mom!’ But. I’m a great uncle. I spoil them like crazy. I love being an uncle,” Tahj said.
I suppose he has his baby guru, parenting-advice slanging older sisters, Tia and Tamera, who each gave birth to baby boys within the past two years, to thank for that. Tahj’s response is humorous but, true. He seems to have a really good head on his shoulders. In case you’ve been wondering what he’s been up to, he currently has a role in the ABC Family sitcom, Baby Daddy. It’s so hard to believe that he’s the same little boy from 90’s sitcom, Smart Guy. He’s grown up nicely.
