Since becoming a first-time mom on June 28, 2011, Tia Mowry's life has changed dramatically.
"Cree is almost 1 and time has definitely flung by. I cannot believe it! I'm like, 'Whoa, where has the time gone? He's not this tiny little newborn anymore!" Tia, 33, said during a recent visit to Us Weekly's NYC offices. "And I'm already missing that stage. So I can't imagine when he's, like, 18 and he's going away to college -- I'm going to miss him! I can't even think about that right now."
While Cree continues to achieve his own mini-milestones, Tia is busy helping her famous twin sister, Tamera, prepare for the arrival of her own firstborn.
"When the baby comes, your natural instincts are going to kick in," Tia promised. "Follow your instincts and as soon as that baby comes out, you're automatically going to know what to do. I spent hundreds of dollars on these classes that teach you how to feed a baby, burp a baby, swaddle them. . . you really don't have to take classes for that."
In fact, Tia recently authored a book, Oh, Baby! Pregnancy Tales and Advice From One Hot Mama to Another, with the intention of helping millions of future mothers prepare for child rearing.
"All the books I had read were extremely medically driven, and it was all the bad things that happen during your pregnancy," she told Us. "I'm like, 'Look. I'm scared. I'm already anxious. I don't need to be reminded about this.' So I wanted to write a book that was informative, fun, comedic and kind of coming from a girlfriend's perspective."
The second season of Tia & Tamera premieres June 11 on the Style Network.
