Actress Tia Mowry-Hardrict is dishing on one of Cree’s milestones. The Instant Mom star shares that Cree, 2, finally said those magic words: “I love you”.
Tia shared, “It was in the morning, and of course I’m into co-sleeping, so he was in the bed with my husband and I. We were playing Angry Birds on my iPhone — because he loves that game first thing in the morning — I lean over to him, I give him a kiss on the cheek, and I say, ‘I love you, Cree,’ and he reciprocated and said, ‘I love you.’ Then, of course, I started bawling. I was just floored and my husband was looking at me like, ‘Oh my God, Tia.’”
Tia also opened up about wishing someone had warned her about working mom’s guilt. She shared about this revelation, “No one ever told me about the guilt that you have as a working mother — and I wish someone had. I’m all about keeping it real, and I got the, ‘It’s great being a mom! It’s the best thing in the world!’ I wish someone would have been honest with me about that because the guilt is so strong.”
She’s happy to show Cree that life takes hard work, though. “I’m like every other mom out there that goes to work to help provide for their family, and take care of their child, and I really had to learn how to change my perspective on it. I want my child to grow up seeing that his mom works hard for what she gets. If I can instill that with my son, that, ‘Mommy works hard, and things aren’t just given to her,’ then I’ve done a good thing.”
