Tamera Mowry, pregnant with her first child, has her fingers crossed for a boy! Why the strong preference for one gender over the other? The actress explains.
Of discovering she and husband Adam Housely are going to become parents a little sooner than expected Tamera Mowry said, “Adam and I were in the, ‘Whatever happens, happens’ mode. It felt like I was going to get my period, but I didn’t get it.”
“So I took a pregnancy test and that was it,” she continued. “I was shocked at first. I couldn’t talk for two minutes. It was a feeling I can’t describe.”
Speaking to MyStyle about her gender preference the actress said, “I want a boy because I have two brothers whom I love and adore. I helped raise my brothers so I have somewhat of an experience raising boys. I haven’t the slightest idea about raising a girl. It’s like the unknown.”
As for what kind of mother she aims to be Tamera Mowry plans a balancing act. “My mom was very, very strict with me growing up. I don’t want to be too strict and I don’t want to be too lenient. It’ll be a balance,” the 33-year-old shared.
“I also definitely have to make sure I don’t spoil my baby, because I naturally love to do it. I do it with [twin sister Tia's son] Cree and with my brothers. I’ll probably cry at everything—every milestone, every achievement. I did that with my brothers. I hope I will be a great mom. Every mom-to-be says that, and they say if you’re thinking that, you will be.”
