Tamron Hall Talks Balancing Motherhood And Career

"I don't know what balance feels like. I know what being present feels like."

Celebrity News

Tamron Hall is getting real about the art of balancing motherhood and her career. The award-winning talk show host has a long-standing career as a highly-regarded journalist, but the birth of her son meant she had to make some changes. Tamron welcomed her son Moses in 2019 with her husband Steven Greener and she admitted in an interview with People that having balance is still a challenge.


"I don't know what balance feels like. I know what being present feels like," she said. "So for me, some days I feel that I've succeeded and other days, of course, I feel like I've fallen short of where I want to be as a mom for Moses. But my goal every day is whatever time I have with him to be present, to be there, to put my phone away and give him that time."

And while she tries to be present as much as she can with her son, she still experiences mom guilt when she’s not with him. But knowing that she’s not alone, she believes there’s a way for women to work through those feelings.

"Far too many moms have talked to me on the show about mom guilt and mom shame, which I've also felt. I'm a work in progress. I've felt those same feelings too," she said. "But there's such great advice and such great conversation that we can have with other moms every day to uplift rather than wallow in some of those difficult days. So for me, I don't know what balance feels like. I just know what it feels like to try."

When they do spend time together, she said they enjoy singing and dancing to their favorite songs and gushed how she believes her three-year-old is a little “entertainer.” "Oh boy, listen, this kid loves to sing. I think I have an entertainer on my hands," she said. "He loves singing. He loves dancing. We had to get him a karaoke machine. He has a drum. He loves it, but he's a traditional drummer. He doesn't want anything electric. He doesn't want anything with bells and whistles. He just wants the drum and the sticks. And he's quite the talent I have to say."

Tamron was 47-years-old when she became pregnant with Moses. Prior to that, she struggled with infertility and relied on in vitro fertilization to have a baby. Due to her stressful journey to getting pregnant, the journalist confessed that she was scared that she would lose her unborn child and it was one of the reasons why she waited so long to share the exciting news with the world.

“My doctor said, ‘This is your body, your health. You share of your journey what you want to share,’” she toldPeople in 2019. “I was terrified I would lose this baby and I would have to go back and tell everyone that now it was bad news and after this pregnancy had gone so far.”

Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
