Tia Mowry Is Over Mom Body Shaming

"Women are vulnerable after they have their babies."

Celebrity News

Tia Mowry-Hardrict is one of the few celebrities who shared her journey on the reality of motherhood with the world. Even though it caused her to be the subject of hateful scrutiny, the mom of two has been extremely vulnerable about not just her struggle to get pregnant, but the changes her body has endured while experiencing motherhood to the fullest.

She openly celebrated her milestone of getting back to her pre-baby body recently, but she's been nothing less than real about how difficult the journey has been. During a candid conversation on The Tamron Hall Show, she opened up about her transition, why she's against mom body shaming, the importance of self-care, and still dating her husband of almost 12 years.

When it comes to mom body shaming, Tia experienced it with both of her children. She's mom to her eight-year-old son Cree and her daughter Cairo, who will be two in May. Still, she recently revealed that she's just now feeling like herself again, and the trolls on social media didn't help.

"I really feel that it's a shame that people just tend to bully women, especially after they've brought a beautiful child into this world. Women are vulnerable after they have their babies. You're going through hormonal changes, just emotionally, postpartum depression, you're going through just adjusting having your baby at home, you're sleep-deprived. And then you have people not being kind about the weight you've gained, that you're supposed to gain after having a baby."

Going through bullying can be traumatizing period, so I couldn't imagine experiencing it as a new mom. But Tia also addressed bullying in general, and how it's been the cause of many young children taking their own lives.

"I think I'm so passionate about it because I understand what bullying does to the psyche. There are children out there who commit suicide because of words. I, just, you know…I have no time for it. Ain't nobody got time for that!"

But what our good sis has made time for is keeping her love life afloat.

"It's very important that when you are in a union, a marriage, and you have children that you keep that relationship strong. My husband and I, we have date nights like once a week, even if it's at home. I make him dinner or he makes me dinner… I think it's OK to schedule it in there, because then you know it's gonna happen."

Ultimately, we play multiple roles in the lives of those around us: mom, sister, daughter, wife, friend, colleague, the list is truly never-ending. I think most of us have come to terms with the fact that there's no way to balance it all. And that's OK. Tia added:

"As women in general, we tend to just focus on everybody else. Are our kids OK? Is our husband OK? How can you be the best CEO, the best entrepreneur, the best mom, sister, the list goes on and on, if you don't take care of yourself… The tagline is, you are the answer, and insinuating that you are the only one that can do that. You are the only one that can take care of you."

How To Focus Less On Who You Attract In Dating & More On Who You Entertain

The law of attraction is tricky. A few years ago, I felt something was deeply wrong with me because I kept attracting people who hurt me. No matter how hard I tried to fix myself, and alter my energy, the same type of people kept coming my way. I'd talk to my friends about it and ask them, "Why do I keep attracting this type of person? Why do I keep having the same experiences?"
