A talented and versatile actress in both movies and television,Tia can now add, producer, MOM, and Author to her M.O.M resume!
We all fell in love with Tia the first time (almost 2 decades ago) in Sister Sister. Not only has she captured the audience in the BET comedy The Game, but we again fell in love with Tia in person last year with her Style Network's hit reality series, Tia & Tamera.
We also have the opportunity to read how Tia embraced her first pregnancy with open arms but like all women who have gone through pregnancy, there are many things you never knew until you were pregnant (well there may be no more secrets if you read Tia's book).
Tia accredits her new found esteem for fellow woman and moms out there to being pregnant and becoming a mom. Tia's Book, Oh!Baby is on sale now, so let her guide you into Mom-hood!

As a M.O.M., we wear many 'hats', what is the 'hat' you have been wearing lately?
Oh my gosh, I've been wearing quite a few hats lately! I am a mother, a wife, a sister, an actress, an author, and an executive producer!

It was very hard going back to work after I had Cree! It was so hard to adjust from being there with him every day to then suddenly having to leave him for work.
Do you think your career priorities have changed now that you are a mom?
Yes! Everything that I do now, I am doing for Cree and with him in mind. I want to do everything I can so that he can have a better life.
Being a working actress, what have you found to be your biggest M.O.M. struggle? Any advice for us M.O.Ms on how you can handle working and raising a family? By the way, how did you find time to fit in writing a book, too?
The biggest struggle is trying not to feel guilty about leaving your child! I cannot put in to words how hard it is to leave Cree when I have to work.
We all got to experience how you handled pregnancy on Style's "Tia & Tamera", tell us what your book, "Oh, Baby!" is going to share with readers, and of course, moms and mama's to be.
My book is all about tips and advice about the things that happen during pregnancy that a lot of people don't tell you about. I have a 'Hot Mama Style' chapter in the book, which basically tells you how to keep your hot mama style throughout your pregnancy.
I have a list of my top 10 go-to's to stay stylish as a pregnant mom, too -- I truly believe that just because you're pregnant doesn't mean you have to give up on your style.
You're pregnant for a long time [almost a year!] so I hope people come away from my book knowing that even though pregnancy can be scary, it is empowering. There's nothing more amazing than bringing life in to this world, and having life grow inside of you.
Do you want to share a favorite quote or M.O.M. motto you live by now?
Never give up! You are stronger than you know.
Tia is a great inspiration and role model to all of us M.O.Ms out there. You can follow M.O.M Tia along socially as well!
