Tia Mowry has spoken candidly about the struggles she faced while trying to conceive her second child.
The Sister Sister star has admitted that she delayed trying for a little one, even though it’s something she really wanted, as a result of having endometriosis.
‘I didn’t think I’d be able to have a second child, and it’s been over seven years since my first pregnancy. I put it off, but I did want to have another child,’ said Tia.

‘I didn’t let my infertility issues define me or define what my goals were and what I wanted out of life. We did try for a long time. It was hard. But I didn’t give up.’
Tia – who recently announced that she and husband Cory Hardrict are expecting a baby girl in an adorable gender reveal video – went on to say that she’s adoring being a mum-to-be.
‘I just feel so much joy with [this pregnancy]. Also, who knows if I’ll ever be able to get pregnant again? So I am embracing and enjoying every moment,’ the actress told People.
‘I just wanted to really embrace every moment and also keep moving. My first pregnancy, I was afraid to do anything, and I feel better [now] because I’m moving, dancing.’
Tia, 39, made her happiness quite clear yesterday when she took to Instagram to show fans her changing figure.
