If you think Tia Mowry is pregnant, you’re wrong. Also, you’re engaging in a bit of body shaming, she says.
“I am not pregnant, I am just happy. I’ve gained these extra 10 [or] 15 pounds because of my cooking show. I’m just enjoying life and when I want to drop the pounds, I will, but right now I’m happy with who I am. But it is a form of body shaming, I will say that, and it’s pretty unfortunate … We live in a society that is so obsessed with being perfect – why can’t we just be us? Mowry said in a recent HuffPost Live interview.
Mowry’s cooking show, Tia Mowry At Home, airs on the Cooking Channel.
This isn’t the first time Tia Mowry has felt compelled to address pregnancy rumors. A few months, ago, she posted an image of a pregnancy test that read “just fat” to Instagram.
“FYI. For all the people that think I’m pregnant. I’m NOT just enjoying life and eating and cooking some great food! Thanks:) again I repeat I AM NOT PREGNANT!” she captioned the photo.
She also addressed her marriage in the recent interview, saying she doesn’t care about gender roles.
“We don’t put gender roles on our marriage and our relationship. If I’m working a lot and Cory’s home, he will put Cree to bed, and if dishes need to be washed, he will wash them. So it’s not like, ‘Oh, I’m going to wait until my wife gets home and she’s going to be doing all that,'” she said.
