Tamera Mowry, 33, is expecting her first child with husband Adam Housely, 40!
The actress tells PEOPLE, “Adam and I are excited about having a baby and the blessing that he or she will bring to our lives and to our family and friends. We can’t wait to meet this little miracle!”
The news comes only 11 months after their wedding last May. Initially, the newly weds had planned to hold off on having kids but changed their minds after a trip to South Africa.
“It’s just so beautiful there and you get a whole new perspective on life, the things that really matter,” Mowry-Housley explains to PEOPLE. “Adam and I looked at each other and said, ‘Why wait?’”
On how she’s been coping Tamera says, “The first trimester was a little rough. I was extremely fatigued and had morning sickness — more like evening sickness. Luckily, it has subsided in my second trimester. I feel great as of now — more like myself.”
As for the reaction of twin sister, Tia — who welcomed son Cree just 10 months ago — well, it didn’t come much as a surprise. Perhaps her twin intuition was in full swing.
“Her first reaction [when I called to tell her] was, ‘I KNEW it!’” the reality star — who will appear alongside her sister on the second season of Tia & Tamera, premiering June 11 on the Style Network – shares. “Tia is beyond thrilled. Cree now has a play date in the future!”
The expectant mom and Housley, a National and International correspondent for FOX News, will welcome their first child in early November.
