The actress, whose twin has given birth to a son last year, initially wanted to wait to have a child.
Former child star Tamera Mowry is going to be a first-time mother. The 33-year-old confirmed to People that she is expecting a child with husband Adam Housley in early November.
"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," said Tamera who is already in her second trimester. "We can't wait to meet this little miracle!"
Tamera, who married the Fox News Correspondent in May last year, did not plan to have a baby immediately but a trip to South Africa changed everything. "It's just so beautiful there and you get a whole new perspective on life, the things that really matter," the actress said. "Adam and I looked at each other and said, 'Why wait?' "
The first trimester for Tamera was "a little rough" with the fatigue and morning sickness but she now feels "great …more like myself." Recalling how she broke the news to twin sister Tia Mowry, Tamera said, "Her first reaction [when I called to tell her] was, 'I KNEW it!' " Tia gave birth to her first child, a boy named Cree, in June. "Tia is beyond thrilled. Cree now has a play date in the future!" Tamera said.
