He’s growing fast!

Due with a baby boy on July 3, Tia Mowry and husband Cory Hardrict show off her belly at Tyler Perry’s First Annual Rise Above Celebration, held Friday at Boulevard3 in Hollywood, Calif.

“Right now, it’s McDonald’s French fries, slushies, Thai food. Oh! And kimchi,” The Game star, 32, tells PEOPLE of her cravings.

“And pickled garlic. I ate a whole bunch of garlic before I came to the award show and my make-up artist said, ‘You better go brush your teeth.’ I’m sure people are thinking, ‘How could you be doing this on an awards show?’ But I have to have it!”

She’s looking great and he looks like a proud daddy to be.

Amazing how women are different like Victoria Beckham is also due in July and she dosen’t have any signs of a baby bump.

Anyway this is going to be good looking little boy.

This picture looks so posed and I dont like her tight lipped smile.

Is it me or is she huge????? I’m due on July 2nd and I’m not even half her size!!!!

While I do know all women carry differently, some have long torsos, some have none, some show wider, some are longer. I do think that food has something to do with it. I am due August 2nd and most people can’t tell, but at the end of dinner whoa I look pregnant.

I think some preggers eat ALOT and there isn’t as much room for food in the belly, so it has no choice but to stick out. Alot of my friends who are different sizes 5-2 through 5-9 all eat moderately and exercise and they don’t show alot either. I just think how much food you eat has something to do with the baby belly.

This morning I looked, well not flat, but not pregnant either. But after a well fed lunch I very much have a baby bump 😉

Anonymous, are you kidding? She and her sister are still relevant…. Don’t hate, CONGRATULATE:)

Yikes I cant believe some of you. She’s not just back in the spotlight because she’s pregnant…she also has a #1 rated sitcom on cable, duh!! If that’s the case, what the heck has Selma Blair done or Katie Holmes for that matter….

@Anonymous wow, really?

I highly doubt she got pregnant just to be relevant. It doesn’t really matter if someone is relevant or not from someone else. If it matters then you clearly focus too much on their spotlight then the person themselves.


Lady and Shani your comments rock! Tia is beautiful and Cory looks like he can’t wait to have a little man around.

Slushies were a big hit with me while pregnant also esp in the third trimester I couldn’t go past a 7-11 w/out stopping for a big gulp!!!!

people need to grow up and stop judging people. while you over here talking about her being irrelevant or revelant let me ask you something what have you been doing with your life?? you just a lame bitter person that tries to knock people down so until you reach half her fame shut up!!!

TIA i think you look great and i congratulate you both, i pray yall keep up the good work.

I’m glad that “Anonymous” knew how stupid that comment was before they made it which is clearly why they stayed anonymous. Tia Mowery has never stopped being relevant since they were teenagers. She has been in tv shows & movies recently which shows how un-relevant & ignorant that comment was. This is why stars don’t like to share their lives with the public!!! Ugh! But anyways,Tia is still as beautiful as ever & looks great prego. She is all belly! Congrads Mr & Mrs Hardrict!

Ashleigh on

Tia , you look beautiful mama 😉 I see a beautiful family to be !! Ignore the ignorant comments from IRRELEVANT people ! Do your thanggg girl !

I love her!!! Her belly does look big though, I’m due in August and nobody knows I’m even preggers. Congrats hun…have a safe delivery

jay on

congrats to tia and cory, they are going to be fantastic parents! tia mowry will always remain relevant– she and tamera are icons in the entertainment industry. they’ve been able to remain grounded after being in the industry since the age of 10 and have never gone down the path other reckless child stars have taken.

i respect them both very much!
