He is adorable! Does that little red bracelet mean they practice kaballah? I had never heard that about her.

Tamara on

I’m from the West Indies, Jamaica, and we have an old belief that a baby should wear a red string or something red until they are christened to keep evil away.

Kelly on

That’s interesting. I’ve never heard of the practice. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

amelia on

must be slow news for People mag. I am still trying to figure out how this chick is relevant. She was an actress a long time ago. Now she is all over People b/c she is having a kid…big deal!!

IRM on

Quynh Phuong Tran on

Wendie on

He’s gorgeous.

Guest on

What’s wrong with his left and right eyes? lol they don’t seem to match.

Traci on

Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy! Having a new baby during the holidays is extra special!

FYI Amelia- She is relevant because she has a successful show with her sister on the Style network, and has had for a couple of years. You should check it out before you criticize or, if you don’t know her, why read the article in the first place? Still don’t understand why people come to an article about a beautiful baby, and need to make snippy comments. Just pass it by.

Guest- Don’t worry, that’s normal for newborns. It takes them awhile to learn how to focus properly!

Anonymous (November 24th)- Shame on you! That’s a horrible comment to make about anyone, especially an innocent child! BOTH Aden and Cree are adorable in their own ways! And just you wait, Cree is probably going to grow up to be a heartbreaker (the most “unusual” looking kids- and I mean that with great affection- usually do!)! 🙂

Anonymous on

Traci- Exactly! And even if she HADN’T done a show since she was a kid, some people actualy *gasp* like hearing when their favorite child stars get married and/or have kids (just to be clear, that last part of the sentence was directed at Amelia, not you!).

Laurie on

I didn’t know she practiced Kabbalah, as evidenced by the red string on his left wrist. I thought she was a Christian.

Jojo on

Beautiful and pure perfection.And to those who left negative comment s u all doing real ignorant.Congrats Tamera and Adam on ur handsome lol fella.:-)

tlc on

The red string is a Jamaican custom to ward off evil until the baby is Christened. Isn’t Tamera’s family from the West Indies? IF so, then that’s what the red string is for.

That said, Aden is adorable!!! He is gorgeous and I agree, he looks like Tahj!!!

Aly on

Do they practice Kabbalah?

Aly on

Opps, someone already asked the Kabbalah question!

Doreen on

Well, that’s NOT good….looks like one of those ridiculous red bracelets for Kaballah. She ‘was’ a Christian apparantly!

InaT on

Aden is beautiful and a precious creation from GOD, and GOD WILL PROTECT HIM,NOT A PIECE OF RED STRING.much Blessings to Tamara and Adam.

george m on

sweet baby

Anonymous on

Too freaking cute!!

Anonymous on

Dorie- Read TLC’s post. I think her explaination is probably more likely, especially considering that Kabalah bracelets usually featurw a string that hangs down, and this one clearly doesn’t.

J on

Dorie and InaT, grow up…

destiny on

He is adorable ps.love your show.

Chrissy on

He’s so adorable! I’m a new mommy this year too, he’ll be 8 months tomorrow, I know how amazing the feeling of being a new mom is now. Take care of him, he is a treasure, they all are. Congrats Adam and Tamera!

chantol brown on

Her son is so cute. Hes already doing the peace sign. Hes showing all the other babies out there how to be cool.

Octavia on

He is a blessing… I love your shows.

Thanks for sharing! Many Blessings!

deb on

Are you people for real, this girl just brought a beautiful baby boy that God bless her with, made in his image, and all you people can do is stand by and criticized, why she have a piece of string around his hand. That is her and her husband business. congratulation to you and your husband. May god continue to bless you with Long marriage life and many more beautiful babies. Tamara you looked beautiful pregnant.

tk on

LadyCris58 on

Aww, him so cute. He does look like a little butterball. Congrats, Housley family. Keep up the good work. Follow your instincts, and may God continue to bless you in ways beyond that which you can imagine or ask.
