Tamera Mowry-Housley: I Go ‘Back and Forth’ on Having Another Baby

04/19/2016 at 03:15 PM ET

Being a twin, Tamera Mowry-Housley has always had company. But when she gave birth to now 9-month-old daughter Ariah Talea, her son Aden had a little bit of trouble adjusting to his new sister.

“At first he was a little jealous,” she told PEOPLE at Milk + Bookies Story Time Celebration event in Downtown Los Angeles.

“For a year-and-a-half he had all the attention and here is this other little baby that comes in and now she’s getting most of the attention. I nursed for about eight months so it was her and me for a very long time.”

Luckily for Mowry-Housley, 37, and her husband Adam Housley, their son Aden, 3, quickly grew out of that phase. “That was a little bit of an interesting transition, but now he absolutely loves his sister. He’s an amazing help,” she says.

Tamera Mowry-Housley: Daughter Ariah Said ‘Dada’ Before ‘Mama’

02/21/2016 at 03:00 PM ET

It’s been eight months since Tamera Mowry-Housley gave birth to baby Ariah Talea and the time has just flown by.

“I can’t believe I have another child,” The Real co-host told reporters Saturday at the 2016 Make-up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild Awards, where she was serving as a presenter. “It’s nuts! It happened so quickly but I’m glad I did it.”

Not only has the time sped by, but her daughter has been gaining new skills quicker than the family expected. “She’s sitting up, she’s babbling, she loves to giggle and she says ‘mama’ and ‘dada,’ ” says Mowry-Housley who is okay with the fact that her daughter didn’t learn to say mom first.

“She said dad first,” the actress explains. “It’s because it’s phonetically easier to say ‘dada.’ But [our son] Aden said ‘mama’ first which is rare.”

Tamera Mowry-Housley Begins Her Post-Baby Fitness Journey: ‘It’s D Day’

10/20/2015 at 01:15 PM ET

Tamera Mowry-Housley is ready to kick it into high gear.

The talk show host shared a selfie Monday on Instagram, commemorating day one of getting back to her pre-baby figure.

“Fat be gone … this momma’s about to get it,” Mowry-Housley, 37, wrote. “I always allow myself three months to heal after a c-section. It allows me enough time to focus on being a new momma again and my baby. Additionally, to allow a steady milk flow for my baby.”

She continues, “Once those are established. It’s time to start working out. It’s D day. Here we go!”

Tamera Mowry-Housley Introduces Daughter Ariah: ‘She’s My Mini-Me’

09/04/2015 at 08:45 PM ET

Tamera Mowry-Housley‘s newborn daughter, Ariah Talea, takes after her mom in more ways than one.

“She’s my mini-me,” The Real co-host, 37, tells PEOPLE of her 8-week-old baby girl. “She looks so much like me as a baby, it’s scary! She has my eyes and my cheeks — I had the droopy little cheeks.”

Ariah — whose name means “Lion of God” — also has a similar personality to her mom.

“We’re both calm,” says Mowry-Housley. “She’s a mellow baby, and the coolest thing is [my 2½-year-old son] Aden is high-energy and [my husband] Adam is high-energy, so I think we’re balanced now.”

Tamera Mowry-Housley Jokes ‘Watch What You Pray For’ After Giving Birth to 10-Lb. Baby

08/21/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Tamera Mowry-Housley never thought her wishes for a “chunky, plushy baby” would result in newborn daughter Ariah Talea weighing over 10 lbs. at birth.

“You have to watch what you pray for!” Mowry-Housley, 37, jokes to PEOPLE. “Ariah’s a big girl, but I love the fatness. I love to show off her rolls and I dress her in rompers for summer. She has the chubbiest legs!”

Described by the former Sister Sister star as “sweet, precious and scrumptious,” 6-week-old Ariah is dressed almost exclusively in pink clothing and tutus by her mama.

“I can’t stop kissing her! And dressing her is so much fun,” Mowry-Housley says. “With boys, you have to be more creative clothes-wise. There’s just so much more to choose from when you have a girl.”

Tamera Mowry-Housley: Why I Named My Daughter Ariah Talea

Tamera Mowry-Housley didn’t have to search through any baby books to find a name for her daughter, Ariah Talea.

The actress and co-host of The Real had already made up her mind — long before she was even pregnant.

“I had always known that I wanted Aden to be my son’s name, and since Adam [Housley] began with an A as well, I wanted to keep our family tradition alive of starting my children’s names with the same letter,” the new mom of two writes on her website.

“So it worked out that before Adam and I were even married, we stumbled across a shop named Araya. I stopped and immediately told him I loved the name and wanted that to be my future daughter’s name.”

Although the couple did consider other choices — including Arriana and Aliana — they kept coming back to the same name. But Mowry-Housley wasn’t completely sold on the spelling: She wanted to change it to help with people’s pronunciation of the moniker.
