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.

06/16/2015 at 07:15 PM ET

A stack of books, an impeccable nursery: Tamera Mowry-Housley started off her first pregnancy with a plan.

But now that she’s pregnant with a sibling — a girl! — for 2½-year-old son Aden John Tanner, the mom-to-be is discovering a whole new side to the experience.

“I remember being in Aden’s nursery before he was born, making sure everything was clean and tidy,” Mowry-Housley, 36, says in the July issue of American Baby.

“I was with [my twin sisterTia [Mowry-Hardrict] and she started chuckling. When I asked her why she was laughing, she said, ‘Enjoy the room and how it looks now, because once you have the baby, his stuff is going to be all over the place.’ ”

She adds, “Of course, she was right!”

Tia Mowry-Hardrict: Tamera’s Giving Me Baby Fever!

04/12/2015 at 03:50 PM ET

Tia Mowry-Hardrict has a case of “baby fever,” even though it’s sister Tamera Mowry-Housley who’s about to give birth.

“Oh my God, I am so excited. We just had the baby shower and it was so beautiful, she looks great. I got her tutus,” the actress, 36, told PEOPLE at Saturday night’s TV Land Awards.

“But she has so much energy,” she added. “We’re really excited to have a girl come into the family because we have two boys. She’s going to be so spoiled. I can’t wait — it’s definitely giving me baby fever. I think, ‘Okay, maybe I can do this again.’ ”

It wasn’t any one thing, she said, that let them know a girl was coming into the family. It was the lack of things.

04/09/2015 at 09:00 PM ET

Let’s be real: Tamera Mowry-Housley‘s baby shower was fit for a princess.

The mom-to-be was joined by 50 close family and friends to celebrate the pending arrival of her baby girl, her second child with husband Adam Housley, in a pink-themed baby shower at Casa del Mar in Santa Monica, California, on Saturday.

Mowry-Housley, 36, had taken a hands-off approach to the big event, giving free rein to celeb party planner Mindy Weiss. And when The Real cohost walked in, she was in awe of the whimsical space filled with pink and white balloons from Glam Fete.

“She didn’t give Mindy much direction other than to make it girly,” a guest tells PEOPLE. “When she arrived in the room, she was physically blown away by how gorgeous the set up was.”

Tamera Mowry-Housley: Why I Didn’t Have to Tell Tia I Was Pregnant

03/02/2015 at 06:45 PM ET

Tamera Mowry-Housley may have been the first to get pregnant with her second child, but it was Tia Mowry-Hardict who beat her to the big reveal.

“We have this thing where we wait until eight weeks because we want to make sure everything is okay,” Mowry-Housley, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“But my sister gets it because we’re twins. She just called me and she was like, ‘Are you pregnant?’ And I said, ‘Yep, I am!’ ”

Breaking the news to her husband Adam Housley however, was much more of a surprise. The mom-to-be hid her positive pregnancy stick in her purse and let the senior news correspondent at Fox News discover the happy news on his own.

“I surprised him at work and then I gave my purse to Adam and I was like, ‘Adam, I can’t find my keys. I’m having a really hard time … Did I put them in my purse?’ ” she recalls. “Then he was looking through my purse and saw the pregnancy test.”

She adds, “Adam is always shocked and excited all at the same time. It’s quite a sight to see!”
