Tia Mowry Defends Her Status as a Cool Mom to Pregnant Sister Tamera
Tia Mowry is one cool mom, despite what her twin sister, Tamera, might say.
Welcoming her son, Cree, with husband Cory Hardrict in June 2011, the former Sister, Sister star tries to convince her twin -- expecting her own child later this year -- that being a mom doesn't mean women can't let loose once in a while.
"I want to go out dancing. The nanny's coming, so I'll have someone watching Cree," Tia, 33, says in a preview clip from Monday's episode of Tia & Tamera, detailing her preferred plans during the sisters' upcoming trip to New York City.

"I don't think I can party with you, because in my mind, you're a mom now," her sister replies.
Taken aback, Tia tries to convince her expectant sis that motherhood can be cool -- and she's proof positive. "Just because people are moms, it doesn't mean their life is over," she reasons. "They can still go out and have fun. Moms have the best fun!"
As her son prepares to celebrate his first birthday, Tia can't even remember what her life was like before her little boy came along. I'm like, 'Whoa, where has the time gone? He's not this tiny little newborn anymore!" she tells Us Weekly. "I'm already missing that stage. So I can't imagine when he's, like, 18 and he's going away to college -- I'm going to miss him! I can't even think about that right now."
Tia & Tamera airs Monday at 8 p.m. (EST) on STYLE.
