Tia Mowry-Hardrict has reservations about her son, Cree, joining “the business.”
The Instant Mom star knows firsthand what it’s like to grow up in the limelight, thanks to her super successful series, Sister Sister.
“I have déjà vu moments everyday. My childhood was here at Paramount Studios,” Tia told Access Hollywood of the place she filmed her show as a teen.
“It is the perfect show for me. That’s one of the reasons why I really wanted to take on this role because it’s the first role where I’m actually able to play a mom. I’m a mom to a 2-year-old right now, and I’m able to use those experiences,” she said of Instant Mom.
“It’s been more than three years since I’ve been in front of a live audience. I miss it,” she said. “I still get nervous. Every single time I step in front of an audience, I get these butterflies.”
“It’s in his blood,” she said of the son she shared with actor, Cory Hardict. “I want him to finish college and go to school. He can do whatever he wants after that. If that’s what he wants to do and he’s verbalizing it to me, I’d have to support him, but it’s not my goal for him right now.”
Despite her concerns, she doesn’t blame the business for child stars gone bad.
“It’s definitely the parenting and the parenting skills, but also I think there has to be some sense of dysfunction before all of that came about. I don’t think it’s fair to just blame it on the business and the pressure of the business. There has to be some type of dysfunction brewing before they get there.”
