Add Tia Mowry to the growing list of celebs who have showed off their pregnant bellies in the nude. Tia says she’s embracing the sexuality of the pregnancy. “I know that there are people out there who say that there is nothing sexy about being pregnant. Then there are some people who embrace the sexuality. I feel empowered; I feel sexy.”
Tia tells PEOPLE magazine she was inspired to pose for the photo by her mother who regrets not having taken such a shot herself.
The actress, who’s expecting a baby boy on July 3, says she is nervous and having trouble sleeping.”I have sciatica so I’ve gotten those pregnancy pillows. That doesn’t seem to be working for me….They say that the baby should kick 10 times every two hours. I’m obsessed with counting how many times the baby’s kicking. So around one o’clock in the morning I’m counting in my head, not sleeping!”
Tia’s pregnancy will be documented when she and twin sister Tamera returns with their new reality show, Tia & Tamera Take 2, on the Style Network. The show will also show Tamera as she prepares to get married.
