EBONY: Tia, you have this great new book out called “Oh, Baby! But when you have a child you have to learn how to slow down and just be patient. I really, enjoy just going to the park and spending an hour with him at the park now.
” in which you give women the inside scoop on the side of pregnancy that people and doctors don’t really prepare you for. At the park, I’m just another mommy hanging out with the other moms and watching our kids play and I love that.
I never knew how excited I would become just when I see the ultrasound.
That’s my way of seeing him and I love that and I can’t wait to meet him. When you don’t have a child and you’re a hard worker who’s always on the go, you’re on a fast pace.
We said to God, ‘This is who we are, I know you take us as we are, our faults, our fears, our joys, our hope as a couple and have your way.’ I tried the ‘missionary dating’ [in the past] where you have a person with a great heart who you think is perfect and wonderful except for this one important area that you try to change. There were many nights of heartbreak and crying, and that’s not what God wants for us. He is the most generous human being I have ever met. He’s a family man and he’s always giving back to God. We’re not perfect by any means, but that makes us beautiful as well. We have our disagreements, but that comes along with marriage. EBONY: Of course, your relationship as sisters is the one we’ve loved to watch grow over the years.
