Tamera Mowry-Housley is ‘in complete awe’ of newborn son Aden Housley, so much so that she has penned an open letter to the one-month-old tot.

“It’s been over a month now, and I am still in complete awe of my beautiful baby boy. The love I have for this chubby, squirmy, adorable little bundle of joy is hard to put into words, but I wanted to try and capture it so that down the road, he knows exactly how I am feeling right now,” Tamera writes.

The new mom adds, “I decided to hand write him a letter to welcome him into the world and tell him just how much he means to me. And since my amazing fans have been there with me every step of the way, I wanted to share the letter with all of you too!”

Below is part of the letter that Tamera wrote on her and sister Tia’s official website, TiaandTameraofficial.com :

Dear Aden,

You’ll get used to mommy’s tears eventually. I cry at everything. Once I heard I became pregnant with you, I felt a joy that I have never felt before and cried tears of joy. Mommy has wanted to be a mommy ever since she can remember. Once I met your father Adam and we knew we were going to be married, if we were going to have a boy I, me, knew your name instantly. To add to the joy of your arrival, discovering that you were a boy, mommy was even more elated. We had the perfect name for you Aden!

  1. An fascinating discussion will be worth comment. I’m sure that you require to write much a lot more about this subject, might possibly not definitely be a taboo subject but generally men and women are not enough to communicate in on such topics. To another location. Cheers

  3. Tamera don’t listen to no-one, your baby is beautiful and definitely has your nose! And you shouldn’t be scared about how his school life will be because I’m still in middle school and no-one goes by race anymore so i think he will be just fine 😀

  4. Tamera, my daughter is white, and her husband is black. They have the most beautiful, sweet, lovely 3 year old daughter. She is very light skinned, but has her daddys brown eyes, and she does have curly brown hair. Softer than her dads hair. She looks like her Mommy but has her daddys eyes. She is so beautiful. My only problem I have is when they have to fill out forms, for instances at the doctors office. She asks the nurse what she should put down on the forms. The snotty nurse said…Black. I disagree with that, not because I care if she is black, but she is half white. I think she should be able to check both. What do others in that situation feel?

    • One drop rule!!!! You should learn more about AA history. Almost all AA’s have European blood but we’re still black people. Black people are mixed race people. When will people learn we’re not PURE African. Black = White+African+Native American.

      Your granddaughter will grow up to become a beautiful black woman of mixed ancestry. There’s nothing wrong with being a black woman. Ask Halle Berry, Alicia Keys and Tamera Housely. Just accept it dammit.

  5. I am white with blonde hair and blue eyes and very fair and my daughter’s father is half white and half black. Our daughter came out white in complexion but she does tan and has brown hair and brown eyes. Most people think she is just white. When you have this kind of combination the baby can come out light or tan. You never know but her baby is 75% white so it makes sense that he would be on the lighter side. Even though my daughter looks white most people wouldn’t think I was her mother if we were in a crowd because she has dark hair and dark eyes. When it’s your child it really doesn’t matter what they look like you love them regardless. He is beautiful and he is loved. That is the most important thing.

  6. Red string bracelets have been spotted on several celebrities, launching what seems like a religious Hollywood fashion craze based on the practice of Kabbalah. This has caused some people to think that the red string is associated only with Kabbalists. But other religions also believe red strings serve a purpose.

  7. Hi Tamera,
    Congrats to you and Adam on your newbundle of joy. Children are a blessing. Wishing you the very best with your beautiful baby,handsome husband,wonderful life.

  8. Wearing a red string for good luck/good fortune it is NOT an island “thing”, though people from the islands may wear one. Many different cultures, races and ethnicities wear it. LOOK IT UP it is NOT a bad thing. My mum put the red on my right ankle as an infant and I still wear one there the only difference is my mum made an ankle bracelet out of rubies for my last birthday. My older brothers and cousins wear the red which is entwined in a bangle my mum made for them. My little cousin and brothers still wear the “string” on their ankles.

    Along with the red string, the black string is also worn by infants. You may not agree with the reasoning, but don’t knock someone else’s culture. The black string is worn because babies are perfect, they are the most perfect gift that YOUR God can grant you, since they are so perfect the black string is put on babies to add some small imperfection to something so perfect that way the babies won’t be cursed by someone’s envy or jealousy. Ask your Indian, Asian and European friends whose ancestors come from Cyrillic (or Romani) countries, they will tell you the same thing, the red string is for good luck/fortune and the black string is put on babies to detract from their perfection.

    Just because these so called celebrities are following the “religion of the moment” does not mean they even know the true history or even why they are doing what they do. These celebrities who follow Kabalistic teachings are not following the doctrine which basically states that all parts of us/nature are entwined. Wearing a red string but living in a way opposite to Kabbalah makes no sense (at least to me).

    BTW, we do not follow the Kabbalah, we are Catholic but we recognize the various races, cultures and ethnicities that make us who we are. My mum was raised from birth to ten by a nanny that was Paris born of Haitian descent and along with her Catholic beliefs which we shared, she brought some of her culture to our family which in turn my mum passed down to us.

    Just saying, before you knock something or speak negatively about it, do the research.

  9. Aden is such an adorable and healthy baby. I have loved Tia and Tamera since Sister Sister and am very elated that they decided to share their lives with us on their show Tia & Tamera. Some of the comments about both of their babies is totally disrespectful. Babies don’t deserve to be labeled or talked about like this. Cree was such a beautiful baby also. Some of these ppl on here need to seriously get a life!!!

    Keep up the Good Work Tia & Tamera <3

  10. I love and relate to Tamera’s letter to Aden. I felt the exact same way with each of my four children. Babies are a blessing and a miracle.
    And I’ve always appreciated both Tamera and Tia’s positive outlook on life. They have a good wholesome family. I wish there were more families like theirs.

  11. that “red string” has NOTHING to do with being christian. it was a jewish custom.
    dating back to biblical times! associated with Judaism’s Kabbalah, to ward off misfortune brought about by an “evil eye”

  12. Not understanding BCK u modified silly things but will allow someone to make an ignorant saying she “got her wish for a white baby” REALLY? Anywho that baby is gorgeous, so hapy for Tamera & Adam.

  13. Why do people have to be so ignorant?? I’m not asking this to cause controversy.. I really want to know!! I mean is Tamera husband, Aden’s dad not white?! And Tamera herself being half white possibly the reason little Aden might be so fair and may stay that way. Who still questions genetics?? It almost sounded like someone got offended because Aden might look like his dad o_O Someone got highly upset on another site I frequent, because posters were complimenting a beautiful baby boy because his hair was curly and his eyes happen to be green. They stated we are “dissing” ourselves and losing touch SMH

    • Thank you. I thought the same thing. The HATERS forget that the Mowry sisters are half White!!!they want to crucify Tamara for having a baby that is 75% white.

  14. The forehead, shape of his eyes, cleft chin are all his dads…maybe over time he will grow to resemble his mom, for right now he favors his dad

    • I don’t think it’s ’cause “he looks white” I think, at the moment, Aden has Adam’s face. There isn’t anything wrong with that, it is HIS SON, TOO, after all.

  15. Beautiful words for a beautiful baby!!!
    Totally off context but does anyone know Adam’s heritage…is Housley a Hebrew surname? I’m only asking because Tamera and Aden are wearing red strings around their wrists. I’ve seen Madonna and her kids wearing a red string and they study Kabbalah…I could also be completely generalizing and maybe they study Hinduism (Hindus also wear red strings around their wrists)…..

  16. Aden is …. well he is still at that stage where he is just a baby and looks alot like most other babies of the same age
    Anyway I can tell that he is truly loved and that is a wonderful for their is nothing like growing up in a loving supportive environment. I wish that for every child. That and good health :)

  17. Aden is one beautiful little angel!!! I can feel the love Tamera has for her little blessing right through this picture… GOD is GOOD!!

  18. Aden is just mesmerizing!! These girls are so relatable. I see so much of them (and their love for their families) in myself.
