Tia Mowry and Beyonce appear to have similar feelings about being first-time moms.
Mowry gave birth to her first child, son Cree, in June 2011 and is an author of a new book that offers pregnancy advice.
"I think that being a mom is extremely sexy," Mowry told OnTheRedCarpet.com host Rachel Smith on the set of a photo shoot for Vibe Vixen magazine earlier this week. "I find that a lot of women after they have their babies, they feel empowered - and that's how I am. After I had my baby, I just felt extremely sexy, I mean, you've given life, and it's extremely empowering."
Pop star Beyonce welcomed her first child, daughter Blue Ivy, in January. She made similar comments about motherhood when commenting on her new title as People's "Most Beautiful Woman" of 2012, saying: "I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth. I have never felt so connected and I never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth and never so proud of myself."
The 33-year-old actress married her husband Cory Hardrict in April 2008 in Santa Barbara. She went on to explain how she plans on being a role model for new mothers everywhere.
"I'm a mom now, and I just can't wait to get out there and show that, you know, moms can be hot and sexy too," she said.
The Mowry twins rose to fame with the long-running 1990s sitcom "Sister, Sister" and now star in the Style network reality series "Tia & Tamera," which showcased Tia Mowry's pregnancy and weight loss struggle. The show returns for a second season in June.
Aside from her reality show, she also stars in the BET series "The Game." Her new book, "Oh, Baby!: Pregnancy Tales and Advice from One Hot Mama to Another," is set for release on May 15.
While the actress seems to be managing her full plate, she says there's one thing she forgets to make time for - herself.
"I really don't have a lot of 'Me Time,'" Mowry said. "I really have to make way for that. But I feel a little guilty sometimes about having 'Me time.' I don't know why. I feel like if I'm just taking a nap or getting my nails done or getting a massage, I feel guilty. I'ml like, I should be with my son."
"My husband is always telling me, 'Tia, you really need to just kind of take care of yourself first, and when you give attention to yourself, you make a better mom. A rested mom is a better mom,"" she said. "I do need to work on that more."
Mowry did not rule out the possibility of spending less time on acting projects and more on being a mother and helping other moms.
"I would love to continue to just educate women about how great it is to be a mom, how sometimes it's scary being a mom, what's it like to be raising a child and working at the same time," she said. "It's definitely something that I would like to kind of start focusing on."
