Tia Mowry Is Tired Of People Asking If She’s Pregnant Just Because She’s Gained Weight

Tia Mowry wants every to know, for the last time, that she’s not pregnant. She’s just happy. So please stop asking if her weight gain is from a pregnancy and not food.

Recently Mowry appeared on Huff Post Live to talk about body shaming and the comments she’s received on Instagram. The comments that she’s tired of.

“I am not pregnant, I am just happy. I’ve gained these extra 10 [or] 15 pounds because of my cooking show. … I’m just enjoying life and when I want to drop the pounds, I will, but right now I’m happy with who I am,” Mowry told host Nancy Redd. “But it is a form of body shaming, I will say that, and it’s pretty unfortunate. …We live in a society that is so obsessed with being perfect … why can’t we just be us?”

“We need to be more supportive with body images, especially with women, showing that all sizes are beautiful,” she said. “And I’m talking about in magazines, advertisement[s] in regard to what’s sexy and what’s not sexy. We all need to be a little more supportive of each other. I think if we start there, we’ll see a difference.”

Mowry, who is a far stretch from being ‘overweight’, has been under a barrage of comments on Instagram with people asking why she’s gained weight and if she’s actually pregnant with her second child.

It’s amazing that people are not only rude, but also showing how bad they make it seem for women to gain weight.

Take a look at the interview below:

    When I first saw her on the new cooking show the first thing I thought was about how happy and free she looked.

    people need to stop. it’s like, you gain weight…they complain. you lose weight…they call you sickly. give me a blasted break already. she looks fine, she’s happy & healthy and her hubby loves her. maybe her critics need to go get themselves some happy and they’d be better off.

    How can society undo the damage done by making women fit into a one-size-fits-all mold? I’m glad people are becoming more aware that women aren’t built the same, and for those minding Tia’s life, maybe they need to seek one of their own.

    The beauty standards of society are screwed up. I think she looks lovely.

    She made many excellent points. Body shaming is one of the most evil acts that someone can do. The evil, ignorant people (who are being disrespectful towards Tia Mowry) has to realize that women exist in many shapes and sizes. These women are beautiful. Women are entitled to live their own lives and Tia gaining weight is not the end of the world. Corrupt, Western beauty standards has hurt so many people. We want a progressive society where people of a diversity of sizes are treated with dignity and with respect. Beauty is not about shaming people. Beauty is compassion and respecting human diversity.
