Tia Mowry isn't pregnant -- rather, she's just "happy."
The 37-year-old actress talked toHuffPost Liveon Monday, when she explained why she's been offended by the constant pregnancy rumors surrounding her. Mowry said she's not currently pregnant with baby number two, but has gained a couple pounds due to her cooking show, Tia Mowry at Home.
"Guys, I am not pregnant, I am just happy," Mowry stressed. "I've gained these extra -- whatever, 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."
"But it is a form of body shaming, I will say that, and it's pretty unfortunate," she pointed out. "I think that we live in a society that is so obsessed with being perfect. ... Why can't we just be us?"
The pregnancy rumors surrounding Mowry -- who's already a mom to her 4-year-old son, Cree Taylor, with husband, actor Cory Hardrict -- were so prevalent earlier this year, that she hilariously posted a pregnancy test reading "Just fat" on her Instagram in July.
"This is what I say, 'Is that how you love yourself?'" the former Sister, Sister star said about her haters. "It has to stop. We all need to be more supportive of everything -- different religions, different body types, sexual preferences, all of that."
"We need to be more supportive with body images, especially with women, showing that all sizes are beautiful," she continued. "And I'm talking about in magazines, advertisement 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 isn't the only celeb to hit back at her body shamers. In September, 20-year-old supermodel Gigi Hadid called out those ludicrously saying she was too fat to be a runway model after she walked the Versace show during Milan Fashion Week.
"No, I don't have the same body type as the other models in shows. ... I represent a body image that wasn't accepted in high-fashion before, and I'm also very lucky to be supported by the designers, stylists, and editors that I am," Gigi Instagrammed. "Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I'm not asking for special treatment. I'm fitting into the sample sizes."
"Your mean comments don't make me want to change my body," she added. "If I didn't have the body I do, I wouldn't have the career I do. I love that I can be sexy. I'm proud of it."
