Tia Mowry is an open book in a new interview where she shares her struggles to conceive the second time around. While she and husband Cory Hardrict share 6-year-old son, Cree, the actress was unsure if she would be able to have another child due to her challenges with endometriosis, according to The Jasmine Brand.

“I didn’t think I’d be able to have a second child, and it’s been over seven years since my first pregnancy. I put it off, but I did want to have another child. I didn’t let my infertility issues define me or define what my goals were and what I wanted out of life.”

Mowry revealed her endometriosis diagnosis to PEOPLE back in 2016, where she shared that she and Hardrict were trying to get pregnant  without expecting too much.

“[We’re] trying, but I don’t want to put too much hope into it. I don’t want to be let down.”

The couple are expecting a baby girl this Spring.
