Feeling her best from the inside out has always been Tia's goal since welcoming baby No. 2, and in a 2018 interview with E! News she expanded on that philosophy.

Tia added, "I'm just really taking my time, and I really want to be an example out there for women. It's OK if you don't lose weight fast or rather quickly. It's OK if you still have a belly bump. That's what happens. It's natural. It's normal. You don't have to kill yourself trying to get to some place that takes time. I'm about focusing on my babies and enjoying her growth."

In addition to raising baby Cairo, Tia and husband Cory Hardrict are also proud parents to 9-year-old Cree Hardrict.

Tia reflected on the joys of motherhood and her kids' bond in a recent Instagram post, writing, "Seeing the #love that these two have for each other. It's so #beautiful to witness. Puts the biggest smile on my face and just melts my heart. #cree you are such an incredible big brother to your sister. The way #cairo smiles and #laughs is priceless."
