Jerome Dishes on Tamera & Adam; Has a Message for the New Parents
Now that Tamera Mowy-Housley and husband Adam's bundle of joy, Aden John Tanner, is finally here, we checked in with the "third twin" Jerome Wiggins for his take on the happy news!
When did you find out about the big news?
Early this morning. Adam and I have been texting.
How are you feeling this very moment?
I'm relieved for Tamera because it's been a really long journey. She's an amazing sister, friend and cousin, so I know she's going to be an amazing mom. I'm overjoyed and so excited for Tamera and Adam.
Have you had the chance to meet Aden yet?
No, I have not. I'm actually not it town. I'm so mad! But it's my plan to come to Los Angeles ASAP. I would love to be there within the next few weeks to see Aden. I'm so glad that I can say his name now! Of course, I've known what Tamera and Adam were going to name him for a while, but I had to wait for the big reveal.
What do you think of the name Aden?
I love it! Aden sounds strong and regal—just like his mother. I call Tamera "Princess," not because she's a diva but because she's regal. Not to leave out Adam, but you know. The name Cree suits Tia's personality and the name Aden suits Tamera's personality.
What are you looking forward to now that the baby's here?
Now, I get to go shop! It's time to shop now that he's here and weighs over 9 lbs. I had a feeling he would be big! I have no idea where I'm going to start, but I'm excited about being buying stylish things for Aden.
If you can impart one piece of advice to the new parents, what would it be?
I would say, Train up a child in the way that he should go. That's in Scripture, Proverbs 22:6. Adam is an amazing man; Tamera is an amazing woman. Whatever Aden encounters later in life, he can always look back at the ways his mom and dad trained him early on. When he's old, he will not depart from their teachings.
