Tia Mowry isn’t pregnant; she’s only gained a little weight because of her new cooking show.

“I am not pregnant, I am just happy. I’ve gained these extra 10 [or] 15 pounds because of my cooking show,” she said during an interview with HuffPost Live. “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’s cooking show,  “Tia Mowry at Home,” airs on the Cooking Channel.

She continued to say that she was offended by the shaming going on online.

“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,” said Mowry.”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 had also called out the body shamers on Instagram, posting a picture of a pregnancy test that read “just fat.”
