Tamron Hall and her baby boy, Moses, grace the cover of the latest issue of Parents magazine. The TV host and her son are featured in a cute photo shoot that is accompanied by a very powerful and honest interview about being a working mother.
Tamron told the publication that she is not ashamed to leave baby Moses to go host her show.
She confessed: “I don’t feel bad about saying goodbye to Moses. It’s the reality of being a working mom. I also love my job.” The journalist went on to praise her mother, Mary Newton, who travels from Texas to babysit Moses.

She also spoke about delegating to her husband: “I recently said to my husband [Steven Greener], ‘Do you think those paper towels just magically appear?’ I have this ‘I can handle it all’ attitude, but I’m trying to stop. Not as a punishment to Steven, but as a lesson to myself. I have a partner and should pass off some of the household management.”
Tamron revealed that she makes time for her son by working from home on Fridays: “I try to arrange my calls during his naps, but it’s a juggle. I used to feel guilty for using my phone around him, but I can’t put my team on hold because I’m playing with my son, right? That’s not fair to them either. So I just keep calls quick.”
She also got real and revealed the only reason why she would leave her job: “I also love my job. I mean, if I hit the Powerball, would they hear from me again? Probably not. But I try not to focus on the leaving part too much. I just give Moses a kiss and go.”

Talk show host #TamronHall is our March cover mom! The 49-year-old #momboss has had a busy year: She got married, had her first baby (now 9-month-old Moses), and launched her own talk show, the #TamronHallShow! "I don’t mind Instagram, with all its filters, as long as we also get real and say, 'Do you know how many pictures I took before I posted this one?'" Tamron says. "If we all just rip off our masks and say, 'Damn it, this is hard,' we can release the pressure we unnecessarily endure. We’re all just doing the best we can." 🙌❤️ Tap the #linkinbio to find out what a typical day in Tamron's working-mom life looks like and how she juggles it all—or at least, how she tries. #mombossenergy 📸: @taomeitao
