tamera mowry*Just a bit under a year after her sister gave birth, Tamera Mowry-Housley is pregnant and she and her husband Adam are more than excited, calling it a miracle.

“Adam and I are excited about having a baby and the blessing that he or she will bring to our lives and to our family and friends,” she confirmed to PEOPLE. “We can’t wait to meet this little miracle!”

The couple was married last May and told the press they weren’t planning to become parents any time soon. But it looks like their plans have taken a different turn.

“It’s just so beautiful there and you get a whole new perspective on life, the things that really matter,” said Mowry-Housley about the couple’s recent trip to Africa. “Adam and I looked at each other and said, ‘Why wait?’”

Tamera is actually now in her second trimester and revealed that the first three months were a bit rocky with morning sickness and other prenatal issues. But now things are better and she’s looking forward to the rest of the journey.
