ABC/Troy HarveyTamron Hall became a mother for the first time earlier this year at the age of 48, and she says having her son created an even stronger bond with her own mother.
Hall remembers when she gave birth to her son Moses in April, it was a very special moment when her mom arrived at the hospital.
“To watch my mother care for my son and care for me…she’s always been my best friend, but I didn’t know I could love her so much as a woman,” Hall told Michael Strahan Friday on ABC’s Good Morning America. “I started crying watching my mom just hold my son. It was powerful.”
Hall says she wanted to spend every moment with her son, but a friend advised her it was best for the nurses to take him away when she went to sleep.
“So the first night I was like, ‘No, this is my baby, I’ve waited all this time!’ The second night I was like, ‘Bye boo. I’ll see you later,’” Hall said.
“It was the best advice and that just came from my friend opening up, saying, ‘My mother advice to you is to let him go, get that rest, because you have to take care of yourself.’”
Meanwhile, the Emmy nominee’s self-titled syndicated talk show debuts on Monday, and she’s looking forward to covering a variety of topics, including relationships.
“The first thing someone will ask you, ‘Who are you dating? You want a date? I got a cousin, What you got going on?’ Well, we are going to talk about relationships.” Hall said. “The highs and the lows of it. What it means to date when you’re 45 and beyond “
