Tamron Hall recently heralded her third Mother’s Day celebrations with her one and only son Moses and opened up about why she loves the occasion.
Hall shares her adorable toddler with her loving husband, Steve Greener who she tied the knot with in 2019 following a two-year romance.
The Daytime Emmy Award-winning actress also got candid about navigating the pressures and responsibilities of motherhood amid inspiration from other figures.
Tamron Hall Opens Up On Motherhood And The Importance of Mother’s Days
In a candid interview with PEOPLE on Sunday, May 8, Hall spoke about motherhood and how Mother’s Day offers the opportunity to celebrate mother figures. She said:
“For me, I have three nieces and a nephew who refer to me as their other mom, and I’ve always felt very appreciated on this day by them.”
The “Tamron Hall” star noted that she did not have children early in life, and there are people who played the role of mother figures in her life that need to be honored. She buttressed, “it is an important day for me.”
Hall, who is best friends with her matriarch, said that the role of a mother is vast and has a variety of meanings. She explained:
“I happen to have a son now, but I was a mother figure for those four children all of their lives. The oldest is now 21. And while my mother is, and has always been a very strong presence in my life, I’ve had teachers, aunts, people who went to church with us, who served as a mother figure in my life.”
The “Today’s Take” alum touched on the values of motherhood and how she balances raising her toddler with managing her demanding career.

The TV personality admitted that she is yet to figure out everything but ensures to give her full attention to every moment. She said:
“I don’t know what balance feels like. I know what being present feels like. So for me, some days I feel that I’ve succeeded, and other days, of course, I feel like I’ve fallen short of where I want to be as a mom for Moses.”
Hall’s goal is to be present with her son in every interaction and keep her phone away to give him her time. She called this approach the best.
The talk show host spoke on how mothers tend to measure themselves against unreal standards and battle guilt and shame, which she also felt. She admitted that she is a work in progress, adding:
“But there’s such great advice and such great conversation that we can have with other moms every day to uplift rather than wallow in some of those difficult days. So for me, I don’t know what balance feels like. I just know what it feels like to try.”
Hall also reflected on spending time with Moses and how small moments such as singing with him and listening to his laughter are a more glorious feeling than she could have imagined.

Last November, Hall broke the exciting news that her daytime talk show which airs on ABC, has not only been renewed for a fourth season but a fifth as well.
The “Someone They Knew With Tamron Hall”‘ star took to her Instagram page to share the update with Moses in tow. The toddler showed his support in an adorable Tam Fam shirt under a blazer.
The then 2-year-old humorously became distracted by his juice box while his mother said to the camera that her newest feat would be impossible without her Tam Fam. She continued:
“The Tamron Hall show has been renewed for season 4, and if that’s not big enough, and that is huge, we’re now renewed for season 5, too. So, that’s back-to-back season 4, season 5, two years of the Tamron Hall show.”
Hall encouraged her fans to keep the conversation going and expressed thanks to them, gushing that she was happy to share the news about her double season renewal.
It may come as no surprise to viewers of the show that it was picked up again as it became a fan favorite since its September 2019 premiere.
“Tamron Hall” also earned the eponymous host a Daytime Emmy award in Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host. The founder also received another nomination in the second season.
