Blessed with Blue

When we found out I was pregnant Brady and I were over the moon with joy. It was something that we both had wanted for awhile. We both wanted to give Harper a sibling and it’s something she has spent the last year and a half asking for. Brady and I both had said that what’s most important is the baby being healthy. That’s what every parent wants. I have always said, a happy and healthy baby is all I could ask for. So when people started asking us “What are you guys hoping for? A boy or a girl” I honestly said, it truly doesn’t matter. Yes it would be nice to have a boy, since we had a beautiful little girl already. But there was something sweet about having another girl. Brady and I would be able to experience a sister to sister relationship that neither one of us have experienced before. So we truly were very open to either. Again, we just wanted the baby to be healthy. And Harper had many ideas of what she wanted as well. One day it was a girl, the next day it was a boy. I knew she would be happy either way as well.

So, when it came time to finding out… we decided to find out together, the three of us, as a family. Our dear friend Vicki talked with our doctor, found out the sex of our baby then passed that precious info on to another close friend of ours, Scout, who then baked a “reveal” cake as you would call it. Blue inside if it’s a boy and pink inside if it’s a girl. I have to say, when I was pregnant with Harper I knew from day one it was a girl. Truly I did. I knew it, felt it, dreamt about her and just knew it in my gut. And this time around I had that same feeling. I knew what the sex was. But of course was excited to find out if my intuition was right again. (It was!)

We waited till Harper got home from school. We had our talented and close photographer friend Elizabeth Messina photograph the special occasion and Vicki to video it so we could then share with our family the exciting news. As Harper sat between us, cake in front of her… I was overwhelmed with excitement and joy. We took the cake knife and all of us watched as we slid the knife down the center to reveal the beautiful BLUE cake that was inside. “Mommy, it’s blue. It’s blue!” Harper said. “We are having blue!” Tears of joy came running down my face. I hugged and kissed my husband then my daughter. How blessed we feel. Blessed with blue.

So happy for you! We had a boy first and then our daughter…and they are so very different, and yet so very alike! Although they are teens now (17 and 14), I so remember those early years. They are so bittersweet! Soak up this precious time with them, they grow up way too soon.

That made me cry! So sweet! Congrats to you! I had a girl, then a boy, and then another girl. I knew each time as well and dreamed about each of them as well. So amazing to have an intuition and be right each time. Enjoy!!!! Shopping on both sides of the GAP is so much fun!!


What an amazing story. I enjoyed reading every part of it. Wishing you and your family all the best. Xoxo


Congrats to you and your sweet family. My husband and I went thru 7 years of struggle to have a baby and many losses in between. We had a surprise MIRACLE pregnancy and had our baby boy last December. Much to our complete surprise,we are now 6 months pregnant yet again with a little miracle baby girl. We feel so blessed. God is good. Enjoy this wonderful time. There is nothing more beautiful than a pregnant women.


Wow such a beautiful moment, we just had our second baby ( a boy in jan.) we have a little 4 year old girl named Valerie( yes named after your character in 90210) lol -so having a boy was so fun! Let me tell you the transition is interesting,, my daughter still kinda wants to send him back but kissess him right after!!! Funny stuff! Congrats Tiffany and family!! Such a blessing!!!!!

Samantha Merritt

I agree with you totally. When I found out I was pregnant, I knew instantly that I was having a girl. Bella is her name and she is 3 years old. My husband and I tried for almost 11 years to have a child, while we raise my two nephews. So she truly was my miracle. Congrats on your upcoming baby boy. And Harper is gorgeous.


Adorable family love the blue cake. So pretty

Rié | Portobello Design Blog

“We are having blue!” How darling! She is as sweet as she is pretty. Congratulations on your little boy, you won’t believe how sweet they are and just how much they love you. Trust me, one day you will have the flu and he will look up at you and say, “Your pretty momma.” Sigh. You have a lovely family and I pray for you every happiness!! Rié

Hi Tiffani,
I’m such a fan of yours and love all the new photos on your website!! I’m reaching out because I am opening up a “Book Bar” in downtown Long Beach (on The Promenade), called The Brass Lamp; and it’s a fusion of a coffee shop, wine bar, and bookstore… and I will be having a big Grand Opening event on May 23rd, 2015, which will have coffee/wine/beer tastings, cheese/meat plate pairings, desserts, jazz performers, art, and Authors!
I am reaching out because I understand that you are from Long Beach and wanted to see if you’d be interested in participating in the event, either as a sponsor through your brand, or as a celebrity making an appearance.
My mission in creating this bar in downtown Long Beach is to give back to the community with a place where they can hang out, be inspired, and have a forum to promote local artists, musicians, and creative people.

I understand that it’s a far reach to hear back from you. But if this is something that you would consider, we would greatly appreciate your response.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to read this!

I have been a fan for years. I’m 31 now with a 1,5 year old names Major. I LOVED when I saw that you had a show. Might you give some easy advice for a single mom of one to hide veggies and fruits. Major is (I despise the word spoiled) loving his chicken and French fries. I need help!!!!! ;)
