The former Sister, Sister star gave birth to son Cree last June (11) and was back filming U.S. TV series The Game in September (11) - but she was distraught to be parted from her baby boy as she shot the show.
She tells People.com, ""There's a lot of things going on in your mind as a new mom. When you go to work, you're spending time and hours away from your child, and I would find myself crying and feeling guilty that I was not there.
""I had to change my perspective on the whole thing and say, 'I am doing this for my son. I am working to give him a better life, to provide him and my family with the best.'""
Mowry now takes young Cree on set with her - and she admits the cast and crew are enamoured with the tot.
She adds, ""I feel blessed to be able to bring my son to work and to share with him what mommy does at such a young age. Now, it's like second nature to him. He's in the hair and makeup trailer and seeing mommy get ready... he always puts a smile on my face, keeps me at ease. And he was the hit of the whole set. Everybody loves Cree so much.""
