Tia had previously expressed her fears she would be unable to have another child due to her endometriosis. The condition causes tissue that normally grows inside the uterus to grow outside of it. Symptoms include pelvic pain, cramping, heavy bleeding and infertility problems.

"There's a little bit of a challenge there, but I will say this: I am working on my diet," she told People magazine in 2016. "[We're] trying, but I don't want to put too much hope into it. I don't want to be let down."

She revealed that she followed a strict diet to help combat inflammation in her body. "I knew that I desperately wanted to have children and after speaking with a nutritionist that came recommended by my doctor, I was reassured that with the right eating habits and lifestyle changes (no sugar, no carbs!), I would have a better possibility of getting pregnant. I started to see a light at the end of the tunnel."
