She regarded Prince as a best friend. In an interview, she spoke about the influence he made in her life. In the interview, she remembered Prince as an angel and mourned for his death. She said,

"He didn't want people to know all of the ways he helped other people. He did it as this silent angel, including how he helped me in my life on many occasions. … I'm sorry for the world losing his gift, but he's not gone."

She also talked how close she was with Prince and said,

The only other person I spoke with more than Prince is my mother. This the person I communicate with more than anyone

Regretted Not Having A Baby:

In 2016, Tamron made the biggest revelation of her life on the show alongside co-hosts Natalie Morales and Al Roker. The co-hosts were reflecting upon the regrets of their past when she admitted that the biggest regret of her 20’s was not having a baby. She said:

“I really did. The only thing, and this is because we have to be honest on the show … the only thing I would have done is, I would have had a child. I know it’s young, but I would have at least started the process.”

“Not to diminish the spectacular and beautiful journey of parenthood, but don’t make me feel I am half an adult if I don’t have a child. Caring has nothing to do with being a parent. I care because I’m a human being.”
