The show ‘Sister, Sister’ was made specifically for Tia and Tamera

Both Tia and her twin Tamera started competing in talent shows from a young age. When the girls were 12, they convinced their parents to move to Los Angeles so they could pursue acting careers.

And they were obviously successful. Tia and Tamera rose to fame starring in the sitcom Sister, Sister, which told the story of twin sisters who were separated at birth and reunited in their teen years. The series was made just for them when a producer caught a glimpse of the girls on the set of Full House.

Tia Mowery has the sweetest love story with her husband

After enjoying a successful television career, Tia Mowery moved on to marriage, motherhood, and figuring out the next chapter of her life. She met her future husband Cory Hardrict and the two took things slow for a long time without getting serious too quickly.

“We courted each other for about a year,” Tia she explained in OK! “We didn’t go on dates with just him and I, there were other people around. We waited a year to kiss.”

But eventually they did kiss, then they got married and started a family. After dating for six years, Tia and Cory wed on April 20, 2008. They welcomed son Cree Taylor Hardrict in 2011 and daughter Cairo Tiahna Hardrict in 2018.

They both put in equal work as parents

Instead of sticking with strict roles in their family, both Tia and Cory pitch in to raise their two adorable kids, with each contributing whatever is needed.

“We don’t put gender roles on our marriage and our relationship. If I’m working a lot and Cory’s home, he will put Cree to bed, and if dishes need to be washed, he will wash them,” Tia told HuffPost Live in 2015. “So it’s not like, ‘Oh, I’m going to wait until my wife gets home and she’s going to be doing all that.’”

And similarly, Tia has been known to throw a ball around with her son in the backyard. “I have goals and aspirations, and I believe that you can go after your dreams and it can work if you have someone there that’s supporting you,” she explained.

She doesn’t care what people think

Tia Mowry-Hardrict is raising her family the way she wants without caring what people think. For example, she faced some backlash over co-sleeping with her kids for an extended period of time (even from her own mother). But Tia and Cory made that important choice for their family together.

“My 1-year-old, ever since she was born, she was always in our bed,” she told Today. “My son was in our bed until he was 4. My husband’s fine with it. If he was not fine with it, maybe we would (not)… but he is so cool with it.”

There will always be some haters, but it’s clear that Tia Mowry and her family are happy, healthy, and thriving!
