Tia and Tamera Mowry were the child stars of the ABC sitcom Sister, Sister in the 90s. They began the show at 14 years old and were 18 when it ended. Sister, Sister was the story of identical twins separated at birth and reunited as teenagers. The girls and their one parent each, move in together, so that they won't be separated again. The show was a hit on ABC's TGIF line-up and the young girls became instantly famous. Their younger brother, Tahj Mowry also got the acting bug and played Michelle's friend, Teddy, on Full House.

The twins have continued acting as adults, and have remained very close. They are both moms now and cherish their family time together. "Family over everything 🤍 There's nothing better than getting together with my sister @tameramowrytwo and watching our kids play together," Tia recently wrote on Instagram.

Tia Mowry recently announced that she and husband, Cory Hardrict, are divorcing. Although they say it is amicable, her life will surely change a bit.

What Tia Mowry And Cory Hardrict Want Fans To Know

Immediately following the divorce announcement, fans were suspicious of Cory Hardrict, assuming he did something wrong. Tia Mowry has done everything she can to assure people that she is fine and that Cory didn't do anything wrong. She wants the world to know that they still have love for each other.

Cory also makes it clear that there are no hard feelings between them, “I love my beautiful family. I love my kids. I love my wife,” he stated.

Who Are Tia Mowry's Children?

Tia Mowry and Cory Hardrict have two children together - Cree, now 11, and Cairo, now 4.

The couple have said that they will remain friends and co-parent their children. The divorce filing cited "irreconcilable differences" and Tia requested both joint physical and legal custody of their children. Tia has often stated that being a mother to Cree and Cairo is her "biggest accomplishment".

Mom is very proud of son Cree and wrote on his 11th birthday, "Munchkin, you are so funny, full of life, and love." In March 2022, the proud mother announced that Cree was accepted to his "dream school" and how happy she was for him.

Tia refers to daughter Cairo as her "mini me", and posted for her daughter's fourth birthday, "You bring so much love to all of us. Your humor is one of a kind, your laugh is contagious, and that side eye… girlllllll, it's something else. Today (and everyday), we celebrate you baby girl!"

What Tamera Mowry Thinks About Tia's Divorce?

The Mowry sisters have always been super-close. They work together, and they share family time with each other. They have said they are the best of friends.

They are also there for each other during hard times. Tamera recently said on the Today with Hoda and Jenna, "I support her. Whatever she wants, the Mowrys have her back. I love her dearly. She is strong." Tamera went on to say that, as her sister, she will respect Tia wanting some private time right now.

What Is Tia Mowry Working On Now?

Tia Mowry has been very successful since the end of Sister, Sister. She and her twin, Tamera, starred in the Twitches movies, which new kids discover every Halloween. They did a few more movies together, and in 2011 they had their own reality show, Tia & Tamara.

Since then, Tia has written two books, she starred in The Game and the Nick at Nite series, Instant Mom. She had her own Cooking Channel series, and started a podcast.

Most recently, she is starring in the Netflix series, Family Reunion. Season three is set to be released this fall, but this will be the final season of the popular series.

What Will Tia Mowry Do Next?

Life is changing for Tia Mowry. As she says, she is beginning a "new chapter". She is both getting divorced and ending a three-year run on a series. She may take some time for herself and her children.

But when she gets back to work, will there be a Sister, Sister reboot in her future? She has said "no" in the past. She has also said she will not join The Game reboot.

But maybe she will change her mind in this new chapter. Or at least a Twitches 3?
