Tia Mowry, formerly of the hit ’90s teen sitcom Sister, Sister, has welcomed a son! With her husband Cory Hardrict by her side, Tia gave birth to an 8-pound bouncing baby boy on June 28, according to People magazine.
Just like on the show, Tia, 32, and her twin sister Tamera are especially close – so close, that the actress hopes her sister will be a major part of her new son’s life.
“I think she secretly thinks my son is her son, too! I mean, twins share everything, right?” Tia joked of Tamera. “She is always kissing, rubbing, patting and hugging my belly.”
Since twins have an increased chance of multiple births themselves, Tia knew that carrying two babies was a possibility – but admits she was thrilled when she learned she was only going to have one child. “I am so relieved I am not having twins. I tell my mother almost every day I can’t believe she was able to carry all that extra weight,” she wrote in a guest blog for Parenting.
The actress announced her pregnancy last January, saying that discovering she was with child made her feel “sexy and empowered.” She and Hardict have been married since 2008, when they tied the knot in Santa Barbara, California, the source reports.
