The Sister, Sister alum and her husband, actor Cory Hardrict, have a 9-year-old son, Cree, and a 2-year-old daughter, Cairo.
“I’ve lost to date 68 pounds since giving birth to my daughter. I’m very proud that I did it my way and in my time,” she captioned a bathroom selfie. “I didn’t feel rushed to snap back. I enjoyed breast feeding and spending quality time with #cairo and my son #cree. To all the women who are feeling pressured after birth. Do YOU! Do what makes YOU proud and do it in YOUR time. Not anyone else’s.❤️.”

In November 2019, she gave fans a closer look at her progress on her YouTube channel, Tia Mowry’s Quick Fix. “One of the main reasons that I started was not to lose weight,” she said in the video. “It was about moving again and being part of a routine that was about me.”
Tia also learned an important aspect about herself in the process. “I worked really hard,” she said. “I learned that I am bada–. I’m a super mom, I really am. And I believe that women can do anything they put their mind to.”
Here’s to Tia’s strength, inside and out!
