It’s no secret that actress Tia Mowry-Hardrict and her husband Cory Hardrict are going strong, nine years into their marriage. The actress recently shared one of the reasons she believes her husband makes her better, and it’s a good one.
In her new YouTube series, Tia Mowry’s Quick Fix, the stars sat down for an intimate conversation on marriage and and to respond to questions pondered by their fans.
After being together for 18 years, and married since 2008, Mowry-Hardrict said one of the things she loves most about their marriage is how Hardrict’s acts of faith and belief has elevated her own self-perception.
“Cory is a man of faith and a man of God,” the actress, 39, said after a fan asked if they pray for each other.
“He’ll put something on the board and he’ll say, ‘Tia, I know that that’s going to come to pass’, and I’m like, this dude is crazy,” shared Mowry-Hardrict. “Then it comes to pass and not only that—he taught me how to believe in myself more than I believe in myself. He is like my biggest supporter and biggest fan.”
Throughout their marriage, the couple has always remained candid about their relationship and admiration for each other.
“I knew Tia was the one for me when she was in my corner when I moved to L.A., to Inglewood, and I had like two pair of drawls to my name,” Hardrict admitted. “I was dirt poor, I didn’t have anything and she appreciated everything for what it was and she loved me for me. And I knew once I could get in a financially better situation, I’m going to buy her a ring and that’s going to be my wife. And here we are, so that’s when I knew she was the one for me because it was real love. It’s not perfect, now…but that’s love.”
In November, the actress announced she was pregnant with their second child, who will join their 6-year-old son, Cree.
