Tia Mowry-Hardrict gave birth on May 5 but she’s kept her daughter under wraps…until now!
Today on her Facebook Watch series, Tia Mowry’s Quick Fix, the star revealed her second bundle of joy’s adorable little face and her name too. (Which husband Cory Hardrict picked out!)
“This is baby Cairo. Her name is Cairo Tiahna Hardrict. Cairo, it basically means victorious. My husband was in the air, flying. He always feels like he’s closer to his mother when he’s up in the air. He said when he was flying, he saw the letters A, I, R, in the sky. He said he wanted the baby’s name to have those letters. Tiahna is spelled T-I-A-H-N-A so it has Tia in there. Tiahna actually means follower of Christ. Also, Tiahna is one of the first African princesses so she’s our little princess here!”
The actress and The Oath actor announced that they were having baby number two in November 2017 and shared that they’d be welcoming a daughter in January. The couple who wed in April 2008, has a son, Cree Taylor.
Mowry-Hardrict had been vocal about her struggle with endometriosis and was in denial about pregnancy the second time around. She even admitted to taking about “20 pregnancy tests” before believing the good news.
Since welcoming her daughter, the star has been honest about life post-partum including breastfeeding and the pressure to snap back after giving birth.
After giving birth, the actress teased fans on Instagram by selectively showing off her baby girl but now that we’ve finally met her and we’re already obsessed with her.
Welcome to the world officially, baby Cairo!
