Baby makes 4 for Tia Mowry-Hardrict and her husband, Cory.
Tia’s twin sister, Tamera Mowry-Housley, took to Instagram to share the news of her niece’s arrival on Saturday, May 5.
“She’s here!! Can’t wait for the world to see her,” Mowry-Housley wrote in a post on her Instastory. “She’s beautiful.”
Tamera’s post came just minutes after proud dad, Cory, shared a teary-eyed photo and heartfelt caption of his own on IG, letting the world know that his baby girl was almost here.
In November, Mowry-Hardrict announced she was expecting her second child and in January confirmed she was due to welcome a baby girl.
The couple tied the knot in April 2008 and in 2011, gave birth to their son Cree, who was over the moon about becoming a big brother.
“Cree is so happy. He’s already being the big brother and well, he’s also checking up on me too,” the actress told ESSENCE at the 2018 Black Women in Hollywood event in March. “He’s like, ‘Mommy, have you eaten?’ He’s also given me a foot massage! I just feel so blessed to have amazing testosterone in my life.”
Along with the Sister, Sister actress’ excitement, her husband couldn’t contain his happiness about their second bundle of joy.
The Oath actor showered his wife with affection during her pregnancy by spoiling her with foot massages, indulging in her every craving, and loving on her growing baby bump.
“I enjoy getting all the food for her!,” Hardrict said about catering to the 39-year-old. “I just want to give her fried chicken with red beans and rice and some chitlins!”
Hardrict also opened up to ESSENCE about his joy of welcoming a daughter into his world and how he expects fatherhood to be different from raising a son.
“I’m really ready for it because I’m ready for some peace and quiet in the house,” he said with a laugh. “I hear little girls are so soft, their temperament, they’re so angelic so I’m ready for that!”
He added, “I’ve always wanted a little baby girl, I’ll probably leave my show, riding around in my car, looking in the back at her car seat, [seeing] her little burettes and all that. I wanna see all of it. Her hair done real nice and some good ultra sheen and you take it back to the green grease, you know what I’m saying? I wanna enjoy and cherish all those moments just being a father and raising a beautiful Black young queen in this world.”
Just before their 10-year wedding anniversary, the couple celebrated the anticipated arrival of their bundle of joy with a bohemian themed baby shower.
The actress, who has been vocal about her struggle with endometriosis, was in denial about pregnancy the second time around and admitted that she took about “20 pregnancy tests” before believing the good news.
In the days before her baby girl arrived, Mowry-Hardrict showed off her gorgeous nursery which included earth tones and calm vibes–plus a very amazing shoe collection!
Congrats Tia, Cory, and Cree on the new addition. Welcome to the world, baby Hardrict!
