Tia’s father and mother Darlene Mowry have four children together: twins Tia and Tamera, 42, and sons Tahj, 34, and Tavior, 27.
Mowry’s parents, who met in high school and eventually joined the military together, laid a strong familial foundation for Tia and her three siblings. Mowry has shared how her mother imparted an important lesson about the importance of standing up for herself and knowing her value when she and her twin sister, Tamera, starred in the hit series “Sister, Sister.”
When the twins were “18 or 19,” according to Tia, their mother, Darlene Mowry, did some research and found out that they weren’t being paid as much as others in the business who put in equal amounts of time and work. Their mom brought the issue to the table and questioned why the girls appeared to be unfairly paid. They reportedly became two of the “highest-paid actresses on a pre-teen family show.”
“She believed in us. And by her believing in us, we saw that strength and we believed in ourselves,” the “Family Reunion” actress told Essence. “And my sister and I became, at one point, one of the highest-paid actresses on a pre-teen family show and it started with my mom and us knowing our worth and, again, vocalizing what we believe is right.”
