The actress went on to appear in many movies and TV shows. 

The actress is married to actor Cory Hardrict, and those familiar with their relationship know that it is a fairytale. 

Let us look at their relationship timeline.

According to People, the two met on the set of the horror movie Hollywood Horror.

This was the actress’ first feature movie after the conclusion of Sister, Sister in the same year. 

At the time, Hardrict was new to the industry; thus, he did not have any credit for his name. 

The two still became instant friends, and as the actor remembers during an interview with Global Grind, he was at the bus stop when Tia saw him waiting and asked if he could give him a ride.

He admitted he felt ashamed at being found at a bus stop.

The actress was not interested in dating at the time since she revealed to People magazine she was in her early 20s and was busy between her acting career and going to school.

They never got physical and did not engage in any PDA since she wanted to make sure their union was special and real. 

They courted each other for a year before pushing the notch higher, and the times they met, there were other people around. 


Mowry decided to give him a chance after discussing it with her mother.

She recalled her mother telling her that Hardrict was nice and that she should give him a chance.

They shared their first kiss while on a picnic.

She revealed that that was the first time he asked to kiss her, and she confessed that it was sweet. 


Cory Hardrict proposed to Tia, and he made it a family affair.

He did not ask the actress’ parents for Tia’s hand in marriage but included the whole family.

He proposed on Christmas Day, and as they were having dinner, the actor interrupted by revealing to Mowry that he wanted to give her something special.

He gave her a card asking her brothers to play the song Let’s Get Married by Jagged Edge.

He proceeded to get down on one knee and gave Mowry a diamond ring while asking her to marry him.

At the time, she was in a leather jacket the actor gifted him, revealing she was never getting rid of it. 


The couple tied the knot in 2008 in Santa Barbara.

The event was at the Four Seasons, a place they were familiar with since they were regular visitors.

They were involved in planning the event.

They worked together with the wedding planner to create a lovely event.

The actress revealed that one of her favorite moments at the time was seeing her soon-to-be husband shed a tear as she walked down the aisle. 

Hardrict revealed that the actress was supportive when he struggled from the beginning.

She was appreciative and loved him unconditionally. 

This made him make a promise that once he made it, he was going to propose to her, and that is what he did in 2006.


The two waited until they were in their mid-30s to get kids.

The actress revealed it was vital she achieve her professional goals before becoming a mother.

The couple welcomed their first child, Cree in 2011.


They welcomed their second child, Cairo.

The actress usually talks about her experience as a parent on social media.

She posted a picture of her breastfeeding Cairo on Instagram.

She enjoys being a mother and admits that her favorite thing about parenthood is watching her children grow.

She revealed, “They start out as a little tiny circle, then you hear their heart beat, and now they’ve grown into beautiful little human beings. It’s so fascinating to see how they evolve.”
