From Sister, Sister to double dose of hot mama!

Appearing on the cover of Essence‘s April issue, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Tia Mowry-Hardict, 34, sizzle in brightly colored sheaths while showing off their sons in the magazine’s inside spread.

“I feel sexier now, as a mother, than I ever have in my life,” Mowry-Hardict, mom to 20-month-old son Cree Taylor, says. “I’m more in tune with my body. I don’t take any crap anymore either.”

Her twin sister, who recently welcomed her first child — Aden John Tanner, now 3 months — continues to count her blessings since plunging into parenthood.

“I’ve always wanted to be a mother. I’m a nurturer, a girly girl,” Mowry-Housley says. “I know my priorities: God, family and work … When those things are in check, the work will flow.”

Putting their personal lives on display in Tia & Tamera, the pair promise their onscreen personalities are completely authentic.

“We didn’t want to do a reality show if we couldn’t be real — if I couldn’t be myself,” Mowry-Hardict explains. “There is no ‘evil twin syndrome,’ though we do have evil moments.”
