Tia Mowry-Hardrict on Her Secret to Happiness in Parenthood with Husband Cory: 'We Never Follow Trends' Tia Mowry/Instagram Along with Cree, the couple — who wed in 2008 — are also parents to 3-year-old daughter Cairo Tiahna. Mowry told PEOPLE that she hopes to set a positive example as a mother to Cree and Cairo. "Children learn through observation, so I would want them to say that Mommy was a doer. She wanted us to work hard, and we saw Mommy working hard," she told PEOPLE in 2020. "She wanted us to go after our dreams, and we saw Mommy going after her dreams," the actress continued. "I would want them to say that she put 110 percent into everything she did for us, and that she always did her best."
