The Game star, 32, and husband Cory Hardrict welcomed an 8 lb. son on Tuesday, June 28 in Los Angeles, her rep tells PEOPLE.

Mowry announced the pregnancy in January, telling PEOPLE she felt “sexy and empowered.”

Although baby has now arrived, Mowry’s pregnancy will be televised when she and her twin sister Tamera return to the airwaves on their new reality show, Tia & Tamera, premiering in August on the Style Network.

“I think she secretly thinks my son is her son too! I mean, twins share everything, right?” Mowry joked recently. “She is always kissing, rubbing, patting and hugging my belly.”

Mowry and Hardrict, also an actor, tied the knot in April 2008 in Santa Barbara.
