As an actress, Tia Mowry first gained success starring in the sitcom Sister, Sister with her twin, Tamera. Although she was joined by her twin in many of her projects, she has several successful solo ventures. She is also a talented voice actress, podcaster, and musician. As of 2023, Tia Mowry has a net worth of $4 million.
Tia Mowry was born two minutes after her identical twin sister, Tamera, on July 6, 1978. When they were born, her parents Timothy and Darlene were in the military and were stationed in West Germany. In addition, the twins have two younger brothers, Tahj and Tavior.
The Mowrys moved back to the United States as Timothy and Darlene were stationed in Fort Hood, Texas. Around this time, Tia and Tamera started entering beauty pageants as kids.
The twins had their mother as their manager and security guard. When they turned 12, they convinced her to take them to Los Angeles, so they could become actresses and this is where the family eventually settled.
In the early 1990s, Tia and her sister started getting minor roles in television shows and commercials. They appeared in series such as True Colors, Dangerous Woman, and Full House. The duo also created a musical group named Voices.
On one of the sets of their early shows, they were spotted by a producer who created the sitcom “Sister, Sister.” The show followed the reunion of twin sisters after being separated at birth.
“Sister, Sister” first premiered in 1994 on the ABC network. After two years, it was canceled, and the rights were acquired by The WB. The series aired for four more years on The WB and ended in 1999.
Both sisters later got into voice acting. Tia is most known for voicing the character of Sasha in the 4KidsTV animated series Bratz. She later reunited with her sister in the 2005 Disney movie “Twitches.”
The twins later featured in several sitcoms on different networks. Tia gained recognition for starring in BET’s “The Game.” In 2011, Style Network premiered the Tia & Tamera reality show which followed their daily lives and lasted two seasons. Entering motherhood, Tia published her debut book, “Oh, Baby,” in 2012.
She later published two cookbooks and started a Cooking Channel series, “Tia Mowry at Home,” and a podcast called “Mostly Mom with Tia Mowry.” The celebrity mom also partnered with BioSchwartz and United Talent Agency to launch a vitamin supplement line.
Net Worth and Earnings
Mowry has had many acting roles during her career and her highest-paying gigs are likely the ones with her sister. However, her separate ventures earned decent success.
Today, many of her media endeavors are related to motherhood and cooking. She has a podcast, a reality show, and multiple books on these topics. These ventures make up a considerable portion of her $4 million fortune.
After dating for eight years, Tia married actor Cory Hardrict in 2008. The couple are currently raising two children, Cree and Cairo, in their home in Studio City, Los Angeles.
Before getting pregnant, she suffered from a uterus disorder called endometriosis. After delivering her last baby, she lost over 68 pounds in her postpartum weight loss journey.
