As an actress, Tia Mowry first gained success starring in the sitcom Sister, Sister with her twin, Tamera. Apart from this, she is also a voice actress, podcaster, musician, and businesswoman. Though she was joined by her twin in many of her projects, she also has several successful solo ventures. As of 2022, Tia Mowry has a net worth of $4 million.
On July 6, 1978, Tia Dashon Mowry was born two minutes after her identical twin sister, Tamera. Their military parents, Timothy and Darlene, were stationed in Gelnhausen, West Germany when they were born. The twins also have two younger brothers, Tahj and Tavior.
The Mowrys moved back to the United States, where Timothy and Darlene were stationed in Fort Hood, Texas. There, 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, California, so they could become actresses. The family eventually settled there.
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. They also created a musical group named Voices.
On one of the sets of their early shows, they were spotted by a producer who developed a sitcom called “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 was 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.”
They were later featured in several sitcoms across 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 taken part in many acting projects during her career. Her highest-paying ventures are likely the ones she did with her twin sister. However, her separate ventures also gained decent success.
Today, many of her media endeavors are related to motherhood and cooking. She has created a podcast, a reality show, and multiple books about these topics. They make up a considerable portion of her $4 million net worth.
After dating for about eight years, Tia got married to actor Cory Hardrict in 2008. They 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.
