Tia Mowry - No more "Sister, Sister"

We all remember this beautiful face from the hit show Sister, Sister where Tia and Tamera Mowry played twin sisters who were separated at birth, adopted by two different people, and happened to run into each other while out shopping with their adopted parents.  Now, Tia has stepped out into her own and has made a name for herself.

Tia Dashon Mowry-Hardrict was born July 6, 1978 with her twin sister, Tamera Mowry.  She was born in Gelnhausen, West Germany to parents Timothy and Darlene Mowry, both who were U.S. Army sergeants.  She also has two brothers, Tahj and Tavior Mowry.  Tia attended Pepperdine University where she studied psychology.

Tia and her sister knew they were born to be in the spotlight.  The two began entering pageants and talent shows while their parents were stationed in Ft. Hood, Texas.  When they were 12 years old, they moved to Los Angeles after convincing their parents to move to California so they could pursue acting careers.  In 1994, Tia and twin sister Tamera started playing in their very own television show Sister, Sister.  After the show ended in 1999, Tia went on to do voice overs and play roles in other movies and cartoons.  In 2005, Tia Mowry-Hardrict starred in Disney Channel's television movie Twitches as Alex Fielding alongside her sister.  The sequel, Twitches Too, was then released in 2007.  Tia also played Sydney in 2000 movie release Seventeen Again.  She then landed the starring role of television series The Game in 2006 as Melanie Barnett, who was the girlfriend and now the wife of football player Derwin Davis (played by Marion "Pooch" Hall).

Tia Mowry-Hardrict met and dated her now husband, Cory Hardrict.  They were engaged Christmas of 2007 and married April 20, 2008.  The two are expecting their first child (a baby boy) in July of 2011.
