Tamera Mowry and her two minutes younger twin sister Tia Mowry took the industry by storm with their teenage role in the ABC/WB sitcom Sister, Sister, Sister from 1994 to 1999.
The actress and her identical twin always knew that they were born for the limelight. While they were born on July 6, 1978, in Gelnhausen, then in West Germany, they somehow managed to convince their parents to move to Los Angeles, California, to give them room for a career in the entertainment industry. After several guest roles and competitions at talent shows, the sisters finally got the chance to prove their talent with their groundbreaking roles in the series “Sister, Sister” and they have remained active ever since.
Tamera Mowry subsequently carved out her own niche as a talented actress in the medical drama Strong Medicine, starring Dr. Kayla Thornton. Following Strong Medicine came Roommates, Things We Do for Love; she also appeared in Tia & Tamera, a successful reality show focusing on the everyday activities of the twin sisters. Tamera has remained one of the hosts of the talk show The Real. The TV show was launched on July 15, 2013.
Apparently, acting is not their only strength; the twins are also gifted with an amazing voice and they made the most of it. The duo lent their voices to the covers of I’m Going Down, You Can’t Hurry Love and Amazing Grace. They were also the voices behind the title song of Sister, Sister for the fifth and sixth seasons of the hit series. In the early 1990s, they were members of a vocal group called Voices, which released its first single in 1992, entitled Yeah, Yeah, Yeah! and graced the Billboard Hot 100 at number 72.
Who are Tamera Mowry’s Parents?
The beautiful actress was welcomed as a bundle of joy by her mother Darlene Renee Mowry and her father Timothy John Mowry. Both parents served together with her mother in the army and rendered their services for the U.S. Army, shortly before she later became her children’s manager when they came into the limelight.
Similarly, the father of Tamera was in the U.S. Army at the time she and her twin sister were born, but he later got a job as a custody officer/hunter at the City of Glendale Police Department in California. This followed the family’s move to the United States to hone and explore the talents of the children.
Is Tamera Mowry Married? Husband
In an interview in 2013, Tamera told how she kept her virginity until the age of 29. The decision was inspired by her convictions as a believing Christian. Sadly, she lost her priceless possessions before she married, which made her feel guilty, the decision to stay away from sex until she finds the one.
She later made the alliance with Fox News correspondent Adam Housley after nearly six years of dating. Their wedding took place on May 15, 2011, in Napa Valley, California. Their union attracted a lot of attention among those who still find it strange that a man of white ethnicity should marry a half-black woman.
Nonetheless, the two seem to be a perfect match, as they have been in marital bliss since their marriage. The couple entered the Celebrity Cupcake Wars on Food Network in 2016 and beat out three other couples to win the prize they had donated to charity.

The lovely couple welcomed their first bundle of joy on November 12, 2012, a son named Aden John Tanner Housley. In early 2015, Tamera used social media to announce the imminent arrival of their second child, a little girl. As expected, the Housley’s welcomed their daughter, Ariah Talea Housley, on July 1, 2015.
