Tamera Mowry and her two-minute younger twin sister Tia Mowry took the industry by storm with their teen role in ABC/WB sitcom Sister, Sister from 1994 to 1999.
The actress and her identical twin always knew they were born for the limelight. While they were born on July 6, 1978, in Gelnhausen in then-West Germany, they somehow managed to convince their parents to move to Los Angeles, California in order to give them leeway to pursue a career in entertainment. Following a few guest roles and contesting at talent shows, the sisters finally got the chance to show their talent with their breakthrough roles in the series Sister, Sister and they have remained active ever since.
Tamera Mowry went on to carve out her own niche as a talented actress in the medical drama Strong Medicine, starring as Dr Kayla Thornton. Hot on the heels of Strong Medicine came Roommates, Things We Do for Love; she also appeared in Tia & Tamera, a successful reality show which focused on the everyday activities of the twin sisters. Tamera has remained one of the hosts of the talk show The Real. The Television show was launched on July 15, 2013.
Apparently, acting is not her only forte; the twins are also gifted with an amazing voice and they have been making 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 theme song of Sister, Sister for season five and six of the hit series. In the early 1990s, they were members of a singing group known as Voices which released their first single titled Yeah, Yeah, Yeah! in 1992, gracing the Billboard Hot 100 at No 72.
Who are Tamera Mowry’s Parents?
The beautiful actress was received as a bundle of joy by her mother Darlene Renee Mowry and father Timothy John Mowry. Both parents served in the army with her mother rendering her services to the U.S. Army right before she later became her children’s manager when they hit the spotlight.
Similarly, Tamera’s father 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/jailer with the City of Glendale Police Department in California. This followed the family’s relocation to the United States to help hone and explore the children’s talents.
Is Tamera Mowry Married? Husband
In an interview in 2013, Tamera shared how she held on to her virginity until the age of 29. The decision was inspired by her beliefs as a devout Christian. Sadly, she lost the priceless possession before she got married and this made her feel guilty, thus, the decision to stay away from sex until she finds the one.
She later tied the knot with Fox News Correspondent Adam Housley after almost six years of dating. Their wedding took place on May 15, 2011, in California’s Napa Valley. Their union raised a lot of eyebrows among those who still feel it’s odd for a man of white ethnicity to marry a half black woman.
Nonetheless, the two are seemingly a perfect match made for each other as they have been enjoying marital bliss since they got married. The couple competed in the Celebrity Cupcake Wars on Food Network in 2016 and beat three other couples to clinch the prize which they donated to charity.
Tamera Mowry’s Kids (Baby Girl, Daughter, Son)

The lovely couple welcomed their first bundle of joy, a son named Aden John Tanner Housley, on November 12, 2012. Early in 2015, Tamera took to social media to announce the imminent arrival of her second child, a baby girl. As expected, the Housleys welcomed their daughter named Ariah Talea Housley on July 1, 2015.
