America first fell in love with Tia and Tamera Mowry when they made their debut on the 1994 sitcom Sister, Sister. At the time, the twins were just 15 years old. Recently, the now 35-year-old Tia took to Instagram to share a photo that shows the girls more than a decade before their Sister, Sister debut.
The adorable pic shows Tia and Tamera as babies, and each girl is sitting on the lap of one of her parents. “TBT the Mowry clan! Mom and dad! Which ones which? Hint, Cree looked like me as a baby! Xx,” the mother of 18-month-old son Cree wrote.
Fans seem pretty split as to which baby is which, but a tiny percentage more are guessing that it’s Tia on the left, Tamera on the right. And there’s no sign of little brother Taj Mowry in this family photo. The former Smart Guy star wasn’t born until his older sisters were eight years old. Their brother Tavior was born about a year later.
The Mowry parents were high school sweethearts. They met in Miami, Florida, both served in the U.S. Army, and later moved to California so that the girls could pursue an acting career. Timothy Mowry has English ancestry while Darlene Mowry is of Afro-Bahamian descent.
These days, both Tia and Tamera have babies of their own. Tia’s son Cree will be three on June 28, while Tamera’s son Aden recently celebrated his first birthday. Seeing this throwback photo, it becomes very clear: The Mowry family makes some ridiculously cute babies.
