Tia Mowry and her daughter had hearts melting this past weekend as they rocked matching bonnets and adorable grins. The actress’s Instagram comment section was filled with heartwarming remarks.
Tia, 41, previously opened up about always wanting to be her children's best friend, and her latest picture with daughter, Cairo, is enough proof.

The "Sister Sister" alum took to Instagram with a selfie of her and Cairo, 19 months, wearing matching pink-and-brown satin bonnets. The little tot also appeared to be in her colorful pajamas.
"I want to be that for my children, but sometimes I have to realize that maybe that's not a realistic goal."
Tia and Cairo – who has become hilariously known for rarely smiling – sported matching grins in the snapshot taken at home. "Y'all we woke up like this. We woke like this," Tia gushed in the caption.

SOCIAL MEDIA REACTS
In less than 24 hours, the Instagram post already had over a hundred thousand likes and comments, with fans showing love to the mother-daughter duo.
This will not be the first time Tia decides to twin with her adorable little girl. Back in May, the duo rocked matching flower crowns for Cairo's Bohemian-themed first birthday party, and Tia revealed she was shocked her daughter kept it on.
The "Family Reunion" star welcomed Cairo in May 2018 and also shares an eight-year-old son, Cree Taylor, with husband, Cory Hardrict.
NEW MOM ADVOCATE
Tia has been quite an open book about her health and parenting journey, revealing a while back that she suffered from endometriosis and had to switch up her diet to conceive Cairo.
Since Cairo's birth, the doting mom has also become a body positivity advocate, encouraging other mothers to embrace their process and return to their pre-baby bodies at their own pace.
TELLING IT AS IT IS
Tia took things further when she recently graced the cover of Romper's Holiday Issue. The mom-of-two got candid about the changes in her body and how she's come to accept them.
"First of all, I am not afraid to say this," she told the magazine, via E! News. "But I literally have to pick up my boobs to see my waist… Literally, haul them up and be like, 'Oh, there it is.'"
Back in September, Tia also admitted to PEOPLE's "Celeb Parents Get Real" that her best parenting quality could very well be her worst.
"I am fun. I'm funny. I am like your best friend. I love being silly with my kids; I love making my kids laugh," she shared. "And that would probably be my worst quality, as well!"
"I have to learn how to draw that line and be like, 'Tia, maybe this is why, sometimes, your kids run all over you – because they think you're their friend!' I want them to be my friend; you tell your best friend everything. And I want to be that for my children, but sometimes I have to realize that maybe that's not a realistic goal."
But Tia made it known that she's not planning to switch up her personality with the kids because that would be like not being true to herself. "Authenticity is the most important thing," she told the outlet.
So, while Tia knows that her best quality as a parent may also be her worst, the chances are high that we'll be getting more goofy mother-child pics in the nearest future.
