Actress Tia Mowry took to Instagram with an adorable throwback photo of her now-two-year-old daughter, Cairo Tiahna Hardrict, dressed in a ballerina outfit.

Tia Mowry proved that her daughter, Cairo Tiahna Hardrict, has always been as cute as a button with a sweet flashback Friday post of the now-two-year-old toddler dressed as a ballerina. Captioning her post, Mowry wrote:

"#fbf to when #cairo was just a little tot! She was so tiny when she was #born. I was nervous to bring her home."

The actress added that having a newborn could be very exciting, but at the same time, it could be a scary time in a parent's life. The parents of the newborn would suddenly become responsible for the new "amazing miracle" and be amazed at how their instincts to care for them would kick in.

Little Cairo wore a pastel pink ballet tutu with her adorable tiny white socks adorned with matching pastel roses. The infant stared up at the camera with love in her eyes and succeeded in melting the hearts of her mother's fans and followers.

Mowry said that her little girl's names, Cairo and Tiahna, carried a lot of meaning behind them.



Mowry, a former star of the 90s sitcom "Sister, Sister," welcomed her sweet little girl on May 5, 2018, and she shares the adorable tot with her husband, actor Cory Hardrict.

Hardrict and Mowry have been married for more than a decade. When their daughter was born, they could not be more excited about her arrival.

The actress took to Instagram to announce her daughter's arrival with a heartwarming photo of herself still in the hospital, cradling her newborn. She wrote:

"Feeling grateful and blessed as we welcome our little baby girl into the world...We are in heaven."



The pair did not announce their daughter's name or show her face officially until Mowry revealed the tot's face and name in an episode of her Facebook Watch series, "Tia Mowry's Quick Fix."

She explained that the little girl's names Cairo and Tiahna carried a lot of meaning behind them. Cairo, meant "victorious," while her second name, Tiahna, meant flower of Christ, and it also represented one of the first African princesses.


In March, Mowry took to her Instagram to dazzle her fans with a sweet video of Cairo picking up a kitchen skill or two from her mom in the most adorable baby chef apron there ever was.

The two-year-old has become a frequent feature on her mother's social media, and her fans can hardly complain about it.

Little Cairo also has a big brother, Cree, who was born in 2011. Mowry is enjoying her life as a mother to her sweet kids and wife to her doting husband, while keeping her career in tip-top shape. 

She is now the star of the Cooking Channel's "Tia Mowry at Home," as well as the author of the cookbook, "Whole New You: How Real Food Transforms Your Life, for a Healthier, More Gorgeous You."
