'Sister, Sister' Star Tia Mowry Pays Sweet Tribute to Little Brother Tahj
Tia Mowry shared an adorable old photograph of herself and "Baby Daddy" star Tahj Mowry. Tia hailed her brother's faith and love of God, before declaring that they would be bonded forever.
American actress Tia Mowry was feeling nostalgic over the weekend and reminisced on some of her fond moments with her ever-supportive social media fans.
The "Sister, Sister" star shared a throwback photo of her and her younger brother and fellow actor, Tahj Mowry, with her 7.8 million followers on Instagram on Sunday, July 19.
In the shot, a young Tia, wearing a dark brown top complete with a scarf and loop earrings, happily embraced her little brother, who sported a brown outfit and a diamond earring. The duo smiled for the camera.
The actress then captioned the post by expressing her love Tahj, which has persisted over the years as the two have remained quite close despite their Hollywood careers. She ended her caption, saying,
"We in this together! #brotherandsister ???"
The 42-year-old also praised Tahj's dedication to God, as she admired his strength and faith. Fans reiterated Tia's statements and proclaimed that God had been good to the duo, with some stating that they would keep the actor in their prayers.
Other fans awed at the adorable young siblings in the beautiful throwback photo, saying that their bond was unbreakable. Tahj will rely on support from his elder twin sisters (Tia and Tamera) as the actor goes through an emotional period.
Tahj Mowry has confirmed work is in progress on a "Smart Guy" reboot.
Tahj's first-ever girlfriend and co-star on the hit TV show "Smart Guy," Naya Rivera, was confirmed dead earlier this month. The 33-year-old had initially been reported missing on July 8 after a boating trip with her 4-year-old son.
Rivera's body was later discovered on Lake Piru, after which an autopsy confirmed that the actress died of accidental drowning. Tahj took the news pretty hard and took to social media to issue an emotional tribute to the actress. He wrote,
"We broke each other's hearts and then mended them back together… I will never not think of you."
Although they are all well-known faces today, the Mowry siblings had a strict military-style upbringing; both their parents were U.S. Army sergeants.
Tahj recalls that he and his sisters only came on to the TV scene after their parents recognized their talent and moved the family to Los Angeles.
The stars then pretty much aligned for the Mowrys as Tahj starred in numerous commercials before creating his own show, "Smart Guy," three years after his sisters' popular series "Sister, Sister," hit TV.
Mowry revealed in April that work is already ongoing on a "Smart Guy" reboot, which he confirmed would be a sequel to the original. "Sister, Sister," however, which aired on ABC and later on The WB, was concluded in 1999.
