Tia and Tamera Mowry, identical twin sisters, shared photos on their Instagram accounts showing their father, Timothy John Mowry, on Father’s Day.

Tamera, best known for The Real, uploaded a three-image slideshow portraying Timothy, who is white, in front of a war tank wearing camo shirt and cap, blue jeans, brown boots, and black sunglasses.

The second image in her slideshow portrayed Timothy next to a friend who was also wearing military-like shirt and cap. For the third image, Tamera shared some army infantry flags.

On the other hand, Tia, who is famous for several movies and TV shows including Tia Mowry at Home, posted a selfie showing her and Timothy next to each other. The actress was wearing a white shirt while her father put on a plaid blue and white shirt.

Since both women shared those images on Father’s Day, they took their time to honor Timothy. Tia only wrote in the caption ‘Happy Father’s Day,’ next to a couple of heart emoji.

Tamera opted for sharing a lot more details about her father. She pointed out that Timothy was the best father and grandfather and that her children ‘leap for joy’ when they hear his voice. The Real host added that Timothy retired as a first sergeant from the Army and that he loved his job.

Apart from that, Tamera pointed out that her father’s infantry was ‘the best,’ including the chant of the Charlie 1/52 group (the one Timothy was in): ‘Hooah! Hooah! Follow me! (who-a).’

As Celebritist previously reported, The Real got done a DNA test on all the show’s hosts. Tamera was one of them, and her genetic ancestry was revealed.

It was a very emotional segment as Tamera even cried when she learned that her ancestors were slaves.

The results set clear that Tamera (and Tia, of course) are 53% European and 45% African. In a more detailed way, they are 21% British, 12% Irish, 8% Iberian Peninsula, 5% Western European, and 7% other European.

For the African side, the twins are 22% Ivory Coast and Ghana, 10% Cameroon and Congo, 9% Mali, and 4% other African. To make things even more interesting about Tia and Tamera, they were born in Germany.
