When she became a mother, Tia Mowry had a goal: “I have always wanted to be the cool Mom.”
A recent interview discussed her new partnership with Kelley Blue Book to help announce the brand’s Best Family Cars of 2022 list.
Mowry told Insider that being a mother “doesn’t necessarily mean losing oneself or who one was before one became a mother.”
She said, “It’s all about staying true to who you are. I feel like a woman. We are so freaking powerful. Just because you’re a mom, it doesn’t mean that you cannot express your sexuality.”
Mowry and her husband Cory Hardrict have two children together, Cairo Tiahna, 3, and Cree Taylor, 9.
In addition to acting and promoting her cookware and supplement lines, Mowry keeps up with her family and is hilarious on TikTok.
Mowry said, “It doesn’t mean that you have to give up on yourself or lose yourself or your goals and aspirations. So hell yeah, I’m a cool Mom.”
Like every parent, Mowry is concerned about safety, so she partnered with Kelley Blue Book to promote the Best Family Cars using the company’s “95 years of experience.”
Mowry doesn’t mind singing and playing music, as long as she’s safe in the car, which she’s singing “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” to Cairo and listening to hip-hop music with Cree in.
She said, “I’m sure many families think differently. They don’t just look at a car as a mode of transportation. I have this cool feature in my car that’s important to me.”
Mowry can identify that he turns to resources like Kelley Blue Book. She said she often reads #MomTok to learn about others’ experiences.
She said, “When I think of being a parent, I think of parenthood. I think of community. I think of support systems.”
