- The “Sister Sister” alum recently announced her divorce after 14 years of marriage.
- She told People that her children are “continuing to thrive so beautifully.”
- She also admitted to being “in survival mode” as a newly single parent.
Tia Mowry said her young children are flourishing following her recent split from Cory Hardrict, her husband of 14 years.
“They’re continuing to thrive so beautifully,” the “Sister Sister” alum said in an interview with People magazine. “I’m in awe of my children, especially my son right now.”
“I told him the other day, ‘I’m so proud of you,’ that he’s learning at such a young age that sometimes life will give you challenges, but that doesn’t mean that you give up, that doesn’t mean that you don’t believe in yourself.”
Mowry announced her divorce from the “All American: Homecoming” star in an emotional Instagram post last October. According to ET, she cited “irreconcilable differences” in court documents reportedly obtained by the outlet.
Still, the parents plan to share custody of their two children, daughter Cairo, 4, and son Cree, 10.
Mowry previously told Insider that she manages parenthood by leaning on her virtual and real-life communities. As for life as a newly single mom “wearing so many different hats,” Mowry admitted to feeling constantly stuck “in survival mode.”
“I’m always making sure everybody is okay, everybody’s alive, everybody’s healthy, everybody’s fed and making sure everybody’s fine, they have no holes in their socks, et cetera,” she said.
To ensure that she thrives as well, the “Family Reunion” star has prioritized “learning how to be aware and present” with her needs and checking in with herself routinely.
