Facts About Darlene Mowry
Darlene Mowry’s early life is a mystery, news reports claim that Darlene and Timothy Mowry were high school sweethearts.
Her husband became a police officer when the family moved to California.
She has 4 children: daughters, Tamera Mowry-Housley & Tia Mowry-Hardrict (b. July 6, 1978) and sons, Tahj Mowry (b. May 17, 1986) & Tavior Mowry (b. July 5, 1993) with ex-husband, Tim Mowry.
Darlene quickly followed her husband’s military path. There she reached the rank of “sergeant”.
When she was in the destination Gelnhausen, West Germany, gave birth to the twin sisters we know as Tia and Tamera.
Her daughters Tia and Tamera Mowry and Son Tahj Mowry captured the hearts of the masses with her work, it was Darlene who was the workhorse behind the scenes.
The Mowry family shares a close bond that Tia calls “close”. During the 1990s, Darlene managed her two daughters when they were part of a singing group called the Voices. It has always been an integral part of Tia and Tamera’s career. Mrs. Mowry is often seen with her and Tahj’s two daughters in several of her early films and shows.
The spirit and attributes we inherited growing up in a military family are the best thing that ever happened to us, says Tia in an interview. The family is never shy about showing their respect on Veterans Day. Tia also states that the discipline and respect they learned growing up led to a successful career.
“The one thing that I do remember was just living on base,” Tia Mowry-Hardrict told The Huffington Post. “I thought that was the coolest thing. You can step outside of your home and see people who are serving your country. It just gave me great pride to be on such strength and courage.”
Darlene also played an important role in helping her son Tavior Mowry get through his down days. When she suffered a career-threatening injury, it was Darlene who suggested that she take music composition lessons. And it seems that her suggestion was an absolute gem, as she was able to switch careers in no time.
After leaving her job in the military, Darlene and her husband, Timothy, moved to California. There, she was able to get a job as a security guard.
However, her career as a babysitter for her was short-lived as she devoted all her time to her daughter’s acting career. She now works as an executive producer with movies like Double Wedding, The Poof Point, and Seventeen Again on her list.
Darlene was the Mother-in-law of Cory Hardrict and Adam Housley.
