In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Tia Mowry shares all on the differences between her daughter Cairo, 7 months, and son Cree, 7. The Sister, Sister star shares two children with her husband Cory, who she married in 2008.
“Women are smarter,” Mowry, 40, said. “My daughter, she’s just so chill, she’s so he’s so easy,” Mowry said. “You know how they say–they usually say boys are a lot of energy and girls just sit easy? That is so true. My daughter will just sit.
“She’s been like the best baby,” she continued. “I would say that she’s picked up her milestones a lot quicker, or sooner, than Cree. But maybe it’s because Cree’s around and stimulating her.”
But the Food Network star is mostly proud of the love that her children have for one another, creating a special bond.
“He’s obsessed with her,” Mowry said. When he comes into the room, she’ll just start getting really excited and gets a big smile on her face.”
Mowry was very open with the difficulty she experienced in conceiving Cairo as she suffered from endometriosis. The couple tried to get pregnant for two years before they were successful. Mowry credits a healthier diet with helping to soothe the inflammation and pain she experienced.
“Looking back at my struggles with getting pregnant, when I see them just play and mesh so well together–I’m very grateful,” she said.
