Both born in Germany, beautiful twins Tia and Tamera Mowry have earned their fame on shows like Sister, Sister and The Game.

The Mowry sisters were born in Gelnhausen in West Germany. Their mother, Darlene Renée Mowry (née Flowers), managed her children’s careers when they were in a singing group called Voices, and also worked as a security guard. Their father, Timothy John Mowry, was in the U.S. Army at the time of their birth, and later became a custody officer/jailer with the City of Glendale Police Department, when the family moved to California.

Their father is white, and has Irish ancestry, while their mother is of Afro-Bahamian descent. The parents met in high school, in Miami, Florida. Both joined the U.S. Army, and both would eventually reach the rank of Sergeant. The Mowry family growing up was described as “close-knit” and “very spiritual.” In fact, the sisters became born-again Christians when they were eight.

Tia is two minutes younger than her twin sister, Tamera. Tamera was born first, at 4:30pm, followed by Tia at 4:32pm. They also have two younger brothers, actor and musician Tahj Mowry and the youngest Tavior Mowry, who plays college football for University of California, Davis.
