The quarantine is affecting Tia Mowry in more ways than one. The celebrity mom tells ET Online that not being able to see her extended family during this time is heartbreaking.
“That, to be honest with you, has been the hardest part,” Tia says of being separated from her twin sister, Tamera Mowry, and other family members. “Of course I get to see my family, my husband and my children,” she said. “But not being able to see my dad, my brothers and my sister has been pretty hard because we’re all very close.”
Governor Gavin Newsom mandated Californians to stay home last week after the spread of coronavirus increased in the state. The governor has maintained such an order with even stricter rules that practically prohibit individuals from meeting in recreational areas.
FaceTime has been a saving grace for Tia and her extended family during the quarantine. “It’s crazy how we’re getting excited about the simple things, like, ‘Look what I made for dinner,'” the celebrity mom said. “I’m constantly checking up on [my brothers’] well being, like, ‘How are you doing emotionally?’ Especially with my dad and my mom because they’re older,” Mowry said.
“It’s just so important to just stay inside,” the actress emphasized. “It’s safer at home and staying at home saves lives, but I’m able to talk to my mom and my dad on FaceTime,” she added. “We talk almost everyday, my sister as well. We’ve been texting each other. She’s doing well with her kids but I believe that’s been the hardest, not being able to see your loved ones. But we’re gonna get through this.”
