Tia Mowry’s daughter, Cairo Tiahna Hardrict, sometimes mistakes her aunt Tamera for her mom. Tia shares the details with PEOPLE exclusively.
“When my daughter Cairo was looking at my sister’s daughter [Ariah Talea, 5], she goes, ‘Cairo?’ We feel like Cairo and Ariah look alike,” Tia shares. “And then when she looks at my sister Tamera, she’ll go, ‘Mama.’ Because she thinks it’s me,” the celebrity mom says. “That’s what it’s like having a twin in the family,” Tia quips.
Cairo Hardrict celebrated her second birthday in May. The youngster had a small gathering that included her mom, father, and brother at home. Cairo’s party had a Mexican theme, which was more than appropriate since the youngster shares her birthday with the Cinco de Mayo holiday.

#happybirthday to my womb mate @tameramowrytwo Wow! is all I can say. Being a #twin is a #blessing. We have experienced so many #milestones together. Just to name a few. We booked #Sister,Sister together, we won our first #nickelodeon #kidschoiceawards together, we #graduated from #college together. We traveled the world to together and unfortunately we also experienced #grief together. When our #grandmother died, I will never forget us sleeping together in the same hotel bed to comfort each other. #God blessed us to come into this #world together because he knew we couldn’t do it alone. Love you sis! Love you my #twin. 💕It’s been so long since we’ve seen each other. It feels so #weird. My #birthday wish has nothing to do with #material things. My wish is for us to kick #coronavirus ASS! Additionally, I want this world to be #unified. My dream would be to vanquish all #prejudices. From social economical statuses, to racial prejudices and sexual preferences. We are not #equal until we #all are #equal. I pray for #peace and I #pray for #kindness. Love you and thank you for all the #birthday #wishes 🙏🏽
