"The Coolest Boy I Know"

Tia Mowry and Cory Hardrict were in full celebration mode on Tuesday (Jun. 28) as they commemorated their son Cree Hardrict’s eleventh birthday. Tia took to Instagram with a beautiful message to the tween.


“Happy birthday to the coolest boy I know,” Mowry wrote to her son. “Munchkin, you are so funny, full of life, and love,” the celebrity mom added. “My oh my have you grown,” Tia told Cree. “You will be taller than me any minute,” the actress shared. “Raising you has been the biggest blessing I could ask for. My heart beats for you! I am so proud of who you are becoming! I will continue to be the best mother I can be so that you will have #BlacBoyJoy.”

Many remember Cree’s joy on full display a few weeks ago. The youngster was brought to tears as he learned of his acceptance to the private school of his first choice. “SO proud of @creehardrict for getting accepted into the school of his DREAMS,” Tia told her Instagram fans. “As a mother, my goal was and is always to support and give my children the opportunities I never had as a child, and this week, BOTH of our dreams came true,” the actress shared. “Congrats, Cree. It’s only up from here. Mommy loves you and we got you!”

Cree received a special birthday greeting from his aunt Tamera Mowry Housley on Tuesday. “Happy Birthday Cree,” Tamera exclaimed in an Instagram post that featured Cree with his cousins Aden and Ariah. “Wow,” the actress exclaimed. “[I] can’t believe you’re 11,” Tamera continued.

“We can’t wait to see you soon! Auntie loves your hugs, [and] jokes; you are funny dude! Your laughter and the bond you have with your cousin Aden. You are one pretty cool kid.”

Cree is Tia Mowry and Cory Hardrict’s oldest child. The celebrity couple also has a daughter named Cairo who celebrated her fourth birthday last month.
