Tamera Mowry Skewered After Saying She Prayed Daughter Would ‘Look Like Me…Have Brown Skin’


Tamera Mowry is getting candid about the hopes she had for her daughter’s appearance before she was born a year ago.

While many parents hope for a happy, healthy baby, Mowry also wanted Ariah to have something in common with her — her skin tone.

“I wanted Ariah to really look like me,” she says on “The Real” Monday, June 4. “Like, everything, everything. I think she has my skin color and my eye color.”

“You prayed for that! I remember! She was like, ‘Lord, let her be brown. Let her have black hair,'” co-host Adrienne Bailon interjected.

After the discussion turned to how much Ariah looks like her dad, Adam Housely, (Mowry said, “she has a big head. Adam has a big head. But I love Adam’s big head”), some accused the actress of dissing her daughter. They also slammed Mowry for marrying a white man but hoping for a brown-skinned child.

“I had to re-watch this 3 times…is Tamera brutally dissing her daughter! Wow! Wait until she’s old enough to see this!”

“They were really mean to the kid wtf.”

“Lmao @ Tamera praying her kid ends up brown-skinned, trust that’d be me if I had a baby with a white dude 🤷🏽‍♀️.”

“You wanted a mini you.. but had a baby with a white man. 🤔 #makeitmakesense.”
