Tia Mowry and her daughter Cairo dropped some well-received cuteness on fans’ timelines.
The “Family Reunion” star shared a photo of herself and her 2-year-old mini-me looking radiant in matching multicolored striped dresses. Mom Tia accessorized her dress with large gold hoops and layered necklaces, while baby Cairo wore pigtails with purple and green bows.
Mowry used the words of Queen Bey to dedicate her photo’s caption to her “beautiful brown skin girl.” “My #beautiful brown skin girl. Your skin just like pearls. The best the thing in the world. Never trade you for anything in the world~ @beyonce 💕.”
Fans couldn’t get enough of the adorable mother-daughter duo.
“So much joy in this picture. Beautiful! 💛,” exclaimed a follower.
“Love the matchy matchy!!” complimented a second.
“Been watching you since sister sister then the game. You [and] your sister my role models,” gushed a third. “You both beautiful your familes are gorgeous. You still look so young. ❤️❤️❤️.”
“Those matching dresses are so cute!” a fourth remarked.
Tia has openly celebrated her natural beauty and preaches the importance of loving the skin you’re in, but has still had to overcome her share of struggles based on that very skin throughout her career.
“The Game” actress recalled a time she says she and her sister were passed over for a magazine cover during the height of their “Sister, Sister” popularity because it was thought that their skin color wouldn’t sell issues.
“So my sister [Tamera] and I wanted to be on the cover of this very popular [teenage] magazine at the time,” Mowry told ET. “We were told that we couldn’t be on the cover of the magazine because we were Black and we would not sell.”
“I will never forget that. I will never forget where I was,” she said. “And I wish I would have spoken up. I wish I would have said something then. I wish I would have had the courage to speak out and say that wasn’t right.”
