“The Game” actress shared a picture of her actor husband, Cory, having a ball with their kids, Cree, 9, and Cairo, 2, in a pool. With nothing but pure joy on all three of their faces, Cree looks on as Corey lifts a laughing Cairo overhead.
“The best dad @coryhardrict The #love he has for his children. #priceless #cree and #cairo,” Mowry captioned her sweet photo.
The 42-year-old “Family Reunion” star, who’s been married to 40-year-old Hardrict since 2008, attributes the success of their relationship to sticking with what they know works for them, regardless of outside opinions.
“The thing I value the most about our relationship is that we never follow trends,” Mowry told People. “We’ve never followed what other people thought we should’ve been doing, we’ve always followed what was right for us.”
Mowry is also appreciative of the strength and support that her “All Eyez on Me” actor husband showed during her fertility journey that led to the births of their two children. “Cory and I met in 1999, started dating in 2000, and got married in 2008. Three years later we ended up having my son Cree,” she continued. “My pregnancy journey wasn’t easy, and I’ve been very open with my infertility issues, but my husband was very, very supportive. Then in 2018, I gave birth to my daughter Cairo, which was again, very challenging, but we’ve overcome a lot and here we are today, married for 12 years.”
Seeing the positive representation of a Black father looking overjoyed while playing with his kids warmed fans’ hearts.
“This picture of Black man being a dad. Need to be seen for society more. That our men are valuable. Stop killing them. You see what left behind their children. Thank you for sharing this priceless moment.,” wrote a follower.
“The love in his eyes as he smiles at Cairo, heart melting ,” a second remarked.
“This is so beautiful ,” a third noted.
“The love he has for his children is written on his face and translated by his eyes,” praised a fourth.
“These are some Very priceless moments!!! I Love it!!,” exclaimed a fifth.
