Tia Mowry was focused on the importance of setting “boundaries” in the days before her announcement that she and Cory Hardrict are getting divorced.
While walking the red carpet for Variety’s Power of Women event on Sept. 28, the “Sister, Sister” alum opened up about how making changes has allowed her to “glow.”
“You know what it is, it’s self-love. I’m really, really just focusing on setting boundaries,” she told “Access Hollywood.” “I’m in my 40s, and I’m just now learning [how hard it can be]. All of you ladies out there, no matter how old you are, start now! It’s really given me peace and joy.”
Mowry, 44, announced on social media Tuesday that she and the “All American: Homecoming” actor, 42, decided to go their separate ways after 14 years of marriage and two children: 11-year-old son Cree and 4-year-old daughter Cairo.
“These decisions are never easy, and not without sadness. We will maintain a friendship as we co-parent our beautiful children,” she wrote alongside an old black-and-white photo of the pair.
“I am grateful for all the happy times we had together and want to thank my friends, family and fans for your love and support as we start this new chapter moving forward in our lives.”
Mowry filed for divorce from Hardrict hours before her Instagram post, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the cause of the split, according to court documents obtained by Page Six.
She requested joint physical and legal custody of their kids and noted they have a prenup in place.
Mowry and Hardrict met as undergrads at Los Angeles’ Pepperdine University before tying the knot in April 2008.
