How Did Cairo Tiahna Hardrict Parents First Meet?
Cairo’s father Cory was an ordinary person when he first met his wife Tia. At the time, he used to work at K-Mart on the graveyard shift doing security.
It was in the late 1990s when the beautiful couple first came across. Cory was at the bus stop and coincidentally Tia and her twin sister Tamera were also there. The sister duo saw him waiting, and they asked to give him a ride. After the ride, Tony became good friends with Tia and his sister.
Back in Jan 2015, in an interview with Global Grind, the actor disclosed how their friendship started. He said, “I was waiting [at] a bus stop … Her sister and her drove by, they saw me waiting and asked to give me a ride. They gave me a ride, and we were friends ever since.”
Their Dating Life
After their first meeting, they went out a couple of times but didn’t start dating yet. As per sources, Tia and her now husband Cory took their relationship to another level in 2001. While they were in a relationship, the couple decided on not to indulge in any type of sexual activity. Likewise, they even didn’t go on a one-on-one date.
In an interview with OK! Magazine, she told,
“I just held out. We weren’t physical, we didn’t do anything for a while to make sure this was something special and this was something real,”
The actress further added,
“We courted each other for about a year. We didn’t go on dates with just him and I, there were other people around. We waited a year to kiss.”
Well, as they the rest is history.
After staying in a healthy relationship for six years, Cory Hardrict and his then-fiance Tia Mowry-Hardrict got engaged on Dec 25, 2006.
At that time, it was full of surprises for Cairo’s mother Tia. According to the actress, her long-time husband came over to her place suddenly and acted strange that day. He even went to the bathroom three times in 10 minutes.
Later, it turned out it was Cory’s master plan. Not only that but everyone in her house was involved in that plan.
The first aim was to give her a card that read,
“I just want you to know that I want to be committed to you, and with this promise ring I want to let you know that I love you and I want to work towards the near future.”
There wasn’t a ring inside the card, but her brother came over and gave her a piece of paper with “Psych!” written on it. After that, her other brother played the song “Let’s Get Married.”
After some wait, Hardrict came towards Tia and got down on one knee with a diamond ring (designed by Cory himself).
Are Her Parents Married?
A couple of years after their engagement, Cario’s parents Tia and Cory walked down the aisle on April 20, 2008. Their wedding took place at the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara with 170 guests in attendance.
During their nuptial, the bride wore a couture wedding gown by Kevan Hall. On the other hand, her sister Tamera, who served as maid of honor, wore an aubergine gown by Tadashi. Their wedding was planned by Robyn Golberg.
After their 30-minute of outdoor ceremony, a Midsummer Night Dream-style reception was held in the hotel’s ballroom.
Reason Behind Cairo’s Parents’ Long-Term Marital Relationship Without Any Ups & Downs
Before Cairo’s parents started dating, her father Cory was broke. The actor only had a studio apartment with no furniture and just slept in the corner for almost two years, when he moved to L.A. In an interview with Quick Fix, he said, “I was dirt poor, I didn’t have anything.”
Although Cory was financially weak, Hardrict’s mom Tia always supported him. Not only that but she even appreciated everything that he had.
Unlike any other media stars, the couple doesn’t seem to be having any extra affairs. Since their first date, the beautiful couple had a great bond. The year 2022 would be the 16th anniversary of their marital relationship.
