The wait is finally over. Tia Mowry-Hardrict has finally let the world know her daughters name.
Just shy of eight weeks after giving birth, Tia posted a sweet video on her Facebook page revealing she and hubby Cory Hardrict named their new bundle of joy Cairo Tiahna Hardrict.
Back in March Cory told Hiphollywood that their daughter’s name starts with the letter C, to match their 7-year-old son Cree and would mean victorious.
We guessed Collette, but Cairo is even cuter.
It also has extra-special meaning for Cory, who wanted the letters “A,” “I” and “R” in the moniker — inspired by a plane trip he took (“He always feels like he’s closer to his mother when he’s up in the air,” says Mowry-Hardrict).
Of baby Cairo’s middle name, the 39-year-old new mother of two reveals having “Tia” in it was a big plus but in addition, “Tiahna actually means ‘follower of Christ.’ Also, Tiana was one of the first African princesses, so she is our little princess here!”
Tia also revealed that she had a C-section and it was a very emotional day for Cory who could hardly wait to meet his new daughter. Moments before she was born he posted a picture of himself in tears on his Instagram page.
The couple announced their daughter’s arrival on Instagram May 6, with Mowry sharing a photo of herself and the newborn in the hospital along with her birth stats: 6 lbs., 4 oz., and 19.8 inches long.
“Feeling grateful and blessed as we welcome our little baby girl into the world!” the couple wrote in the caption, going on to add, “We are in heaven 🙏🏽.”
