May 7 (UPI) — Tia Mowry was feeling grateful after giving birth to a daughter.
The 39-year-old actress shared a first photo with her baby girl Sunday on Instagram after welcoming the infant with husband Cory Hardrict.
Mowry posted a picture of herself nursing her daughter in her hospital bed. The mom-of-two shows a smile as she gazes down at the newborn.
“Feeling grateful and blessed as we welcome our little baby girl into the world!’ Born May 5th at 10:29 am at 6 pounds and 4 Oz 19.8 inches,” she captioned the snapshot. “We are in heaven.”
Mowry and Hardrict married in April 2008, and also have 6-year-old son Cree Taylor. Mowry struggled to conceive both of her children due to her battle with endometriosis.
“I don’t think I could have gotten through this process without the support of my husband,” the actress told Women’s Health in February. “I think it’s really important that someone is there encouraging you, rooting you on, saying you’re not alone, helping you feel stronger and more powerful.”
“I find when you go through some kind of struggle, the reward is jus so much greater,” she added. “Now, I’m so overjoyed!”
Mowry is known for playing Tia Landry on Sister, Sister, and has since starred on the series The Game and Instant Mom. She presently hosts the Cooking Channel show Tia Mowry at Home.
