Tia Mowry “held out” on her husband for a year when they started dating.
The Sister, Sister star has revealed that not only did she insist on a chaperone when she began dating husband Cory Hardrict, but she wouldn’t even kiss him until they’d been together for twelve months.
“I think the one thing I did do was I just held out,” she admitted to OK! magazine during a press junket for her new romantic comedy Baggage Claim.
“We weren’t physical, we didn’t do anything for a while to make sure this was something special and this was something real. That’s what we did. And also my husband…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. That’s basically what I did.”
Tia now shares a two-year-old son, Cree with her actor partner and is happy that her wait-and-see tactics paid off. She insists her marriage is now thriving but she does admit that having a child has dramatically changed the relationship.
The 35-year-old actress revealed that she now keeps the passion alive through role-play and unusual beauty treatments.
“We’ve been together for 14 years and we had a baby and it changes the dynamic of a relationship a little bit,” Tia explained.
“I do believe you have to keep it alive and fresh and I did take up a burlesque dance among other things. And there’s this thing called the v-steam, which is a steam for your va-jay-jay and let’s just say my husband said it worked.”
Baggage Claim, which also stars singer Robin Thicke’s wife Paula Patton, will reach cinemas in September.
