Tamera Mowry is speaking out about her interracial marriage to entertainment journalist Adam Housley.

In an interview with Essence.com Tamera talks about her new marriage

ESSENCE.COM: You are no longer a single lady. Congrats on the big wedding! What’s married life like?

TAMERA MOWRY: It’s amazing! I feel like I have a lot more strength, and I have this person who has my back, and no matter what he’s going to be there for me. That just in itself makes me feel a lot more confident and a lot more safe. It feels amazing — it really, really does. Adam and I, we haven’t lived together, so we’re going through that right now. Moving is challenging, but it’s rewarding. That’s the best I can describe it. Because once you go through a challenging situation then you overcome it you’re like “yes, we can do this.” Adam has to do most of the moving so I kind of feel sorry for him in that sense. He’s moving into my place and one of the main things that we’re going through right now is that I don’t want him to feel like a visitor. It’s our place. We’re kind of going through the transition where you say “my place” and then you’re like, “no, wait, it’s our place.” Plus, saying “my husband”, that feels amazing too. There’s something that just goes through your body when you say those words.

Aw how precious… More photos and quotes from Tamera about her swirly matrimony-dom when you continue.

    I’ve been in an interracial relationship for seven years and there has never been a point where our races came into play. We have our inside jokes (i.e. He kids me when he knows I’m ready for a perm and one of my favorite exclamations happens to be “freakin white people…!”) But our relationship is as normal and natural as any relationship would be with two people of the same race. We have a son (and a daughter on the way) who doesn’t see the difference in his parents and really that’s the way it should be. He sees us as equals because that’s the way we treat each other. It’s funny that people still believe it’s more difficult to maintain an interracial relationship…

    I love her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great interview:)

  • kyra

    She answered the questions right. Most biracial people with both parents present dont want to be viewed as one or the other. They want to be mixed. Honestly, how can a mixed person relate to a black person when you was raised from an interracial marriage. my son knows he is mixed and recognizes that he is not black but still a boy of color. Colored people ars not just african americans. he gets to ne himself and doesnt run around trying to discover his african roots when his white fathet taught him how to be a man.

    they make a beautiful couple i wish them the best of luck on their marriage and ppl who are hating on inter racial relationships are just ignorant and miserable ppl who need to worry about themselves and not everyone and everything that surrounds them

  • Teyana

    @kyra honey aint no such thing as mixed ur son is black ok still a nicca on applications theres not a box to check for mix black n white people still c him as a black a** lil nicca who mom layed up wit a white man

  • Cici & Coco -The Besties

    Who is this teyana.. I was Teyana at first then switched it to cici & coco cause i got tired of teyana.. Hmm…. Anyway how do u know homocidal maniac isnt married she didnt say wasnt.. & honestly although it is the proper thing, just like college, marriage isnt for every couple. some ppl dont need the paper but theyre together for life. only the typical negro cotton picking minded would refer to a woman as a baby mama. You’re not God teyana. U can go head & take a seat somewhere cause love has no color. Im pretty sure ur very much single cause there’s no way any real man would wanna wife up a jacka– like u. You gotta lot of growing up to do sweetheart. Stevie wonder can see thru ur bull-hit

  • sunshine

    @ teyana there is a section for other and that is what my children use! being in an interracial relationship is no biggy we dont even realize it til we are around his family.

  • Juliemango

    Enjoyed this intervw. What stands out to me is her being free to be raw and catering to her husband!!!

  • tt

    “Other” who I the heck wants to identify themselves as other? Don’t you want your child to have an identity? And to the person who said her son doesn’t run around trying to find his African roots, well you better teach him he is half AA, if he or you won’t recognize it the world will give him a rude awakening. So sad when you lay down with another race and produce children ignoring their whole racial identity does no good get you head out of fairy land

  • homicidalbrainiac

    @ Teyana- why so abrasive? I didn’t say he talks about me needing a perm, I said the he kids when he know *I’m* ready for one (much the way I kid him when he needs a haircut by saying he’s fostering a mullet). We have a relationship based on love and mutual respect. If we do ever split, I’ll be fine because I’ve earned my degree and am independently financially very well off (plus having two children for a soon-to-be Nuerosurgeon is a pretty good investment for the future). @tt- wouldn’t Sunshine be ignoring her children’s entire racial identity if she *didnt* have them list as “other”? My son happens to look more caucasian than anything else, but I wouldn’t want him to downplay his black roots based on how people perceive him.

  • allym

    Beautiful couple. Race is irrelevant. The lady that said her mixed child embraces who he is (i.e. mixed) got it spot on.

  • Teyana
