Tamera Mowry-Housley shared an adorable photo of herself and her 7-year-old son Aden via social media this week alongside an important message. The mom of two took to Instagram on Tuesday to post the sweet mother-son snap, which showed Aden plant a big kiss on his mom’s cheek during a dip in the swimming pool together.
In the photo, the former Sister, Sister actress turned The Real co-host snapped a selfie in the water as she spent some quality time with her only son.
Tamera rocked a light pink and white vertically striped swimsuit. She went completely makeup-free and looked at the camera with her obvious natural beauty on full show. She also proudly showed off her gorgeous natural hair as she let her wet, curly locks flow down.

Yes. I’m grateful to see all these posts speaking of how black lives matter. However, I pray it’s more than a black square or a post to you! It's about our actions. Yes, we all put our actions to service in different ways. But it’s about our daily actions. I believe prejudice/racism/discrimination in some ways are taught. It starts at home. How do we look at this from a parent's point a view? As parents, we have the responsibility to teach, to mold, to instruct, to do! But most importantly, BE the example. What kind of conversations are you having with your children? Yes, I am a product of an interracial marriage. My mom is black, and my dad is white. We visually saw the discrepancies and hurtful experiences of racism growing up. We had uncomfortable conversations about race, as young as eight years old, by the way. Some people won’t like you because of your skin color. Don’t listen to them. They are idiots! Dad would say. Black is beautiful! Keep your head up. And don’t let anyone tell you different! Mom would say. It starts at home. It’s never too late to start NOW! We have the responsibility of molding the future. Do you realize the power in that?! #BLM
Little Aden was on her left side and placed his hand around her neck to place a big kiss on her cheek.
The twosome enjoyed a fun pool day together when the snap was taken, and she shared a poignant message about motherhood in the caption.
“As a parent, it is my job to teach them — About love, inclusion, empathy, and most importantly, about how to be a good example in this crazy world,” Tamera wrote. “It’s the most important job I will ever have, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
Tamera, who is the twin sister of Family Reunion star Tia Mowry-Hardrict, added the hashtags “#mylittleman” and “#momlife.”
Plenty of fans took to the comments section to share their praise for the star and her latest upload.
“Tamera you are absolutely gorgeous and your spirit is unmatched!! You have a heart of [gold] and I just love your lifeeee!!!” one person commented.
“You’re the most amazing mom Tam, I adore you so much,” another fan said with a crying face and two red heart emoji.
“Beautiful! Aden and Ariah are so lucky to have you as their mama!” a third Instagram user commented.

The upload came shortly after the actress got very candid on the social media site in another very personal post she shared with her 7.8 million followers earlier this month amid the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests.
In a lengthy but important message, the mom of two opened up to her fans about seeing the “hurtful experiences of racism” while growing up as she reflected on herself and her siblings being raised within an “interracial marriage.”
