Former Spouse - Darlene Mowry

Timothy was previously married to Darlene Renee Flowers who later on changed her name to Darlene Mowry after her marriage with him. The two first met when they attended the same high school in Miami. They eventually went on to work in the U.S. Army together.

Timothy and Darlene were together for about four decades and gave birth to four kids from their marriage. Though they were together for so long and shared children together, they couldn't maintain their marriage for infinity which led to their divorce in 2015. Following their divorce, the estranged couple still appear together in family gatherings and events.

Four Children

As we mentioned earlier, Mowry is a wonderful father of four kids from his previous marriage with Darlene. His children include two twin daughters: Tia and Tamera Mowry-Housley and two sons: Tahj Mowry and Tavior Mowry. 

Tamera is the firstborn among his kids and twins as she is just two minutes elder than her twin sister Tia. Tahj is the third child and Tavior is the youngest among the children of Timothy.

Tavior's father is a former U.S. Army who served the nation for over a decade. During his time in the military, he was able to hold the rank of first sergeant (1SG) along his ex-wife. He also lead the battalion while he was in the service. He was in the military when his twin daughters were born. After his family shifted to California for the bright future of his daughters, he retired as an army and later started working at a police department in Arizona.

Moved to California for Daughters

When Tia and Tamera were 12 years old, they convinced their parents to move California so that they could pursue career in acting and modeling. Their mother, in turn, agreed to move to the state if they became successful in getting job within the first month first of them shifting there. 

As promised, the twins were able to land jobs of appearing in commercials and small roles in TV shows. After that, the family shifted permanently to California and Timothy started working as a jailer or custody officer of the City of Glendale Police Department.
