Cory Hardrict and Tia Mowry are one of the sweetest celebrity couples and from what Mowry has said about her husband, you can tell that she thinks the world of him. Now Hardrict is doing a bit of sharing about his wife and her amazing qualities. In a recent interview withBlogxilla, the actor talked about the moment when they first met and how he was in a hard spot financially when he crossed paths with his future wife.

“I had odd jobs. I worked at K-Mart, graveyard shift, security. That’s when I was just grinding man,” Hardrict said. “I met my wife during them days. She was with me. She was just coming out of Sister, Sister, but they had everything man and I didn’t have anything. I had a studio apartment, sleeping in the corner, no furniture for almost two years.”

Hardrict recalls how kind Mowry was to him and that she gave him a chance when he didn’t have much to his name.

"I was waiting on a bus stop—after I shot my first film. Her sister and her drove by, they saw me waiting and asked to give me a ride,” he said of the first time they met. “I was embarrassed. I was downtown. They gave me a ride and we were friends ever since. They took me to Inglewood, so that’s how that relationship started. We were friends, we started dating and it just went from there.”

After dating for six years, the couple married in 2008 and welcomed their first child, Cree, in 2011.

“I think it was what my wife saw in me. She saw an honest man who had a dream. I just had a vision, man. I didn’t come in selling no games,” Hardrict said. “I feel like a man can just hold his own and be a man. I don’t have to play no games with nobody and she respected that and it was what it was.”
