Fame caught up with Tavior Mowry at a very young age. Many anticipated this as he is a sibling to popular entertainers – Tia and Tamera Mowry, the famous television star twins and Tahj Mowry who has earned abundant public admiration as an actor and dancer. Nevertheless, it is imperative to point out that the major bulk of Tavior Mowry’s popularity came from him being a former talented footballer who played for the University of California, Davis, as well as his works in the music industry.
A Sneak Peek Into Tavior Mowry’s Celebrity Family
Tavior Mowry was born to ex-veteran parents Timothy and Darlene Mowry on the 5th of July 1993 in Fort Irwin, California, United States. He is the last child in a family of 6. Tavior has twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry and a brother Tahj Mowry. His parents are of the middle class and he was able to have access to most of his wishes during his childhood days as they lived a comfortable life. His family is said to have come from a mixed ethnic descent of English and Afro-Bahamian.
The former athlete grew up being surrounded by a family composed of celebrities. Consequently, people tend to wonder whether Tavior’s stardom was just as a result of his famous family members rather than his talent as a former footballer and equally a music producer, as he was born into the world of already rising stars. His brother who is 7 years older than he is and his sisters who are 15 years older than him were already into the world of acting and pageantry before he was born and had already made a name for themselves and their family.
Although, prior to his birth, his family was already famous, now, the music composer added to his fame through his works in the entertainment industry. Below are more details about his parents and siblings.

After completing their high school education, the lovebirds tied the knot in 1975.
Following their service in the United States Army, the two were stationed at Gelhausen, Germany after their marriage, as Timothy was a first sergeant while Darlene served as a drill sergeant. There in Germany, the couple welcomed their twin daughters, Tia and Tamera Mowry before moving to California, where their daughters began their careers in showbiz. Consequently, Darlene Mowry started working as their manager, while Tim served as a custody officer in Glendale police department during such time.
After staying married for 40 years the couple signed the divorce papers in the year 2015 and the reason for the split remains private till now. Subsequently, Tim began dating an Asian girl known as Nana, while Darlene has kept her love life on the low down. Beyond working as her kid’s manager, Tavior Mowry’s mom has also served as the producer of many TV films including Seventeen Again (2000), The Proof Point (2001), and Double Wedding (2010). The Mowry family still share a strong bond to date despite the divorce.

Yesterday, 26 years ago #sistersister premiered on #abc and I am forever grateful for such an incredible experience! This show changed by life forever! Many don’t know this story, but my sister and myself went around from network to network and pitched this show. All we did was talk to big executives and tell our personal stories. We did not even have a script to act with. Additionally, we had only been in L.A. for 3 years. We did not have much experience on television, however that didn’t stop us! Go for dreams and never give up! Don’t stop! Believe in yourself. Don’t let someone else write your story, you be the author of your book. Shout out to my #sistersister #family @marqueshouston @jackeeharry and @timski67 I love you guys and always will forever 🙂 💕

How The Former Athlete Makes His Money
Although several sources have estimated that Tavior Mowry is worth between $1 million and $1.5 million, he hasn’t made his present earnings public and his net worth is yet to be deduced. Nevertheless, Tavior ought to have accumulated an impressive fortune for himself through his collegiate football playing career and equally, his successful works as a music producer and composer.
He began his football career while attending Westlake high school. He was one of the best players on his school’s football team and his outstanding performance of having rushed 3,278 yards, and done 43 touchdowns merited him the All-Marmonte League honoree twice. His good records gained him entrance into the University of California, where he attained a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology in the year 2015 and also, was on the football team.
Tavior was known to play on the offensive, at the position of the running back for the Golden Bears. He was his team’s star player before his promising career and dream of becoming a professional American footballer was ruined by a career-ending injury. While at the University of California, the former athlete played only four games in the 2012-13 season as a result of an injury set back. However, he registered 17 carries, 15 rushing yards, and 87 all-purpose yards.
Then in the next season, Tavior stepped up his performance on the field, as he played in nine games and recorded 53 carries, 37 rushing yards, and 184 all-purpose yards. Afterward, the highly-skilled running back never played football again after sustaining a grievous injury. He, however, tried to earn a living by working as a wine salesperson in California, but later decided to ply his trade in music, following in the footsteps of his older siblings who have established themselves in the entertainment industry.

I aspire to be the best Tavior Mowry that I can be. There is no one that can be me better than me. When I think and act with that mindset, comparing starts to seem petty. And to be honest, if you're shooting for someone else's spot, you could very well be aiming too low. Be you. There's only one. 📷: @meadavenue
