The Mowry sisters are ready to meet again after being apart for more than six months - the longest time they have seen without each other.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Tamera Mowry-Housley said she and her twin Tia Mowry have not been together in person since the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the United States in March.
"I live in Napa and then there was a wave in LA and just when we actually wanted to go there, there was a wave in LA and it wasn't wise for all of us to go," said Tamera, 42, explained. "We wanted to meet, [Tia] is working on family reunions and the time it didn't work out. But I know when we see each other it's just us, we're going to cry."
Tamera added to the outlet that her family has bi-weekly online meetings to keep in touch.

"Every two weeks we zoom in on each other and have a happy hour," said the mother of two. "We have a glass of wine, we talk about what happened."
While Tamera said that she and Tia "text me almost every other day," it's something to see your loved one visually, but of course there's something better, just the human connection and touch - and the hug, and me can't wait to do that. "
Ahead of World Mental Health Day on Saturday, Tamera recently told PEOPLE that exercise had helped keep their spirits up during the ongoing pandemic.

"Movement and movement of my body really helped me mentally when the pandemic hit us," she said. "When we were all quarantined for so long, I really discovered the importance of now that I had time to get back into exercise."
"I'm a firm believer in making lemonade out of lemons, so I wanted to use the time wisely," added Tamera, who partnered with Zumba to encourage everyone to take time out, mentally and physically. "I discovered that I felt better when I was exercising and moving my body. I felt better for myself - not just physically, but mentally."
