Sister, Sister alum Tamera Mowry probably knows a little bit about sibling rivalry.

So it likely came as no surprise when her and husband Adam Housley's son Aden, 3, was a little wary about this past summer's new addition to their family: The couple's second child, baby daughter Ariah.

"Alden's first response [was] giving her a nickname. Her saw her in this little glass basket at the hospital and said, 'Baby sisters. That's Ry-ry.' We thought that was the cutest nickname for her! When we brought her home, that's when the jealousy began," the 37-year-old actress told Mini, a parenting magazine, which features her on the cover of its holiday issue, and in a gorgeous photo shoot with Ariah.

"It was a challenging three months, but once she turned four months old, he was fine as she started to take him in," she said. "Aden would make her laugh and she recognized him. They're cool and he loves to give her kisses now."

Tamera also talked about balancing motherhood and her career.

"My husband really helps me," she told Mini. "When I'm at work, he tells me to check out and meditate for 10 minutes."

The actress and twin sister Tia Mowry rose to fame on the '90s comedy series Sister, Sister. After it ended its six-season run in 1999, Tamera went on to appear on shows such as Strong Medicine, Roommates, and most recently, Melissa & Joey. She and Tia also appeared on the reality show Tia & Tamera between 2011 and 2013. Tamera currently co-hosts the talk show The Real.

In her interview with Mini, she was asked if she would be open to a Sister, Sister comeback. She had a two-word response: "Yes! Absolutely!"
