    Tamera Mowry is opening up once again about her interracial marriage to Fox News correspondent Adam Housley.

    Just a few months after Mowry and Housley were forced to defend their relationship against racist internet commenters, the 35-year-old actress is opening up to Ebony magazine.

    "Honestly, growing up, I [just] knew I was going to marry a Black man," Mowry told the mag. "But, as I grew up, I learned to just be open. I just wanted to be with someone who was confident around me and who I felt comfortable being myself with."

    Mowry and her man tied the knot in Napa Valley in May 2011 and welcomed their son Aden on Nov. 12, 2012.

    Earlier this year, Housley defended their marriage, saying "The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sad...it is pathetic."

    "Yes, I am white. Yes, she is half-black. Marrying a white man does not erase her color and marrying a woman who is half-black does not mean I am blinded," he said. "The problem isn't pigmentation...the problem is backwards, bigoted thought from people who should know better."
