Tamera Mowry-Housley shared a photo of her and her husband, Adam Housley, on Instagram to promote the new interracial couple emojis.

As Madamenoire reports, Tinder, a popular dating app, announced that their petition for the interracial emojis was successful on Tuesday.

The post read:

Together with 50,000+ of you, we petitioned #unicode to #RepresentLoveby adding interracial couple emojis—and we WON. We’re honored/proud/every phrase expressing joy. Thanks to everyone that showed their support. ❤️

Current emoji options for couples do not allow users to select the complexion of the male and female images and are a default yellow color.

Dearly

On the same day as Tinder’s announcement,  Mowry-Housely posted in support of the new emojis with the hashtag “#RepresentLove.”

The daytime TV host wrote:

There’s never been an emoji to represent interracial couples like @adamhousley and me. But there’s gonna be, thanks to @tinder. I think love is beautiful, so put a🖐🏾in the comments with #RepresentLove if you’re with me! #Tinder_Ambassador

Over time, the post gained over 158,500 likes and over 10,000 comments, most of which appear to be positive.

One user commented:

Ok so you are like, the last person I thought would be a Tinder partner 😂 but this emoji thing is great! Finally, some inclusivity! And you and your husband are so cute together! Love you and your family! 💓

While plenty of others also commented under the mom’s post in support of the new digital images.

However, some fans feel the “The Real” co-host thrives on the fact that she has a white husband.

According to some Twitter users, they felt this was just another opportunity for her to show off her interracial relationship––yet again.

    Go Tamara! You love your husband and show it like it is. A loving husband and wife. Why do people have to find fault with everything? Those that are complaining, don’t you post pics with significant other? Nough said!
