Tatyana Ali, the actress best known for her role as Ashley Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, has confirmed she is not only getting married but also expecting her first child!
The 37-year-old actress confirmed her happy news, stating, “Planning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely. We want our ceremony to really celebrate our newest blessing! Plus, I have the best wedding planner, Michael Russo. He’s making everything so fun and stress-free!”
Tatyana also gave details on how her fiance popped the question. She stated, “He took me on a 45-minute hike in the Redwoods [in Yosemite, California], which he knows I absolutely love. And proposed in the most picturesque clearing. Just the two of us. It was so thoughtful and perfect. We’re best friends.”
Tatyana’s fiance is Dr. Vaughn Rasberry, who the actress actually met on eHarmony over a year ago. Rasberry teaches African American Studies as an Assistant Professor at Standford
