It’s a boy! Actress Tatyana Ali and husband Dr. Vaughn Rasberry welcome their first child on Friday, September 16, according to a new report. Ali was mum on the baby’s gender, but documented her pregnancy via social media and in a blog she wrote:
Babies enter the world with no baggage. They carry little else but full potential. Pristine, now in the womb environment — where I’ve done my best to keep my body, mind and spirit clean — kicking and tumbling, trying to find space, my little one is protected by my flesh, my actions, even my thoughts.
I want my baby to be free. I don’t want her/him to ever feel trapped by anyone or any notion, whether it’s the world’s or of his or her own making. Someone brand new will be in our care, and I want this little one to gently become aware of the surrounding world without ever losing sight of the truth of who they are. I don’t want to unwittingly pass down social suggestions or my own baggage.
The 37-year-old is best known for her role as Ashley Banks on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Ali, married the Stanford University professor in a small ceremony this past July after meeting on the dating website eHarmony in 2014. In March, they announced they were engaged and expecting their first child.
Congrats to the couple!
