‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ alum, Tatyana Ali, and her boyfriend, Vaughn Rasberry, just made TWO incredible announcements and we could not be happier for the couple! Not only are Tatyana and Vaughn engaged, but they’re ALSO expecting their first child already! SUCH exciting news — congrats you two!
Talk about a double whammy! When it comes to sharing good news, we’re pretty sure no one had Tatyana Ali, 37, and Vaughn Rasberry beat on March 31 when the newly-engaged couple made, not one, but TWO huge announcements. The former Fresh Prince of Bel Air actress and her doctor boyfriend shared with the world that they are happily engaged AND pregnant! How amazing is that?
“Planning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely,” the actress, who played Ashley Banks on the hit sitcom, gushed to Entertainment Tonight, adding that the pair will tie the knot late this summer. “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!”
And stress free is exactly how Tatyana‘s wedding planning process SHOULD be, after all, she is with child! “I’m so excited for this new chapter. Wife and mommy all at the same time. Luckily, I’ll be sharing the adventure with my best friend. We feel so blessed,” the star wrote on Facebook once she realized the cat was out of the bag. We can only imagine how absolutely thrilled the couple must be!
Thanks so much everyone for all the well wishes!!! Looks like this is going to be a really full year 😍 pic.twitter.com/Edb7gTBjB5

Tatyana and Vaughn, an assistant professor at Stanford University, met online actually through the dating website eHarmony. And the actress definitely got lucky, as she revealed he was her first attempt at dating via the Internet — talk about fate! The pair even wrote letters for months before they Skyped. How romantic, right?
But that’s only the beginning of their romance of course, Vaughn’s eventual proposal to Tatyana turned out to be BEYOND adorable and “perfect,” according to the star. The pair went on a “45-minute hike in the Redwoods [in Yosemite, California],” which she “absolutely loves.” While in the forest her groom-to-be got down on one knee in a “picturesque clearing,” and popped the question.“Just the two of us,” Tatyana added. “It was so thoughtful and perfect. We’re best friends.” SO sweet! We are incredibly happy for the duo and can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.
