Congratulations are in order! Tatyana Ali, one of the stars of Fresh Prince of Bel Air, will tie the knot this summer and she’s expecting a baby!
The actress says she met her husband-to-be, Dr. Vaughn Rasberry, online about a year and a half ago and the rest is history.
“Vaughn and I met on eHarmony!” Ali, 37, reveals to ET. “It was my first time dating online. We wrote letters for months before we decided to Skype. And then, or course, met.”
“Planning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely,” says Ali. “We want our ceremony to really celebrate our newest blessing!”
She dishes on wedding plans and the “perfect proposal.”
“I have the best wedding planner, Michael Russo. He’s making everything so fun and stress free,” she shares. Russo is noted for planning a number of celebrity weddings so the former actress is definitely in good hands.
As for how Rasberry popped the question; “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,” she gushes. “It was so thoughtful and perfect. We’re best friends.”
Ali took to Twitter to thank everyone for the well wishes.
