"The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" actress, Tatyana Ali looks gorgeous in a picture she shared on her Instagram page. The doting mother seems to be looking forward to meeting baby number two.


The "R&B" singer is known for her famous portrayal of Ashley Banks in the NBC sitcom, "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." The mother-to-be shared a lovely picture with her adorable son on Instagram to the delight of her fans. In the image, little Edward Aszard Raspberry could be seen sitting on the same couch as his actress mother with a telephone glued to his cheeks.


Edward also had a goofy smile on his face as he kept his gaze fixed on his mother's who unlike her son was wearing a curious look.

The doting mother captioned the image,

“'Who are you calling?' I asked. He said, 'the baby in Mama’s tummy' - Already in cahoots."

From the caption, it can be deduced that the two-year-old is excited for the arrival of his sibling.

There was an outpour of love from fans who were not only excited about the picture but also intrigued that the new baby will soon be here. There were also lots of congratulatory messages.


During a talk with "Parents Latina," Ali shared details of the values she is trying to instill in her son and how he is being raised. The mother of one stated that she is very much interested in wanting her child to know about his heritage because it is inevitable; he'll at some point have to deal with race like she also did.

When she was asked how she'd train her child religion-wise, Ali said,

"I grew up thinking that there were many ways to have a relationship with God, and you could choose what worked for you. My husband was raised the same way, and we’ll continue on like that."

Even though Tatyana is of Latina descent, she confessed that she is not so fluent in speaking Spanish and when it comes to teaching her son the language, she said,


"My mom was given the assignment, and she takes it very seriously. Because my sisters’ and my Spanish is so-so, I think she sees it as a second chance!"


Tatyana and her husband, Vaughn Rasberry met on a dating app "eHarmony" in 2015 and ended up tying the knot on July 18, 2016. In that same year, they gave birth to their son, Edward.

Although the actress seemed to be well loved on social media, she has also had her fair share of backlash. In 2018, Tatyana posted a picture on Instagram which showed her breastfeeding her son with the caption,

“The more we see ourselves in each other, the more courage it builds in us to trust our hearts and our bodies. Be kind to yourself. #blackbreastfeedingweek #breastfeedingweek #breastfeedingweek2018 #normalizebreastfeeding.”

Even though she was trying to shed more light into the stigma surrounding breastfeeding moms, the message was lost, and most people chastized her for putting her b**bs on display on Instagram.
