Alfonso Ribeiro and wife Angela recently welcome their third child, a baby girl named Ava Sue. The blue-eyed beauty is quite the stunner in recent pics shared by the proud parents, who can’t stop gushing about her.
Ava Sue Ribeiro is only a 3-month-old and already melting hearts all over Instagram with her cuteness.
In a recent pic posted by Angela Ribeiro on Instagram, Ava donned a white polka dot onesie while resting on a snuggly pillow, and charmed fans with her big bright blue eyes while sucking on her thumb.
“Two blue eyes and a thumb. #thumbsucker,” Ribeiro captioned the adorable photo, earning dozens of comments from fans that, like her parents, couldn’t gushing about little Ava.
“I love how this little QT kind of resembles an old man with that hairdo!” wrote one user.
Another added, “ Such a cutie, she looks like her brother's in this pic.”
And a third one pointed out,
“Such a beauty...just like her mommy.”
Alfonso and Angela Ribeiro announced they were expecting their third child last November with a hilarious pic that depicted Angela showing off her baby bump, and their two sons Alfonso Jr., 5, and Anders, 4, sporting fake baby bumps as well. Alfonso is also the father of 16-year-old Sienna.
On May 14, the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star took to Instagram to share the news of his baby’s arrival by posting a pic of the sleeping newborn wrapped in a white blanket and knitted hat.
“Ava Sue Ribeiro finally decided to send @mrsangelaribeiro1 to the hospital on Mother’s Day and came into our world early yesterday morning,” he explained in the caption. “Both Ava and Mommy are doing great. Thank you, Dr. Jason Rothbart, for an amazing job.”
Ava was welcomed by her big brothers with open arms, and according to Angela, the kids are obsessed with their sister.
The boys are so in love with little Ava that Alfonso Jr. came up with a crazy idea that he shared with Angela and she later shared with the world.
According to the dotting mom, the boy told her that he wants to marry her sister. Taken aback, Angela explained that she’s glad he loves the baby girl, but he can’t marry his sister, to which AJ replied:
“But I have to marry her. I’m going to tell the guy that she isn’t my sister and say she has a different last name and pretend I’ve never seen her. Then the guy will let me marry her.”
The interaction left fans in stitches, ogling at AJ’s naivety and pure love for the little girl.
“So, sweet!!! Love how obsessed he is with her, hope they have a very special bond. Just not the one he’s thinking about right now,” one fan joked in the comments.
For Alfonso Ribeiro, it’s essential to take his family on trips and let them learn about the world with the first-hand experience.
“I think travel is the greatest way to educate your family on people,” the 47-year-old told Closer Weekly. “Yes, you can read about things in books, but nothing lands and sticks with you throughout your life than personal experience.”
Each year, Alfonso and his family go on a road trip to Iowa to visit his in-laws, and he says that the kids love the experience, as he explained:
“If you live in a concrete jungle like New York City, just getting out and seeing the trees and seeing nature and seeing animals in the woods and the mountains … it’s just a wonderful experience, and it’s things that you never forget.”
This year’s family trip will be the first one as a family of six—including Sienna—and although he admitted there were no plans yet, Alfonso is always ready to create new memories that will “naturally will stick with you your whole life.”
