"The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" star Tatyana Ali recently took to her Instagram page to post cute photos of her breastfeeding one-year-old son Alejandro alongside a lengthy message to her followers.
Talented actress and singer Tatyana Ali shot into national recognition with her portrayal of Ashley Banks on the popular NBC sitcom, "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" from 1990 to 1996.

Recently, the mother of two uploaded photos showing her breastfeeding her youngest son, Alejandro. In the photo, Ali could be seen lying next to her son as he sucked on her breast.
While sharing the photos, Ali penned down a lengthy message to her followers, highlighting the importance of breastfeeding children. She wrote:
"Good morning. This week I'm celebrating #blackbreastfeeding!…"
In her message, Ali revealed that she breastfed her older son for two years without interruption. She concluded her message by urging her followers and other moms to avoid using bottles and breastfeed their children.
Ali and her husband, Dr. Vaughn Rasberry welcomed their second son, Alejandro Vaughn, on August 15, 2019. The proud mother documented her second pregnancy on her Instagram page and broke the news of his birth via the same platform.
The couple also shares another son, Edward Aszard, 3, whom they welcomed in September 2016. In a similar trend, the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" alum gave her followers a first glimpse of her son in a cute Instagram photo.
Ali has evolved over the last three decades from an adorable child star.

Over the last few years, Ali has reduced her screen time to focus on raising her kids and teaching them the right morals and values. During a past interview with Parents Latina, she spoke candidly about her parenting style.
The beautiful actress explained that she has a laid back approach to parenting. Still, she emphasized that she is teaching her son to appreciate his cultural heritage, including his Panamanian and Trinidadian roots.
Ali and her husband are doing a great job of raising their kids away from the spotlight. The couple met back in 2015 on eHarmony, an online dating platform. Barely a year after meeting, they tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Beverly Hills.
Ali has evolved over the last three decades from an adorable child star who won the hearts of many into a dedicated family woman who dotes on her kids incessantly.
