American actress Tatyana Ali of "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" fame shared a cute picture on her Instagram page showing her and her two sons, Edward and Alejandro reading a book. 


When Tatyana Ali spends time with her sons, Edward and Alejandro, one of the things they do is read books. The doting mom shared a glimpse of just how she and her sons do this in a recent post on Instagram. 

In the post, the actress, 41, shared a picture that showed her sons beside her, joining her to read the book, "All Because You Matter" written by Tami Charles.

The adorable boys cuddled with their mom as they read from the pages of the new book which was published on Tuesday. The cover of the book had the face of a little boy. 

Ali wore an African print dress and accessorized with big, round earrings. She looked solemn as she read from the book. In the caption to the post, the actress wrote

“This is how we’re keeping sane during the madness- pouring love into our children. #AllBecauseYouMatter...”


Many of the actress's 698,000 followers liked her post while a few others commented on it. One delighted fan described the picture as the best on their feed and gushed over Edward and Alejandro's curly hair. 

A second fan revealed they just ordered two copies of the book for their son but it was yet to arrive. The fan further noted that the book must be a good read for Ali to have posted it. 

The show's cast was reunited to mark its 30th anniversary with plans for a reunion special reboot project.


Ali and her husband, Dr. Vaughn Rasberry, welcomed their first son, Edward, on September 16, 2016. It marked the beginning of Ali's journey to motherhood. 

In a chat with Essence at the time, the 41-year-old talked about the first few weeks of being a mother to Edward, saying it had been a blissful and exciting ride but a big adjustment for her. She also said

"It's so much fun. You try to get ready, but nothing can really prepare you for what actually goes on and what it's like." 


Ali and Rasberry welcomed their second son, Alejandro on August 15, 2019, though they revealed the news of his birth a few months afterward. 

In an Essence article, Ali opened up about her pregnancy journey and the unique realities and joys of a Black woman's pregnancy and how it helped her on her journey to motherhood.


Ali found Hollywood fame while starring in "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" which was a hit comedy series in the 90s. The show's cast reunited to mark its 30th anniversary with plans for a reunion special reboot project which will debut on HBO max. 

In a chat with ET, Ali opened up on the reunion special, saying fans are in for a lot of surprises, though she did not reveal further details about the project. Fans continue to anticipate the premiere of the special which will air on Thanksgiving.
