Angela Ribeiro, the wife of American actor and television personality Alfonso Ribeiro,  posted an adorable video of their daughter Ava on her Instagram feed. The little girl was seen scurrying around excitedly in a dinosaur museum.


Angela Ribeiro posted an adorable clip of their daughter Ava running around a huge dinosaur museum during a family outing. In the video, the one-year-old was having a good time as she ran around the spacious museum. She was clad in an adorable green top and matching pants with cute brown slippers.

Ava's hair was slightly tousled as she gazed with bright eyes at the gigantic dinosaurs on display, clearly captivated. When asked by her mother what a dinosaur says, Ava mimicked the sound with a cute little growl.

She then pointed at the T-Rex on display that had its huge jaws wide open. Angela seemed more than impressed by her daughter's enthusiastic response. She captioned the post:

"The cutest dinosaur growl you ever did hear…"


Alfonso and Angela welcomed baby Ava into the world in May 2019. The excited father made the big announcement through an adorable photo of the bundle of joy on his Instagram feed.

The photo showed the sweet little girl catching a snooze in a tiny striped cap. The star further explained that the baby sent her mother to the hospital on Mother's Day and that both of them were doing fine.

Alfonso revealed that when he was younger, he had prized all the trips he made and wanted his kids to have a lasting first-hand experience with the world.


The couple tied the knot in 2012 and share three beautiful kids, 5-year-old Alfonso, 4-year-old Anders, and the new arrival, Ava. The actor also has a 17-year-old daughter, Sienna, from a previous marriage.

The family shares a tight bond and they habitually go on annual family trips. In an interview last year, the 49-year-old shed more light on the importance of the yearly vacations. 


He divulged that traveling was the greatest way to educate the family. He added that though one can read about things in books, nothing leaves a more lasting impression than personal experience.

The star further revealed that when he was younger, he had prized all the trips he made and wanted his kids to have a lasting first-hand experience with the world. In a bid to imbibe the traveling spirit, the family goes on an annual road trip to Iowa to visit his in-laws. 


Besides being a fantastic father, Alfonso made a name for himself in the Hollywood scene. He shot himself into the limelight at 12 years old with his role in Broadway's "The Tap Dance Kid" which earned him much acclaim.

He also starred in the hit TV series, "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" alongside actor Will Smith. The star then took part in a season of "Dancing With The Stars" of which he brought home the trophy. Evidently, Alfonso was born for a life in entertainment.
