The actress/singer took to social media recently to share a sweet picture of herself having a ball of a time with her father at a carnival. 


Tatyana Ali is most known for her role as Ashley Banks in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but since then she has gone on to appear in a number of films and television roles, and also started a successful music career. 

Recently, the 39-year-old took to Instagram to share a photo of herself and her father at the Hollywood Carnival, reveling in the fun of the culture festival. 

Ali was the Grand Marshall at the event, and in the image she was wearing a large crown and a sash with her title splashed across it. 


Ali opted for a beautiful yellow and white button-down floral dress with black accents. The dress had a mermaid cut skirt that fell just above her ankles, a low neckline, and cut outs around her waist at her sides. 

She completed the look with a pair of black heels with gold accents, and a pair of dark orange drop earrings. Ali was also waving a flag pole with both the Panama and the Trinidad and Tobago flags on it. 

Her father opted for a black t-shirt with the event logo on it, a pair of dark jeans, grey trainers, and a red cap. 


While Ali was born in the US in New York City, her mother hails from Panama, with her father having been born in Trinidad and Tobago. The actress has always proudly displayed her heritage. 

In 2016, the actress gave birth to her first child, a son named Edward Aszard Rasberry, with her husband Dr Vaughn Rasberry. 


The sweet little boy was named after his grandfather and great-grandfather. 

Speaking about her experience as a new mother to Essence shortly after her son was born, she explained how unprepared she had felt after months of knowing she was about to become a mother. 

“It's so much fun,” she confessed, but added: “You try to get ready, but nothing can really prepare you for what actually goes on and what it's like.” 


But although her son did his fair share of crying in the first few months, she shared that it didn't matter, and that she only fell more in love with him every day, regardless of what he was doing. 

"Even when I'm on the other side of the house, I just think about him all the time,” she gushed. 

She also told the publication that although she had always wanted to be a mother, she hadn't really considered the possibility outside of a partnership, and only began to think about it after she met Rasberry.
