Tatyana Ali Gives Birth to Her First Child

Entertainment & Celebrities / September 23, 2016

Tatyana Ali is officially a mom!

According to E! News, they are confirming that the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star and husband Dr. Vaughn Raspberry welcomed their first child into the world.

“Tatyana gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on Friday, Sept. 16,” the actress’ rep says. “Tatyana is home resting comfortably with her newborn.”

The happy news comes after the actress chose to keep the sex of her baby a secret. It also comes just a few short months after the actress enjoyed a romantic wedding ceremony where she exchanged vows in front of 120 guests at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills.

“It was truly a magical and heartfelt ceremony,” wedding planner Michael Russo shared with Entertainment Tonight. “Tatyana was glowing as she walked down the aisle.”

In between planning a wedding and preparing for motherhood, Tatyana was able to find some time to write about her experiences and all the emotions she was feeling.

During her pregnancy blog with People, the R&B singer expressed how expecting a little one truly is a “magical” experience.

“Being pregnant is a magical time. I’ve discovered pregnancy brain is a true phenomenon—and for those who don’t know, it’s a mental fog, sometimes rearing its funny little head as forgetfulness or absentmindedness probably caused by all of the extra blood flow in the body and the huge doses of hormones I’m producing,” she joked. “I should probably make my disclaimer here: I am NOT a doctor.”

And while the sex of their baby kept them more than excited, Tatyana and Dr. Vaughn couldn’t help but be curious as to what their newest family would be like.

“For us, the joy of parenting will be to discover who we have been given the privilege to care for, protect, nurture and guide,” she wrote to People. “We’ll wait for our baby to show us who they are, starting on their birth day. Until then, we’re happy to live in the fertile soil of dreamland, where anything is possible.”

Congratulations to the parents on their new arrival.
