(CNN) — Fans may still remember Tatyana Ali as little cousin Ashley on “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” but she is all grown up now.
The actress has announced that not only is she engaged to Vaughn Rasberry, the couple is expecting their first child.
“Planning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely,” Ali told “Entertainment Tonight.” “We want our ceremony to really celebrate our newest blessing.”
Ali, 37, said she and Rasberry met on the dating website eHarmony. The groom-to-be is an English professor at Stanford University.
“It was my first time dating online,” she said. “We wrote letters for months before we decided to Skype. And then, of course, met.”
As for their proposal, Ali said, her beau had it perfectly planned, taking her on a hike in one of her favorite spots: among the redwoods in Yosemite, California.
