For those of a certain age, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will forever be held in high regard as a classic. Alongside Will Smith, Carlton and co, Ashley Banks was one of the most loved characters on the show.

Actress Tatyana Ali was 11-years-old when she first appeared in the hit sitcom as Ashley. Now 37, she reflected on her new found love in an interview with People.

Tatyana, who played the character for six seasons, confirmed that she and her partner, Dr. Vaughn Rasberry, are engaged and expecting their first child. Talking about the wedding, she said:

“Planning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely.”

And A Perfect Proposal

The lucky couple met on eHarmony, which Tatyana says was her first time dating online. The relationship blossomed quickly, and Vaughn set up the "perfect" proposal. She added:

“It was so thoughtful and perfect. We’re best friends.”

The pair, who met a year and a half ago, are set to have the wedding ceremony later this year.

Since rising to prominence on Fresh Prince, Tatyana has modelled and released music as an R&B singer, as well as juggling her acting career. Her most notable roles since have been on TV shows Love That Girl and The Young and the Restless.
