Tatyana Ali Engaged to Dr. Vaughn Raspberry, Expecting Her First Child

Tatyana Ali was planning her wedding to Dr. Vaughn Rasberry for later this summer, and that the couple was hoping to “really celebrate our newest blessing.”

Former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Tatyana Ali is engaged to Dr. Vaughn Rasberry — and the couple are expecting their first child, PEOPLE confirms.

“Planning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely,” she told Entertainment Tonight, adding that the pair will tie the knot late this summer.

“We want our ceremony to really celebrate our newest blessing! Plus, I have the best wedding planner, Michael Russo. He’s making everything so fun and stress free!”

So, how did the couple get this point?

The actress, 37, shared that they actually met online about a year and a half ago.

“Vaughn and I met on eHarmony!” she told ET. “It was my first time dating online. We wrote letters for months before we decided to Skype. And then, of course, met.’

After dating, Rasberry wooed his lady with what she considers the “perfect” proposal. The actress recalled to ET how the pair went on a “45-minute hike in the Redwoods [in Yosemite, California],” which she “absolutely loves.” While in the forest her groom-to-be got down on one knee in a “picturesque clearing,” and popped the question.

“Just the two of us,” Ali added. “It was so thoughtful and perfect. We’re best friends.”
