Here’s some news to make you feel OLD.
Tatyana Ali, or as I like to call her cute Ashley Banks from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, recently announced to Entertainment Tonight that she is both engaged AND pregnant! TWO FER!
The 37-year-old and her beau, Dr. Vaughn Rasberry, (YES THAT IS HIS REAL NAME HOW AMAZING IS THIS) are going to tie the knot this summer, in addition to expecting their first child together. Tatyana said:
“Planning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely. 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!”
I’m sure this is going to be very cute, as Russo did the weddings of Kevin Jonas, Joey Fatone, and Beverley Mitchell!
ANOTHER AMAZING DETAIL OF THIS STORY: the two met online! She explained:
“Vaughn and I met on eHarmony! It was my first time dating online. We wrote letters for months before we decided to Skype. And then, of course, met.”
And the proposal was an even sweeter story:
“He took me on a 45-minute hike in the Redwoods [in Yosemite, California], which he knows I absolutely love and proposed in the most picturesque clearing. Just the two of us. It was so thoughtful and perfect. We’re best friends.”
THIS IS AWESOME. Obvi, it’s April 1st, so I’m desperately hoping this is real and not some April Fool’s hoax akin to dumb Jon Lovitz engagement. But they did share this photo on twitter, which looks legit. Cross your fingers, y’all!!!
