An absolutely glowing (and might we add, very pregnant) Tatyana Ali was photographed wearing this stunning, form-fitting blue gown at BET’s Black Girls Rock event last Friday in Newark, New Jersey.
While we couldn’t stop staring at her statement diamond necklace while rocking ourselves back and forth muttering “they grow up so quickly”, we had to make a double/ triple take at the rock on her finger!
The 37-year-old actress (yes, 37!) revealed her engagement to long time boyfriend Dr. Vaughn Rasberry, plans to have their wedding later this Summer and of course dropped the baby bombshell on us!
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Ali gushed about her new fiance.

“Vaughn and I met on eHarmony!” Tatyana said. “It was my first time dating online. We wrote letters for months before we decided to Skype. And then, of course, met.” Tatyana also revealed how the good doctor proposed to her.
“He took me on a 45-minute hike in the Redwoods [in Yosemite, California], which he knows I absolutely love,” she said. “And proposed in the most picturesque clearing. Just the two of us. It was so thoughtful and perfect. We’re best friends.”
“Planning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely,” Tatyana added. “We want our ceremony to really celebrate our newest blessing!”
Dare we say, Aunt Viv would be proud!
Tatyana Ali’s father is Trinidadian of East Indian descent.
