Tatyana Ali gave birth to her first child, E! News reports exclusively.
The 37-year-old former child star gave birth to a bouncing baby boy on Sept. 16, the actress’ rep confirmed.
“Tatyana is home resting comfortably with her newborn,” her rep said in a statement.
The baby’s father is Dr. Vaughn Raspberry, who met Ali on eHarmony 2 years ago. The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Beverly Hills in July.
Ali shared the joys of being a first-time mom on her pregnancy blog.
“Being pregnant is a magical time. I’ve discovered pregnancy brain is a true phenomenon-and for those who don’t know, it’s a mental fog, sometimes rearing its funny little head as forgetfulness or absentmindedness probably caused by all of the extra blood flow in the body and the huge doses of hormones I’m producing,” she joked. “I should probably make my disclaimer here: I am NOT a doctor.”
Pregnant women produce high amounts of the hormones Progesterone and Estrogen to prepare the uterus for the developing baby.
A pregnant woman has higher levels of hormones in 9 months than she does in her entire lifetime. Such high levels of hormones can wreak havoc on a woman’s body and brain.
Congratulations to the happy couple.
