“Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” alum Tatyana Ali opens up about life and marriage.

Over the weekend, the 38-year-old actress attended the 14th Annual Step Up Inspiration Awards presented by Coach in sunny Los Angeles, where she dished to “ET” on her and husband Dr. Vaughn Rasberry’s relationship ahead of their one-year wedding anniversary.

“Hopefully there will be some traveling, but I would love to have my post-baby body back,” Ali said of possible anniversary plans. “I just need to be on a beach, in a bathing suit somewhere, so I hit my [weight loss] target.”

Though it appears that the couple hasn’t finalized their celebration just yet, Ali admitted she’s got her hands full, chasing after her 9-month-old son, Edward. “I play with my baby and I walk him all over the place. We’re always walking, that’s the biggest thing,” she said.

As for how the actress has managed to juggle both motherhood and a busy career, she revealed that she welcomes the challenge and wouldn’t have it any other way.

“It’s nuts and I’m tired, but I wouldn’t go back and have it any other way,” the Brooklyn native confessed. “It’s amazing. Everything feels full.”

She continued, “[My grandmother] told me to ‘make my own Heaven,’ and no matter where you are in your life, no matter what’s going on, whether you’re up or down, or you’re rich or poor or whatever, you can make your own Heaven.”

As previously reported, the actress and her now-husband, who met on eHarmony, tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Beverly Hills, California, on Sunday, July 17, 2016.

In September, the couple welcomed a son, Edward. “We’re completely swooning over this kid,” Ali wrote in a blog post for People at the time. “When I kiss him in his sleep, soundly in REM, dreaming his baby dreams, he smiles and my heart explodes out of my body and into all of the space surrounding us.”

Happy anniversary to Tatyana and her leading man. Show them some love in the comment section below.
