‚ÄúPlanning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely,‚ÄĚ she told Entertainment Tonight.

Ali and Rasberry plan to get married this summer, and they’re wrapping up the details for the wedding.

The actress, 37, shared how she met her future husband.

‚ÄúVaughn and I met on eHarmony!‚ÄĚ she told¬†ET.¬†‚ÄúIt was my first time dating online. We wrote letters for months before we decided to Skype. And then, of course, met.‚ÄĚ Rasberry is a Howard University grad and an assistant professor of English at Stanford University.


Ali said she experienced the perfect proposal. The actress said they went on a¬†‚Äú45-minute hike in the Redwoods [in Yosemite, Calif.],‚ÄĚ and while they were in the forest, Rasberry got down on one knee in a ‚Äúpicturesque clearing‚ÄĚ and popped the question.

‚ÄúJust the two of us,‚ÄĚ Ali¬†added. ‚ÄúIt was so thoughtful and perfect. We‚Äôre best friends.‚ÄĚ


Congrats to the happy couple!
