Don’t ask Tatyana Ali of she is having a boy or girl because she doesn’t know. The actress shares her reason for not wanting to know the sex of her and fiance Dr. Vaughn Rasberry’s child.
“We have chosen to keep the sex of our child a surprise. The only person who knows is our doctor,” Tatyana tells PEOPLE. “Friends and family have so much to say about our choice,” she adds,” but we wouldn’t have it any other way. It is so much fun to have people guessing and betting when they are around us.”
The guessing game is quite amusing for Tatyana and Vaughn as well. “I sit or lay, sometimes Vaughn lays his head on my belly and we dream,” she tells media. “Besides being healthy, which we are so thankful for, we know nothing. For us that means that anything is possible!”
Ali further explains, “If we knew the sex, we might decide things about our baby’s future that we have no right to decide — that our little boy will love athletics like his father, or our little girl should be sent to dance school like I was when I was young. We may unwittingly predetermine a course for our child that is ridiculous or just plain wrong.”
Tatyana Ali and Dr. Vaughn Rasberry are expecting their little one to arrive in coming months. The bundle of joy will be their first child together.

Violet brings out my inner child self, and she is a blessing in my life.”

How sweet is this? Iyanna Mayweather, daughter of boxer Floyd Mayweather, celebrated her sixteenth birthday in style with a star-studded party hosted by dad. Fat Joe, Drake, and Future were three of many celebrities to attend the bash in Las Vegas.
Floyd selected the beautiful Mirage Hotel as the venue for his daughter’s bash. The celebrity dad had everything from cake to extravagant activities for Iyanna and her friends to enjoy. “This party was very, very expensive,” Floyd told TMZ Sports. “But when it’s for my children, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do.” Rumor has it that Mayweather paid seven figures to make his daughter’s Sweet 16 bash a success.
Performances at the party certainly didn’t come cheap. Instead of simply having a DJ at Iyanna’s celebration, Floyd opted for Drake and Future to give live performances. The star artists got the crowd hype with their collaboration of “Jumpman” and wished Iyanna well on her special day. Justin Bieber was unable to attend but sent his love by way of video montage.
Floyd Mayweather has four kids. Iyanna is the star athlete’s oldest daughter.

She told Jamie that she had the song on her phone but it was dead. “These kids are so grown,” Foxx responded after laughing.

Here is your dose of cuteness this morning! Blue Ivy Carter showed off her personality and skills at a dance recital this past weekend. Beyonce and Jay-Z watched from the audience as their daughter performed with other members of her class at the Wilshire Ebell Theater in Los Angeles.
Blue gave lots of energy during the presentation. She held one hand high as she grooved to the music playing in the background. The youngster was surrounded by other members of her dance group who were also excited to perform. Beyonce was happy as well as she was seen smiling after the recital. The celebrity mom was photographed while holding hands with Jay-Z, which is always a good sign.
Rumors about the Carters’ marriage began to circulate several years back when video footage of Bey’s sister, Solange, attacking Jay-Z in an elevator was released. Many accused Jay-Z of having an affair and believed such allegations to be factual after Beyonce’s song ‘Sorry’ from her newest visual album, Lemonade, referenced “Becky with the good hair.”
Regardless of what the couple may have endured, Beyonce expressed her desire to “rebuild” in her album. Blue Ivy Carter is Bey and Jay’s only child. See a snippet of her cute dance recital presentation below!

Kim Kardashian-West, North, and other members of the family enjoyed a trip to Disneyland earlier this week. The star family took full advantage of the rides and food offered at the theme park.
Kim celebrated her hard work in getting to her goal weight by eating a churro. The reality star was definitely in mommy mode as she was casually dressed and carrying North on her hip. North walked around the park as well. The toddler wore Minnie Mouse ears during the day and later got all dolled up in princess attire. “The girls got princess make overs at the Bibbity Bobbity Botique,” Kim exclaimed on Instagram. “I’ve never seen anything sweeter! Thank you @Disneyland for the magical memories!”
Kim has two kids with her husband, Kanye West. The celebrity mom recently shared the challenges of parenting two small children with media. “It seemed like every time Kanye and I would go out, we would see couples—or really anybody that had kids—and everyone would say, ‘Wait until you have two.’ Like it’s the end of the world,” she said. “It really is so hard,” Kim admitted.
“When I had North [West], all I did was feed and sleep. This time around, I get no sleep. Every waking second that I’m not with the baby, I’m with North,” Mrs. West explained. “I actually think the harder parts aren’t with the newborn but with the toddler! I feel like I go into overdrive to give my daughter attention and make her feel loved.”
Kim and Kanye West welcomed their son, Saint, on December 5, 2015. North will celebrate her third birthday next month.
RJ Peete will let nothing stand in the way of his dreams. The oldest son of Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete is taking on the world of fashion as a model.
Photographer Andrew Macpherson recently chose RJ to model in a feature spread about living with autism. “In front of the camera [RJ] was bright, alive and exceptionally self-aware,” photographer Andrew Macpherson wrote on Facebook after the shoot. “His ability and history of giving voice to those less fortunate than himself is what inspired me to call our story The Ambassador,” Macpherson added.
Holly Robinson Peete was also impressed by her son’s skills. “You think you know your kid and his limitations, then BAM! He just surprises you,” she told media. “One of the most gratifying things about being a mom is when your kids exceed your expectations.”
RJ celebrated his eighteenth birthday last October. He and his twin sister, Ryan, are the oldest out of Holly and Rodney Peete’s four kids.
Monica Brown and the kids had an adventurous time at the zoo earlier this week. The singer and her daughter, Laiyah, joined Rodney and Romelo on a class trip to the park.
Laiyah was the fashionable one who wore shoes that bore her name. The outfit was definitely custom-made as her shirt also featured her name and a similar design. Laiyah was photographed while showing off her cute shirt. “Thank you @ms_takia_customs for this adorable ensemble Laiyah is wearing,” Monica wrote. “She looooves her top & shoes… She’s not hesitating to strike a pose.”
Monica often shares the joys of parenthood with Instagram fans that include quality time spent with her little ones. “My top family values are valuing things of true value and those are the things that can’t be bought,” she shared during a recent interview with Uptown magazine. “My children come first, so balancing has become very easy for me — maybe not as much for those that work with and for me — but I don’t mind sacrificing work because the moments missed in a child’s life you can never get back.”
Monica and husband Shannon Brown have one child, Laiyah, together. Rodney and Romelo are Monica’s kids from a previous relationship.
Happy Birthday Anders! Alfonso Ribeiro and his wife, Angela, celebrated their son’s first birthday earlier this week. Angela orchestrated a party for her little one that revolved around balls.
“I wanted the party (which served as the first official party thrown at our new house–woohoo!) to revolve around Anders’ favorite things and cute little personality,” the celebrity mom tells her blog readers. “Since he is OBSESSED with balls, I thought he would be delighted with a yard and pool littered with his favorite toy…beach balls, bouncy balls, and literally any and every ball we owned. And indeed he was!”
Anders enjoyed the abundance of balls at his party and engaged in the many activities Angela and Alfonso presented at the bash. Angela truly outdid herself as she had a bouncy house along with a pool filled with beach balls in which guests could take delight. The celebrity mom even created a “Watch Me Grow” board that featured photos of Anders from birth to present day. Angela’s centerpieces and cupcakes were perfect for those with a sweet tooth.
“Overall, it was a fabulous and fun day of celebrating our little one-year old on his first birthday,” the celebrity mom wrote. Angela and Alfonso Ribeiro have two kids, Anders and Alfonso Jr., together. Alfonso also has a daughter named Sienna from a previous relationship.
Ayden Nida is 6-years-old. The oldest son of Apollo Nida and Phaedra Parks celebrated his birthday a few days ago.
Mom threw her son a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed party. The tiered cake featured the four ninjas peeking out of a trash dumpster and the city beneath them. Ayden took a deep breath before blowing out the candles placed around the second tier of the cake. “Happy Birthday to my Prince! He is hands down the smartest and sweetest six year old I know,” Phaedra told fans.
Phaedra rented out Stars & Strikes bowling alley in Atlanta for her son’s party. Porsha Williams and several other celebrity friends were in attendance at the bash. “With my boo @phaedraparks #HappyBirthdayAyden,” Porsha captioned underneath one picture.

This is the second year that Ayden has celebrated his birthday in the absence of his father. Apollo pled guilty to fraud several months ago and is now serving eight years in prison for crimes committed.
Phaedra discussed her reality of single motherhood with media last year. “I think being a single mom is tough because you’re the sole provider and you have all the responsibilities on your shoulders,” she admitted. “Just knowing you don’t have a partner to rely on is tough, but you know, you just have to pull up your boot straps and keep going.”
Phaedra Parks has two sons, Ayden and Dylan, with Apollo Nida.
