She was only 11 years old when she shot to fame in the role of Ashley Banks, the youngest child in the Bel-Air household.

Initially she was just the "cute kid" on the show, but the world watched as she grew into a teenager over the sitcom's six seasons.

So what happened to the actress who played Ashley, Tatyana Ali?

Ali continued to work in the entertainment industry after the final episode of Fresh Prince aired in 1996 β€” expanding her horizons from acting to acting and singing.

In 1998 she had her musical debut, releasing her album Kiss The Sky, which went gold.

She then appeared in the cult flick Jawbreaker alongside Rose McGowan in 1999 and landed a role on The Young and the Restless.

Taking a step back from Hollywood, Ali studied at Harvard University, where in 2002 she earned a degree in African-American studies and government.

The 38-year-old is now married to English professor Vaughn Rasberry and they welcomed their first child, Edward Aszard Rasberry, in September 2016.

So thankful πŸ™ŒπŸΎ #bumplife @lancegross @iammoniquelauren @chrisgees
