Motherhood is actress Tatyana Ali‘s biggest role yet, and the new mom is enjoying every second!

On Friday, Sept. 16, Ali and her husband, Dr. Vaughn Rasberry, welcomed their first child, son Edward Aszard Rasberry, at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles.

Ali tells ESSENCE the first weeks of motherhood with her new son, named after his grandfather and great grandfather, have been blissful, exciting, and of course, a big adjustment.

“It’s so much fun,” gushes Ali. “You try to get ready, but nothing can really prepare you for what actually goes on and what it’s like.”

From the moment Ali and Rasberry met their new son, it was love at first sight. “He’s the sweetest,” says Ali. “He’s so sweet, and so far, really chill. I mean obviously he cries, he’s a baby, but [when he does] I just fall more in love. Even when I’m on the other side of the house, I just think about him all the time.”
