Alfonso Ribeiro’s wife, Angela, is set to give birth any day now. Ribeiro tells Steve Harvey that it is only a matter of waiting for his fourth child to arrive.
“My publicist will be trying to run out here and grab me because any second now, my fourth child might be entering the world,” the celebrity father tells Steve.
News of Angela and Alfonso Ribeiro expecting their third child together, his fourth, spread several months back. The couple shared a cute candid of his wife and sons, Anders and Alfonso Lincoln, rocking baby bumps in celebration of the impending arrival of the newest member of the family.
“Guess which bump is already kicking,” Angela shared online. “Baby Ribeiro due Spring 2019,” she added. Of course, Angela’s bump was the only one housing a baby. Still, Anders and Alfonso Lincoln did a great job of spreading the news.
In reflecting on his time as a father, Alfonso tells Steve Harvey that he wishes he would have placed an even greater emphasis on family during his early years as a parent. “We all get so focused in our lives trying to achieve everything that we want to achieve in the world that we forget why [we want to accomplish all of these things],” the celebrity father says. “It’s to enjoy the time with your family and the things that you want to do. So I would put more emphasis on being there just even more.”
Speaking of family, is there a possibility of a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot? “I’ve said that it’s unlikely to happen,” Ribeiro reveals. “Two things,” he continues. “One, there’s this guy. His name is Will Smith. He’s kind of busy, and he gets paid a lot to do movies. So I don’t see him coming back to get paid very little to do TV.”
There is also the issue of Uncle Phil. “I believe that once James Avery passed away, the core of what the show is, went away with him,” Ribeiro explains. “He is the foundation of that show,” the actor continues. “Now, I won’t say that there can’t be a spin-off, or a different kind of reboot, or something like that. That’s possible. But in terms of true Fresh Prince of Bel-Air remake, yeah … that won’t happen.”
“Never” is not always a definitive answer in Hollywood, though. “I’ll say, some things can happen,” Ribeiro concludes.
