Alfonso Ribeiro: 'I get a lot of advice from Will Smith'


Alfonso Ribeiro is about to foxtrot his way to a "Dancing With the Stars" win, and no doubt, that's in large part to the expert instruction of his partner Witney Carson.

But when it comes to parenting, the 43-year-old actor, who revealed on the "DWTS" stage that he and his wife Angela Unkrich are expecting baby number two together, says he turns to his old "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" co-star Will Smith.

"I get a lot of advice from Will. He gives really great advice and really great life advice," Ribeiro dished to AOL. "But that's pretty much it. Parenting is an individual sport."

Smith isn't the only old cast member Ribeiro stays in touch with either. On Monday, his on-screen pals Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks) and Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), and Joseph Marcell (butler Geoffrey) showed up to support him as he danced his way to a perfect 40/40 score in his trio paso doble.

Despite his leaps and bounds as the "DWTS" frontrunner, Ribeiro claims it's Bethany Mota, Sadie Robertson, and Janel Parrish who are really taking the lead.

"The three kids, the three girls, they are the toughest competition because they're young and they have all the energy in the world and they're actually really talented. I couldn't put one in front of the other."

But if his next routines go as well as the last, it looks like he may be able to take home the big mirroball trophy. And Ribero, who caught up with AOL at the world's largest toast with Southern Comfort on Saturday at the Electric Run in Los Angeles, said he plans to put it front and center in his house."


"It's going right next to a trophy I have at the house. I won another reality show years ago so it will sit right next to them and next to two of my awards."

We'd toast to that!
