For the past 30 years, Raven Symone has been a dominate force on and television. Having got her start at the age of 3 on the Cosby Show — she’s now 33 and looking to raise a family of her own.
About a year and a half ago, Raven’s Home premiered for the world to see and it brought Symone herself a lingering feeling of wanting to have her own children.

“I know that I am part of that generation where they say, “You are trying to be friends with your kids.” But I’m absolutely crazy and I want my kids to know that it’s okay to be your authentic self every morning, every day.”
