Alfonso Ribeiro buys $2 million mansion

Alfonso Ribeiro has splashed out $2 million on a new eco-friendly mansion in Los Angeles.

The 44-year-old actor, who rose to fame playing Carlton Banks on 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,' has purchased an eight bedroom, solar-powered abode in upmarket Granada Hills.

The 'Dancing With the Stars' champion's new 7,500-square-foot property, which is located approximately one hour away from the neighbourhood that made him famous, boasts seven bathrooms, a grotto-style pool with a waterfall and a full outdoor kitchen with a brick pizza oven.

There is also a separate 1,500-square-foot guest-house on the grounds, according to gossip website TMZ.com.

News the actor has bought a bigger house is unlikely to come as a surprise, as his wife Angela Unkrich gave birth to their second child, Anders Reyn, in April and he previously admitted they are open to expanding their family further in the future.

When asked if he planned to have any more children, Alfonso, who has two-year-old son Alfonso Jr. with Angela and daughter Sienna, 12, from a previous relationship, said: "I know this one over here [Angela] would love to keep going."

The star, who hosts 'America's Funniest Home Videos,' has been busy recently. He returned to 'Dancing With the Stars' last week as a guest judge and also filled in for regular host Tom Bergeron on Monday night (05.10.15), as he was forced to miss the show to be with his sick father.
