She has a dog named Tucker and, according to BlackFilm.com, is a mother of three with a husband who is deployed:

Ashanti will make her series regular debut in "Army Wives" as “Latasha Montclair,” a force of nature and an indomitable spirit for whom “southern hospitality” isn’t just a concept, it’s a way of life. Latasha finds joy in navigating the daily chaos of singlehandedly wrangling her three children while her husband, “Quincy” (Joshua Henry, Godspell, The Scottsboro Boys), is deployed overseas.

NEW GIG: Ashanti LANDS Leading ROLE On Lifetime’s “Army Wives”


"The Woman You Love" singer Ashanti has landed a new gig, in addition to her FUSE Tv show, in Hollywood on Lifetime’s hit drama "Army Wives." Find out who she’s playing inside…..

Ashanti is making big moves in Hollywood having landed a series regular role on Lifetime’s "Army Wives."  Ashanti, who’s been taking on acting roles since her 2002 appearance on "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch," will play Latasha Durant on the Lifetime series. Her character is described as "an optimistic mother of three, a sexy, fun woman who knows how to keep a husband – and how to keep him in line"

Ashanti isn’t the only new addition to "Army Wives" as the series has also hired Torrey DeVitto and Elle McLemore as regulars. The show starts filming Season 7 in mid-December in Charleston, South Carolina. 

Hmmm.  This is one of my fave shows and not sure how Ashanti’s going to mesh with the rest of the very talented cast.  Apparently, a few of the roles are now going to recurring status with one of the lead roles, Kim Delaney, leaving the show entirely.  So now’s Ashanti’s chance to make a name for herself on tv….
