The Real Housewives of Potomac star, Ashley Darby, is pregnant and expecting her first child! Ashley and her husband, Michael Darby, have been wanting a baby for some time and have suffered a miscarriage in the past. Now their prayers have been answered and they are going to have a bundle of joy. They went back and forth about when they wanted to have a baby, and their relationship has had many ups and downs. However; they seem to be on track now. According to The Daily Dish Ashley said, “I’ve always wondered what this would feel like, carrying a being inside of my body. But actually being pregnant is more incredible than I could have imagined. Through all of our past heartbreak, this is the most incredible gift we could ever receive.”
Ashley’s baby is due in July 2019. As far as the baby’s gender, that is being kept a secret. Will their be a gender reveal party on the RHOP? Ashley told People, “We have the results in Michael’s desk drawer at work, but we might do a sex reveal, that’s still a toss-up in the air. But for now, it’s just really hypothesizing if it’s going to be a boy or a girl based on the heartbeat, the shape of the belly, the condition of my skin, all those things that are supposed to be predictors of the baby’s sex.”
Ashley shared the first baby bump photo:
The couple is weighing their options of baby names, but they haven’t made their final decision yet. This is Ashley’s first child and Michael’s third, he has two children (27 and 24) from his first marriage. Ashley has been wanting to have a baby and this was shown on the RHOP. However; they were originally waiting until they broke even on their restaurant, Oz, located in Arlington, Virginia. During the season 3 reunion of the RHOP, they revealed that they had started trying for a baby. They also shared how they ended up suffering a miscarriage after two weeks. Ashley shared on her Bravo blog, “When I had the tragic miscarriage, Michael was very upset and I think he realized that he wanted to have a baby more than he originally thought. That was a very special moment for me because now I know that we are really making the right choice to have a family together.”
Congrats to them! Ashley has been wanting a baby for years, so I’m happy for her. A baby is a blessing! I’m looking forward to when the RHOP returns.
