Ashely Darby is known for donning head-turning looks on Real Housewives of Potomac. From itty bitty bikinis to cutout jumpsuits to mini dresses and more, Ashley always looks stylish even when pregnant. So, it was hard for the 31-year-old to understand why new moms and all moms, for that matter, couldn’t pull themselves together and put on some makeup and cute clothes.
But now that’s she’s a new mom herself, Ashley seems to be singing a different tune.
The new mom is now apologizing for previously judging other moms’ postpartum fashion choices.
In an interview with Bravo’s Lookbook, the Real Housewives of Potomac star admits that she regrets shaming moms for their appearances prior to experiencing motherhood herself.
Ashley says she used to call out moms for wearing sweats and no makeup; insisting it isn’t that hard to put yourself together even with kids.
Now Ashley is eating her words. The RHOP star has traded her stylish wardrobe for comfy sweats since giving birth to her first child.
And realizes that the struggle is real for new moms – and all moms.
“I live in sweatpants and a sweatshirt,” Ashley admits.
“When people said that — it’s so true,” she confessed. “To all the moms who I have ever been like, ‘Girl, come on. Just shower and come out.’ I’m so sorry. It’s really not easy. Still, I always was like, ‘Oh my God, you had the baby. Let’s keep moving.’ But, it’s really not like that at all.”
