"I Never Thought This Day Would Come"

Congratulations to Michael and Ashley Darby on the arrival of their son. The Real Housewives of Potomac couple welcomed their bundle of joy this past weekend.


“I never thought this day would come,” Ashley told her Instagram fans. “When I learned I was pregnant, I started thinking about when I’d feel the first kicks,” she added. “Then, when I was feeling the flutters, I wanted to know when I’d finally start to show. After watching the bump grow, my mind went to birthing day (WILL THIS REALLY HAPPEN?!) And when the day finally came that this sweet child came into our world, it felt like the sunniest day after a sky filled grey. The most sensational day of our shared life. Mickey and I are savoring every moment with our wonderful son.”

Ashley and Michael Darby shared the news of their expectancy back in February. “Very excited to share this special news with you my loves,” Ashley told her social media fans. “Michael and I are thrilled to welcome a bundle of joy into our lives. The most incredible gift imaginable!”

Michael and Ashley shared the gender of their child in May via a skydiving adventure. The RHOP couple released blue powder to inform fans that they were preparing for a baby boy. “Mickey and I are so happy to share this incredible news with you, as we prepare for this amazing gift to come into our lives,” Ashley shared online. “We are beyond words excited,” she added.

The Darbys’ newborn son is their first child. Stay tuned for more Real Housewives of Potomac news!
