"Our Sweet Son"

Congratulations to Ashley Darby and her husband, Michael Darby, on the arrival of their son. The Real Housewives of Potomac (RHOP) star shared the exciting news of her newborn’s arrival on Tuesday (Mar. 2).


Ashley informed her social media fans that she was giving birth while enduring labor and delivery. “We are moments away from uniting with our sweet son,” Darby told her Instagram followers. “I’m experiencing every emotion in the rainbow right now,” the RHOP star said. Ashley took to Instagram Stories to share a glimpse of her newborn son after giving birth.

“Thank you all so much for the kind and warm wishes that you sent to us,” Ashley said in the video clip shared with her Stories viewers. “This is our sweet baby, born today. He is absolutely incredible and amazing. We are over-the-moon excited.”

Michael and Ashley Darby announced their expectancy last September. The celebrity couple let their son, Dean Darby, share the exciting news of the family’s expansion. “Dean has an announcement to make,” Ashley and Michael said in a video clip shared with their social media fans. “Baby D2 arriving February 2021.”

Ashley gave frequent updates throughout her pregnancy. The RHOP star admitted in one Instagram post that she had to adjust to the notion of being a mother of two kids.

“It’s really hitting me – these are the last moments of Dean being my only baby,” Darby shared with her social media fans this past weekend. “While I’m beyond words excited for our growing family, I have to give space and acknowledgment for the journey Dean and I have been on thus far,” the celebrity mom added. “He’s a magical little human and I count my lucky stars every single day that I get to be his mother.”

Dean celebrates his second birthday this year. You can watch Michael and Ashley Darby’s journey on archived episodes of the Real Housewives of Potomac.
