"Real Housewives of Potomac" star, Ashley Darby had her first child in July 2019. This came after she defended the honor of her husband, who was accused of 'butt-grabbing.' When Darby gave birth to Dean Michael, everyone was happy for her, but the question that lingered in everyone's mind was; how would she cope with being on the reality television show and being a mom to a cute little dude? This is the problem that most celebrity moms face, especially when they are at the peak of their careers.
However, Darby has proved beyond doubt that she is a super mom and she may just be open to the idea of bringing another beauty into the world. According to the actress, the arrival of 'Tink' as she calls him has helped to bridge the gap in her relationship with her husband. Most couples face challenges when a new-born enters into the family, but so far, Darby mentioned that she is in a good place and so is her husband, Michael. This is more than amazing news to fans of the star actress.
During season 4 of 'RHOP' Ashley's husband faced a series of allegations from different women. Some accused him of sexual assault, and others spread rumors of him being attracted to men. Some women also mentioned that Michael was not in a real marriage with Ashley Darby. This was enough to wreak havoc between the couple, but Darby stood to her husband's defense on the show and in public. While facing these bitter moments in her life, Darby went through a heart-rendering experience when she had a miscarriage.
To help her get through what she was going on, Monique Samuel, who had suffered the same fate, but later gave birth to a baby boy invited Darby over to share mommy moments with her. This helped the actress a great deal and by the end of season 4 of 'RHOP,' Darby was pregnant with her son. The actress expressed how she felt saying that she never believed that a day like that would come. At this time, the rumors about her husband, Michael subsided and the couple was able to focus on the most important person in their lives.
Darby recently posted a family photo on Instagram where they were all dressed in Superman's themed costumes. Fans had once criticized the actress for sharing pictures of herself breastfeeding Tink, but she says that it is important for black women to engage in the act.
It seems like parenthood has been great for Darby and her husband as she revealed to EW that she is making plans for a second baby. The actress disclosed that since the birth of their baby, things have been going smoothly, and it would not hurt to have another glorifying moment.
We wish the actress and family well.
