Married at First Sight ’s Ashley Petta and Anthony D'Amico Welcome Baby No. 2

Reality stars and proud parents Ashley Petta and Anthony D'Amico just welcomed their second child.

The couple, who fell in love on Lifetime's Married at First Sight in 2016, told E! News that Ashley gave birth to the pair's second baby, a girl, on Feb. 3. They named their little one Vaeda Marie.

Ashley shared with us, "This pregnancy was not easy on me and the birth was even harder but meeting the new addition to our family made it all worth it! It was definitely love at first sight. We can't wait to get her home and introduce her to big sister."

Ashley and Anthony, who also share daughter Mila, 2, are set to star in Married at First Sight: Couples' Cam, premiering Feb. 4 at 8/7c on Lifetime.

In an interview with Us Weekly in 2020, Anthony gushed over how becoming parents has been the biggest joy.

"Mila has changed our lives in so many amazing ways and we couldn't imagine life without her," he said. "I don't think either of us has ever loved someone so much."

Ashley documented her pregnancy journey on social media. On Jan. 4, one month before her due date, she shared a photo of herself standing in Vaeda's soon-to-be nursery to Instagram, along with a message about self-confidence during this special time.

She wrote, "I'm definitely not the pregnant girl with the cute little basket ball [sic] in front that only gains weight in her belly... in fact I could barely pull these jeans up over my butt! but instead of obsessing over my weight gain this time around I have really been trying to enjoy being pregnant and embrace all the changes!"

She also shared how excited her daughter Mila was to welcome her sister in the caption of an Instagram video of the new baby's room.

"We are ready for you baby girl!" Ashley wrote. "This is the final nursery post I promise! I'm just so happy with how it turned out!⁣ Mila loves it too! She is always asking me to go see the rainbow."
