The Real Housewives of Potomac cast member shared the happy news on September 8 in an adorable Instagram post. This is her second child with husband Michael Darby. The couple welcomed a son, Dean, in July 2019.

"Dean has an announcement to make... Baby D2 arriving February 2021," she confirmed on Instagram, adding, "There’s no hiding this big belly anymore! We are elated to share our news with you! To say we are thankful is an absolute understatement."

When she spoke to The Daily Dish earlier this summer in a phone interview, she opened up about wanting to have more kids. "Most definitely. I mean, seeing how wonderful Dean is and Michael is just such a hands-on dad. I would really have a football team if I could, but out of respect for my partner, you know, I’ll stick with two," she said back in June, noting that she is "100 percent ready for a baby now."

As for why Ashley was ready to give baby Dean a sibling, she noted, "People say have kids younger. It’s easier to keep them together. Also Michael is very aware of his age and he wants to be around for as long as he can with his kids. So, we’re definitely trying to have our children back to back."
