Ashley Darby's Birthday Party for Dylan as He Turns 3

Ashley took to Instagram over the weekend, where she documented all of the highlights of Dylan's big day.

First, Ashley started at home, where she posted a photo to her Instagram Story of Dylan sitting at the kitchen table in his pajamas, surrounded by balloons and toys. "Some pre-party fun for my buds," she wrote over the photo. "Happy Birthday, sweet Dylan!"

But they didn't stay in the house for long, they headed to a new venue where he and his older brother, Dean, who turns 5 in July, were able to live their best lives. In a video, posted to her Instagram feed, Ashley showcased all of the highlights from Dylan's birthday bash, planned by Michael — from the bouncy houses, to the photo booth. Dean, Dylan, and the party guests were able to run around and play video games, laser tag, and get all of their energy out before feasting on macaroni and cheese, cotton candy, and birthday cake.

Judging by the video, this party seems like what a 3-year-old boy's dreams are made of. "Dylan was so excited for the amazing party his daddy put together for his 3rd birthday!" she wrote in the caption of the video. "So much fun seeing all of his friends from school and enjoying the carnival games! This party was fun for all ages."

Ashley Darby and Michael Darby's Co-Parenting Update

Although Ashley and Michael have been separated for nearly two years, their divorce has yet to be finalized. Still, during a Feb. 4 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Ashley opened up about co-parenting Dean and Dylan with Michael. 

"Watching him with my kids and seeing how they light up when they see their dad, that kind of stuff touches me," she told the show's host, Andy Cohen.

"We are no longer parallel parenting," she added. "We are officially co-parenting. That's a big deal for us, y'all. I didn't know if we would ever get here, but I appreciate, especially Gizelle [Bryant], she always said 'It'll get better. It'll get better,' and she was right."
