Ashley Darby, whose baby bump is growing bigger by the day, just posted a slew of stunning new maternity-style photos. In the images, The Real Housewives of Potomac mama-to-be looks radiant and carefree as she basks in the sun. In fact, it's hard to believe that this photo shoot almost ended in disaster! 

To caption one of the photos, Ashley wrote: "I had an elaborate shoot planned with a photography team and makeup, the whole nine yards. The photographer just canceled hours before the shoot and I was all types of upset." So, how did she morph into the beaming mama we ultimately saw in the photos? Ashley has her husband Michael Darby to thank for that. 

"Michael looked at me and said, don't worry babe we'll still capture the sunset. I'll take the photos. Now, my husband is quite a manly man who isn't a big fan of pictures. But without one complaint or any frustration, Michael took over 100 photos of Baby D and me. Of course I cried with appreciation and happiness."

Honestly, we even teared up a little when we read the rest of what Ashley had to say. "We come into this life alone and we leave it alone, but we can live it together. So thankful to have found a great partner who loves and supports me. WE ALL DESERVE TO LOVE AND BE LOVED."
