When Ashley Darby’s older son, Dean, turned 3 on July 7, The Real Housewives of Potomac cast member made sure his day was special from the moment he woke up.

As Dean walked up to a dining table topped with gifts, including paddle ball, a bubble gun, and a toy car, he sweetly asked, “Mommy! What? This is for me?” Once Ashley confirmed that the presents were, in fact, his, Dean responded, “I want to open it.”

Later that morning, Ashley sang “Happy Birthday” as she gave Dean “a little breakfast treat,” a doughnut topped with pink frosting and sprinkles. “My cake doughnut,” Dean said with a laugh before blowing out a “3” candle.

Not only is Dean a fan of eating desserts, but as Ashley shared earlier this year, he likes to help bake them as well. In a March Instagram Story photo, Ashley showed Dean — and the counter he was sitting on — covered in batter as they made a birthday cake for her younger son, Dylan. “Baking with a toddler,” she quipped in the caption, adding laughing-crying emojis.

Once it was time to celebrate his little brother, Dean had one thing on his mind. “I want the cake,” he told Ashley in a video. “I want to get into that.”
