Ashley Darby from The Real Housewives Of Potomac and her husband Michael Darby have officially welcomed a son into the world!

The baby boy was born last night, while Bravo aired The Real Housewives of Potomac.

Both Ashley, 31, and the baby are healthy. MTO News has confirmed.

Ashley announced the birth last night on Instagram.

The reality star said, “I never thought this day would come. When I learned I was pregnant, I started thinking about when I’d feel the first kicks.” 

“Then, when I was feeling the flutters, I wanted to know when I’d finally start to show. After watching the bump grow, my mind went to birthing day (WILL THIS REALLY HAPPEN?!) And when the day finally came that this sweet child came into our world, it felt like the sunniest day after a sky filled grey,” she continued.

“The most sensational day of our shared life. Mickey and I are savoring every moment with our wonderful son,” Ashley added.

“This is the happiest day of our life!” the Bravo star wrote on her Instagram Story. “What a beautiful day we had.”

On the Season 3 reunion of “RHOP,” Ashey revealed that she previously suffered a miscarriage. It was the second time she ever experienced one.

“I had one when I was in my early 20s, so now I’m worried if something is going on with my body,” Ashley told Andy Cohen. “But I feel like it kind of brought us closer together in a way that I didn’t really expect.”

On the show’s current season the couple has shared their journey of trying to conceive again. Ashley confirmed she was pregnant again this past February.

“I’m not the most emotional person, but I shed some tears,” Ashley told People. “And then Michael started crying. And Michael, who is a very stoic person, when he cries, I start balling. It was like a share of waterworks between the two of us! It just was a blessing that was bestowed upon us.”

Michael has two adult children from a previous relationship. However, this is his and Ashley’s first child together.
