Why RHOP star Ashley Darby’s two boys can’t meet their Australian family

EXCLUSIVE: Real Housewives of Potomac’s Ashley Darby says her husband Michael’s Australian family STILL haven’t met their two boys due to coronavirus travel restrictions

Ashley Darby welcomed her second child with her Australian husband Michael in March.

But the Real Housewives of Potomac star has revealed that her two boys have yet to meet any of their family members on Michael’s side due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia on Friday, the 33-year-old admitted that Michael is missing his family and that they can’t wait to take a trip Down Under as soon as they can.

‘His family in Australia hasn’t even met either of our children,’ she said.

‘And his nieces and nephews are also having children, so it’s like the Darby clan is expanding but we’re on different continents and it’s so tough,’ she continued.

‘You better believe I’ll be making a hop, skip and a jump across that pond quite soon, I promise!’

Ashley and Michael, 62, welcomed their first child, a son named Dean, in July, 2019.

She gave birth to their second child, another son named Dylan, in March, while she was still filming season six of the Real Housewives of Potomac.

The reality star suffered postpartum depression after Dean’s birth, but was able to avoid it with Dylan, partially due to eating her placenta. 

‘I feel like I was more aware on what to look for this time, rather than it sneaking up on me,’ she explained.

‘I was more aware of what to look for, the early signs, and I’m really thankful and appreciative that, even though it was a rough journey, at least it helped me prepare for this one.

‘I did a few things differently this go round. Eating my placenta for example, I think really helped. I’m a huge advocate for it!’

Former pageant contestant Ashley met Melbourne-born businessman Michael while she was working as a bartender in a lounge he co-owned in Washington, D.C.

He proposed to the stunner in a helicopter ride in 2012, and the couple officially tied the knot in 2014.

Michael has two children from his previous marriage, but he separated from his ex-wife in 2010 after 20 years of marriage. 

The sixth season of RHOP is currently airing, and rapper Nicki Minaj has been in talks with Bravo boss Andy Cohen about hosting the reunion special.
