Ashley Darby Husband, Kids, Married Life
Ashley met her husband Michael Darby in 2010 in one of his bars. As Micheal briefed it, he saw Ashley at the security monitor located at the front desk. He then went to the desk and had a chat with her.
Slowly and steadily, the pair began to meet more, and before they noticed they were already in love. Later, on May 17, 2014, Ashley and Michael got married in an intimate ceremony despite their 29 years age gap.
While for Ashley it was her first marriage, Michael was married once already. Michael’s previous marriage ended through a divorce in 2010; he had two kids from his first marriage.
Ashley and Michael too are blessed with a beautiful son named Dean who turned 1 year old in July 2020. However, Ashley and Michael expressed they still wanted one more child.
True to their wish, in Sept 2020, Ashley broke the news she was going to become a mother of two. On 2nd March 2021, the reality star gave birth to their second bundle of joy. Their second son’s name also began with the word D.
Like every other marriage, Micheal and Ashley too had many problems in their marriage. The situation turned foul for Michael and Ashley when Micheal found himself in a scandal in RHOP Season 4.
The scandal that involved him and ROHP cameraman, Orville Palmer, went as far as to the court. Palmar claimed that Michael grabbed and groped his butt during a cast member, Monique Samuels’ baby shower. While charges of such sort would normally result in 11 years of prison, Montgomery County court dismissed all the charges due to inadequate evidence.
And yet again, Michael had found himself in another scandal. In a leaked video of May 2020, Michael was seen sleeping with another woman who was not Ashley.
In the late-Aug 2020 RHOP episode, Ashley learned of Michael arriving at a club full of exotic dancers. The subsequent episodes saw her confront him about the sighting.
