Michael had left the hospital so that he could look after their other son, 19-month-old Dean Michael. Ashley was tearful because she wanted the whole family to be together and missed Dean terribly.

Ashley announced that she was pregnant in September 2020 and kept her thousands of Instagram followers updated with pictures and videos of her baby bump.
She revealed that she was expecting another child by having Dean pose wearing a white shirt with the words "I'm gonna be a big brother" on it in a picture on social media.
Ashley's husband was accused of sexual assault by a cameraman on a show.
Ashley shared the baby's gender with an elaborate scheme. Michael had to ride his bike around Washington, D.C., and eventually reached a blue banner that said it was a baby boy.
The couple had welcomed their first child in July 2019 but expressed that they wanted to expand their family further. Almost a year and a bit later, they got their wish. Ashley said:
"There’s no hiding this big belly anymore! We are elated to share our news with you."
