AceShowbiz - Earlier this month, Ashley Darby gave birth to her first child, a son named Dean Michael, with husband Michael Darby. The married couple opted not to show the baby boy's face following his birth, but now fans have finally gotten a close-up look at the little bundle of joy through the latest issue of PEOPLE.
In the first photo, Dean was shown lying on a white fur as his body was wrapped in a blue blanket. Meanwhile, the second photo saw him being held by his mother, who flashed a smile to the camera next to her husband. Ashley shared the photos on her Instagram page, revealing that Dean weighed in 8lbs., 1oz at the time he was born.
Posting the two images apparently wasn't enough for "The Real Housewives of Potomac" star because she later followed it up with a picture of Dean taking a bath. "Dean the Bean. So fresh and so clean clean!" Ashley wrote in the caption.
Ashley gave birth to Dean on Sunday, July 7, announcing the happy news through an Instagram picture that saw Michael cradling their bundle of joy on a sofa near her hospital bed. In an interview with PEOPLE, Ashley admitted even though she wasn't able to sleep and suffered from "little aches and pains that come with motherhood," she had been "overwhelmingly happy."
"Seeing this little being that was inside my body just a few weeks ago is just mesmerizing for me," she said of her son. "It's so crazy how much he's changed from when he was first born to even the second week. He looked like me and now he looks more like Michael. He's a cutie!"
As for whether the couple is looking to add more member to their family, Ashley revealed that her husband had been talking about having another child despite previously saying that he had "some limitations." She said, "He actually has been changing his tune a little quicker than even I expected, and he's already talking about another child. ...It's almost a when, instead of if."
