Sometimes women like to wait a while to tell people when they are pregnant. RHOP decided to keep her news to herself and not share with her costars.
On the most recent Real Housewives of Potomac episode on Sunday, Ashley Darby found out that she was pregnant. She admitted that she was not going to tell any of her costars about the pregnancy. Darby went to a party with her fellow Bravo stars Karen Huger, Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, Candiace Dillard, Monique Samuels and she refused her normal drink which is Corona Beer. She drank water instead and people asked if she was pregnant for denying the alcohol. She said, "No" and then said that it was “just an overall detoxifying.”
Darby and her 60-year-old husband had just been told by the doctor that Darby was about 6 weeks along and her estimated due date was July 2. She was very excited but why didn't she want to tell her costars about the amazing news? She said in the show during an interview that she didn't want to tell her friends because she wanted to make sure that she was further along. She knew that it would be way too hard to tell them that she lost the baby if something happened. Darby had previously suffered a miscarriage and she didn't want to have to deal with that again. She wanted to make sure that she is further along so that she can ensure that the pregnancy is going to "stick."
This year has brought a lot of questions regarding her wanting to be pregnant. Most of her costars have known that she wanted to have another baby but they questioned her reasoning because her husband just went through trial for sexual assault charges. The charges were dropped but the other stars are concerned about her having a baby during this time. Darby said that the other ladies have not been supportive of her and Michael and so she is trying to play it cool.
Congratulations you guys on the pregnancy and we hope that everything goes well. We hope that you have a healthy and happy nine months!
