When it comes to creative and exciting gender reveals, reality television star Ashley Darby has just set the bar high – and we mean really high. The mom-to-be, who is best known as a member of the Real Housewives of Potomac and a Bravolebirty, had a unique way of revealing her baby’s gender. She and her husband Michael Darby are expecting their first child together.
This past week Darby shared a video on her Instagram account but it wasn’t a typical one with blue or pink paint and sprinkles revealing their child’s sex. Instead, the reality television star proved that the sky is no limit when it comes to finding different ways to tell the world if you are having a baby boy or a baby girl.
According to Bravo, the gender reveal happened during one of her husband’s skydiving lessons. While he soared in the air, Michael opened up a package that revealed blue dust, indicating that they will be having a baby boy.
"Here it is my darlings!" Ashley wrote in the announcement on Instagram. "Mickey and I are so happy to share this incredible news with you, as we prepare for this amazing gift to come into our lives! We are BEYOND WORDS excited!"

Just last week Ashley Darby teased on social media that her gender reveal was in the works and that it would be like nothing that fans have seen before. And apparently, she was right. After confirming that she was pregnant back in February, Darby said that she and her husband were debating back and forth on good names for their future bundle of joy. While they are still working out their top five choices, Darby did say that their tastes are quite different.
“With an Australian man who tends to lean more towards the English side with his name choices, it’s very interesting,” Ashley said of Michael. “He wants it to be a Phillip or an Elizabeth or something very regal. It needs a little bit of culture in there!”
A new baby on the way is not the only thing that Ashley and Michael Darby are celebrating these days. The couple also celebrated their 5thwedding anniversary earlier this month. Darby marked the occasion by writing a touching tribute to her husband on Instagram. Calling him a great husband and a provider, she said, “These five years have been such a treat alongside you, Mickey. I can't even explain to anyone how much I love and cherish this man.”
