Who Is Michael Darby? New Details About RHOP Ashley Darby's Husband And Baby Daddy

The Real House Wives of Potomac star Ashley Darby is pregnant with her first child, with her husband, Michael Darby, 59.

The Bravo reality star announced it on Instagram on February 5 in a video with captions reading, "Very excited to share this special news with you my loves. Michael and I are thrilled to welcome a bundle of joy into our lives. The most incredible gift imaginable! Love and light to you."

This news comes after some marital struggles for the couple. The couple briefly separated between season two and three of the series.

The couple spent last season fighting over whether they will have a kid. When they finally did decide to expand their family, the pregnancy sadly resulted in a miscarriage.

Although we see him on the show, many people are wondering who Michael is as a person and what his deal is.
