"Raise your hand if you didn’t know you’d be changing your own diapers too," she wrote. "After all these years in fashion I never could’ve guessed that disposable underwear would be my favorite piece of clothing but here we are!

"No one talks about the recovery and healing (yes even the messy parts) new moms go through. I wanted to show you guys that it’s not all rainbows and butterflies! It’s been tough, but my friend Chelsea @cmrh and ceo at @fridamom is making waves and starting honest conversations. It’s unbelievable the obstacles we still face talking about what women really go through. All their stuff she sent me has been a life saver [sic]."

The 32-year-old revealed on Instagram that she had welcomed Isaac on the 18th January.

"At 6:00PM on 01/18/2020, we welcomed 7lbs 5oz of love into our world. Meeting our son has made our hearts incredibly full and we can’t wait to introduce him to you on @prettybigdealpod tomorrow..." she wrote.

"I remember holding Isaac for the first time and telling Justin, 'Now we’re family forever' I have so many reasons to be grateful; all of the love and support from this amazing community, an incredible husband, and a beautiful baby who has opened my eyes to just how amazing this world really is," Ashley added in a follow-up post of her breastfeeding, with her husband by her side.
