Ashley Darby and hubby, Michael Darby have definitely had their share of drama play out over the last few seasons of ‘The Real Housewives of Potomac‘ as it pertains to their marriage, financial and family issues. Not to mention the alleged gay rumors surrounding Michael.

Well it looks like the couple has secured their story line for the next season of RHOP as they prepare to welcome their first child together. The news comes Tuesday, just months after Michael questioned Ashley’s ability to mother a child on the last season of the show.

The Daily Dish has confirmed. “I’ve always wondered what this would feel like – carrying a being inside of my body – but actually being pregnant is more incredible than I could have imagined,” Ashley said in a statement to The Daily Dish. “Through all of our past heartbreak, this is the most incredible gift we could ever receive.”

Ashley gave The Daily Dish an exclusive first look at her baby bump, which you can check out in the above video. The clip features Ashley and Michael embracing, looking lovingly into each other’s eyes, and kissing before revealing her beautiful baby bump. We also learn that Ashley and Michael’s baby is due in July 2019.

The RHOP mom-to-be told PEOPLE that she and Michael are keeping the gender of their baby a surprise for now. “We have the results in Michael’s desk drawer at work, but we might do a sex reveal, that’s still a toss up in the air,” she said. “But for now, it’s just really hypothesizing if it’s going to be a boy or a girl based on the heartbeat, the shape of the belly, the condition of my skin — all those things that are supposed to be predictors of the baby’s sex.”

Although Ashley has long referred to her and Michael’s future child as “Mickshley,” a combination of both of their first names, she told PEOPLE that they’re currently “going back and forth with names.” “With an Australian man who tends to lean more towards the English side with his name choices, it’s very interesting,” she joked about Michael. “He wants it to be a Phillip or an Elizabeth or something very regal. It needs a little bit of culture in there!”

This will be Ashley’s first child. Michael has two adult children (ages 27 and 24) from his first marriage.
