From 'Married at First Sight' to baby no 1, Ashley Petta and Anthony D'Amico's family has started to grow. The couple who met for the first time in the series' fifth season announced that they are expecting their first child together.
"I'm gonna be a Daddy! [Ashley Petta] and I are so excited to announce that we're pregnant!" D'Amico announced on Instagram. "Ashley and I have always wanted to be parents and can't wait for our little one to arrive. Looking forward to the next chapter of our lives!"
"We are so excited to finally be able to share this exciting news with everyone," the couple told People. "We have both always dreamed of having a child and we are so happy to finally be making our dreams come true together."
"We are over the moon and cannot wait to welcome our child into the world in the new year," the couple continued. "We can't wait for this next journey in our lives to begin."
Apart from D'Amico, Ashley also took to Instagram to share the exciting news with her followers. "We're pregnant! I am so excited to finally share this exciting news with everyone," she wrote alongside a photo of the couple and their sonogram picture.
It was just a couple of weeks ago that the duo celebrated their second anniversary together, "Happy 2 year anniversary @_anthonydamico Marrying a stranger might have been the craziest but best decision I ever made. Love you," Ashley captioned a photo with D'Amico.
D'Amico who is a sales and marketing professional was raised in Detroit in a traditional Italian family. He fell for Ashley when he moved to Chicago, who was a restaurant manager. Her last relationship ended after her ex-boyfriend was allegedly not ready to commit or start a family with her. Though the couple was seen getting into an argument initially about having a family on the show, Ashley and D'Amico finally reached a solution and agreed to start trying for a baby a year into their marriage on the reality TV.
According to People, Ashley previously wrote in a blog saying, "I’m very confident that I will be a great mother," and D'Amico added to that saying, “I completely agree on starting to try in a year!”
