Married at First Sight couple Ashley Petta and Anthony D’Amico officially welcomed their baby girl into the world. Much like fellow MAFS couple Jephte Pierre and Shawniece Jackson, this bundle of joy came early. With a new house and now a new baby girl, Ashley and Anthony will have their hands full. What’s the latest for the pair?
Married at First Sight: Ashley Petta and Anthony D’Amico’s Journey
Married at First Sight fans knew that Ashley Petta and her husband, Anthony D’Amico, were expecting a girl. As viewers saw on the recently concluded Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After, all three couples featured on the spinoff are having girls. Jephte and Shawniece were the first couple to deliver. And now, Ashley and Anthony can add themselves to the MAFS parent list. The only couple left is Bobby Dodd and Danielle Bergman
Not everyone was pleased with how she revealed the gender of their baby to him. He wanted to wait to find out. In a bold move, Ashley Petta revealed the gender of their baby prematurely while the couple enjoyed an anniversary dinner. Anthony D’Amico was crestfallen at first. Many fans didn’t like the way that Ashley disrespected his wishes. That said, she and Anthony finished the Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After season strong and really worked on their communication. They’re going to need it with a new baby to take care of.
MAFS Baby: Mila Rose D’Amico
Ashley Petta gave birth to daughter Mila Rose D’Amico on January 12. This is the first child for the Married at First Sight Season 5 couple. Baby D’Amico arrived in the early morning hours. The new arrival weighed in just shy of five pounds. The pair are ecstatic to welcome the newest addition to their family. As fans saw on Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After, the pair decided to buy a house. She wanted more space and something they could start their lives in as a family once the baby came. That time is now.
Anthony D’Amico had a hard time on MAFS: HEA when he and Ashley took classes on how to hold and care for a newborn. He certainly sharpened those skills since then. Speaking of her husband with their new baby, Ashley Petta said: “Watching Anthony take care of her makes me love him even more. He’s already an amazing daddy. We can’t wait to show this sweet little baby girl the world.”
The Road Ahead for Ashley and Anthony
Ashley and Anthony have definitely come a long way on their Married at First Sight journey. Ashley Petta would take charge of most situations and Anthony would get lost in the shuffle. During their seasons on the show, MAFS experts like Dr. Pepper Schwartz encouraged Anthony D’Amico to speak up and find his voice in the relationship.
Toward the end of their HEA season, Ashley and Anthony D’Amico laughed together and really seemed to open up more and enjoy being around each other. Each of the couples wrote handwritten letters to their babies and read them aloud. For Ashley and Anthony, the next step is to put those words into practice. They’re officially parents now.
