"We're pregnant! I am so excited... We have always dreamed of having a child and we are so happy to finally be making our dreams come true together," Ashley captioned an Instagram photo of the couple holding a sonogram photo of their unborn child at the time.
"We are over the moon and can not wait to welcome our child into the world. We cant wait for this next journey in our lives to begin!"
"Girls seem to be the first born on both [sides] of our families so we can't say we were surprised... All we were really hoping for was a healthy baby though. I don't think either of us really had a preference on the sex of the baby," Anthony told People at the time.
"As the dad, my first thought was, 'Oh man, I'm in trouble!' I know she will have me wrapped around her little finger. Ashley can't wait to do all the girl things that moms do with their daughters and I can't wait to watch them bond."
