'Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After' to co-star Ashley Petta and Anthony D'Amico, premiere in October

Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After is coming to Lifetime next month, and Ashley Petta and husband Anthony D'Amico from Season 5 of Married at First Sight have been announced as one of the three couples starring on the series.
The new eight-episode series will follow the lives of three happily-married couples from past seasons of the franchise. Happily Ever After will chronicle the daily milestones of each pair's life together -- the good, the bad and the ugly.
Like Shawniece and Jephte, Ashley and Anthony are currently expecting their first child together.
Anthony and Ashley, both residents of the Chicago area, wed in August 2016 for Season 5 of Married at First Sight, which aired on Lifetime in 2017.
Ashley and Anthony just announced late last month they have a baby on the way.
As fans may recall, Ashley couldn't wait to become a mother on her season and was trying to persuade Anthony to start a family sooner rather than later.
"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!"
And Anthony wrote on social media in August, "I'm gonna be a Daddy! @ashleypetta and I are so excited to announce that we're pregnant! 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!"

All three of Married at First Sight's fifth-season couples opted to remain together on "Decision Day," which followed the extreme eight-week marriage experiment.
However, Anthony and Ashley are the only one of the three that still remain married today.
Married at First Sight: Happily Ever After is being produced by Kinetic Content and executive produced by Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Alex Cross, Ally Simpson, Gena McCarthy and Shura Davison.
