After a turbulent ride with Jared Haibon over the years to getting engaged, married, and carrying a child, Ashley Iaconetti’s love life has taken a turn for the better- and it is wonderful to be part of their journey.

Now, Ashley and Jared are anxiously anticipating the arrival of their first child, due February 10. In a recent Instagram story, Ashley asks fans if they think that the baby will be in the 8 or 9-pound range, stating she knows the baby will be at least 8 pounds — because moms always know, right?

Ashley and Jared’s love story is real and thankfully after some serious ups and downs, they have settled down and started growing their family.

The couple first announced Ashley’s exciting news back in July 2021, with a funny Instagram post. Later, Jared revealed they were having a baby boy.

“Baby Haibon is due Feb 10th! We’re are very excited for that day to come! It’s so cool to think I’m creating a human that’s half me and half Jared! I won’t lie though, pregnancy has not been a delight for me,” Ashley wrote.

She continued, “The nausea has been relentless and I throw up multiple times most days. I knew the first trimester wasn’t easy for most, but I didn’t imagine my life to come to a standstill feeling like I have an extreme hangover for 5 weeks and counting. Thank you all for the love and congratulations today!! Hearing so many stories from followers and friends about their experiences has made me feel better about all the changes my body is going through and a lot less alone!”

Ashley has been posting about her pregnancy consistently since the announcement. As an exciting mom-to-be, she shares her experiences with moms and fans through her social media platform. Her posts are not always glamourous either.

Ashley opens up authentically about the reality of being pregnant, which is a breath of fresh air. It is so often that we hear how wonderful it is to be a mom, but it is important to also read about what a mom goes through in order to have a family, and Ashley has proven herself to be the perfect spokesperson for that.

It is no secret that pregnancy is not always glamourous, but at least Ashley has a sense of humor about the process.
