Who would have thought that a couple who met for the first time at the altar would actually end up in a lasting relationship? Experts matched Ashley Petta and Anthony D’Amico on Season 5 of Married at First Sight, which aired in 2017. After that, they appeared in the spin-off series Married At First Sight: Happily Ever After.
The show documented their progress since the original series and something pretty special: Ashley’s pregnancy with their first child. In fact, all three couples from that season were expecting daughters and got to document their pregnancy. Now, it’s official: Ashley and Anthony are proud parents to a baby girl.
Anthony shared a photo of the trio on his Instagram page. Along with the photo, he announced, “Our baby girl is finally here!!! 3 weeks early and oh so perfect! Ashley and I are absolutely in love.”
The new dad continued, “So far I’ve kissed Mila about 7,000 times and counting. Love being a Dad it’s what I was meant to be. To say I’m in love with this little girl would be an understatement. There’s no words to describe. I can’t wait to watch her grow up and do all the fun Daddy, Daughter stuff! Our little family is one step closer to complete…” Was he hinting at the possibility of another child with that last part? It sure sounds like it.
Ashley discussed Mila’s arrival on her account as well. She wrote, “Our little peanut Mila Rose made her debut 3 weeks early on 1/12/19 at 3:34am weighing 4 pounds and 14 ounces! She is everything I dreamed of and more. We are so in love and can’t wait to show our baby girl the world!”
In an interview with People, Ashley revealed, “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.” Ashley also remarked, “Holding her for the first time was the most amazing, surreal moment of my life.”
