Ashley Martson is not one to step away from a publicity opportunity. Since being introduced on 90 Day Fiance, Ashley gets a lot of exposure on social media. So, unsurprisingly, Ashley was happy to speak about her relationship with husband Jay Smith.
This relationship has gone through a lot. Ashley’s health problems have challenged her new marriage to the Jamaican native. Production for 90 Day Fiance supposedly pressured Jay and Ashley to pretend that they were separating. After breaking her NDA, Ashley revealed that she and Jay never split. They did hit a rough patch when Ashley caught Jay interacting with another woman on Tinder. But now not only are they still together, they are going strong.
Ashley spoke to In Touch Weekly and revealed that Jay has been stepping up as a husband and caregiver. Here’s what she had to say. “Jay completely stepped up since the surgery. [He’s been] taking the kids to school, cooking, cleaning he makes sure I’m comfortable and is always eager to get whatever I need.”
Ashley shared her lupus diagnosis when Season 6 first aired. Her health continued to decline in real time and she was in and out of the hospital. At Ashley’s most critical state in January, she was diagnosed with kidney failure. Since then, she received treatment and underwent surgery.
Jay was with her every step of the way. Ashley described his emotional support, “he has been a saint when it comes to my health. It isn’t easy for him to see me in pain but he just talks me through [it] [and] stays strong for the both of us.”
Presumably, Ashley has to refrain from intimacy post-surgery. She added, “I think he is definitely ready for the two months to be up as intimacy is important in a marriage.”
Despite that inconvenience, the prognosis is good and Ashley is optimistic about the future. She said, “my health is improving each day and I’m finally able to start living normally again.”
