She captioned it, “The definition of a winter wonderland I didn’t know I missed snow so much! Thank you for showing me the beauty of Minnesota! ♥️ @lukegulbranson.”
The post garnered a lot of comments from Bravocelebs and fans who were so excited that the pair were together.
Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Cynthia Bailey wrote in the comments, “Y’all are so dang cute!” Some of Ashley’s Real Housewives of Potomac co-stars commented on the post, too. Robyn Dixon said, “Ok, So is this your boyfriend?” While Gizelle Bryant wrote under the photo, “Super cute!”
Her followers were super happy for her and termed Luke an upgrade compared to her ex, Michael Darby. “Okay he brought her to Minnesota! That’s Luke’s first base!”Another added, “Definitely the boyfriend she don liked all of his posts i’m happy that she’s happy tho!”
Ashley filed for divorce from Michael Darby in April 2022, after almost 8 years of marriage. The former couple share two kids, Dean, 3, and Dylan,1. When she announced her separation, Ashley said that she and Michael were just at different stages in their lives.
“We both want the other to achieve true happiness and fulfillment and feel that we cannot do this together.”
As per Virginia Law where she filed the papers, Ashley and Michael have to stay separated for one full year before a judge can sign off on a divorce.
According to The Jasmine Brand, Darby thought her separation from Michael would be easy, but she admitted sometimes it’s really hard.
“There’s some moments of missing our relationship, and when I see him being a really good dad, it’s like, ‘Oh man, could I? Should I?’ because he is still a great dad and a hands-on parent, and that’s what I find so attractive about him.”
Ashley said this in October before BravoCon where she exchanged numbers with the Summer House star. “Luke is really cute! We’ve exchanged numbers, so I’m definitely down to see what this is all about. He’s someone I definitely see myself having fun with.”
