And their bundle of joy has now arrived, according to reports in The Mirror and MailOnline.
The reality TV favourite was pictured beaming as she pushed a pram earlier today, with Tom by her side.
It comes one week after Ashley posed in just a lace bralette as she showed off her large baby bump on what was supposed to be her due date.
Admitting that she was “impatiently waiting”, Ashley wrote at the time: “I’ve always known that the due date is more of a guesstimate and only about 2% of babies come on their actual date. In France, your due date isn’t until 41 weeks! But it feels weird to still be pregnant going past today, as I was told he was head down and ready 4 weeks ago, so was certain he’d be coming before now.Ashley posted this picture a week ago – on what was supposed to be her due date[/caption]
“But like I mentioned on stories, as excited as I am to meet him, I’m happy to wait for him to come in his own time. Impatiently waiting for the next chapter.”
The DJ also confessed that she’d struggled with the last few weeks of her pregnancy as she detailed the mental and physical impact it’d had on her.
She said: “I’ve been trying to cherish every last moment of pregnancy. Appreciating the kicks, being thankful for the way my body has grown. But equally, the last couple of weeks have been harder, mentally and physically.
“Physically: I’ve been constantly itchy, my pelvis is sore and swollen, and my belly piercing has started to tear because of the extreme stretching. Walking has kept me fit and active.The star admitted that she was struggling with the physical and mental aspects of pregnancy [/caption]
“Mentally: it’s been a weird time of year with the in-between stage of Christmas and New Year anyway, and I feel like I’ve started a new year still awaiting a new chapter.
“It’s also weird because you’re bombarded with messages asking if the baby is here, or telling you things you can do to hurry to process (all well intentioned messages), and you’re just out here waiting. Even the pregnancy apps stop updating you!”

The star had been single for six years before reconnecting with Tom in October 2019, who she’d first met 10 years earlier.
They have not confirmed their son’s birth, or revealed a baby name – with Ashley previously admitting that they’d clashed over what to call their first child.
She said at the time: “I like wild hippy names, the kind of names that A-list celebrities call their kids, and everyone’s like: ‘What?’ and Tommy’s like: ‘I don’t think so.'”
