The Dancing on Ice judge welcomed a son with his wife Francesca on Thursday (26.03.20), whom they have decided to name Micah Grace Banjo.
Taking to Instagram to share a picture of himself and his spouse cradling their newest arrival, Ashley wrote:
‘On Thursday the 26th March at 6.45pm our son came into the world weighing a healthy 8lbs 15oz. His name is Micah Grace Banjo… Our son, our little ray of light in a dark and uncertain time. @francescabanjo and I love him with the deepest part of our hearts (sic)’.

‘Happy International Woman’s Day Rose. you are already at the age of 1 an intelligent, loving and strong minded little lady. Never change beautiful girl, the world is your oyster! #iwd2020 (sic)’.

He wrote on social media:
‘It’s a good job we like surprises! Baby number 2 is officially in the mum oven ladies and gents and I feel so blessed and excited. Our little family is growing (sic)’.
