‘The Masked Dancer’ Judge Ashley Tisdale Gives Birth To Daughter

“At first, I rebelled against it, and like clockwork, after I got engaged EVERYONE (and I mean everyone!) asked when I was getting married,” she wrote on her blog. “Then, once I was married, everyone was asking when I was having kids,” she said. “To be honest, it just felt invasive.”
“I wasn’t ready for that step yet and I wanted to be selfish and have Chris all to myself for a while. Honestly, I wouldn’t have had it any other way,” she added. The pair were married in 2014 after meeting through mutual friends in 2012.
“I think from the moment that him and I met, I just knew it,” she said in a 2013 interview with Ryan Seacrest. “I was like, ‘OK, this is the guy,’ And he knew the same thing. It doesn’t get any better. I just can’t explain it.”
Ashley Worked On Herself Before Becoming A Mom
“I’m not naive about how a baby changes everything as I have a niece and plenty of friends with kids. I’m glad I worked on myself before we decided to make this decision,” she wrote on her blog. “After six years of marriage, we built a strong foundation, and the timing just felt right. I gave it to God and the universe and honestly didn’t feel stressed about it and then it happened very quickly.”
Ashley first announced her baby news in September 2020. In October, she announced that they were expecting a girl in a sweet and simple gender reveal with a pink cake.
In February, Ashley posted a nude photo showing off her pregnancy body. “So much of the time we give our love to others. Let’s start loving ourselves and our bodies in every shape and form. Our bodies do a lot for us every day and we neglect to acknowledge that. Thank your body and say I love you” she captioned the post.
