The 35-year-old and her husband, Neal Dodson, welcomed son Gus Williams Dodson in a home birth on Sunday, Oct. 5.
“He’s gorgeous and healthy. So far he’s soothable and calm. Knock on wood!” Ashley gushed of her newborn, who weighed in at 8 lbs., 8 oz.

The actress, who is also a certified doula, was surrounded by a team of midwives, a doula and a chiropractor for the birth, adding that Gus arrived to the tune of an Alexi Murdoch song.
"We felt so safe and so lucky to have had such incredible support,” Ashley shared.
So how did the duo come up with their baby boy's moniker? “His name is Gus. For no other reason than: Who doesn’t love a guy named Gus?” she told People magazine.
Congrats to the new parents!
