The TV personality shared a photo with her man while enjoying a boat day out on the water, as the couple cuddled close in the sun.
The mom of one looked gorgeous in a form-fitting pink paisley dress with bell sleeves as she sat in Bariki’s lap, captioning her shot: “He know his wife a winner 😙.”

Ashley and Bariki have had a tumultuous relationship, and during their early years on MTV’s Young & Pregnant, she accused him of domestic abuse.
The two have been off and on consistently, but seem to be moving forward seriously at this stage of their relationship.
The couple share one daughter, Holly, who is now three years old after making her debut on the network.

The young father shared a photo of a baby scan, but revealed his joke in the bottom right corner, writing: “Just practicing IDK who’s baby this is.”
The Teen Mom star’s followers were not pleased, however, and they rushed to the comments to slam him for the “childish” and “disrespectful” behavior.
“I wish grown a** people would stop doing this childish a** prank. Not something to joke about,” one ranted.

Another roasted: “One in four women have trouble getting pregnant, this isn’t something you joke about, it’s f***ed up. And you want to be a role model for teen mothers. Disgraceful.”
Ashley recently spoke out about her decision to leave Young & Pregnant, as she revealed that she “no longer felt a connection” with her castmates.
During an Instagram Q&A, the young mom explained: “I always said that I felt a special connection with Young & Pregnant because that’s where I started and where I wanted to finish.

“So when the opportunity presented itself this time around, I took it,” she elaborated.
Fans then took to Reddit to speculate that her decision was based on the financial benefits, one trolling: “It’s okay to admit you moved for the money.”
