"Michael just left the hospital to go be with Dean, and give him some loving," she shared. "And it’s crazy how much I miss my son right now, even though I’m so happy and so blissful this guy, I just want us all to be together as a family -- and I know it’ll happen soon. I just miss him so much."

"Thank you again! I love you all, I cherish you so much, and this journey of motherhood just really keeps getting better," Darby concluded. "Much love, babes."

Ahead of giving birth, she shared that she was "39 weeks coming in hot," while showing off her baby bump.

Darby announced that she was expecting her second child in September.

"Dean has an announcement to make," read white text on a black background, before a photo of Dean wearing a "I'm gonna be a big brother" shirt appeared.

"There’s no hiding this big belly anymore! We are elated to share our news with you! To say we are thankful is an absolute understatement ♥️ #RHOP," she captioned the video. 

Prior to sharing their exciting news, Darby had told ET that she and Michael were working on expanding their family. 

"Everything that we do now affects the baby, so I make sure that we have real discussions that address things right then," she said of how her approach to marriage has evolved since becoming a mom.
