The Truth About Jay Smith And Ashley Martson's Relationship After 90 Day Fiance

While 90 Day Fiancé has featured quite a few unforgettable couples over the years, one of the most memorable pairs from the show is Jay Smith and Ashley Martson. From their whirlwind courtship to their messy breakup, the couple have had more than their fair share of ups and downs.

Now, it looks like they're back together again in spite of the fact that Ashley had seemed to wash her hands of Jay just a few months ago. "I don't really care if he's deported," she told Us Weekly last August. "I just want him to leave me alone."

It seems like in spite of the harsh comments — not to mention both Ashley and Jay dated other people while they were apart — both still harbor deep feelings for each other. "They are back together and they are trying to make it work out," a source told E! News. "[Ashley] wasn't happy without [Jay]. She is trying to make it work, and he is manning up about his behavior more."

Ashley Martson and Jay Smith are still married

Ashley filed for divorce from Jay twice last year, but it seems like they never finalized the split and are planning to stay married as they rekindle their tumultuous romance. They're also practicing social distancing together in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. "They rekindled things over the last week or so and they are planning on staying together through the quarantine," said the anonymous source.

Ashley has gone public with the relationship on Instagram, where she's going by Ashley Smith. Both she and her husband have posted recent videos on their Instagram Stories of them hanging out together. When asked by a fan if they had decided to fight for their marriage, Jay responded (via E! News) ,"We been fighting from day uno."

Ashley Martson and Jay Smith have come a long way since 90 Day Fiance

Jay and Ashley aren't just thriving in their relationship but in their careers as well. While Jay revealed in a now-deleted YouTube video that the COVID-19 pandemic put a temporary halt to his work as a tattoo artist, the couple is still able to live comfortably as Ashley is a social media influencer who is doing pretty well for herself (per CheatSheet).

In May, she posted a picture of two luxury cars on Instagram, one belonging to her and one to a friend. "I'm sure most will comment something dumb on this and will probably think I'm rubbing our cars in your face but there is so much more behind this post," wrote Ashley in the caption. Ashley revealed that, just a few years ago, she "didn't have any money" and was a struggling single mom. "I struggled so badly," she said. "I lived in a tiny apartment where my rent was only 500 a month. My rent was almost always late, bills were stacking up... I cried daily."

Now, though, Ashley is thriving and things have changed a lot for her family. She encouraged other single parents to not give up. "Single moms and dads this is a message for you," she wrote. "You may feel like giving up, we've been there. You may feel like you won't ever be able to 'get it together' You may feel like a failure as a parent for not being able to do things other parents can for their kids. You CAN and you WILL. Fight the fight, I promise better days are ahead." 

Jay Smith and Ashley Martson want kids together... one day

Since reuniting, Ashley and Jay seem to be going strong. So strong, in fact, that when Ashley announced in June that she had major news, fans began to suspect that the couple are trying to expand their family. Ashley ended up addressing the pregnancy rumors on her Instagram Story and, while she's not pregnant, she hinted that she and Jay do want to add to their family in the future. "Y'all, I'm not pregnant, LOL," she wrote (via In Touch Weekly). "I will share very, very soon the news, but, sorry, a baby is on the back burner. Career first."

That doesn't mean they don't want kids one day, though. "As far as kids, we're working on that," Jay said in a now-deleted YouTube video in March (via In Touch Weekly). 

Ashley provided a timeline for when they might want kids. "We're working on more things, more important [things] right now," she said. Jay suggested having a baby in 2025, to which Ashley responded, "Maybe then."
