Ashley Olsen has embraced the journey into parenthood. The former Full House star, along with her husband Louis Eisner, welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Otto, earlier this year, according to several sources.
This joyful baby announcement follows closely on the heels of their wedding, which took place in a private ceremony in Los Angeles less than a year ago. The intimate event occurred in late December and was attended by a select circle of close friends and family. Among the attendees were Ashley’s twin, Mary-Kate Olsen, and their younger sister Elizabeth Olsen, as reported by People magazine.
Despite her relationship with Louis dating back to at least 2017, Ashley, now 37 years old, has maintained a discreet approach to discussing their romance. It wasn’t until 2021 that the couple made their first appearance on the red carpet together, marking one of the few times they’ve been seen publicly as a couple.
This privacy-oriented stance has roots in their upbringing. In a 2021 interview with i-D magazine, Mary-Kate shared, “We were raised to be discreet people.” Ashley further elaborated that this discreet mindset has influenced their fashion choices as well. She explained, “I think that potentially that’s just our aesthetic, our design preference. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t also appreciate something truly ornate or maximal.”
Since transitioning from acting to the fashion industry over a decade ago, both Ashley and Mary-Kate have deliberately maintained a lower profile. They’ve concentrated on their fashion labels, The Row and Elizabeth and James, which they oversee together as business partners.
Reflecting on their partnership, Ashley stated, “We like working together and we like having that dialogue. Our instincts are kind of the same. But I think what’s great is that we have each other to lean on. And managing design is one thing and then also running the business side is another and I think you have a lot of decisions to make.”
She added, “I mean, when you put those two things together, there’s a lot of decisions to make on a daily basis, so I think we feel fortunate that we can have that dialogue and divide and conquer a bit.”
