Congrats! After Their Rocky Relationship, Musiq Soulchild &Instagram Model Ex Welcome Baby
We’re sending a big congratulations to singer, Musiq Soulchild, and his gorgeous Instagram model ex-girlfriend, Ashley Wright. To some, it may seem a little too soon for her to be his ex -given that they just had a baby the other day- but according to Ashley, their relationship had some turbulence, we’ll get to that in a minute.
First let’s take a look at their precious baby girl, Satori Solaris. Here’s what the proud mommy posted on Instagram.

Musiq’s ex, Ashley, has become widely known on social media for her yoga fitness, nude photos, inspirational quotes, and pole fitness pics with her 4 year old daughter balanced upside down with her and such.
After becoming pregnant with Musiq’s baby though, there came a time when Ashley leaned on her many followers for inspiration instead. She explained the joy and pain that has transpired with herself and Musiq. See their rocky road below…
In April 2017, Ashley and Musiq started off in happy new couple bliss. They announced they were four months pregnant and seemed very excited about their lil’ bun in the oven.
The Heartbreaking Breakup While Pregnant
By May, Ashley posted a very emotional video on Instagram of her and her toddler daughter, moving back in with her parents. She alluded that Musiq had apparently broken up with her and sent her and her little girl on their merry way:
“I had met him, he woo’d me, we moved in together, we started a family (holds belly), and I would for the first time celebrate Mother’s Day with a companion by my side. I pictured holding hands, and belly rubs, me planning a cute meal of sorts (he isn’t the celebration type) and laughs at Shannon’s joyful, playful ways. … Yet here I am, at my parent’s house.
Around 1 AM I woke up tossing and turning. For hours I was terribly uncomfortable; no matter what I did. I ate some peanuts. I drank some Kagen water. I added more pillows. I changed positions over and over. I scrolled social media and then I realized I hadn’t taken moments to breathe. I sat up, closed my eyes and took deep breaths…slow your breathing Ash — In that meditation, I begin to acknowledge and accept a few things. I was triggered by Mothers Day. — You see long are the days in which, holidays and their meanings have impacted me. Yet this Mother’s Day, this year… I was really looking forward to it. For it was a year, I had met him, he woo’d me, we moved in together, we started a family (holds belly), and I would for the first time celebrate Mother’s Day with a companion by my side. — I pictured holding hands, and belly rubs, me planning a cute meal of sorts (he isn’t the celebration type) and laughs at Shannon’s joyful, playful ways.— Yet here I am, at my parent’s house, in a bed that gives me lower back pain, consistently shifting my mind as I courageously take on emotions and feelings that do not serve me. — I replayed how I had to pack up all of my belongings alone, and moments In which I cried on the stairs. Sometimes even in Shannons’s arms. Flashes of when I was exhausted beyond belief, barely eating, struggling to cater to Shannon…and at the airport having to maneuver SIX 50-70 lbs bags on a cart, while consistently demanding Shannon hold on to mommy as we made our way across the street. At the rental location… I cried in the car. Wiped my tears and then went to a boxing class. — Then I was reminded how when I arrived home, my mother spoke for hours in disbelief on how I was able to do all of that alone. She couldn’t stop saying, “Wow you are amazing! I don’t know how you moved all those bags pregnant and with Shannon.” I didn’t even look up at her, I responded, “I just had to figure it out. One thing for sure is if I never thought I was strong before, I know now I am. Not because it was a physical feat, but mentally. I couldn’t even cry. I didn’t have the space to. I just had to get it done.” — (Cont in comments)
Her Sadness & Non-Excitement About Their Pregnancy
By September, Ashley was brutally honest on Instagram, regarding her non-excitement about her and Musiq Soulchild’s the unborn baby. It seemed that her heartbreak never completely subsided since their breakup:
mswrightsway: Someone asked me if I was excited? Excited about the baby. My response… “I’m Not.” As I continued with giving honor and acknowledgement to Life as a blessing, I followed with, “This process and circumstance I’m in is less than exciting and that I have yet to shift to a celebratory, excited space.” However, as I currently focus on complete surrender, acceptance and gratitude for the lessons that are here now, that are being served to me with a main course of TRUTH, I am ever reminded of WHO I AM. So in progression and preparation for this ceremony that we call Labor, in which I shall bring forth the God Seed that chose me, I am sitting in my Truth until it stops hurting.
Observing the feelings that come and go, working through triggers that disconnect me from presence, I say aloud, FAITH!! I say aloud, LOVE! I say aloud I CHOOSE JOY! And it is here that I remember what it is to bare my soul as I call out to my ancestors, as I shed all that doesn’t serve me, as I KEEP SPACE for what does, as I look forward to continuing to be a badass Wombyn and Mother!! For what you see here is Power!! Power and perseverance even when I felt weak. HEAR ME ROAR!
Where They Are Now?
Not exactly sure where Musiq Soulchild and Ashley stand with their relationship, but it seems they will be co-parenting their baby. Ashley is known for sharing much of her personal life on social media, but ever since her breakup announcement in April, she hasn’t posted one photo of Musiq since. Musiq on the other hand, has never shared anything about Ashley online. The good thing is that Musiq was by Ashley’s side during the birth of their baby girl. Also, given how dedicated he is to his son with his ex/702 singer, Meelah Williams, Musiq has proven that no matter what, he’ll always be there for his children. From the looks of it, he plans on doing the same for his daughter, Satori. Wishing all of them the best.
