Louis spends every day with Freddie, and his relationship with Briana is fine.
"Every single day [Louis sees Freddie]. He's a really good dad and is in constant communication with Briana," Ashley said, also adding that the new parents are getting along fine, despite rumors of a fierce custody battle.
"That's not the case and there's nothing negative between them — they're co-parenting and doing a great job at it. She's not [trying to get obscene amounts of child support from Louis]. People believe these things which is why we all get so much hate. She's asking for a reasonable amount and is living a good life."
Ashley thinks that the Tomlinson's have a bad impression of Briana's family.
"I think they read everything on the internet that's written about us and think it's true. They definitely have the wrong interpretation of me. In a perfect world, I would [like to bring both families together]. Maybe I'll be the icebreaker one day? Miracles happen and Freddie is a perfect example of that," she said.
Ashley had an awkward run-in with Danielle and Louis' mom, Johannah Deakin.
"I saw them in a hotel when I was working [as a makeup artist]. They were staying there and Louis' mum shouted, 'What are you doing here?' It was awkward. [Danielle said] nothing. We had eye contact. I'm pretty sure she knows who I am. I definitely know who she is," Briana's cousin said about Danielle.
It's unclear whether Briana wants to reunite with Louis, but her cousin is urging her to date other guys.
"Who knows [if Briana wants to get back together with Louis]? They have their own relationship that I could never explain to you. She's my family and I love her dearly and I only want the best for her, whatever that may be," she said.
"I've told her [to date a new man]. I need to get Briana on a blind date with one of my single friends."
Briana and Louis tried to get back together, but their relationship ultimately fizzled out.
Ashley says that they considered dating again, but ultimately decided against it, despite the fact that Briana's family hoped they would reunite.
"I thought the perfect situation would be that they got back together. They both thought about it and tried but that's not the way it ended up. They were trying [to get back together] and Briana visited the U.K., but it didn't work. Who wouldn't want anybody to be a happy family?"
Briana and her family never signed any confidentiality agreements.
"[Louis] told us to never respond and just live your life and never let it get in the way of anything. We've never signed a thing. I was with Briana during her meetings [with One Direction's management] and there were no contracts. We were all given classes on how to help us deal with social media and handle everything that was happening," Ashley revealed.
"I've known Briana all my life and she's never wanted fame. She doesn't even like taking photos. You can notice in all of the photos she's always looking down — she keeps to herself. She just wants people to see she's not this hateful and negative person that she's being portrayed as," Ashley said.
