Ashley stood side-profile as she took the pair’s picture, wearing a plunging cream top and her hair and make-up perfectly done.
Holly, dressed in a purple top and pink cardigan, flashed a beaming smile as she leant her head towards her mum’s shoulder.
Teen Mom Ashley added the simple caption: “Name a better duo ❤️.”
She limited comments on the post, yet her followers were quick to hit the like button.
The TV personality has been candid in discussing her marital struggles with Bar – with the mom even removing her wedding ring last year.
The pair tied the knot prior to appearing on Teen Mom Family Reunion, where Ashley talked about their strained relationship.
‘IT NEEDS TLC’
She detailed their troubles in a confessional saying: “Right now, my relationship with Bar is just at a space where it needs some TLC and if it doesn’t get that, it could fall apart.”

She voiced her concerns to her co-star Leah Messer admitting that she fears of divorcing in the near future.
“I don’t want to be like Kim Kardashian and be like ‘I feel like a loser’, like, I got married and divorced in 72 f**king hours.
“Not really, I’ve been married a month, but I don’t want to be married and divorced in the same year.”
She continued in an interview: “I really want Bar and I to sit down with Coach B because I just want us to work on our communication.
“I don’t want to jump to divorce and make it final when I feel like there’s still hope.”
CHATTING WITH THE DOC
The duo got their chance to chat with Dr. Bryant later in the episode.
Bar joked: “I feel like this is the hot seat.”
Immediately, Dr. Bryant asked the duo: “What is our relationship status.”
Ashley answered: “We don’t know,” while Bar said, “We’re married but…” and trailed off.
The Teen Mom star went on: “I feel like we’re just in a awkward state. Like, obviously we’re married, but to me it doesn’t feel like what I thought a marriage would feel like.”
She added: “I don’t know if I was expecting too much but I feel like before we got married it seemed like everything was fine and then as soon as we signed the papers and got married I just feel like it was more serious.”
Asked what led to their rift, Ashley said: “I don’t need to hear anymore good jobs. I want to be able to say, look what I’m doing but also my husband is doing X, Y, and Z.”
Bar confessed: “I need to achieve more for myself. Everything that I have started to do I’m excited about, I’m passionate about, I always see the bigger picture to it but I always find a reason to distract myself from it.”
Earlier this month, Ashley gave hope the pair were back on track as she shared photos and videos from the Mario Kart-themed surprise party that she threw for her husband at their home.
In one snap posted to her Instagram Stories, she showed off the new Oculus she gifted the birthday boy.
The clip was originally shared by Bar on his page as he gushed over the virtual reality game joking that he’s “off the mat for the next year.”
The celebrations continued as the couple posed for a silly pic with their 3 year old daughter donning fake mustaches and paper Mario and Luigi hats from the video game.
She captioned the sweet post: “Party of three is still a party. Happy Birthday @barikismith”
The reality star then showcased more of her decorations from the bash including her attempt at making garland with a bunch of red balloons and a Mario Kart-themed scene setter placed on the sliding glass doors.
The mom of one laughed at her display in the caption, writing: “Clearly I can’t do a balloon garland but I wanted to do something special for Bar. Holly and I decided to throw him a Mario party.”
Bar clearly appreciated the gesture as she captured a snap of the 25-year-old sitting on the floor in front of the decorations, admiring his expensive gift.
