Julia Edwards Ainsley was born with the maiden name Julia Lynn Edwards in Raleigh, North Carolina. She is the daughter of Dr. George Sadler Edwards, Jr. She has a sister, Susan Edwards Lewis, and a brother, George Sadler Edwards III.[17]

She is married to Newman Carraway Ainsley. The couple wed on October 29, 2016, at Christ Church Georgetown [5]

On January 5, 2020, Ainsley gave birth to her first child, Mary Wells Knight Ainsley.

She was named after her paternal, great-great-grandmother, one of the first women to win the Pulitzer Prize for a Biography.[27]

In an interview with NBCNews.com, Ainsley told what was the hardest moment during pregnancy spent at work:

I've been sick through my whole pregnancy.

I was told I would start feeling better after the first trimester, but I'm more than six months in and (sorry if this is an overshare), I've thrown up twice in the past 24 hours.

As you may have seen, one moment of nausea was particularly public when I got sick outside of the Justice Department when I was live on camera.

[27]

The hardest moment by far though was having to say “no” to reporting trips to Central America. As an immigration reporter, I was offered the chance to travel to three Central American countries with the Department of Homeland Security. But the threats of Zika, extreme heat and contaminated water were too high for my comfort. A male colleague of mine took a similar trip and came back with two strains of E. Coli, so I was happy I had not jeopardized my health or my baby's health by going. But as soon as I'm back from maternity leave, I want to head south! [27]
