What a mood! Ashley Graham took to Instagram on Tuesday, January 7 to express some some self-love as she gets closer to giving birth. To top it off, the model munched on cheeseburgers while expressing her gratitude for her bod. We’re here for it!
“Come to mama 🍔🍔🍔 Anyone else feel like being pregnant gave you a whole new appreciation for your body?” she captioned the post before adding it’s helped her become inspired for her swimsuit line.
She continued, “It’s also given me insights as designer and I’m so excited to see that reflected in my new @swimsuitsforall collection! The real test when we were designing this line was that none of these are maternity suits! All I had to do was size up and they are still supportive and have an amazing fit 💪🏼 link in bio my new line out now!”
As of late, Ashley has been loving everything about her figure. The brunette beauty gained 50 pounds and she’s embracing the extra pounds.
“The best part is, I don’t care!” she captioned an Insta photo from herself doing yoga in December. “I have never felt better, and I am so thankful that my body and son have allowed me to be as mobile and flexible as I have been. Between working out, yoga, acupuncture and lymphatic massages — I finally feel like I figured out this whole pregnancy thing and how to feel my best.” Yes, girl!
It’s been quite the journey for the mom-to-be. Throughout her pregnancy, which she announced with husband Justin Ervin in August, she’s been sharing nude photos as a way to empower herself and others going through the same thing. Though Ash always appears confident, when she first posted that first nude photo flaunting her baby bump and stretch marks, she was very upset.
“I thought I was [going to] feel good … and I didn’t. I just felt terrible,” she divulged in November in her video series, Fearless. Fortunately, she held it together and reminded herself that there are many out there who can relate. Clearly, Ashely has come a long way!
