Congrats! Ashley Graham and her husband, Justin Ervin, welcomed their first child, a son, on January 18, Life & Style can confirm. The couple first announced that they were pregnant on August 14 — the same day as their anniversary — and the model has been extremely open and candid about her journey every since. The newly minted parents seem over-the-moon excited to start a new chapter with their sweet baby boy.
“At 6:00 p.m. on Saturday our lives changed for the better,” the brunette beauty gushed in a written statement on her Instagram Story on January 20. “Thank you for all your love and support during this incredible time.”
In addition to a new bundle of joy, Life & Style exclusively learned that the 32-year-old is also receiving a very special push present from Justin, 31.
“Ashley’s husband was the one that came to me and was like ‘Hey, I want to design something beautiful for Ashley for a push present,’” George Khalife, a.k.a., dished exclusively. “So, I really got to know him … I consider him a close friend now.” We think Ashley definitely deserves a little bling!
George has also worked extensively with the “Pretty Big Deal” podcast host and gushed over her amazing personality. “She’s a great friend,” he added. “Ashley’s the sweetest, genuine person in the world. She’s so reasonable and so easy going. Yeah, I really, really love her. She’s a great client … She’s going to be such a good mom. She’s just such a pure-hearted, genuine woman.”
The brunette beauty’s pregnancy journey took some getting used to, which is totally understandable. “My experience has been that there’s ,” Ashley explained during her podcast to Emily Ratajkowski on the November 19 episode. “And, I’ve always had full control over my body. You know, as a model, we have had people try to create agency over who we are and we have always taken the reins back. You and I, specifically. But now, there’s this creature inside of me who is like, ‘Nuh-uh. I get first dibs.’”
Now that pregnancy is over, a whole new experience begins. Congrats, Ashley and Justin!
