Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life. It has been the best journey with my favorite person in the world! Today, we are feeling so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate with our GROWING FAMILY! Happy anniversary, @mrjustinervin ❤️ Life is about to get even better. 😘
The gorgeous duo seemed absolutely thrilled about the news and showed Ashley’s adorable baby bump in the video as they giggled and shared a kiss. Fans and friends of the couple flooded the comments to congratulate them on the epic announcement. “And there is it … I’m over here reaching for the Kleenex again … tears of JOY and LOVE,” Ashley’s trainer Kira Stokes gushed. Celebrity makeup artist Morgane Martini added, “You two are gonna be amazing parents!” Beauty vlogger NikkieTutorials (real name: Nikkie De Jager) was absolutely shook and wrote, “WAIT OMG … YES YES YES YEEEESSSSS!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations beautiful!!!!”
Ashley admitted during an interview with Allure in June that she’s thought a lot about what kind of mom she wants to be. “The more you have conversations with people around you that are different than you, [the more] you’re going to learn and you’re going to grow,” she explained while noting that race is something she plans on talking openly about with her own kids. “I want to know as much as I can as a white woman who is going to be raising black children. We’re going to have to have that conversation of ‘Mommy’s white, Daddy’s black,’ and I want to be prepared.” The Sports Illustrated babe also stressed how important it is to “read books, have conversations and educate yourself.”
We can’t wait to meet Ashley and Justin’s bundle of joy!
