Just breathtaking. Model Ashley Graham shared a brand new nude photo from a pregnancy shoot with celebrity photographer Cass Blackbird — and the powerful pic is absolutely stunning. The 32-year-old bombshell posted the photo to her Instagram feed on December 27.

“Open to surrender,” she captioned the vulnerable black and white image of herself on her knees. “Caught by angel mama @cassblackbird.” The legendary photographer also shared the pic on her own Instagram feed. “True force of nature,” she wrote, adding the hashtag “#ilovehotmoms.”

Naturally, tons of Ash’s celeb friends flocked to the comments section to share their thoughts on the incredible photo. Close pal Emily Ratajkowski left four heart-eyed emojis on the post, while legendary model Christy Turlington gushed, “Warrior Woman.”

Plus, Justin Ervin‘s wife also shared a snap of her baby bump on her Instagram Stories the same day, showing that their unborn son is “sitting low.” That means it is almost time for his arrival! So exciting.


It’s great to see the brunette beauty opening up like this again. Back in August, she had a rough time dealing with her emotions surrounding a photo she posted of her pregnancy stretch marks. “I had just announced that I was pregnant and I thought I was [going to] feel good … and I didn’t. I just felt terrible,” Ashley revealed during a November 15 episode of her online video series .

“That morning actually, I really thought to myself, ‘Get it together, Ashley. There are other women out there who are going through the same thing as you,’” she continued. “‘Why don’t you have a dialogue with them? This is a new body that I’m walking into. Why don’t I just put myself out there with this new body?’”

Despite the fact that it took some time to get there, it seems as though the Sports Illustrated alum has finally come to love the pregnancy changes. “Ashley’s showed her fans and the world that being pregnant can be glorious,” an insider told Life & Style exclusively back in September. “She’s not only calm and actually glowing, but she feels sexy. She’s doing yoga in gorgeous clothes [and] she’s feeling herself like never before.”
