We stan a confident queen! Ashley Graham took to Instagram on Monday, October 7, to show off her baby bump in a nude video, and she looks amazing! The 31-year-old freely put her stretch marks on display, proving there is no such thing as beauty standards.
“Getting bigger and bigger and trying to embrace my new body everyday. It’s a journey and I’m so thankful to have such a supportive community,” she captioned one of the clips. Yes, girl! Ashley has been sharing her pregnancy journey with fans — from her workouts to her gorgeous baby bump pics.
Most recently, the brunette beauty beat Olympian Lindsey Vonn during a workout competition. “Yes, it’s true!” the 34-year-old skier admitted on Instagram on October 2. “I got beat by an amazingly fit, very pregnant and incredibly beautiful supermodel in the gym. You’re a stud, [Ashley]!! Must be your Midwest roots.”
Ash announced she is expecting baby No. 1 with her husband, Justin Ervin, on August 14, which also marked the couple’s wedding anniversary. To commemorate the special date, both the model and her hubby, 30, took to Instagram to share the exciting news. “Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life,” she began her post in which she flaunted her baby bump for the first time. “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, [Justin Ervin]. Life is about to get even better.” Justin also shared some kind words about his wife, referring to her as his “forever love” and “daily inspiration.” How sweet are they?!
The power couple met in 2009 at Ashley’s church, which her beau happened to be volunteering at, and instantly, they hit it off. “All I wanted to do was keep talking to Justin. The consistency and openness was so new it felt weird,” the Sports Illustrated alum wrote in her book A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty, and Power Really Look Like.”My romance with Justin was innocent and sweet. We went rollerblading and biking; we did karaoke, went to the movies, took an improv class together.”
Ashley and Justin have such a loving relationship — we can only imagine what great parents they’ll make!
