Embracing the changes. Model Ashley Graham is currently about eight months pregnant with baby No. 1, and now that she’s nearing the end of her pregnancy, she’s revealing just how much her body has changed. On Saturday, December 14, Ashley took to Instagram to reveal how much weight she’s gained during her pregnancy along with a photo of her baring her baby bump while practicing yoga.
“Throughout my pregnancy so far I’ve gained 50 lbs. And the best part is, I don’t care!” the 32-year-old wrote in her caption. “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.”

Throughout my pregnancy so far I’ve gained 50lbs. And the best part is, I don’t care! 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.
Fans flooded the comments to praise Ashley for her openness throughout her pregnancy journey and to thank her for her positive outlook on pregnancy weight gain. “So happy that you’ve figured out what works best to make you feel best. Love that you don’t care about your weight gain!! It’s refreshing. Really all about what’s best for you [and] your boy!! I can’t wait to see all his cuteness,” one fan wrote, adding two pink sparkle heart emojis and a baby bottle emoji. Ashley responded, “Took me about [eight] months to get here — but it’s a journey!”
The Sports Illustrated model has shared every step of her pregnancy journey with fans via social media ever since she announced she was expecting her first child (a baby boy) with her husband, Justin Ervin, back in August — on the couple’s nine-year wedding anniversary. “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,” she wrote, adding a red heart emoji. “Life is about to get even better,” she continued, then added a kissing face emoji.
And it looks like Justin, 31, and Ashley’s little one could be arriving any day now. On December 10, Ashley shared an update with fans about her baby’s position in the womb. “Head is down and we are ready to push!” she wrote on Instagram. So exciting!
