Yet another reason to love her.
Model Ashley Graham has taken to Instagram overnight to show off her post-baby body in all of its beautiful glory – and the internet is just as stoked as we are. Just over one month ago, Graham welcomed her first child – a son called Isaac Menelik Giovanni Ervin – with husband Justin Ervin. Since then, the new mom has been documenting her life with a baby in tow, shedding much welcomed light on the realities of post-birth life.
First, there was the diaper self which she hilariously captioned, “Raise your hand if you didn’t know you’d be changing your own diapers too. After all these years in fashion I could’ve never guessed that disposable underwear would be my favourite piece of clothing but here we are. No one talks about the recovery and healing (yes even the messy parts) new moms go through. I wanted to show you guys that it’s not all rainbows and butterflies.”
Then came a few excellent breastfeeding shots, and now Graham has posted a new nude selfie proudly showing off her stretch marks. In the caption she wrote, “same me. few new stories.” The post quickly caught the attention of her fans and celebrity friends alike, with Lily Aldridge, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, Doutzen Kroes, Iskra Lawrence and more commenting on the post praising both Graham and the marks for their power and what they represent.
Graham has long been an advocate for body positivity, frequently showing off her (bangin’) body on Instagram. And we’re thrilled to see there’s no sign of this slowing down anytime soon.
