Ashley GrahamTo celebrate her last few weeks of pregnancy, she took to Instagram. The model posted several photos showing off her baby bump. Justin Ervin, her husband, is expecting twin boys.
The Model Celebrates Full Term
Graham captioned the pictures, “made it full term today (40 weeks!). due dates are just a suggestion, babies will always come on their birthday.” She and Ervin announced the pregnancy last summer, just a year and a half after the birth of their first child, Issac.
“The past year has been full of tiny surprises, big griefs, familiar beginnings and new stories,” Graham posted on Instagram at the time. “I’m just beginning to process and celebrate what this next chapter means for us.”
The couple shared the news that they were having twin boys in September. They posted a video of their surprise. “Are you serious? We’re gonna have three boys?” Graham laughed. Ervin chimed in: “You are kidding me!”
Graham: ‘I’m Up For The Challenge’
Graham has been documenting her pregnancies on Instagram, posting photos and candidly talking about her pregnancy. In an interview with PopSugar, the model said her new family dynamic “sounds insane. I’m possibly going into insanity. But you know what? I’m up for the challenge.”
Even though her life is about to get crazier, Graham says that she thrives on “organized chaos.” She added, “Twins run in my family. My grandfather’s a twin, and I have a ton of twin cousins.”
Graham also spoke about positive body image in the same interview. This was especially important for women who have had children. “Because our bodies are always changing, it’s always going to be this tug and pull of where you are with your body,” she said. “When I got pregnant with Isaac, I got smacked in the face with, ‘Oh, you’re going to have to really practice what you preach’ because my body was changing so quickly.”
“So now with this pregnancy, I actually haven’t even weighed myself because I just don’t want to know,’ Graham continued. “And it’s been really beneficial for me because my health isn’t determined by my weight. I know that I’m taking great care of myself and the boys, but there is this constant conversation that I’m having with myself, like: ‘Your body is a vessel. Your body is strong. Your body is meant to do this.’ And the affirmations never go away.” The twins should be arriving any time now!
