Ashley Graham and her husband of 12 years, Justin Ervin, are in a celebratory mood for their wedding anniversary.
According to the latest Instagram update, Graham celebrated their romance in the most endearing way imaginable, and her partner naturally returned the favor almost immediately.
Ashely Graham And Justin Ervin Mark 12th Wedding Anniversary With Adorable Message
“I love you forever, Justin,” the nearly six feet model gushed in her post’s caption, adding a screenshot of her private anniversary message to Ervin. The picture showed another shot of her locking lips with her husband while she penned under, “happy anniversary, baby. 12 years later, and we’re still the hottest couple around [kisses emoji].”
Not long after, thousands of fans showered the post with likes and adoring remarks, including famous personalities like Justine Marjan, Lori Harvey, Sabrina Elba, Jordan Foster, Lindsey Vonn, and Danielle Priano. While Marjan was all about the couple’s cuteness, Foster wished them a happy anniversary, adding that they were parents of three kids under the age of three but “still madly love each other.”
Like Foster, the majority of other fans wished the twosome a happy anniversary and at the same time flooded the comments section with red heart emojis and “couple goals” remarks. Around the same time Graham’s post went live, her spouse marked their anniversary with a tribute on his Instagram Story, featuring a throwback polaroid shot of himself with his wife.
The duo could be seen leaning heads together and beaming at the camera while Ervin wrote on the post, “12 years with my forever love,” adding, “Happy Anniversary. @ashleygraham.”

Despite having a swoon-worthy romance with the brilliant videographer, Graham was not always so lucky in the past when it came to relationships as she had unhealthy ones with men over the years. Fortunately, she met Ervin just in time, and while they prepared to welcome their first child in 2019, CheatSheet detailed their relationship timeline, including how they crossed paths.
The gorgeous model met her current partner in 2009 while volunteering for her church in New York City. Their meeting, as was reported, was in an “unconventional manner.” She shed more details about their link up to InStyle in 2017, saying that they were in church for “Porn Sunday,” a day when former porn stars came in to discuss how God and church had changed their life.
Graham was working then as a guide to guests, bringing them in and directing them to the “Porn Sunday” venue when she ran into Ervin, and they instantly felt a connection. Although she was used to forming physical connections with men, she felt the cinematographer was different and was certain she had found her perfect match in him.
All she wanted to do was keep talking to him, given that their bond’s “consistency and openness” was new, causing it to feel weird. She revealed so in her book, “A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty, And Power Really Look Like,” adding that their romance was “innocent and sweet” without any initial sexual advances.
Even with the genuineness of their relationship, when Graham eventually took Ervin home to Nebraska to meet her family, they did not approve because of his race as they were never huge supporters of interracial relationships. Nevertheless, that did not stop the twosome from getting hitched after the filmmaker popped the question the year following their first meeting.
The Body Positivity Advocate Almost Lost Her Life After Twins’ Birth
Back in May, Graham got candid about her childbirth experience that nearly caused her demise as she lost “liters of blood,” leading to her blacking out. The Blast reported that she revealed that birthing her twin sons Roman and Malachi in January not only made her hemorrhage, but she was also unable to “walk for a week.”
The mother-of-three recounted the experience in a Glamour narrative, stating that she lost blood the morning of their birth, and after, she went unconscious. She eventually woke up after feeling a light touch on her cheek, which she later found out was someone actually “smacking the crap out of my cheek.”
Upon gaining consciousness, Graham said she looked around the room and saw everyone surrounding her, saying words of encouragement without wanting to inform her of her blood loss initially. Following the delivery, she remained in a trundle bed for “four straight days” and could not leave her house for nearly two months with midwives regularly checking in on her.
