Ashley Graham, who had her twins — making three kids — back in January, appears to still have some ‘baby weight,’ which does not seem to bother her.
The prominent model, known for using her social media platforms to preach body positivity, recently took to her Instagram Story to spread her gospel again while also assuring fellow mothers who are in her shoes to not ‘feel alone.’
Ashley Graham Tells Mothers On Instagram Not To Feel Alone With Having ‘Baby Weight’
Looking homely in a plain black tee, Graham videoed herself walking in her home and sending an encouraging message to mothers out there. She said:
“Not sure you need to hear this right now, but I do, and if you haven’t lost your baby weight and you feel like, hmm, I haven’t lost my baby weight, you’re not alone.”
A goofy selfie came after the video showing her in the same T-shirt, pouting her lips to the side, and making the peace sign with her fingers. A message was also attached implying she had just returned from a trip: “And me back to mom life after being in Europe for 3 weeks of fabulousness.”
The semi-nude update featured her wearing nothing but black underwear and posing for two topless bathroom selfies. She had her hair bound in a bun in the revealing pictures and donned a gold pendant with matching gold earrings and rings.
Standing in front of a mirror, Graham, who birthed her two sons a few months before, showed off her magnificent post-pregnancy body with one arm barely concealing her ample bosom and the other holding her phone.
In further appreciation of her changed form, she did not hesitate to share a closer view of her stomach, covered with cellulite from childbirth. “Hi, new tummy,” the body positivity advocate began in the caption, “We’ve been through a lot. Thank you. #3monthspostpartum.”
In little to no time, numerous fans penned positive remarks in the comment section, commending her for being open about her pregnancy journey. Several celebs were also among the supporters, including former plus-sized model Jada Sezer, Danish supermodel Helena Christensen, and actress Frieda Pinto.
Sezer commented, “Always so refreshing to see women’s bodies raw, unfiltered, and in all its glory,” while Christensen wrote, “Amazing the lives you’ve created and carried and pushed into the world.” Pinto shared similar sentiments by stating that Graham’s tummy “has the most beautiful, wholesome stories to tell.”
Following the birth of the TV presenter’s twins, she announced that she would take a break from social media to heal and bond with her husband and their sons, Isaac Melnik, and the twins, Malachi and Roman.
In February, Malachi and Roman were first unveiled to fans via a heartwarming post showing them with their mother curled up on a couch. Graham gazed down with affection at one of the boys who suckled on her exposed bosom while she held her son tenderly in her free arm.
She revealed their names in the caption and got real about childbirth and motherhood, which were not hassle-free experiences for her. Despite the challenges, the 34-year-old believed her kids were worth every pain and were the “greatest teachers and reminders” that she could accomplish complex tasks.
