Her First Pregnancy

Super model Ashley Graham has been at the forefront of the body positivity movement as her career started to rise, and she has kept up that attitude through her first pregnancy. Graham gave birth to a son on January 18, her first child with husband Justin Ervin.

Graham kept it real throughout her pregnancy, admitting that it wasn't always easy to love her changing body.

"I feel like we all have complicated relationships with our body. Mine has been changing in some new and interesting ways. It hasn’t been easy to embrace my pregnant body, but it’s definitely a reminder of how awesome our bodies truly are."

She Keeps It Real

Graham previously spoke about how she felt that pregnancy changed her into a "new body" and made her feel "so isolated" and "so alone."

However, she eventually grew to love being pregnant, despite a 50 pound weight gain.

"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."

Living Life In A Changed Body

Graham posted a new photo of her postpartum body one month out since giving birth, putting her stretch marks on full display with the caption "same me. few new stories."

Graham has been candid about her stretch marks before, explaining that she posted nude photos of her pregnant body to help assure other women that what they're going through is normal.

"I had just announced that I was pregnant and I thought then I was going to feel good and I didn’t. I just felt terrible. And that morning, actually … I was like, ‘Get it together, Ashley, there’s other women out there that are going through the same thing as you — why don’t you have a dialogue?’"

She's Candid On Social Media

Her followers loved her candid pic and flooded her comment section with encouraging words and gratitude.

"Such a beautiful map of a life well traveled!"

"16 year old me sobbed over my first set of these. I haven’t learned to love them, but I have got to a place where I don’t give a s*+t about them. You look (even more) beautiful to me."

"Stories of LIFE!"

"Thank you for this picture, makes me feel so much better of myself and my similar stretch marks!"
