Graham, 33, recently shared with WSJ. Magazine how motherhood is with son Isaac Menelik Giovanni and just how elated she is to expand her family with husband Justin Ervin.
“I would get pregnant yesterday if I could,” Graham said in the interview. She then added, “I’ve ‘accidentally’ had unprotected sex while I’m ovulating just to see if I can while I’m breastfeeding.”
The model went on to address how motherhood amid the pandemic has shifted her identity in a way.
“There’s Ashley the brand and then there’s Ashley the mom, wife — and we’re all stuck under one roof together. Who is she? I’ve been talking to a therapist about it now, too. I’ve always morphed,” Graham said, explaining that she began therapy in May.
“It’s been to my advantage because that’s the industry [I am] in. But in morphing, I’ve also kind of lost the core, and I feel like 2020 has enhanced the losing of the core, of who she is because of the pandemic and the baby,” she continued. “So what I’m working on is the core of Ashley right now and also her past, helping embrace that.”
Previously Graham shared her journey to motherhood while celebrating Isaac’s 1st birthday just last month in a clip with a month-to-month recap of her first year with her son.
“January, you were earth-shattering and ground-breaking for me,” she said of the month she gave birth to her son. “… I learned to love in a way that I never knew I could love. Never. People tell you, people try to explain it to you, but you don’t know love until you have a child of your own like that.”
“Happy birthday, Isaac. I love you so much,” she said later said. “I cannot believe how fast this year went, watching everything: how you turned on your own and crawled on your own and started talking and walking on your own. And how we play with the ball, kicking and throwing, and how your Daddy loves you so much and how much I can see you love him back. It’s just this beautiful bond.”
In a tribute to Instagram on the same day — Graham also gave a shout-out to moms everywhere.
“This year has taught us just how strong, adaptable, and fierce we can be. Sending love to everyone going through any stage of their motherhood journey during a pandemic!” she wrote. “One year down and I can’t wait to see where the rest takes us.”
