Model Ashley Graham and her husband, Justin Ervin, are officially parents. On January 20, Graham took to her Instagram account to announce the birth of their first child together.
Ashley and Justin first announced they were expecting in August 2019. The couple posted an adorable video on social media to share the big news.

And Ashley has remained open and honest about her pregnancy ever since. From sharing untouched photos of her changing body to getting real about the woes of growing out of all of her stretchy pants, the 32-year-old has bared it all.
She said during an episode of her EllenTube show, Fearless:
“The reason I had posted that original photo, I had just announced that I was pregnant and I thought then that I was going to feel good and I didn’t. I felt, I just felt terrible. And that morning I thought to myself. ‘Get it together, Ashley. There are other women out there going through the same thing as you. Why don’t you have a dialogue?’ This is a new body that I’m walking into why don’t I just put myself out there with this new body.“
Then months later, Ashley opened up about the weight she gained during her pregnancy. She admitted that despite feeling awful during the first few weeks, she had grown to love her body.
She wrote, “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.”
And back in November 2019, while a guest on The Ellen Show, Graham revealed the gender of her unborn child while playing a game of rapid-fire questions with Ellen DeGeneres. After being asked, “Are you having a girl or a boy?” Ashley screamed, “Ah, a boy!”
Finally, two months later, Ashley took to her Instagram story on January 20 to announce the birth of their baby boy on January 18. However, now that their bundle of joy has been welcomed into the world, the model isn’t being quite as open as she once was.
The new mom wrote, “At 6:00 p.m. on Saturday our lives changed for the better. Thank you for all the love and support during this incredible time.” She then included his birth date with a blue heart emoji by it.
What Ashley hasn’t shared with her fans yet is a photo of their baby boy or his name. It remains unclear if she will share either.
