Ashley Graham is partially famous because she’s often taken her clothes off in the pages of various magazines.
Now, however, the model has an announcement to make based on something she did after taking her clothes off in the privacy of her own home.
Which is an odd way of saying the following…
… Graham is pregnant with her first child!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ashley and husband Justin Ervin both confirmed this amazing news in social media posts that coincided with their ninth wedding anniversary.
Wrote Graham alongside a video of the couple:
Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life. It has been the best journey with my favorite person in the world!
Today, we are feeling so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate with our GROWING FAMILY! Happy anniversary, @mrjustinervin. Life is about to get even better.
Ervin, a 30-year old who works as a director, also expressed his enthusiasm on Instagram.
He shared a sonogram photo, as well as two throwback shots of the pair, and wrote along with them:
“To my forever love and my daily inspiration. Happy anniversary @ashleygraham These 9 years have played out like a lifetime. I guess it’s because my life really started once you came into it.
Now that we’ve made a life together, let’s make a life together. I love you and I love us. All of us…
Graham has become one of the most successful models around, originally merely known as a "plus-sized" model, but now widely respected for reasons that go far beyond her fuller figure.
Yet… while she’s dedicated the past few years to this field, Graham also made it clear way back in 2016 that she wanted to start a family.
“We are going to totally have kids. We are probably going to do it in the next few years. Just a part of my brand building," she told Entertainment Weekly about four years ago."
The beauty reiterated this hope when talking to ELLE just this past January.
“For me, being a wife and being a woman, happiness doesn’t equate to having kids," she explained to this publication, adding sensibly:
"Kids will come when they come. Happiness right now, is building with my husband and building my business.”
Graham and Ervin met at church in New York City and got married when the model was 22. We’re so very happy for her!
