AceShowbiz - Ashley Graham is being real about everything, including the fact that her body is far from perfection. The plus-size model, who is currently expecting her first child with husband Justin Ervin, took to her Instagram account on Sunday, August 18 to share a photo of her showing off her stretch marks and other imperfections of her skin.
The photo showed the supermodel going completely nude with her hand covering her breast. Captioning the pic, which saw her going brave and daring by showing her stretch marks, veins and discolorations in her skin around her belly and thighs, Ashley wrote, "Same same but a little different."
Fans quickly praised her for the post. "I freaking love you for this. THIS is what real women look like," said one fan in the comment section. "Thanks for always being real and honest! Beautiful! Makes me feel that I could be beautiful too with all my cellulite and stretch marks!" another one added.
Ashley's post also caught the attention of fellow celebrities. Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum left a comment, "My Lord, THANK YOU for this." Meanwhile, model Lily Aldridge showed love to the soon-to-be mom with several heart emojis.
Ashley and Justin dropped the baby news on Wednesday, August 14 as they celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary. They posted a video of her and Justin with a background of lusty trees. They jokingly bickered about the camera angle before the camera panned to show Ashley's burgeoning baby bump. "Surprise!" she said before they kissed, as Justin caressed her baby bump.
"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," Ashley captioned the clip.
Justin also shared their photo from the same location. In the image, he planted a kiss on his wife's cheek while holding a sonogram picture. "To my forever love and my daily inspiration. Happy anniversary @ashleygraham," he wrote in the caption. "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..."
Ashley and Justin, a videographer, met at church in 2009. They tied the knot a year later.
