Ashley Graham Comes to Accept Mom Guilt

The 35-year-old model, who shares three children with her husband Justin Ervin, realizes that it's impossible to strike the perfect balance between her career and the pressures of motherhood all the time.

AceShowbiz - Ashley Graham has learned to "live" with mom guilt. The 35-year-old model, who has Isaac, three, and 18-month-old twins Malachi and Roman with her husband Justin Ervin, has revealed that she's learned to balance her career with the pressures of motherhood.

The brunette beauty told PEOPLE, "I mean, I'm guilty every day. [Author] Ariana Huffington actually told me, she was like, 'You just have to get over it.' If you live in the guilt, then it's just going to keep hindering you. And I'm only three and a half years into motherhood, so I'm just doing my best every day."

Despite this, Ashley acknowledged that it's impossible to strike the perfect balance all of the time. She shared, "I mean, the idea of balance, I wish it existed. What I do is I have these in-depth conversations with myself and my husband about - I have set up my kids so that when I'm home, I'm home and I'm locked in."

Last year, Ashley likened motherhood to "running a marathon everyday." The model admitted that it's been difficult for her to find the ideal work-life balance.

Speaking about her morning routine, Ashley told The Cut, "I brush my teeth and go downstairs to make coffee and, if I'm hungry, have fruit or something light. Then, I'll make my two-year-old's oatmeal. He's obsessed. He even eats it dry - he calls it 'little oatmeal,' and then cooked oatmeal is 'big oatmeal.' So I make sure to have a bowl of cooked and another of dry, because I don't know what kind of mood he's going to wake up in. Then, if the twins are still asleep, I try to do a little stretch to get my body warmed up for the day, because managing three kids and working is basically like running a marathon everyday. By seven o'clock, I'm on my second cup of coffee."
