Ashley Graham Is Expecting Her First Child

Share on Facebook

If you’re wondering what your life is missing, the answer is Ashley Graham. Ashley is an American model who has also taken on the role of a body rights activist. She is not only an incredible role model for young women but also anyone who has ever felt insecure in their body. Many people know her as being a plus-sized model, but Ashley has smashed those stereotypes, claiming that there is no need for that kind of title; she is a model and an incredibly beautiful one at that.

And now the inspiring model has announced that she’s expecting her first child.

The star uploaded the most adorable pregnancy announcement to Instagram and we can’t get enough.

Keep scrolling to see her announcement…

She was born in Nebraska and lived quietly in a small town.

She was discovered while she was shopping at a mall in Omaha in 2000, and since that mall trip, her life has never been the same.

She was diagnosed with ADD and dyslexia at a young age. This diagnosis caused her to struggle with understanding herself fully. “Even when I go to the teleprompter sometimes, I remember that feeling. But I have to just shake it off and go back to my affirmations,” Ashley said in an interview with Glamour.

Since her discovery, she’s been featured in Vogue, Sports Illustrated, Glamour, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar, among other prestigious magazines.

The company is one of the most well-known modeling agencies and has been for decades. Wilhelmina has also signed other famous models, such as Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner.

Ashley played the leading lady in DNCE’s music video Toothbrush. Joe Jonas was lucky to stand alongside her.

She appeared in a pretty controversial Lane Bryant ad that many people thought was too “inappropriate” for television which is pretty ridiculous considering every other lingerie commercial shows the same amount of skin, if not more.

She has broken many stereotypes surrounding what a typical model should look like.

She is loud and proud of who she is, and she wants others to feel the same.

The Ashley Grahm Collection has been quite a hit. She also started the empowering hashtag #IAMSIZESEXY to inspire others to have confidence, and comfortability with their own sexuality– something she feels very passionate about.

Her speaking skills are amazing– if not better –than her modeling skills.

She crushed it with her poise, elegance, joy and humor.

The couple, who met at church in New York City, tied the knot 9 years ago.

It’s the stuff of every woman’s dreams, let’s be honest.

And while we expected a celebratory Instagram snap of the happy couple, we certainly weren’t expecting what we got instead…

In the video posted to Instagram, Ashley and Justin turn the camera on themselves and zoom out to reveal the model’s baby bump. “Surprise!” they yell as Ashley rubs her belly. The expectant parents then go on to share a kiss to mark the happy announcement.

And people couldn’t be more happy for the couple, with one user writing: “You’re going to make the best parents,” while another said: “That glow though!! Congratulations to you both.” What a way to celebrate your anniversary. Wishing lots of luck to the parents-to-be!
