A lot of celebrities make the days and months after giving birth seem glamorous, but Ashley Graham is showing the tougher side of new motherhood. The model took to social media to get candid about her body and one challenging aspect of having a child.
She wrote, “Raise your hand if you didn’t know you’d be changing your own diapers too. After all these years in fashion I never could’ve guessed that disposable underwear would be my favorite piece of clothing but here we are! No one talks about the recovery and healing (yes even the messy parts) new moms go through. I wanted to show you guys that it’s not all rainbows and butterflies! It’s been tough, but my friend Chelsea @cmrh and ceo at @fridamom is making waves and starting honest conversations. It’s unbelievable the obstacles we still face talking about what women really go through. All their stuff she sent me has been a life saver.”
Ashley first announced the birth of her son, Isaac Menelik Giovanni Ervin, stating, “At 6:00PM on 01/18/2020, we welcomed 7lbs 5oz of love into our world. Meeting our son has made our hearts incredibly full and we can’t wait to introduce him to you.” This is Ashley’s first baby with her husband, Justin Ervin.
