Ashley Graham is a champion of body positivity, so it should come as no surprise that she is celebrating the power of her changing body during pregnancy. At 5-months pregnant, the mama-to-be is proudly showing off her growing baby bump and fuller figure with an Instagram video for fans and followers.
“Getting bigger and bigger and trying to embrace my new body every day,” Graham captioned the video, which is set to Normani’s hit song “Motivation.” The video pans across her nude body, highlighting all her curves and stretch marks. It ends on Graham’s glowing face, showing her grinning from ear to ear.
She continued in the caption: “It’s a journey and I’m so thankful to have such a supportive community.”
The clip has garnered over 2.6 million views and tons of praise from Graham’s 9.2 million followers. “You look BEAUTIFUL 👑❤️😍” fellow model Karlie Kloss commented. Swimsuit model Kate Wasley praised Graham’s figure with a “Hot mumma.”
Fans also showed their support appreciation for the Sports Illustrated model. “I’m so glad you exist,” one fan gushed. “Welcome to the momma club… we wear our tiger stripes proudly,” added another.
But one fan’s comment really stands out as powerful reminder to cherish the pregnancy changes: “Be proud of your body now and after..there are some of us that don’t/can’t experience what you are going through.”
Ashley Graham first showed off her pregnant body back in August with an unfiltered nude photo on Instagram. “Same same but a little different,” she wrote at the time.
The image showed part of Graham’s breast, tummy, butt, and thighs complete with stretch marks, veins, and body rolls. It has since sparked other mothers to post similar photos and share their stories with self-love on social media.
Graham and Justin Ervin, her husband of nine years, announced they were expecting on August 14 with a sweet video clip revealing Graham’s baby bump. This is her first child, and we anticipate she will continue to be candid at every stage of pregnancy.
Don’t know about you, but we can’t wait for more of these beautiful posts.
