Since announcing her pregnancy, Ashley Graham has taken fans along for the ride almost every step of the way. But until now, she has been keeping one major detail under wraps: the gender of her baby. During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, the 32-year-old model appeared to accidentally reveal her baby’s sex — and when she’s due.
While playing a game of “Lightning Round,” which Graham plays with guests on her podcast, Pretty Big Deal, DeGeneres asked a series of rapid-fire questions, including things like her celebrity crush and her most embarrassing wardrobe malfunction. Then, she threw out the question we were all waiting for: “Are you having a boy or a girl?” she asked.
“A boy,” Graham responds to everyone’s surprise. “Yay! I’m having a boy!” she shouted as the audience cheered. “I’m gonna be a mommy to a boy!” Her sheer joy at announcing the gender of her baby is unmistakable.
She also shared that she’s due sometime in January, though she noted her baby could arrive earlier or later than expected. When she first sat down with DeGeneres, she said, “This is my last trip. I flew just for you.”
Ashley Graham and Ervin first announced they were expecting back in August with a sweet Instagram video in honor of their anniversary. The clip starts with a close-up shot of the couple, panning back to reveal Graham’s bump.
“Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life,” she wrote in the caption. “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. 😘”
Since then, Graham has continued her body positive activism by sharing photos of her pregnant body, embracing the natural changes like weight gain and stretch marks. “Same same but a little different”, she wrote along with a naked selfie over the summer.
