Ashley Graham posts nude selfie showcasing her growing baby bump and stretch marks in all their glory

While most models would shy away from putting their stretch marks on display during their pregnancy, Ashley Graham broke beauty stereotypes by posting a nude selfie which showed off her enormous baby bump and stretch marks.
The 31-year-old supermodel has been documenting her pregnancy on social media by religiously posting photos and videos of her growing belly ever since she announced that she was expecting a baby back in August.
Graham drew admiration after posting snaps without photoshopping or retouching them to smoothen out the marks that her pregnancy has left on her body.
Saturday, October 12, was no different, as Graham posted a nude selfie on her Instagram Stories that displayed her pregnant body in its original form. The late-night photo showed off the mother-to-be's curves as she covered her breasts while lying in bed.
The photo was apparently taken after Ashley had stripped down to her birthday suit and was resting on her bed after wrapping up a concert, where she was seen dancing the night away.
When one concerned fan asked the model if she was still wearing heels while pregnant, Ashley said that she managed to stay in them the entire night. “I wore them for a night! There’s no way I’d be able to wear heels all day pregnant!” she said. “But don’t get it twisted, I was on the dance floor getting down!”
This was not the first time that Ashley showed off her pregnant belly in a nude selfie. Days after announcing her pregnancy back in August, she took to Instagram to share a naked photo that put her stretch marks on the display. “Same same but a little different,” she captioned the post at the time.
The post inspired a lot of her female followers to take to social media themselves and post photos of how their bodies had changed post-pregnancy. Ashley shared some of the photos of her fans on her Instagram Stories and also thanked them for posting the pictures in a video.
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for posting all of your stretch mark pre-and-post pregnancy photos—whether you’ve had a baby or not it’s truly inspiring,” She said in a video.
