'Missing these moments': Ashley Graham shares throwback breastfeeding pics on twin boys’ first birthday
NEWARK, NEW JERSEY: Ashley Graham took a trip down memory lane on Saturday, January 7 as she shared a slew of throwback breastfeeding pictures on Instagram to celebrate the first birthday of her adorable twin boys. The plus-size model and television presenter, 35, welcomed Roman and Malachi with her husband, cinematographer Justin Ervin, 35.
The Sports Illustrated cover model captioned one of the breastfeeding images on her Instagram story with "Missing these moments, I can't believe how fast this year went!!!" The wholesome snap captured Graham beaming up at the camera as she rested on the couch with both newborns swaddled on either side. In the second image, the 'Pretty Big Deal' podcaster is seen enjoying a large bowl of lunch as her babies suckle away. Their tiny heads rested on a large breastfeeding pillow.
Graham also gave a sneak peek into her darling twins' first birthday celebrations. Her family celebrated the special day with balloon animals and individual cakes for each birthday boy. Roman and Malachi adorned cute bibs that read "I'm 1 today!" The throwbacks came just a day after Graham shared a collection of bump pictures. The semi-nude pregnancy flashbacks were taken in the days and hours before she gave birth to the twins.
One image captured the supermodel flaunting her baby bump in a lime green turtle neck sweater. Another showcased Graham in nothing but a bra. "Just hours before my two little blessings popped out one year ago!" she captioned the pic. Earlier this week, Ashley also shared a shirtless photo of her handsome husband playing with their children on the floor. Apart from Roman and Malachi, Ashely and Justin are also parents to 2-year-old son Isaac.
The star has been candid about her postpartum hair loss struggles and how they have significantly impacted her confidence. "I am the person who has been shouting from the rooftops to you all, “Love the skin you’re in.” Yet for me, the births of all my three children threw a lot of that out of the window," she shared in an essay for Glamour. "As a body advocate, I’ve learned it’s okay if the journey to love the skin you’re in is more complex than you could ever have imagined. Even now, if I’m completely honest, I go in waves. I am still not entirely comfortable in my body, no matter my own body positivity advocacy. There are days where I look at myself and I say, “There's nothing you can't handle. There's nothing you can't do.”
