Supermodel Ashley Graham has given birth to her first child. Reportedly, Graham and husband Justin Ervin welcomed their baby boy to the world on Saturday, January 18.
Graham shared the news on her Instagram story, where she wrote, “At 6:00 pm on Saturday our lives changed for the better. Thank you for all your love and support during this incredible time.”
So far, the couple hasn’t shared any other details of the news, including the baby’s name. Graham and Ervin have been married for close to ten years.
Graham announced in August last year that the couple was expecting their firstborn. “Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “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.”
While pregnant, the 32-year-old model starred on one of the January covers of Vogue’s motherhood issue, wearing an Oscar de la Renta caftan. She showed off her baby bump on the runway in September by walking in Zendaya and Tommy Hilfiger's New York Fashion Week show.
“Tommy told me I was the first pregnant woman who’d ever walked his runway. It was kind of like a block party in Harlem, all kinds of women, all genders, races, and everybody’s heels were so high," she had told Vogue. “I was praying I wasn’t going to fall down. Which is an awful lot to ask of a model in her second trimester—I have wounds on my feet!”
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Graham received motherhood advice from tennis star Serena Williams, comedian Amy Schumer and Kim Kardashian.
Graham recently debuted a new swimwear campaign with Swimsuits for All. She told Harper's Bazaar earlier this month, “Shooting this 'Swimsuits for All' campaign while pregnant was truly empowering. I’ve been honest and have shared my feelings about my body changing, and this shoot for my anniversary collection reignited my confidence and reaffirmed that our bellies are beautiful. We should be celebrating our bodies at all stages throughout our lives.”
