Ashley Graham has shared the first snippet of her life as a mother of three.
The American model, who welcomed twin boys on January 7 with her husband husband Justin Ervin, shared a stunning image of herself breastfeeding one of the one-month olds while she held the other.
In the caption, she revealed their names along with a candid update about motherhood.
“Malachi & Roman,” she began.
“My boys have been the greatest teachers and biggest reminders that I can do hard things. this has not been easy, but it’s so worth it. Still can’t believe I have 3 children. Can’t wait to share my birth & postpartum journey with you all soon.”
In the comments of Graham’s candid new post, Ervin wrote to his wife: “More proud of you than words can express.”
The pair are also parents to their eldest son, Isaac Menelik Giovanni, who is two years old.
Graham announced her family had gone from three to five in January with an Instagram story, writing: “Justin and I are so excited that our baby boys are here. They were born early this morning at home and are happy and healthy.”
She added that she was “taking some time to heal up and connect with my husband and three boys, but I truly cannot wait to share more with you all.”
His wife’s biggest supporter, Ervin reposted Graham’s story and said, “I love you, @ashleygraham.”
Graham and Ervin first met in 2009—in an elevator, no less.
Rom-com-worthy as ever, the pair crossed paths while the model was volunteering for her church, where she would bring people up to the correct floor of the building via elevator. According to Oprah Daily, Ervin walked in with a friend one day, who nudged him and told him, “If you don’t talk to her, I will.”
The rest, as they say, was history. They married in 2010 and in 2020, they welcomed their first son, Isaac.
Like her twins, Graham also welcomed Isaac at home, later revealing on her YouTube show, Pretty Big Deal, “I have to say, now that I gave birth and I did it naturally and I felt everything, I feel like there’s nothing I can’t do.”
She added of Ervin, who was present throughout the whole birth: “To go straight from the pool to the bed with our son and just hold him, what a bond.”
We have no doubt Graham will share more details about welcoming her twins in due course, but for now, we’re glad she’s revelling in her new baby bubble.
