Oh, Baby: Ashley Graham & Husband Justin Ervin Just Welcomed Their 1st Child

Ashley Graham just added another monumental gig to her résumé: mama.  

The 31-year-old model and body-positivity activist welcomed her first child with her husband Justin Ervin on Saturday, January 18, and we can’t wait to see a pic.

Graham and Ervin announced the news via Instagram Stories on Monday, January 20, with a short message to fans and followers. To borrow the name of her hit podcast, this is A Pretty Big Deal for the couple.

“At 6:00 pm on Saturday our lives changed for the better,” Graham wrote in her Stories. “Thank you for all your love and support during this incredible time.” She finished the post with her baby’s birthdate and tagged her husband.

The married couple of nine years has yet to reveal their son’s name or a photo, but given that Graham was so candid and open about her pregnancy wins and woes on social media, we’re sure we’ll get more deets on the little guy soon.

Graham and Ervin first shared the news that they were expanding their family on August 14. What initially appeared to be an anniversary post, turned out to be even more exciting. At the time, Graham wrote, “Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life. It has been the best journey with my favorite person in the world! Today, we are feeling so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate our GROWING FAMILY! Happy anniversary, @mrjustinervin. Life is about to get even better.”  

Since then, the multi-hyphenate has walked in New York Fashion Week pregnant, dropped a new swimwear collection, posed in her birthday suit, launched a bridal line and casually appeared on the cover of Vogue.
