Ashley Graham Braves a Diaper Blow Out in Staples

The phrase “s*** just got real” took on a whole new meaning for Ashley Graham this past weekend.

The 32-year-old model and body positivity advocate was minding her own businesses and was presumably shopping for paper goods at Staples when her newborn son, Isaac Menelik Giovanni, decided to make things a little more exciting. Little Isaac had a full-on diaper blow-out in the aisles of Staples, leading Graham to improvise.

She shared a photo on Instagram that all parents can relate to. In it, she’s squatting down to change 1-month-old Isaac’s diaper in the middle of an aisle, right in front of a Sharpies and stationary display. 

She captioned the snap, ‘S*** just got real! First diaper blow up while running errands with no restroom in sight! Thank God I remembered to put the changing mat in the diaper bag.” (*Makes mental note to always carry changing mat in diaper bag*) 

The Pretty Big Deal podcast host covered her little dude’s face and bum with fitting brown heart emojis. Judging from Isaac’s reaction to their Staples outing and the inconvenience of not having a nearby restroom, we’re guessing Graham will be ordering her paper goods and products via Amazon now.

Graham has been super candid throughout her pregnancy and experience as a new mother. She and her husband, Justin Ervin, announced their pregnancy last August and welcomed Isaac on January 18. Since then, Graham has shared several breastfeeding pics, pumped in the back of an Uber and shared a selfie of her post-partum diapers.

All we can say is keep up the good work, Ashley.
