After Graham talked about her Pretty Big Deal podcast episode with Shay Mitchell and the Motherhood Sessions podcast, she introduced Linda, adding that her mom was extremely helpful during her own pregnancy.
The model gushed, "I have learned everything that I know about being a mom from my mom. It has been remarkable." And Linda chimed in, "It's been a wild ride."
The mother-daughter duo discussed common questions and concerns that relate to new moms, including prepartum depression, sleep training and birth plans. While talking about her own pregnancies, Linda revealed that she never followed a birth plan. She said, "I don't recall really being given a birth plan, basically you just did what you were told. And there weren't options, nor did you have a community (of mothers) like you have now. But I had good experiences."
Graham welcomed her first child, Isaac Menelik Giovanni Ervin, with her husband, Justin Ervin, in January. During her interview with Elle, she opened up about embracing her postpartum body, saying, "When I got pregnant, I had to reimagine my relationship with my body with this creature inside me taking over. I was gaining weight so rapidly. Then, to get stretch marks on my stomach, that to me was like, 'Oh my gosh. I can’t believe this happened.' At first, it felt devastating, and then when I met Isaac, I said, 'No, this is exactly what every woman has talked about for ages. This is not just a battle wound. This is something that has changed my life forever, and I’m going to celebrate my new body.'"
Yet another reason why we love this body-positive mama.
