Ashley Graham breastfeeds newborn son and reveals 'there's nothing I can't do'
New mom Ashley Graham welcomed her first child, a baby boy, with her husband Justin Ervin on January 18.
And despite it having been only a couple of weeks since she gave birth to Isaac Menelik Giovanni Ervin, the body-positive supermodel has already been incredibly candid about the experience with fans.
Here's the moment baby Isaac was introduced to the world:
In fact, in a recent post to Instagram, the 32-year-old can be seen breastfeeding her child with Ervin right by her side, proudly holding his son's head.
Graham writes in the touching caption: "I remember holding Isaac for the first time and telling Justin, “Now we’re family forever” I have so many reasons to be grateful; all of the love and support from this amazing community, an incredible husband, and a beautiful baby who has opened my eyes to just how amazing this world really is. @mrjustinervin and Isaac, thank you for being my favorite @prettybigdealpod guests so far."
The post comes after Isaac's public debut in yesterday's episode of her podcast, Pretty Big Deal.
In November, Ashley Graham shared this nude pregnancy video with her Instagram followers:
"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,' the doting mom says in the podcast. 'There's nothing that could come my way where I say, 'Oh, that's too hard, I can't handle that.' I went through laboring for six hours naturally."
Ashley Graham and Justin Ervin first announced the pregnancy all the way back in August with this video:
In an interview with Vogue as part of their first 2020 issue, Graham spoke openly about how her pregnancy affected her sex life with her husband: "I feel like every relationship goes in waves of sex. You’re like, ‘Hey, do we need to plan this?’ And now, with pregnancy, things have been really different."
She continued: "Because there’s this huge bulge that can be sensitive if you lay on it or go into a new position. I’ve been literally asking every single one of my friends who have had babies or who’re pregnant, like, ‘What positions do you guys do?’ This has to be a normal conversation among mothers."
She also revealed that her friends had been very supportive throughout her pregnancy: "There’s just this camaraderie. It’s a secret society that I didn’t know about."
She continued: "I was hiding my pregnancy for the first four months. I’ve always had control over my body … but I had this life inside of me saying, ‘It’s not yours anymore, it’s mine.’ And you have to just succumb. And I felt like I didn’t have anyone to talk to."
