If there's anyone out there who knows how to inspire people, It's Ashley Graham.
Thanks to her, more and more plus-sized women have managed to gain some much-needed exposure in the modelling industry, and although we've still got a long way to go, Ashley's managed to show the world that having curves doesn't mean that you can't model with style.Check out Ashley's nude video below:
But she's just as uplifting off the catwalk as she is on it, and her body-positive social media posts have given her thousands of followers an incentive to love their body, particularly if it leans towards the voluptuous.
Indeed, Ashley is now pregnant, expecting her first child with her longtime partner, videographer, Justin Ervin. The couple first announced that they were expecting a baby back in August, and Ashley hasn't been shy about showing off her baby bump to the general public.
This week, for example, she was candid enough to share a nude video with her many followers on Instagram, showing that she clearly still embraces her shape even during the long gestation period.
In a long selfie video, Ashley (who added a cute little filter to her post) displays her rolls for the camera, before signing off with a smile at the end.
Ashley captioned the video: "Getting bigger and bigger and trying to embrace my new body everyday. It's a journey and I'm so thankful to have such a supportive community. [sic]"
Earlier this week, Ashley also uploaded a video of her workout routine to Instagram, sharing a video of herself alongside her personal trainer, Kira Stokes, which she captioned: "It’s a lifestyle ?? [sic]"
Ashley could be seen performing squats while pregnant, and her followers were impressed by her commitment to fitness.Watch Ashley's pregnant workout video below:
So there you have it. Basically, if you're looking for a role model, you could do a lot worse than Ashley, right?
