Ashley Graham shows off baby bump in new inclusive swimwear bikini photos
Arguably the world's most famous plus-size model, Ashley Graham hasn't let being pregnant stop herself from living her best life on Instagram, and in fact, her baby bump regularly appears in her social media posts.
For instance, this week Ashley took to Instagram to share pictures of herself posing in a bikini, with her baby bump on full display.
The former Sports Illustrated model recently collaborated with Swimsuits For All, to launch a brand-new, limited-edition swimwear collection for Resort 2020.
Uploading a number of pics of herself, Ashley captioned the posts: "Come to mama 🍔🍔🍔 Anyone else feel like being pregnant gave you a whole new appreciation for your body?? 🙋🏻♀️ it’s also given me insights as designer and I’m so excited to see that reflected in my new @swimsuitsforall collection! [sic]"
She added: "The real test when we were designing this line was that none of these are maternity suits!! All I had to do was size up and they are still supportive and have an amazing fit 💪🏼 link in bio my new line out nowwww! [sic]"
In a recent interview with Vogue as part of their first 2020 issue, Ashley stated: "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."
She continued: "I was gaining weight rapidly. And I felt alone. And the one piece of advice that my stylist, Jordan Foster, gave me was, ‘Make pregnant friends.’ None of my friends were in relationships, let alone pregnant. And now I have nine pregnant friends."
