Pregnant Ashley Graham poses naked to reveal her stretch marks
Ashley Graham is not one to hold back. The Sports Illustrated model took to social media last month to reveal that she's expecting her first child with husband, Justin Ervin, and since then she's been sharing her maternity style with her fans, all while espousing the body positive rhetoric she's beloved for.
The 31-year-old took to her Instagram stories over the weekend to share another nude snap. In the photo, Ashley's face is out of frame as she stands to the side naked, giving her fans a close look at her growing bump.
She uses one hand to cover her breasts, while the other holds up the camera to take the snap. You can see Ashley's stretch marks and tan lines in the photo, something that she has previously been praised for sharing before.
Watch Ashley Graham and Justin Ervin announce they are pregnant:
Ashley and her husband of nine years, Justin, announced the pregnancy with a video of the plus-size model cradling her stomach on their anniversary.
"Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life. It has been the best journey with my favorite person in the world," she captioned the post. "Today, we are feeling so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate with our GROWING FAMILY! Happy anniversary, @mrjustinervin Life is about to get even better."
Justin also took to his personal Instagram account, and shared a photo of him kissing his wife, while holding up a scan of the baby.
"To my forever love and my daily inspiration. Happy anniversary @ashleygraham," he wrote. "These 9 years have played out like a lifetime. I guess it’s because my life really started once you came into it. Now that we’ve made a life together, let’s make a life together. I love you and I love us. All of us..."
Justin and Ashley have been married since 2010 after meeting at church.

This is not the first time that the model has shared a nude snap, however. Last month she posted a picture captioned, "same same but a little different," and was roundly praised on the platform.
"I CANNOT WAIT for you to be a mother and teach another human being that ALL bodies are beautiful. You're going to be such an amazing mother," wrote one follower, while another corroborated "Right there with you mama! Lost and gained 1,000 lbs in my life tome, gave birth to 5 kids (last being twins). My body is a map of the journey I’ve been on and the scars that made me a mom! Blessed for all of them, and women just like you keeping it real [sic]."
