Ashley Graham announces her pregnancy on her nine-year wedding anniversary

Ashley Graham is pregnant! Usually I hate celebrities’ over-the-top pregnancy announcements, but this is super cute – Ashley posted a very sweet little video on her Instagram with the announcement. Her husband Justin is very good-looking, right? Ashley wrote this:

Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life. It has been the best journey with my favorite person in the world! 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 and Ashley have been together for nine years and I often got the impression that she was putting babies on hold so she could focus on her career. In an interview earlier this year, she was asked if she wanted kids right now and she said, “For me, being a wife and being a woman, happiness doesn’t equate to having kids. Kids will come when they come. Happiness, right now, is building with my husband and building my business.” But everybody changes and I guess she was ready and he was ready. She’s also already thought about what it will be like to raise a biracial child and she’s already begun to educate herself on so many issues involving race. I think this is good news for everybody! Congrats to Ashley and Justin.

    Congrats to her and her husband. As far as her educating herself in issues involving race…yeah…based on things she’s said and done over the last year she’s got a long way to go. Hopefully her husband and his family will be a guide for the child in that area.

      What was she doing this year? Last I heard she was speaking out and attempting to raise awareness and calling out her own privilege. Admittedly, though, I haven’t really been paying attention to her.

      As for the post- congrats to them. She will try and will be imperfect but I’ve got a couple friends whose white mothers were super committed to raising consciousness around race and awareness and, while imperfect, they’re much better than that whole “Love is color blind. Love will bring us together.” group who are always out with their kids’ hair looking dry and their skin ashy and nary a Black person in their community.

        Well there was the asking Jason Mamoa to “do a traditional dance for her” on the Oscars red carpet. (Which Lisa Bonet had to basicaly tell her how inappropriate that was and shut it down) Or the story she told about her husband being spit on in Europe and her telling him not to get angry about it but use it as a “teachable” moment instead. Like I said she may be learning but she has a long way to go. There’s a tone deafness that very much still exists there.

    I really admire her. She’s such a fun and smart celebrity, not full of herself.

    Wow this will be a stunningly beautiful baby

    This explains the radio silence on social media. When she does that she comes out big with a new project.

    With all the awfulness going on, this is nice to read about.

    Congrats !!!!
