The couple welcomed Isaac Menelik Giovanni Ervin into the world on Jan. 18, 2020
Ashley Graham has been thoroughly enjoying motherhood for the past year and is already getting nostalgic about her growing little boy.
She spoke about her pregnancy on Sunday and shared some throwback images on her Instagram story as she prepared to celebrate Isaac’s first birthday. Among them was a video of her dancing in a cropped sweater and underwear during a shoot back in December 2019, just weeks before giving birth.
Life after Isaac
The 33-year-old body positivity advocate continually provided updates for her then 10 million followers throughout her labour. She said she tried acupuncture as a natural way to induce labor, but it was painful and didn’t work. She also spoke about breast pumping, while posting a video about an unsuccessful attempt. She also shared an image of her going out to breakfast before going into labor, saying she went to eat with full contractions happening.
Graham and husband Justin Ervin, 32, got married in 2010 and welcomed their first child on January 18, 2018. They spent the majority of quarantine with her husband and son at her family’s farm in Lincoln, Nebraska.
A VOGUE COVER!!! — celebrating inclusivity, mothers, pregnancy and love — is so surreal. I have dreamed of this moment my entire career since I was a catalogue model living in Nebraska two decades ago. Thank you #AnnaWintour and the entire @voguemagazine team pic.twitter.com/KImemGFn8s

She has also started working again, and walked the runways at Milan Fashion Week and posed for Vogue Italia. During an interview with Self Magazine, she admitted enjoying some alone time during work trips, and said it was actually a vacation and not what she was expecting. She spoke about her nervousness about leaving him since she hadn’t left him alone for more than 5 hours.
She also shared about how she and Ervin makes time for their relationship, saying they set aside Thursdays for date nights. Also, she’s more organised than before after Isaac came.
