Leave it to Ashley Graham to make us new moms feel completely seen, and understood.
The model shared a series of snapshots from her busy life with newborn twins and a toddler on Wednesday — breastfeeding, pumping and burping included.
“I like it when your body goes pump pump pump,” she captioned the carousel, which features photos of not only her children but her leaky boobs and self-care routine.
Graham, 34, and her husband Justin Ervin welcomed twin boys — Malachi and Roman — in January. They joined big brother Isaac, 2. Life with three little ones under 2 must be a wild ride!
Graham has always been open and honest about motherhood, sharing intimate pictures from her time at home with her babies, as well as her breastfeeding journey.
“To me, breastfeeding, whether you do it or don’t do it as a mother, like, it should just be normalized,” she told Entertainment Tonight last year. “Just like anything else when it comes to being a parent. Everybody parents differently, everybody treats their body differently. So to post yourself breastfeeding should be normalized just as much as giving your child a bottle.”
She’s also been a beacon of female empowerment and proves every day that being beautiful has nothing to do with what size clothes you wear. As a mom, she’s taken her body positive platform to a very meaningful level as she shares photos of her stretch marks and postpartum experience.
“Believe me when I say your body is beautiful,” she wrote on Instagram last summer, “and I know it’s easy to tell yourself the lie that you’re not good enough, thin enough, sexy enough, ‘flawless’ enough to wear a tank top or a swimsuit, but it’s hot out there and so are you. Don’t let your mind stop you from enjoying your life to the fullest (and remember to say ‘I love you’ to yourself every day).”
