Ashley Graham, who is pregnant with twin boys, has been proudly documenting her changing body.
On Thursday, Graham posted a nude photo to her Instagram. In the caption, the model joked that her husband, Justin Ervin, thinks her stretch marks “look like the tree of life.”
"The female body is a miracle," body-positive icon Iskra Lawrence wrote in the comments.
Added another fan, "Thank you @ashleygraham for normalizing stretch marks. You look stunning mama. I got deep ones with both of my children and I am now so self conscious of my tummy. Thank you for showing stretch marks to be fierce and beautiful."
Earlier this week, Graham shared a time-lapse video of a prenatal yoga session. In the clip, Graham can be seen doing a series of poses including cat-cow and warrior, alongside her instructor, Sophie Green.
She also did yoga during her pregnancy with her son, Isaac, who was born last January.
“With this pregnancy, I haven’t even weighed myself because I just don’t want to know,” Graham told PopSugar last month. “And it’s been really beneficial for me because my health isn’t determined by my weight.”
“I know that I'm taking great care of myself and the boys, but there is this constant conversation that I’m having with myself, like: ‘Your body is a vessel. Your body is strong. Your body is meant to do this,” she continued. “And the affirmations never go away.”
Graham and Ervin announced in September that 22-month-old Isaac will soon have two baby brothers.
“I’m possibly going into insanity,” Graham said while speaking with PopSugar. "But you know what? I’m up for the challenge.”
Graham noted that she thrives on "organized chaos" and has plenty of experience with multiples.
“Twins run in my family,” she explained. “My grandfather’s a twin, and I have a ton of twin cousins.”
