Ashley Graham Showed Off Her Postpartum Stretch Marks In a NSFW Selfie
"Same me. Few new stories."
On Monday, the model shared a selfie on Instagram showing her postpartum stretch marks, writing, "same me. few new stories."
Graham, who gave birth to son Isaac Menelik Giovanni Ervin in January, has previously discussed the realities of new motherhood, writing in an Instagram post, "Raise your hand if you didn’t know you’d be changing your own diapers too. After all these years in fashion I never could’ve guessed that disposable underwear would be my favorite piece of clothing but here we are! No one talks about the recovery and healing (yes even the messy parts) new moms go through. I wanted to show you guys that it’s not all rainbows and butterflies!"
Graham has been praised in the past for sharing unedited photos of herself online. She told InStyle in an interview in 2017, "When I sat down and took a photo of my cellulite and posted it on Instagram. I think there’s nothing more real than that. It’s there. I’m not afraid to talk about it. I’m not afraid to show it. And I don’t think that other women should be ashamed of theirs as well."
As she enters this new chapter in her life, it looks like we will continue to see candid glimpses of what she's going through. Something that is surely powerful for many of her fans.
