Celebrating 9 Months In A Bikini With In-N-Out
Ashley has been open about body-positivity since day one. The model has admitted to struggling with accepting her pregnant body, but she hasn't deprived it of tasty food. Just recently, Graham chowed down on juicy In-N-Out burgers while rocking her gorgeous bump in a tiny bikini.
The Instagram videos may be light-hearted, but Ashley has revealed the reality of dealing with pregnancy and her own body image issues.
"I feel like we all have complicated relationships with our body. Mine has been changing in some new and interesting ways," she told Grazia, as The Daily Mail reports.
"It hasn't been easy to embrace my pregnant body, but it's definitely a reminder of how awesome our bodies truly are," Ashley added.
And Sex During Pregnancy Is An Open Discussion For Her
You've got to give it to this girl – she will broach even the bravest of subjects. Ashley has spoken out about sex during pregnancy, even asking others for recommendations on positions.
“I’ve been literally asking every single one of my friends who have had babies or who’re pregnant, like, ‘What positions do you guys do?’ This has to be a normal conversation among mothers," she said.
The model also outlined how sensitive the bump can be depending on how it receives pressure.
“Because there’s this huge bulge that can be sensitive if you lay on it or go into a new position,” she stated.
Talk wasn't about how babies are made over on Ashley's Instagram today – more about how long they bake for.
