Ashley Graham announced on Wednesday that she and her husband Justin Ervin are expecting their first child.
The supermodel has been slaying her Instagram game all summer with photos of her beach vacations and a glamorous trip to Italy with Ervin. But until now, the pair have been keeping one thing private: their growing family.
On Wednesday morning, both Graham and Ervin took to their social media to share the big news that the supermodel is expecting her first child with a cute video and a photo of a sonogram. Better yet, the news was announced on their ninth wedding anniversary.
“Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life,” Graham captioned her announcement. “Today, we are finally so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate with our GROWING FAMILY!”
The video, which starts off as a selfie, displays the 31-year-old’s gorgeous bump and big smiles on the faces of the parents-to-be. Naturally, Graham’s comments are flooded with well wishes.
“OMG!!!!!!!! I’m so happy for you two!!! Congrats!! You will be the best mom,” hairstylist Justine Marjan wrote.
“I’m over here reaching for the Kleenex again...” Graham’s personal trainer, Kira Stokes commented, “tears of JOY and LOVE.”
Ervin took to Instagram as well to share the news. His post featured the baby’s sonogram, as well as two throwback photos of the couple.
“These 9 years have played out like a lifetime. I guess it’s because my life really started once you came into it,” Ervin wrote. “Now that we’ve made a life together, let’s make a life together.”
