Looks like Ashley Graham will be adding Mom to her long list of accomplishments. The supermodel, famous for being the first plus sized model on the cover of Sports Illustrated and championing the body positivity movement, announced today that she and husband Justin Ervin are expecting. “Nine years ago today I married the love of my life,” she wrote in the caption of an Instagram video for her nearly 9 million followers. “It has been the best journey with my favorite person in the world! Today we are feeling so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate with our GROWING FAMILY! Happy Anniversary @mrjustinervin ❤️ Life is about to get even better.”
Check out the cute video below, which started as a v relatable argument over how to correctly frame a selfie video. (If your man doesn’t know how to fit two people into one selfie frame, he’s not the one for you sis.)

Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life. It has been the best journey with my favorite person in the world! Today, we are feeling so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate with our GROWING FAMILY! Happy anniversary, @mrjustinervin ❤️ Life is about to get even better. ?
Ervin shared an Instagram post of his own, calling his wife his “forever love” and “daily inspiration”, and okay, I take back what I just said about correct selfie framing, because I need to find myself a man like Justin Ervin. In the photo (which perfectly fit the both of them, might I add), he and Ashley are holding up a sonogram photo of what’s bound to be one of the most beautiful babies of 2019.

To my forever love and my daily inspiration. Happy anniversary @ashleygraham These 9 years have played out like a lifetime. I guess it’s because my life really started once you came into it. Now that we’ve made a life together, let’s make a life together. I love you and I love us. All of us…
Graham has been vocal about wanting a family, first mentioning in a 2016 interview with ET that she hoped to have kids in the next few years, and again this past January with Elle magazine, saying, “kids will come when they come.” Put it into the universe and it shall come! (Things I say after watching a 5-minute Youtube conspiracy video on The Secret.) Graham and Ervin met at church 9 years ago and have been going strong ever since, which really makes me reevaluate things. For instance, if I have been doing any one thing aside from breathing consistently over the last 9 years. Whatever!
Congratulations guys! I’m so happy for you and not at all jealous about how your already radiant skin is somehow glowing even more. You have your beautiful family, tomorrow’s pay day, I’ll just buy some more dewy finishing spray!
