Ashley Graham praised for posting nude photo of her pregnant body: 'Just a little bit more of love'

Ashley Graham may have waited a few months to announce her pregnancy, but she’s not longer keeping things under wraps.

Just days after the model and husband Justin Ervin broke the news of their upcoming arrival — who will be the couple’s first child — last Wednesday, Graham has shared a photo of her nude, pregnant body on Instagram.

“Same same but a little different,” the body-positive star commented of her revealing pic, which proudly highlights her curves and stretch marks in all their glory.
