If you thought you’d never have anything in common with a supermodel, you were wrong. Ashley Graham confirmed her second pregnancy in July 2021—a little over a year after welcoming her first child—and now, Graham and husband Justin Ervin are a proud family of five!

Twin boys—whose names have yet to be released—joined big brother Isaac Ervin on Jan. 7 during a home delivery after Graham shared in a Jan. 6 TikTok video that she “was supposed to give birth 5 days ago.” Throughout her pregnancy, she posted about her birth plan, cravings and even stretch marks.

Known for keeping it real, this wasn’t the first time she’s used her status to draw attention to unrealistic expectations put on women after pregnancy. “I think the postpartum snapback is really B.S.,” Graham said. “I think it’s an unattainable reality for most women and it’s been an unattainable reality for myself.” Girl, preach.

And if you didn’t already love this supermodel for focusing on body positivity and blasting unrealistic expectations on new moms, you can start braiding your friendship bracelet now. She offered up advice to the universe on how to interact with pregnant and new moms in an interview with E! News, “You feel bombarded by unsolicited advice a bit, so I think the best thing to do when talking to anyone who’s pregnant or has just had a baby is, like, make sure they want the advice before you give it.”

You likely didn’t know that this supermodel is who we all wish would move in next door—we didn’t! Graham is exactly the type of girlfriend we all need to navigate the confusing but precious days of pregnancy and early motherhood.

Congrats and welcome to the world, sweet baby!
