Ashley Graham shares raw, unedited photo of postpartum body one year after giving birth to twins

If there’s one celebrity we can count on to keep it real it’s Ashley Graham.

The mother of three recently took to Instagram and shared a photo of herself squeezing her bare stomach. While she presented the image without comment, plenty of people chimed in.

“I look at you and see such a beautiful woman. Thank you for showing this, after three children I look the same. Thank you for helping me see that I am beautiful too. ❤️❤️” one person wrote.

“I admire u. U make me feel confident about being normal,” wrote another.

Graham, 35, shared the photo of her postpartum body just over a year after she gave birth to twins Malachi and Roman.

She also has a three-year-old son Isaac who was born in 2020.

The plus-size model is known for body positivity advocacy and sharing what many consider to be “real” photos on social media.


She has been praised for posting photos of cellulite, and her most recent photo is no different.

But even she struggles with body image.

In 2022, she wrote an essay for Glamour where she went into detail about learning how to love her postpartum body.

“I am the person who has been shouting from the rooftops to you all, ‘Love the skin you’re in,’” Graham wrote. “Yet for me, the births of my three children threw a lot of that out the window.” 

After her first son was born she “obsessed” over 20 pounds she could not lose and then she found herself crying over stretch marks.

“I tried to brush it off and would say to myself, ‘Girl, you still fine, who cares.'”

And while she’s come a long ways since the days, weeks, and months following the birth of her first child, there are still days when she struggles.

“Because even as a body advocate, I’ve learned it’s okay if the journey to love the skin you’re in is more complex than you could ever have imagined,” Graham wrote. “Even now, if I’m completely honest, I go in waves. I am still not entirely comfortable in my body, no matter my own body positivity advocacy.”

Ashley Graham is one of the most honest advocates there is. I’m so glad she shared this photo because it helps others realize you don’t have to be skinny to be beautiful.
