Glowing new mum alert: Ashley Graham is lighting up social media with her stunning yet candid picture debuting her twin boys, born one month ago.
Ashley has been in her newborn baby bubble and hasn’t been active on social media since their birth, born at home at an incredible 40 weeks gestation which is quite insane for twins!
She introduces her boys, named Malachi and Roman, with a photo of her breastfeeding one baby and holding the other over her shoulder.
And god, does she ever make it look effortlessly beautiful! You can almost sense the serene, calmness of the shot as she looks down at her feeding twin.
Three under two
The model is already mum to two-year-old Isaac Menelik Giovanni with her husband, Justin Ervin, and admits she still finds it crazy that she is a mum of three now. And three adorable little boys at that!
As she writes on her Instagram post alongside the picture,
Malachi & Roman 🤍 my boys have been the greatest teachers and biggest reminders that I can do hard things. this has not been easy, but it’s so worth it. still can’t believe I have 3 children 🤯 can’t wait to share my birth & postpartum journey with you all soon.”
Twin home birth
Ashley has shared so many stunning pictures throughout her pregnancy and we love them all. She’s photographed her pregnant body from nearly every angle, and purposefully skips all of the filters and editing.
We can’t wait to hear all about her birthing experience (and hopefully a few newborn snaps too).
Although she hasn’t gone into detail, she has explained that she was able to carry her boys to full term (40+ weeks in fact) and that she had them at home.
Justin and I are so excited that our baby boys are here. They were born early this morning at home and are happy and healthy,” Graham wrote on her Instagram Story on January 7th 2022.
“I’m taking some time to heal up and connect with my husband and three boys, but I truly cannot wait to share more with you all. Much love, AG.”
Malachi and Roman
What’s behind the boys’ strong names?
The name Malachi is of Hebrew origin that means messenger Of God while Roman is of Latin origin meaning “citizen of Rome”. Both names are climbing up the popularity charts, especially Roman which has been tipped to be one of the biggest climbers of 2021.
What to read next
Ashley isn’t the only celebrity to welcome twins into the world recently. Nick Cannon and one of his girlfriends (Abby De La Rosa) welcomed twin boys, Zion and Zillion Heir in June 2021.
Nick then welcomed another son, named Zen with a different girlfriend (Alyssa Scott) just 13 days later. Tragically Zen passed away at just five months old.
Nick is now expecting another boy with another girlfriend (Bre Tiesi).
Usain Bolt and his partner, Kasi Bennett also welcomed twins in 2021 – Thunder and Saint Leo Bolt.
