Model Ashley Graham celebrated her ninth wedding anniversary with husband Justin Ervin this week, and she used the moment to make a special announcement: They're having a baby!
Graham shared the happy news in an Instagram video that shows Ervin placing a hand on her belly before the two of them share a kiss. In the caption, she explained that they were expecting their first child.
"Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life," Graham wrote. "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! "
Graham and Ervin reportedly met at church in New York City. They’ve often given people glimpses into married life on social media, and, in interviews, Graham has talked about the sweet way they got engaged. Speaking to BAZAAR Bride, she explained that in their first year together, she and Ervin had been making a web series on their stoop in Brooklyn called “The Justin and Ashley Show.” In one of the episodes, Ervin pulled out a ring and asked her to marry him.
Ervin also went on Instagram to commemorate their longtime union and reveled in the baby announcement. He shared multiple photos of him and Graham together over the years, leading with one of them holding a sonogram.
“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...” he wrote, referencing the baby.
Graham signed hers off with a heartfelt declaration: "Life is about to get even better," she said.
