AceShowbiz - %cAshley Graham% and husband Justin Ervin have just given us major relationship envy. The 29-year-old model took to her Instagram account on Tuesday, September 5 to share a sweet photo of her sharing a passionate kiss with her husband of seven years in a swimming pool.
Ashley flaunted her curves in a black, two-piece swimming suit. She was carried by her videographer hubby, who went shirtless, as they smooched in the pool. The plus-size model let the picture speak for itself as she said that there's "no caption necessary," adding the hashtag #marriedlife.
Ashley and Justin first met at a church in 2009. They got married one year later. Though the pair are happily married now, they were hit by a few rocky moments before tying the knot. In her book "A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty and Power Really Look Like" released earlier this year, the model opened up about how her family initially didn't accept their interracial marriage.
"I brought Justin home to Nebraska. Now, I should probably mention that Justin is black, and that I didn't grow up around many black people," she wrote in her book. "The sum total of what I learned about African American culture in school was Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and the Underground Railroad."
When introducing Justin to her grandmother, she was shocked by her grandma's reaction to her future husband. "I never told Justin any of this, and I never told my grandparents that the man I was bringing home was black. I naively hoped everyone would be colorblind," she shared. "When my grandparents met Justin, my grandmother was cordial but cold."
Ashley added that "when it came time for them to leave, my grandparents didn't even acknowledge him. Instead my grandmother looked me in the eye, with Justin standing behind me, and said, 'Tell that guy I said goodbye.' "
