AceShowbiz - Ashley Graham and her husband Justin Ervin are expecting their first child together after being married for nine years. The plus-size model dropped the baby news on Wednesday, August 14 as they celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary.
The 31-year-old posted a video of her and Justin with a background of lusty trees. They jokingly bickered about the camera angle before the camera panned to show Ashley's burgeoning baby bump. "Surprise!" she said before they kissed, as Justin caressed her baby bump.
Ashley added in the caption of the clip, "Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life. 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! Happy anniversary, @mrjustinervin. Life is about to get even better."
Justin also shared their photo from the same location. In the image, he planted a kiss on his wife's cheek while holding a sonogram picture. "To my forever love and my daily inspiration. Happy anniversary @ashleygraham," he wrote in the caption. "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..."
The couple has been showered with congratulatory messages from their friends, including celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres and Reese Witherspoon. Ellen wrote in the comment section of Ashley's post, "Congratulations! We're all so happy for you. I hope you're feeling loved, and pampered, and happy, and fearless."
Reese chimed in, "Wow!! So happy for you both." Steve Harvey's step-daughter Lori Harvey added, "I'm literally crying right now omg I'm so happy for you guys!!!!!!!" Fellow model Lily Aldridge also expressed her excitement, "Screaming!!! I'm so happy for you guys!! Congratulations."
Ashley and Justin, a videographer, met at church in 2009. They tied the knot a year later.
