Ashley Graham is embracing her latest role: mama.

Hours after introducing her baby son, Isaac Menelik Giovanni Ervin, on her Pretty Big Deal podcast, the new mom has shared an intimate new photo of her family.

The body-positive model is pictured breastfeeding the newborn, who was born on Jan. 18 in a home birth, while proud husband Justin Ervin protectively cradles the infant’s head. Isaac is the first child for the longtime couple, who will celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary this year.

As she mentioned on her podcast, Graham told Ervin “now we’re family forever” after giving birth.

“I have so many reasons to be grateful; all of the love and support from this amazing community, an incredible husband and a beautiful baby who has opened my eyes to just how amazing this world really is,” she added in her caption.

Isaac’s official Instagram debut was received with a flood of heartfelt comments from friends and fans, many of whom praised Graham for nursing in the photo.

“Thank you for posting real mama photos,” read one comment. “I wish I had seen this before my first. Beautiful!”

“YESSSSS MAMA!” added a follower. “That liquid gold.”

“What a goddess — he’s perfect, Mama. And way to go using your platform to normalize breastfeeding — plus-size breastfeeding at that!” another fan wrote.

Graham took time out from her hectic new mother schedule to respond to commenters’ requests for nursing bra recommendations. The model revealed that she’s wearing one from Amazon in size XXL.
