It may be Ashley Graham’s first pregnancy, but the model is handling it like a pro with refreshing honesty about the ways that her body is changing and how she’s keeping up.

The 31-year-old announced her pregnancy back in August, while she and husband Justin Irvine were celebrating their nine-year wedding anniversary. Ever since, Graham has been keeping her Instagram followers up to date with her workouts, evolving style and even her growing body. In a video posted to her social media on Monday night, the mom-to-be shared an up-close video of her bump — stretch marks and all.

“Getting bigger and bigger and trying to embrace my new body everyday,” Graham wrote. “It’s a journey and I’m so thankful to have such a supportive community.”

That supportive community is something that Graham garnered through being so open about the physical changes that come with pregnancy. In mid-August, she posted a nude photo of her pregnant body, which inspired other women to do the same. Now, people are sharing even more support for her growing body after the recent update.

“One of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. Even more to love!” one wrote. Another commented, “The mommy body is such a gift!”
