Ashley Graham has been photographed by her husband Justin Ervin at her childhood home for a Harper’s Bazaar UK cover feature.

And the pictures are pretty stunning.

The model, who gave birth to son Isaac five months ago, is currently under lockdown in Nebraska.

Speaking to the magazine about her home birth, she said: ‘Justin wanted to be as helpful as possible, and the midwife told him: “There’s nothing you can do, nothing!”

‘I was in the pool, and I looked over to see him in the kitchen cutting up meat and adding seasoning, because it was all he could do…’

The star also opened up about leaving New York for Nebraska due to the coronavirus outbreak.

‘She [Ashley’s mother] talked us into it. She said, “It’s 20 hours, let’s just go and I’ll drive all the way.’’

‘I thought we’d only be away a couple of weeks. Justin had just made a lamb roast, and he said, “We’re not throwing this away”, so we put it in the back of the car and that was what we ate on the trip.’

Ashley added: ‘We’ve figured out how to shoot my podcast, Pretty Big Deal, remotely. But I’m also handling newborn stuff every day. The good thing is if I tilt my computer screen upwards, I can feed the baby without anybody seeing.’

And that’s all after Ashley shared a powerful photo of herself giving birth for International Women’s Day this year.

In a photo uploaded to Instagram, Ashley can be seen with her mouth open, seemingly screaming, clearly mustering all the strength she had to get through the labour.

‘This is the face of my greatest strength,’ she wrote alongside the incredibly poignant snap. The greatest pain I’ve ever known and the greatest accomplishment that I’ve ever achieved.’

She continued: ‘On this International Women’s Day understand that despite whatever pain or trial we have all experienced as women, we are also strong, powerful and capable of accomplishing greatness.’
