Ashley Graham's Stretch Marks Will Change Your Mind About Yours

The model recently revealed that she is pregnant with her husband of nine years' baby.

"Same, same but a little different."

Throughout her career both as a model and an activist, Ashley Graham's name has grown synonymous with body positivity. 

And even while she's currently pregnant with her first child, she continues to advocate for embracing and celebrating all body types.

Last week, the model announced the news of her pregnancy by way of a sweet Instagram post.

Taking to Instagram again mere days later, she followed up the news with a picture of her naked body, showing off her stretch marks. "Same, same but a little different," she wrote.

In the photo, she is covering her breast with her hand and her face is not seen. Instead, the image focuses on her stretch marks and folds of skin across her thigh and waist – all the features you see in a "real body," one fan wrote.

The comments on the picture were overwhelmingly positive, with fans praising Graham for publicly representing what it's like to be a plus-sized woman experiencing pregnancy.
