Ashley Graham doesn’t hold anything back. The model is known for baring it all loudly and proudly and encouraging others to do the same. Graham has celebrated her body at every stage, and her current stage just happens to be the third trimester of pregnancy.

Graham uses her platform to advocate for body-positivity, and this hasn’t changed during her first pregnancy. In an intimate Instagram video, Graham panned across her ever-changing pregnant body, ending the clip with a big smile.

Fellow celebrities and fans alike have applauded Graham for being so vulnerable on social media. Her unfiltered, just plain real demeanor is not only refreshing to see online, but it’s changing the way women feel about themselves.

Graham’s candor is showing women—pregnant or not—that every body is beautiful.

Back in August, Graham posted a similar image of her clearly unfiltered, naked pregnancy body—stretch marks and all. She captioned the photo, “same same but a little different.”

Graham is expecting her first child with her husband of nine years, Justin Ervin. The couple announced the news of their growing family with a giddy video on Instagram.

We love Graham’s continued vulnerability and promotion of body positivity, and we plan on looking to her for self-love inspiration throughout the rest of her pregnancy and beyond.
