Ashley Graham 'can't wait' to return to gym after having baby

Ashley Graham

Ashley Graham "can't wait" to get back in the gym following the birth of her first child.

The model and her husband Justin Ervin welcomed a baby boy named Isaac in January, and since then, she has been documenting her new life as a mother on her Instagram account.

Before and during her pregnancy, Ashley was dedicated to keeping fit and would always carve time out of her schedule to work out, and she recently told her followers she was ready to get back into her exercise routine.

Her trainer Kirk Myers shared throwback footage of her doing a range of exercises on Instagram and she shared a clip of her skipping rope and wrote in the caption, "Cant (sic) wait to get back in the gym!!!!!!!"

The 32-year-old then asked her followers if she should bring back her YouTube fitness series, Thank Bod with Ashley Graham, for her post-pregnancy workouts. It seemed like a popular suggestion, as 90 per cent of her followers clicked on the "Yessss" button to vote and only 10 per cent clicked on "No thanks :(".

Ashley, who gained 50 pounds (23 kilograms) while pregnant with Isaac, told Harper's Bazaar before she gave birth that she wasn't in a hurry to lose the weight straight away.

"It's unfortunate that this 'bounce back' culture exists for new moms," she said. "We just grew a life inside of our bodies for nine months, and then in addition to raising a newborn, there's pressure to lose all of the baby weight so quickly.

"Everyone's postpartum journey is different. My priority will be to make sure that our baby is happy and healthy, and when and if I do decide to lose the baby weight, it'll be on my own terms."
