Ashley Graham shared a personal snap of herself giving birth to mark International Women's Day on Sunday.

The model welcomed a baby boy named Isaac with her husband, director Justin Ervin, back in January.

Taking to Instagram to celebrate "the face of my greatest strength", Ashley opened up about the experience of giving birth alongside a close-up image of her face during labour.

"The greatest pain I've ever known and the greatest accomplishment that I've ever achieved," she wrote in the caption. "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.

"Happy International Women's Day! Let's all celebrate our, and each other's strengths today."

International Women's Day is held annually on 8 March and celebrates women's achievements throughout history worldwide.

Accordingly, the post soon attracted comments from Ashley's celebrity followers.

Amy Schumer wrote, "This pic made me cry," Helena Christensen posted, "Such powers we possess such strength," and Christy Turlington added: "Love this so much."

In recent weeks, the 32-year-old has been praised by fans for candidly documenting her journey as a new mum online, speaking about changes to her body and the challenges of parenting.
