Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life. It has been the best journey with my favorite person in the world! Today, we are feeling so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate with our GROWING FAMILY! Happy anniversary, @mrjustinervin ❤️ Life is about to get even better. 😘
The runway stunner previously opened up about motherhood in an interview published in June, where she explained that the topic of race is something she wants to talk openly about with her future kids.
“I want to know as much as I can as a white woman who is going to be raising black children,” she told Allure. “We’re going to have to have that conversation of ‘Mommy’s white, Daddy’s black,’ and I want to be prepared.”
Ashley also stressed how important it is to “read books, have conversations and educate yourself.” While the body positive activist spoke of motherhood during the interview, she did note at the time that kids were “just too far down the road for me to even think about.”
The model also discussed how her own mother helped her grow up to be a confident young girl in her autobiography, “A New Model.”
In the book, she talks about how our parents are our first role models. Ashley goes on to explain that there needs to be more dialogue between parents and children when it comes to body image, so confidence can be instilled in kids at a young age
. We have no doubt she’ll take that course of action when her little one enters the world!
Ashley and Justin, who met at church in New York City, will celebrate their 10-year wedding anniversary in August 2020.
Justin popped the question in 2009 with a custom diamond ring.
