Baby news: Ashley Graham is expecting her first child with her husband of nine years, Justin Ervin. And while on Ellen DeGeneres’ show on Thursday, the Vogue modeled revealed the gender of the baby for the first time
Ashley says she feels very pregnant and she flew to LA just for Ellen – it’s her last trip before welcoming the baby.
‘I am feeling good, you know there is no more time for naps so I have been working out between everything,’ she stated.
She then explained that she was exhausted and wanted a nap that day, but then couldn’t because she had to go on air with Ellen.
Ellen laughed over how she lifted weights instead of laying down for a few minutes.

Graham then added she had ‘pregnancy brain.’
She was in glam for two hours and wanted to share the photos she took, but then mistakenly sent them to the wrong person.
The supermodel then talked up the show Fearless that helps regular people. ‘To see people’s lives change before our eyes… ‘ she said before Ellen interrupted her.
She was then asked questions quickly.

Ashley’s celebrity crush is Steve Carell. And her most embarrassing moment was when her pants split in the crotch in the Fenty show.
When asked if she was having a boy or girl she spit it out – she is having a boy – and seemed very excited to break the news.
The star smiled and screamed: ‘I am going to be a mommy to a boy.’
Next Ashley was asked to present a check to a vet who battled breast cancer. Jaime Castillo-Raby embraced Ashley and started to cry. ‘I feel like it light a fire under my b*tt to have so many people supported me, it lifted me out of a fog,’ she said.

While her and her husband, 30, are about to be parents she opened up earlier this year to Elle magazine about they keep the spark alive in their relationship.
‘Have sex all the time,’ she said candidly. ‘Even if you don’t feel like it, just have sex,’ she explained about their relationship.
‘We get snippy, and then if we are having sex, we’re all over each other. For us it’s like, ‘Oh, let’s have sex.’ And then we’re just right back in a great mood.’

She says she met her husband when volunteering at a church event in New York City for an event called Porn Sunday.
Ashley went on to explain it was when ‘ex-porn stars came in and talked about how their life had been changed by church and God.’
‘One Sunday my volunteer position was to stand in the elevator welcoming people, passing out candy and pushing the button to the eighth floor,’ she explained about meeting her now-husband. ‘When two tall men walked in, I didn’t bat an eye. One nudged the other and said, ‘If you don’t talk to her, I will.’ His friend left the elevator, but he stayed on.’
