Pregnant Ashley Graham faced a lighting round of questions on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, and when the model and lingerie guru was asked by Ellen whether she was having a boy or a girl, Ashley blurted out: “A boy!”
Ashley has been proudly showing off her pregnancy since she announced in August that she and her husband were expecting a baby — the couple’s first. Until now, the couple hasn’t revealed the gender. But as Ellen was peppering Ashley with questions about her most embarrassing wardrobe malfunction (her pants split at the Savage X Fenty show) and the most famous person she has been naked in front of (everybody), she appeared to slip up and reveal her baby’s gender.
“I’m going to be a mommy to a boy. I’m having a boy,” Ashley exclaimed.
Ashley said that she is expecting her baby in January, and she is getting so big that she is done traveling for the time being. In fact, her appearance on Ellen was her last trip on an airplane, she said. Ashley also talked about how she is exhausted all the time, but instead of napping — because she doesn’t have time — she gets in a quick workout. She says she gets more energy after getting her heart rate up.
Ashley also spoke about “pregnancy brain.” She said that last time she was getting glammed up, she sent photos of the process to the wrong phone number. The stranger on the other end, in response, sent a thumbs-up emoji.
At that point in the show, Ashley talked about her podcast, Pretty Big Deal, in which she has a rapid-fire lightning round of questions for her guests. The model said that she was excited to have the tables turned on her and gamely launched right into the interrogation.
Ashley and her husband, filmmaker Justin Ervin, married in 2010. They revealed on August 14 in an Instagram post that they were ready to welcome a third person into their family. In the video, the couple faced the camera as it panned out to reveal Ashley’s growing bump.
“Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life. It has been the best journey with my favorite person in the world!” she captioned the post. “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.”
She finished the message with a kissy face emoji. The sweet post garnered over 7 million views.
