Ashley Graham appears to be transitioning beautifully into the role of mother as she keeps her 10.5 million Instagram followers up-to-date on her newborn son Isaac's developments. She has already posted several photos of the boy -- who was born on January 18 -- to her social media account, along with captions reflecting on life as a mom.
On Sunday, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model took to the photo-sharing site to let her fans see a more intimate side of having a baby. She was photographed breastfeeding her tiny son, who appeared to be engulfed in a yellow outfit while cradled in his mom's lap.
In the photo, Ashley rested cross-legged on her messy bed with her back against a tower of pillows. As she sat in the lower right-hand side of the frame, the morning light shone through giant windows, reflected on the wall behind her. The model wore a black nursing bra and had her long, brunette tresses twisted up into a bun at the top of her head. She focused on her phone while Isaac was eating, seemingly not wearing any makeup on her face.
In the caption of the sweet snap, Ashley told her followers that it's a multitasking Sunday, referring to breastfeeding and working on her phone at the same time.Many of the Instagram sensation's admirers who are also fellow moms could relate to her caption, responding directly to it in the comments section of the post.
"4 kids nursed them all for 2 years each. It's amazing what you can do with one hand," one user wrote.
The photo received plenty of love from the model's millions of followers, earning more than 750,000 likes and nearly 4,000 comments on the first day of being posted.
While Ashley got messages complimenting her on her new journey as a mom and appreciating her openness, there were also a few remarks from social media users who were not impressed with her admission that she breastfeeds and works at the same time.
"You should pay attention to your child when you feed him. It should be an intimate moment. Mobile destroys it," one follower chided.
However, Ashley received more comments from fans relating to her experience as a mother and the difficulties that come from managing life and raising a baby at the same time than from those shaming her.
"You are the prettiest mama I have ever seen!!!," a follower wrote.
The new mama announced the birth of her son on Instagram in a sweet black-and-white photo that featured Ashley holding Isaac's tiny hand.
