If you look up “Mom Goals” in the dictionary, there’s a good chance you’ll see Ashley Graham‘s name. It’s only been a month since the model entered the beautiful world of motherhood and already she’s proving she’s got what it takes — and then some. On Friday night, the 32-year-old took to her Instagram page to prove that being a new mom can certainly be unpredictable when her newborn son Isaac experienced a diaper blowout in the middle of a Staples store.
“Sh💩t just got real!” she wrote alongside a photo of herself changing her son on the floor of the department store. “First diaper blow up while running errands with no restroom in sight! Thank God I remembered to put the changing mat in the diaper bag!!!”
The new mom quickly received praise and reinforcement in the comments for her relatable move. Reality star Jenni “JWoww” Farley, who has two kids of her own, wrote, “I know that feeling 😂😂 gotta do what u gotta do 👏” while comedian and new mom Amy Schumer added, “That’s a Queen right there.”
This isn’t the first time Ashley has gotten real about motherhood. Just weeks ago, she shared a photo on the social media platform of herself sipping coffee at a coffee shop while simultaneously breastfeeding her son. Hey, he needs to eat, doesn’t he?
And it’s not just taking care of her bundle of joy that she’s candid about — but postpartum recovery. The model was praised back in January when she shed light on the messy truth behind what happens to our bodies after birth. “After all these years in fashion I never could’ve guessed that disposable underwear would be my favorite piece of clothing but here we are!” she shared alongside a photo of herself in mesh underwear with her peri bottles in full display. “No one talks about the recovery and healing (yes even the messy parts) new moms go through. I wanted to show you guys that it’s not all rainbows and butterflies!”

Raise your hand if you didn’t know you’d be changing your own diapers too🙋🏻♀️ After all these years in fashion I never could’ve guessed that disposable underwear would be my favorite piece of clothing but here we are! No one talks about the recovery and healing (yes even the messy parts) new moms go through. I wanted to show you guys that it’s not all rainbows and butterflies! It’s been tough, but my friend Chelsea @cmrh and ceo at @fridamom is making waves and starting honest conversations. It’s unbelievable the obstacles we still face talking about what women really go through. All their stuff she sent me has been a life saver.
Props to Ashley for keeping it real, as always.
