“My greatest strength”
Ashley gave birth to a little boy named Isaac Menelik Giovanni around a month ago, and since then she’s been sharing plenty of snaps from the parenting trenches.
“This is the face of my greatest strength,” the model mum (who has been married to Isaac’s daddy Justin Ervin for nine years) wrote alongside one such photo on Instagram yesterday.
“On this International Women’s Day understand that despite whatever pain or trial we have all experienced as women, we are also strong, powerful and capable of accomplishing greatness.”
“Let’s all celebrate our, and each other’s strengths today,” she summed up.

This is the face of my greatest strength. The greatest pain I’ve ever known and the greatest accomplishment that I’ve ever achieved. On this International Women’s Day understand that despite whatever pain or trial we have all experienced as women, we are also strong, powerful and capable of accomplishing greatness. Happy International Women’s Day! Let’s all celebrate our, and each other’s strengths today.
Anyone who has had a baby will have grappled with feelings of absolute amazement, pondering how they could have grown an entire little person inside them. It really is one of the greatest human superpowers, so we’re not surprised that Ashley’s still coming to terms with her own brilliantly beautiful baby effort.
Keeping up with Ashley
Of course, this is not the first glimpse we’ve had of family life with this high-profile mum.
In case you’re catching up with Ashley’s parenting journey, we’d like to give you a little recap of life since Isaac’s arrival.
1. She’s changed him in the aisle of a giant stationery store because when you gotta go, you really gotta go.
2. She’s pumped milk in the back of an Uber in her quest to maintain supply (and stop her boobs exploding!)
3. She’s shared her recovering body, complete with excellent crop of tiger stripes.
4. She’s introduced young Isaac to cafe culture in one of those early juggle-y outings with a newborn bub.
