“I don’t know anything about boys, so I’m so excited,” the first-time mother admits in the magazine.
And in what is now practically common practice in fashion magazines, Graham, 32 stripped down to show off her growing baby bump, a la Demi Moore in 1991, save for an elegant white shirt covering her breasts, while husband and baby daddy Justin Ervin caresses her.
“She owed me a boy,” Ervin, 31, joked. “What with all of this wonderful, divine, feminine energy she has around her 24/7, I want a little sidekick.”
Graham has never been one to shy away from showing off her sexy curves, but admits it was hard to remain positive as her body began changing.
“I was gaining weight rapidly, and I felt alone," she recalled. “I’ve always had control over my body – when everyone else wanted to dictate what it should be, I took full control over it – but I had this life inside of me saying, It’s not yours anymore, it’s mine. And you have to just succumb.”
“The one piece of advice that my stylist, Jordan Foster, gave me was, ‘make pregnant friends,’” she added. “None of my friends were in relationships, let alone pregnant. And now I have nine pregnant friends.”
