After posing for Sports Illustrated in 2016, Ashley Graham, exploded onto the modeling world and defied all of the societal expectations for models’ body type. Ever since, Graham has been one of the most successful models in the world.

In August, Graham announced she was expecting her first child with husband of nine years, Justin Ervin. Over the last few months, Graham has been seen posting bikini pictures and videos enjoying her pregnancy and taking time for herself.

This week, Graham posted a selfie of herself in front of a flowered tree in Big Sur, California, captioning it, “I’ve been in California for three weeks but I have to say I’m ready for sweater weather.” Graham later posted a video of herself cradling her baby bump and in the video Graham said, “So what I wanted to say in this Instagram post, was rock-a-by baby in the tree tops. How fitting!” She can be seen laying in a hammock on a patio that is amongst the trees. Graham captioned the video, “I took a week to disconnect and go off the grid for my babymoon.”

It seems Graham is getting one last hurrah in with her hubby before they enter this new chapter together.  She was staying in the five-star resort, Ventana Big Sur, nestled on 160 acres of forested areas on the Pacific coast. The resort also has scenic ocean views.

Graham obviously enjoyed her time “off the grid” because she furthered her caption by saying, “I didn’t realize how much I needed a break from technology until we completely lost service!!” As successful as she is, especially on social media, and how taxing success can be physically and emotionally it was probably needed for a pregnant Graham.

When she said “off the grid” she really meant it. At least Graham got the proper “babymoon” with her husband and had the chance to enjoy the last few weeks of this chapter in her marriage fully with no distractions.
