She gave birth to her first son, Isaac, in January 2020 at home in Brooklyn, before relocating to her childhood home in Nebraska during lockdown. “I would get pregnant yesterday if I could,” she says candidly—revealing that her and husband Justin Ervin are trying for number two.
Graham, who moved to New York to pursue modeling at 17-years-old, recalls her experiences of being told she wouldn’t make it. She says of the time, “I didn’t know how to cook for myself; I didn’t know how to take care of myself. That’s when I got my freshman 30, and my weight skyrocketed. My self-esteem plummeted, and I had my agents telling me if you don’t lose weight, then you’re not going to work. The lowest part of realizing that I didn’t get a job because I was ‘too fat’ actually gave me the courage and the ambition to go and fill a void in an industry.”
