Ashley Graham shared her experiences of sex after childbirth in a candid conversation with People (opens in new tab), nine months after she and husband Justin Ervin welcomed son Isaac. "A lot of women have asked me, 'Were you afraid to have sex again?' Not at all, and the reason I wasn't was because I know my vagina was made to have a baby and to push it out, and I knew it was going to go right back [to what it was]," Graham said.
"Everything's still in there, it all feels the same, the furniture is just probably rearranged," she added.
Graham and Ervin time sex around Isaac's naps, the supermodel said. "When you have a newborn, they usually sleep for a couple of hours, so we'll put him in the bassinet on the other side of the room and get it going," she explained.

Graham spoke about how she and Ervin take time for their relationship as new parents, sharing that Thursdays are their date nights. "We'll take a walk, go to dinner, take a drive," she said. "That has been something that's been really great, because 24/7 it's about Isaac and we're both working parents now, so we need that extra time for ourselves that we used to have all the time."
"I feel like I'm now a working-mom extraordinaire," she continued. "I was very organized before, but now I'm even more organized—and when I say organized, I mean I have a Mary Poppins bag that has everything in it, including my breast pump that looks like a mini robot that comes with me."
