Ashley Graham Talks About Her Pubic Hair in Family Group Chat

There appears to be no topic off-limits in model Ashley Graham's family. In a group text message, the America's Next Top Model judge discussed her pubic hair—or, rather, the lack of it.

Graham, 30, is set to be featured in the upcoming Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. She has already previewed images from the shoot with her 6.3 million Instagram followers. In doing so, she shared a photo of a text exchange with her mother, sister and husband, Justin Ervin.

In the conversation, Ervin shared a photo from Graham's Sports Illustrated shoot. In it, the model is pulling down the front of her bikini bottoms to reveal minimal pubic hair. As a joke, her husband decided to scribble hair onto her private area. According to a screenshot published in People magazine, he wrote: "Needs a bush to make this photo better." Graham responded: "You wish your bush looked like mine."

Graham's sister, Abigail, and her mother chimed in, with details of their own private parts. Abigail claimed to have "a big bush;" her mother wrote that she has "no bush and it's divine," and they should all "be jealous."

Graham has been candid about her pubic hair before, telling Cosmopolitan magazine in June 2017: "I have a full bush. Period. It's about your preference and your partner’s preference." Well, not anymore.

Graham rose to fame as a plus-size model, and quickly became a prominent figure in the booming body positivity movement. In her debut book, A New Model, she intended to show "what confidence, beauty & power really look like." She also talked about the importance of body acceptance through the birth of Alda (part of IMG Modles), a modeling agency geared toward curvier women.

"What I want is for fashion to just keep pushing the boundaries," Graham told Vogue magazine in May 2017. "Then hopefully photographers and art directors and editors are going to be open to the idea of booking a curvy girl not because she’s curvy but because she’s going to be right for the story."
