Ashley is truly a girl's girl and has always made it her mission to make women feel beautiful and comfortable in their own skin!

Her bathing suit line Swim Suits For All is designed with all bodies in mind and has received praise from its millions of fans around the world.

It's truly such a fabulous line if you haven't checked it out already!

Motherhood has opened a new facet of Ashely's body positive activism, and fans couldn't be more appreciative!

Now, Ashley is sharing some new photos from her latest bikini line photoshoot and is showing off her beautiful pregnancy stretch marks.

"Some things I love: a cute bathing suit and a backyard shoot with the family!" Ashley wrote, speaking about photographer hubby Justin Ervin.

"We’ve had such great time making the most of this summer in Nebraska and these suits have me feeling great for my first summer as a mommy!"

Speaking with *People* magazine, Ashley explained her decision to leave her stomach Photoshop-free.

"There's always a question of what do you want us to retouch, and what do you want us to take out?" Ashley explained "And I said, 'Nothing,’ except from a clamp holding up the DIY backdrop."

"I want everybody to know genuinely... I want people to see who I am because everybody has a story."

When asked why she chose to leave her body unedited, Ashley said she wanted women everywhere to relate to her changing body and be reminded that it's totally okay and totally normal.

"A lot of women I speak to have image issues, body issues around confidence," Ashley explained.

"I want them to understand that we all have things that society has told us to cover up and why do we need to do that? So here I am with mine out and about and proud."

"The thing about working with Swimsuits For All is that I've always been able to design swimsuits that I want to wear and swimsuits that I'm really comfortable in," Ashley continued.

"Now with a new postpartum body, I thought that things were going to feel different, and that they were going to look different, and they do, but it's a new found joy in that."

"It looks so simple and beautiful, but powerful. I've got more weight on me. I have stretch marks, and in the beginning, I really had to have a lot of conversations with myself and tell myself, 'OK, new body, new mindset.''

"But after this photo shoot, I felt so empowered because I was like, 'Yes. I look good. I feel good."

This campaign shoot comes after her photographer hubby shot her *Harper's Bazaar UK* cover in the same backyard. A supermodel and photographer?! Now that's a match made in heaven!

"Justin and I were already in a rhythm of shooting together in quarantine," Ashley explained, adding that she feels comfortable doing her own hair and makeup for shoots now!

When asked where the fashion industry will go from here, Ashley replied she wasn't too sure.

As for quarantine, the supermodel said it has been "such a blessing" for her in many ways.

"I feel like I've had more time with Isaac (her son) and [at] home than I ever would have had. And that really is a silver lining for me."
