We're hyperventilating! World-famous supermodel Ashley Graham has just announced on Instagram that she's expecting her first child with long term-husband Justin Ervin, and to be quite honest it feels like Christmas came early. Ashley revealed all in an emotional Instagram post celebrating her ninth year married to the handsome cinematographer.  

In the video uploaded to her social media page, Ashley stands next to hubby Justin, who has his hands placed over her growing baby bump. But Ashley's bright green dress isn't the only beautiful thing about the video – the way the pair announced that they're expecting is absolutely perfect. At first only their upper torsos are in shot, but after jokingly bickering about the positioning of the camera they zoom out revealing Ashley's bump, and both exclaim "Surprise!". Someone pass the tissues.

Justin's caption said: "To my forever love and my daily inspiration. Happy anniversary @ashleygraham. These 9 years have played out like a lifetime. I guess it’s because my life really started once you came into it. Now that we’ve made a life together, let’s make a life together. I love you and I love us. All of us..."
