Ashley Graham Reveals Meaning behind Son's Names as She Introduces Him in YouTube Video with Husband Justin Ervin

Ashley Graham is a happy mother as she takes to social media alongside her husband to reveal her newborn son's name.

Successful model, Ashley Graham and her husband, Justin Ervin, have revealed the name of their newborn son, who was born on January 18, 2020. 

He was named Isaac Menelik Giovanni Ervin. The couple made the revelation via a podcast titled, "Pretty Big Deal." On the podcast, the couple discussed the circumstances, which led them to pick out the unique names.

Justin Ervin stated that he had always wanted a son named Isaac since he was in middle school —"I knew it was going to be Isaac, from here until then," Ervin said. 

Graham could find no fault with the name, and she promptly fell in love with the moniker. According to Ervin, Menelik is a name that originates from Ethiopia. 

It reportedly means "son of the wise." The moniker is one the couple stumbled on while on a Christmas vacation. 

The name Giovanni on the other hand was mentioned by a friend of the family while they were on vacation to the Amalfi Coast.

Before the broadcast of the video via Ashley Graham's youtube podcast, the proud mother took to Instagram to post two beautiful shots of her child's hand. 

The couple both agreed on the name because they both had grandparents who bore the name "John" and Ervin has an Italian background. 

Graham also took the opportunity to speak about the reason she chose to give birth at her home in Brooklyn instead of a hospital. She said,

"Having decided to have the birth here, at our house, gave me so much clarity, if I would have had the birth at the hospital, I think anxiety would have been through the roof."

Even though she admitted to staying at home for the delivery to avoid anxiety, things did not pan out totally in their favor as they went ahead to retell the tale of Graham's labor comically.

The video also featured baby Isaac as the microphone picked up the little sounds he made while his parents spoke.

Before the broadcast of the video via Ashley Graham's youtube podcast, the proud mother took to Instagram to post two beautiful shots of her child's hand. 

The photos captured the moment perfectly as little Isaac's hand delicately clutched his parent's. Marie Constantinesco reportedly took the shot. The heartwarming post came with an equally emotional caption: 

"At 6:00 PM on 01/18/2020, we welcomed 7lbs 5oz of love into our world. Meeting our son has made our hearts incredibly full, and we can't wait to introduce him to you."

Ervin and Graham got married in 2010 after he proposed to her while they filmed episodes of a series titled "The Justin and Ashley Show."

A show reportedly shot all on a web-cam, while sitting on their terrace in Brooklyn. The Ervins are surely one lovely family.
