Ashley Graham tandem breastfeeds twin sons in ‘tired’ selfie

Ashley Graham breastfeeds her twins in tandem.

“Tired,” the 34-year-old model wrote in a new Instagram selfie grooming both Malachi and Roman. “But we’re here.”

Former *NSYNC member Lance Bass took to the social media upload to tell Graham she’s “killing the mother game,” while “Even Stevens” alumnus Christy Carlson Romano wrote: “Go mama go!”

Actress Freida Pinto, for her part, called Graham her “hero.”

The host of “American Beauty Star,” who is also the mother of 2-year-old son Isaac with husband Justin Ervin, nearly died in January giving birth to her twin sons.

The author of “A New Model” alluded to the harrowing ordeal in her announcement.

“I’m taking time to heal and connect with my husband and three boys, but I can’t wait to share more with you,” she wrote via Instagram at the time.

Four months later, Graham described her home birth experience in an essay for Glamour.

“I blacked out,” the Nebraska resident wrote in May. “When I finally came to…I looked around the room, saw blood literally everywhere and let out this deep, visceral scream – an emotional release from the chaos I had just experienced.”

Graham went on to say she couldn’t leave her home for nearly two months, noting, “I’m a warrior for carrying and giving birth to my babies, for surviving [a] bleeding, because I was a mother to my three boys.”

When the “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit” model became a mother in January 2020, breastfeeding was “really difficult” for her.

“A lactation consultant came to help me because the first few days my nipples were super bled and it hurt,” she told her Instagram followers in March 2020.

“Part of the reason was I just shoved my chest into Isaac’s mouth,” she explained at the time. “Apparently there is a technique my lactation consultant taught me.”

Graham wished other new moms “good luck” in the candid video.
