Graham continued to keep fans updated throughout her pregnancy, from detailing her birth plan and cravings to proudly displaying her stretch marks.
“I think it’s important to normalize every type of body. I normalized it before I was pregnant, I’m going to normalize it while I’m pregnant,” she told Access Hollywood in October. “I think that every body is beautiful and I think that that’s exactly what I’m continuing to preach. My tiger stripes are coming in and that’s, like, such a great conversation to have with other mommies because it’s just inevitable to get stretch marks when you’re pregnant, especially the second time around with twins.”
During a February interview with E! News’ Daily Pop, Graham shared what she’s learned since becoming a mom, including “a lot about patience, how selfless being a parent is, and truly, how I don’t really need that much space to operate during the day.”
The body-positivity icon also discussed how she uses her platform to slam expectations put on women after they gave birth. “I think the postpartum snapback is really B.S.,” Graham said. “I think it’s an unattainable reality for most women and it’s been an unattainable reality for myself.”
