Ashley announced that she was expecting twins a few months later with a video of her learning the news at the doctor’s office.
‘Are you serious? Will we have three children? she said, laughing hysterically during her ultrasound appointment.
‘You are making fun of me!’ Justin said as he looked at the monitor in disbelief.
The video also revealed the special moment where Ashley and Justin find out they are waiting.
Oh baby! Graham previously said that motherhood made her a ‘smoother and more patient’ person.
Further assuring themselves, the couple took two separate pregnancy tests before celebrating the news.
“There it is,” she says before Ashley gleefully covers her mouth, giggles, and kisses her man.
Ashley previously said that welcoming her first child just before the lockdown meant she could enjoy “extended maternity leave.”
“I got an extended maternity leave that I never thought I’d get, so that was really the bright side of it all,” Ashley told Entertainment Tonight last year. “I had eight months in a row with him, that Justin and I were able to spend with him, so he was so beautiful.”
She also said that motherhood made her a ‘softer and more patient’ person.
‘I think somehow [motherhood] It has made me softer and more patient; not only with the world, but with myself ”, she said. “I am beginning to see things with the eyes of a young child and not mine, so it can be difficult at times. You have lived a long life and now you have to see him with such innocent and pure eyes. They just look different. They are more fun, innocent and beautiful. ‘
