The model gave birth to her son Isaac on January 18, and despite the demands of parenthood, Ashely is loving the challenge of raising him.

“I actually feel really good. I don’t know what it is, mother resilience? I’ve learnt that I can function without sleep – I didn’t know that,” she told Harper’s Bazaar UK.

Ashley has been in lockdown in recent months due to the global health crisis, but the situation has ensured she’s been able to spend quality time at home with her son and husband Justin Ervin.

“The silver lining is having all of these incredible, special moments with Isaac, and the nostalgia of being with my son in the home I grew up in. I’ve had time to focus, and I’m so grateful,” she adds.
