Ashley Graham has suffered from "mom guilt" after returning to work.

The 34-year-old model - who has Isaac, 2, and five-month-old twins Malachi and Roman with husband Justin Ervin -- admits that her return to work hasn't been an easy experience, as she now needs to constantly manage her time.

"How I navigated my return to work after the twins is hard to say, because I didn't jump back into a nine-to-five," Ashley shared.

She continued: "After three months, I started travelling and leaving them for overnights. I definitely had a little mom guilt, but I've been pumping a lot more and having to navigate schedules a lot more."

Ashley likened her time at work to being on "vacation".

"I'm jumping back into work faster than when I did with my firstborn, and I think it's normal. I'm actually so happy when I get to work. It feels like a vacation," she told The Cut.

Last month, Ashley admitted that she's "still not entirely comfortable in [her] body". The model added that she's still struggling to come to terms with her post-pregnancy figure.

"There are days when I look at myself and I say, 'there's nothing you can't handle. There's nothing you can't do.' Then I look at the stretch marks that still exist and will forever exist on my stomach... I'm a lingerie model for God's sake. This is not what lingerie models look like," she said, Bang Showbiz reports.
