The post comes after the busy mom opened about her thinning hair since giving birth to her twins Malachi and Roman 11 months ago.

‘I mean at least it’s growing,’ she wrote next to a carousel of photos showing off the wisps that had begun to grow around her face in an Instagram post on Wednesday in a variety of hair styles.

Fans who have been going through something similar expressed sympathy.
One wrote, ‘Omg, I thought I am the only one looking like this. I feel so much better now, thank you for being so transparent with your postpartum journey’
Another made an appreciative comment, ‘This post is why I love you! Please keep normalizing the horrifying things that happen to us mothers when we literally give up our life to welcome our babes into the world! No one ever tells you this stuff and it’s mortifying when it happens! Keep being you wonder woman!’

Pose actress Leyna Bloom reached out with, ‘Girl I have the same problem.’
The Sports Illustrated model has been very open about her post-partum experience.
‘Raise your hand if you didn’t know you’d be changing your own diapers too…No one talks about the recovery and healing (yes even the messy parts) new moms go through. I wanted to show you guys that it’s not all rainbows and butterflies!’
Wonder Woman: Many of the model’s fans wrote appreciatively in the comments section after her post, including, ”This post is why I love you… No one ever tells you this stuff and it’s mortifying when it happens! Keep being you wonder woman!’
Ashley tackled the changes that take place in a woman’s body during and after pregnancy in an essay for Glamor in May, writing, ‘I am still not entirely comfortable in my body, no matter my own body positivity advocacy. There are days where 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, and I think, “God why did you have to go up above my belly button? I’m a lingerie model for God’s sake. This is not what lingerie models look like.” But then I remind myself, “Well, I’ve never been the norm of what a typical lingerie model looks like.”‘
