Everyone knows Ashley Graham as the confident supermodel who was able to break major fashion barriers.
Her curves have graced the covers of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and Vogue. She started her own swimsuit line. She scored a television-hosting gig, and she even wrote a top-selling memoir.
But before her name was synonymous with international success, Graham was an impressionable young woman who struggled to love and accept her body.
Luckily she had her supportive mother, Linda, to serve as her guide on her journey to body confidence.
Graham has always credited her mother for helping her find value in her size.
Last month, Graham revealed that her mother's body positivity is what kept her going when she struggled to find work in an exclusive industry.
"I think I hit bottom around 18," Graham told V Magazine. "I was disgusted with myself and told my mom I was coming home. And she told me, 'No, you're not, because you told me that this was what you wanted and I know you're supposed to do this. It doesn't matter what you think about your body, because your body is supposed to change somebody's life.'"
To commemorate Graham's progress, the pair recently decided to pose for an Instagram photo in swimsuits — proudly showing off their curvy frames.
"Bring your Mama to work day!" Graham jokingly captioned the adorable snapshot.
Like mother, like daughter.
Everyone deserves to grow up in an environment where they're reminded that size doesn't determine a person's worth — and judging by her daughter's Instagram posts, Mama Graham did a great job.
Confidence clearly runs in the family.
