Ashley Graham has learned to ''function without sleep'' since becoming a mother.

The 32-year-old model gave birth to her son Isaac on January 18, and despite the demands of parenthood, Ashley is loving the challenge of raising her son.

The brunette beauty - who has been married to Justin Ervin since 2011 - said: ''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.''

Ashley has been in lockdown in recent months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But the situation has ensured she's been able to spend quality time at home with her son and her husband.

She told Harper's Bazaar UK magazine: ''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.''

Ashley also predicted that once the world emerges from the health crisis, society will ''have a deeper respect for patience and kindness and gratitude. And I really want to be that role model for my son.''

Meanwhile, Ashley previously admitted she only started to feel like herself again in April.

The model confessed it took her around three months to rediscover her old self after giving birth.

Alongside a workout video on Instagram, she wrote: ''13 weeks postpartum and I'm starting to sort of feel like myself again after giving birth.

''New mamas - how many weeks postpartum are you? What are you doing to feel like yourself again? (sic)''
