Ashley Graham has revealed the sex and due date of her baby for the first time.

On Thursday, the Sports Illustrated model appeared on The Ellen Show to discuss her pregnancy when presenter Ellen DeGeneres suggested the pair play a version of “Lightning Round” – a game Graham plays on her podcast, Pretty Big Deal, which involves guests answering a round of rapid-fire questions.

While Graham is usually the one asking questions, DeGeneres decided to switch roles and put the model in the hot seat.

DeGeneres began by asking Graham a series of trivial questions including “besides your husband, who do you have a crush on?” and “what has been your most embarrassing wardrobe malfunction?”

However, in the final seconds of the game, DeGeneres asked: “Are you having a boy or a girl?”

Graham promptly responded: “I’m having a boy! I’m gonna be a mummy to a boy!”

The model also revealed details of her due date, saying the baby was due in “January sometime” but that she had been told it could arrive early or late.

When DeGeneres asked if the baby could be born around the same time as her birthday, which falls on 26 January, Graham added: “A little before”.

The 32-year-old announced that she was expecting her first child with husband, Justin Ervin, in August.

The couple, who have been married for nine years, celebrated their wedding anniversary in a video of themselves on Instagram.

In the clip, the pair could be seen adjusting the camera’s focus before zooming out to show Ervin caressing Graham’s baby bump.

“Surprise,” the pair say in unison, before sharing a kiss.

In the caption to the post, Graham wrote: “Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life. It has been the best journey with my favourite person in the world!

“Today, we are feeling so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate with our GROWING FAMILY! Happy anniversary, @mrjustinervin. Life is about to get even better. [sic]"
