Though we’re all well aware of this fact by now, here’s a reminder: Ashley Graham is hot AF. With a scorching gaze, amazing curves, and a fierce attitude to top it all off, it’s no wonder plenty of ladies look up the famous boundary-breaking (cellulite-embracing, Joe Jonas-kissing) model. That’s why her swimsuit confession is not at all what anyone would expect.

It turns out that the Swimsuit Illustrated model is still shy about exposing her form, telling People, “I mean, of course like any girl when you get to the beach or the pool and you go, ‘Oh, I have to take my cover-up off, crap.’ And you feel like everybody’s watching, and then you just go, ‘Oh fine, I’ll just take it off.’”

Though it’s certainly unexpected to find out that Graham has poolside hesitations about her bod, we can definitely relate when she added, “And then all of a sudden you get comfortable and go, ‘Okay. Another piña colada.’” We’re partial to daiquiris, but we get the point.
