The mom-to-be was a vision of glamour with her brunette tresses styled into sleek, loose waves with a glamorous side part.
She worked an array of gold jewelry, including a chain necklace, and a pair of strappy neon yellow heels which injected another playful touch to the look.
In the images, Ashley tenderly cradled her bump while flashing a silly, shocked expression for the camera.
She appeared more contemplative in a second shot capturing her gazing towards the ocean blue with her hand gently resting at the top of her belly.

Ashley announced she was expecting her second child with husband Justin Ervin a little over a year after giving birth to their son Isaac last year.
The model recently admitted her control has ‘gone out the window’ during her pregnancy.
Speaking with People, Ashley said she has stopped trying to ‘control’ her body because she knows she will ‘never feel the same’ as she did before she was pregnant.

She said: ‘I think being in control when you’re pregnant, it just gets thrown out the window.
‘And I learned that the hard way when I tried to control everything when I was pregnant with Isaac and I told myself that I was going to bounce right back because I was breastfeeding and everybody told me, “Oh, if you breastfeed you’re going to lose all the weight.” And I had a few honest women tell me you will never feel the same. So they were just blunt with me and sure enough, I haven’t felt the same.
‘And then boom. I was like, “Well, I just got pregnant again so maybe I’ll never feel the same and I don’t even know what I felt like before I was pregnant with Isaac anyways.”‘

Ashley also heaped praise on the ‘mommy community’ that she joined when she was pregnant with her first child, as she now has a place to go to for advice without being shamed.
‘I think that the best thing I did was find a mommy community and when I’m pregnant, I find other pregnant people to just call and ask [questions] because this pregnancy is so different from the last and different symptoms, different feelings.
‘And then when the kid gets here, then you have a whole other slew of questions because they don’t come with a manual, so [I’m] all about the community. And I think that if I didn’t have that, I would be so lost.’
