Stacey Solomon, 29, has praised her stretch marks and said they “bring her so much joy” in her latest inspirational Instagram post.
The mum-of-three shared a sweet selfie of her three month old son Rex sleeping on her chest with a few stretch marks on while she smiles and looks up the camera.
Stacey, who has Rex with boyfriend Joe Swash, 37, said her “silver strings” bring her “so much joy” in the caption.
“I know for a fact he wouldn’t settle half as quickly on me if he didn’t have some stretch marks to strum like a guitar every night when he settles for his night sleep,” Stacey said in the caption with a laughing emoji.
She added: “He plays those silver strings until he’s snoring! It brings me so much joy.”
She then gave an inspirational message to her followers and added: “There’s so many positives to what the world wants us to see as negatives.”
Known for being open about life as a parent, Stacey’s latest honest social media update received more than 166,000 likes, and 2,300 comments.
Her fans praised the mum in the comments for her uplifting words.
“Every one needs a Stacey Solomon in their life,” one said with a kissing emoji.
“I love your attitude towards everything Stacey but especially how you embrace the things we’ve all been conditioned to hate about ourselves,” another added.
“Wishing the world was more like you,” a third fan commented.
“You’re such a positive role model for women,” a fourth wrote while adding a string of heart emojis.
This comes after Stacey, Rex, Joe and her two sons from previous relationships, Zachary, 11, and Leighton, eight, went on their first family holiday together since Stacey gave birth to Rex in May.
During their trip, Stacey posted a series of photos updating fans on their family trip including an adorable photo of baby Rex wearing a bow tie and a hilarious snap of her squirting sun cream at her suns while on the beach.
Stacey was also recently praised by friend Vicky Pattinson, 31, after she shared a post of herself in a bikini, declaring “cellulite is beautiful” in the caption.
Former Geordie Shore lass Vicky, re-shared the photo on her profile and called Stacey her Woman Crush Wednesday.
Vicky wrote alongside the photo: “Stacey you are beautiful inside and out and proved to me it is possible to be warm, genuine, and kind in an industry that isn’t always easy to be in!”
