Stacey Solomon has been praised by fans after inspirational post about stretch marks.
The Loose Women panellist, who recently announced that she is expecting her first child with TV presenter partner Joe Swash, took to social media with a sweet photo showing off her stretch marks and some words of inspiration to go along with it.
Sharing a photo from behind that shows her sitting by the side of a swimming pool dipping her legs in, the mum-of-two refers to the stretch marks that are visible on the side of her back, captioning the post: ‘I honestly love how much stretch marks shine in the sun!

Fans rushed to praise the expectant mum, who was overwhelmed by the response, writing: ‘So many lovely #bodypositive comments on here making me smile from ear to ear love u allll’.
‘Stacey love I’ve got stretchys and I haven’t even had a bambino yet!!!’ commented one fan on the positive post. ‘Its years of yo yo dieting..I love my silver lines!! You embrace them’.
‘My little 5 year old daughter just said “she’s so beautiful” and I love her swimming suit x’
‘I’ve got stretch marks from my second pregnancy’ added another, ‘wore my bikini with pride and showed them off when baby was 7 months!’
‘We need more posts like this,’ raved another fan, ‘my stomach is absolutely covered in them (second pregnancy adding to it) and sometimes it’s so depressing.
‘Seeing more people embrace them is soooo important and comforting! Well done you for having the balls and confidence to do so. Imagine being a teenager with stretch marks and seeing this post?! What a confidence boost! X’
Partner Joe’s fellow I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here Now presenter Scarlett Moffatt also commented on the post, writing: ‘Thank you for being you Stacey ❤ I bloody love you xx’
