Stacey Solomon has been hailed a “great role model” after embracing her stretch marks in a new Instagram post.

The Loose Women panellist, who is currently on holiday with her eldest son Zachary, shared a photo of herself sitting by the pool in a red bikini as she described stretch marks as “natural glitter.”

“I honestly love how much stretch marks shine in the sun! Natural glitter. Photo courtesy of Zachary,” she captioned the post.

Her “body positive” attitude was commended by fans who described her as “an inspiration” for other women.

I love you Stacey your [sic] so funny and have a huge heart! Always positive and such a fab role model. You look fantastic too!” one fan wrote.

“One in a million great role model,” another praised her.

“Girls these days need to see more posts like this, positive posts of women in the spotlight who love their curves and embrace their ‘glitter’ (I love that),” a third comment read. “Thank you @staceysolomon for posting this. You look amazing.”

“Finally… someone embracing tiger stripes with pride!!! Good on you @staceysolomon,” another fan wrote.

In an earlier post, Solomon revealed that she had decided to take a special trip with her eldest son “during the calm before the storm,” ahead of welcoming her third child later this year.

Spending some time with mummy all to himself before has to share me three ways,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself cuddling the 11-year-old.

He’s been sharing me with his little brother for nearly 7 years and he’s been incredible. So we are getting some memories in during the calm before the storm.”
