Stacey Solomon never shies away from talking all things body image and self acceptance and the Loose Women panellist is often praised for getting candid about everything from mental health to motherhood.
Now, Stacey has been praised for showing her ‘real’ bikini body following the birth of her daughter, Rose, and after revealing she doesn’t work out.
Fans have celebrated Stacey’s confidence, saying that she is an important role model for her eight-month-old, whom she shares with ex EastEnders actor Joe Swash.
The former X Factor star shared an adorable video on social media, cuddling her daughter and wearing a big smile on her face.
Wearing a pink floral print swimsuit, Stacey looked radiant as she threw a giggling Rose into the air.
In her caption, she penned a love letter to Rose, writing: ‘Dear Rose, I hope you grow up and love who you are. 🖤 I hope that love is never determined by your appearance. To the moon and back darling… 🖤’
As the UK prepares for a heatwave, Stacey continued to remind people that, while temperatures hit 34 degrees in some areas, everyone should ‘wear whatever makes you feel comfortable.’
‘You’re beautiful. Never let anyone make you believe otherwise,’ she added.
It wasn’t long until the praise came flooding in, with one follower commenting: ‘She’ll grow up seeing a mummy who is beautiful and confident, a daddy who builds her up and brothers who love and will fiercely protect her ❤️ I’d say she’s got a very good chance of loving herself too 😘😘’.
Feeling empowered after reading Stacey’s post, another commented: ‘Can’t wait to buy my 1st bikini in 40+ years. Going to be 48 this year and going to embrace my body stretch marks and all’.
‘I just love everything about you Stacey ❤️ the way you make us all feel and the bond with your beautiful children is something I adore’, said another.
Recently, Stacey declared that the gym just isn’t her scene as she modelled pieces from her InTheStyle swimwear collection.
Posing up a storm at her gorgeous home – known as Pickle Cottage – Stacey stunning in a vibrant set, with the sun shining down on her.
She added into her caption: ‘DISCLAIMER I don’t work out!’, before showing off the rest of her range, which featured a pink all-in-one bathing suit and two piece with frills.
After being inundated with compliments and messages of support, the TV presenter wrote: ‘Your messages are soooooo lovely. I’m so pleased with this whole collection and so proud to have made swimwear I feel comfortable in.’
‘I hope you love it as much as I’ve LOVED making it’, she said.
