Stacey Solomon has been praised for sharing a ‘refreshing’ post showing off her body as she enjoys a holiday with her family. And she looks pretty bloody amazing, too.
Stacey, who is also the mum to 15-year old Zachary; Leighton, 10; Rex, three and one-year-old Rose, has kept her 5.6 million Instagram followers up to date with her ongoing holiday by sharing regular updates.
And her most recent post has been flooded with praise by her fans, with one saying it was ‘everything’.
In the post, Stacey can be seen beaming on a beach while wearing a black two-piece swimsuit and her long hair loose around her shoulders.
In one snap, Stacey can be seen gently cradling little Belle, who is wearing an adorable swimming costume and matching hat, while in another she’s sat playing in the sand with Rose.
Fans loved the fact that Stacey didn’t feel the need to filter or edit her snaps before sharing them online - and, personally, I’m absolutely here for it, too.
One person commented: "I never comment on celebs pics but this is so refreshing to see! A normal mum with a normal beautiful body making memories with her kids. Love to see it."
Another wrote: “This is so refreshing to see such a candid photo of you and your princess! No filters, no Photoshop, no expert pose and photography, just a beautiful natural woman unashamedly embracing her body... and it is EVERYTHING! This post gives me chills in the best way!”
A fellow mum said: The fact you post these pictures after just giving birth is what so many of your followers truly love you for… being yourself! Summer is such a difficult time for me after having two kids and not being slim so Thank you for portraying a ‘normal’ body.”
A fourth added: Love these photos! Quality family time captured naturally without filters or being edited. Hope you all have a lovely time. And thank you Stacey for showing us to be proud of our bodies and to embrace ourselves and just live in the moment.”
The mum-of-five is a big fan of being honest and open with her followers about motherhood.
Last month she took time out to praise herself for ‘smashing it’, after admitting that she had been allowing negative thoughts to creep in.
In a frank post on Insta, she said: "Proud. Feeling like I smashed it today. Don’t mind if I sound big headed but I felt like a superhuman today.
"For some reason lately I’ve found it easy to tell myself that I’m failing or doing a rubbish job & I never tell myself how well I'm doing. Three 3 & under & two teenagers is wonderful but it’s not easy.
"Joe did a night feed for me last night & then went to work. So we did the school runs and then afterwards I managed to make it for the first time EVER to Rhyme time at the library with Rex, Rose & Belle."
