Jacqueline Jossa has won praise for boldly showing off her stretch marks in a bikini, just four months after giving birth to her second daughter Mia.
The 25-year-old EastEnders actress was on holiday with husband Dan Osborne when she decided to reveal her post-baby body with a candid snap.
Alongside a picture of her in a strapless burgundy bikini, she wrote: “Learn to love your marks ladies. My girls are worth it!”
The mum of two, who also has daughter Ella, three, with Celebrity Big Brother star Dan, also shared a post to Instagram of her holding adorable baby Mia by the pool. The couple were taking a relaxing break with their family and looked to be happier than ever.
Jacqueline also told her followers: “This is real life ppl, zoom in on the stretch marks at your own risk!”
Her hoards of fans were quick to send her praise for her honesty.
One wrote: “She does look good… she only had a baby a few months ago!!! She looks fantastic.” While another commented: “She looks amazing. She only had her baby a few months ago. some coconut oil will help any stretch marks.”
The star has been vocal about her weight-loss journey since giving birth, telling her followers: “Hey! So I’m on a journey to sort out my nutrition, my body and my mind.” And since having Mia she has lost over one and a half stone through healthy eating and exercise.
She revealed last month: “I lost a stone and a half and I am still not exactly where I want to be weight wise but looking at the difference in the pictures to me (maybe not you) but to me, I am like 2 different people. I have grown in confidence and I am not ashamed of my new found confidence.”
Former The Only Way Is Essex star Dan, 27, has gushed over Jac’s progress, branding her “incredible”. Speaking of his wife’s confidence boost, he told OK! magazine last month: “She looks incredible. I’m happy that she’s feeling confident again. I know that. I can see it in her. She’s doing really well and she is sticking to her diet and her fitness regime.”
The couple appear to be more loved up than ever following a rough patch in their relationship shortly before Dan entered the CBB house. But since his exit from the Channel 5 show they have gone from strength to strength.
Jacqueline, who wed Essex boy Dan in a lavish ceremony in Cheshire in June 2017, confirmed they were back on track last month. She told OK! magazine: “Our wedding rings are firmly back on and we’re stronger than ever.”
Dan added: “It’s no secret that we went through a bad patch, but we’re back together and things are really good. We split up earlier this year but started to get back on track when Mia was born in June and it’s better than ever between us now.”
