Pregnant Loose Women star Stacey Solomon took to Instagram yesterday to ask fans for advice and share a photograph of her furry belly.
Stacey, 29, is due to give birth to her first child with boyfriend Joe Swash this summer and, candid as ever, posted a snap of her bump and admitted: “I think I’m pregnant with a Furby.”
Enjoying a sun-soaked holiday with her eldest son Zachary, 11, Stacey said: “I need to know… Did anyone else’s belly just suddenly become covered in fur?”
She added: “I’m not sure if you can see it but all of the grainy little lines are blonde hairs that I’ve never had before and now I’ve now started sprouting some lovely thick, wirey black ones around my belly button.”
Explaining she’s always had “my hair tummy snail trail which is a line of hair that practically goes from my cleavage all the way done to my hoo-ha”, Stacey – who is also mum to six-year-old Leighton – said she’s never experienced “an all-over fuzz” before.
Quick to tell fans she wasn’t “one bit” upset about the changes pregnancy has made to her body, Stacey said: “I’ve always loved my, furrier than most, body, I’m just so fascinated as to why this happens? What does it mean? Is it to keep the Furby warm?”
Stacey asked fans for any insight as to why the hairy phenomenon may happen, before adding: “As long as they’re not scary, if you have something scary to say, DON’T my anxiety can’t take it.”
Fans reacted immediately, with one asking if she was the only one “who can see the bunny?!”
“Your stretch marks look like bunny ears and your belly button is the nose!” the fan said, adding: “Bump is getting in the easter spirit.”
Explaining that the “bunny” was her belly button piercing scar, Stacey said it “gets bigger every pregnancy”.
The star has embraced her third pregnancy – and her ever-changing shape. Earlier this week, the TV favourite posted a picture of herself sitting at the side of the pool and said: “I honestly love how much stretch marks shine in the sun! Natural glitter.”
Zachary, though, hasn’t taken to his mum’s changing shape as kindly.
Posing next to her giggling son in her bikini, Stacey revealed: “He’s laughing because he thinks my boobs are way too big and embarrassing for me to be cuddling him.”
