“Nature = the prettiest backgrounds. No filter needed. Loving my extra fold over tummy lines this year, they look like a six pack wahoo! Winning. Happy hump day,” she captioned the image.
One fan wrote: “I wish there were more women out there like you! An amazing role model for women and young girls!”
Another added: “Love this! thank you for showing what a real body looks like you absolute gem!”

The snap comes after Stacey opened up on her grooming habits, revealing that she hadn’t groomed her intimate area in over 10 years.
Stacey revealed that she was bullied at school because of her excess body hair and began shaving as soon as she could.
However, after welcoming her first son, Zachary, 10 years ago, former The X Factor star Stacey decided to give up her extensive grooming habits, which she labelled a chore.
Stacey wrote: “It helped that no one was coming within a mile radius of my vagina after the trauma of childbirth but it was also because, when I was pregnant and went for my first appointment with a gynaecologist, I remember being extremely embarrassed about my untrimmed bush.
“So much so that I didn’t want her to do a swab. She informed me that it was imperative that she did and as I got into the gown, I said: “I’m so sorry, I haven’t shaved and it looks disgusting’.”
“She looked at me in horror and the 17-year-old me assumed she’d refuse to do the swab and send me back to shave and wash. Much to my surprise, her horrified look was because she couldn’t believe that I was apologising and so ashamed of my natural hair.
“She went on to explain to me that pubic hair is an important part of our bodies and that it serves many purposes.”
