Jessica Alba: “I love my stretch marks and cellulite!”

Actress embraces the changes to her body since becoming a mum

Whilst most mums try to hide their post pregnancy lumps and bumps, actress Jessica Alba is more than happy with her post-pregnancy bod – cellulite and all!


The glamorous mum to 18-month-old Honor Marie isn’t letting her stubborn lady lumps get to her and reckons that it’s all worthwhile. “Even though some might consider them a flaw, I’ve learned to love my stretch marks. Pregnancy was the most incredible experience I’ve ever had,” she revealed in the US Self magazine.

However, we can’t imagine 29-year-old Jess having any spare flab on her svelte figure, although she reveals that she does suffer from post-pregnancy sagging, drooping and orange peel skin, but has learned to love them. “I’ll take the stretch marks. I’ll take the sagging boobs. I’ll take the cellulite I can never get rid of. Confidence is number one.”

If you battle with your post-baby stretch marks, there are a huge range of lotions and potions which aim to reduce the appearance. Check out MFM’s guide to the best stretch mark cream to see which one suits you.
