Model and new mum Iskra Lawrence has flaunted her "soft tummy" in new self-love snaps.
Iskra, 31, who gave birth to her son back in April last year, took to her Instagram page to share the inspiring photos.
She was seen posing happily in a blue underwear set as she soaked up the sun on a balcony.
The model, who is happily loved-up with songwriter Philip Payne, told her 4.8million followers she was sharing the photos as a form of self-love.
The star said she had learned to be her "biggest cheerleader" – especially since becoming a new mum – after suffering from body dysmorphia in the past.
Addressing her fans, she wrote: "Soft tummy szn 4eva. As easy as I might make self confidence seem, it’s so much more than just putting on your cutest undie set and posing for pics.
"Everyday I choose to be my biggest cheerleader, I know my many privileges and I’ll never forget the darkness of body dysmorphia and disordered eating and will forever protect myself.
"Embracing all the changes and challenges of being a new mom has definitely given me a new perspective.
"At times self-care seemed impossible and insignificant when you’re trying to juggle so baby, work and still being present in your relationship.
"I used to love that saying 'put your mask on before helping others' but seriously I would never put my mask on first if my baby needed me."
She continued: "So that work on yourself to keep you feeling worthy, enough and confident can dwindle.
"Because we know self love is not a destination it’s a continual choice and journey with moving unknown obstacles
"What can we do when we feel like our sense of self, our confidence, our relationships are slipping away… we remember who the F we are!
"We look directly at ourselves in the mirror and build ourselves up like we are going into battle, we armour up with our kind words and affirmations and we ask for help when we need it.
"This is our life, no one else’s. We have the ability to own every aspect of it and I believe no matter where you are right now as you’re reading you’ve got this. You’re enough exactly as you are right now ILY."
Fans were loving the post, with it racking up more than 107,000 likes.
Many thanked Iskra for inspiring them as one wrote: "You look stunning! Also really needed this message, self-love was difficult for me to pursue and it's still a battle for me daily, but I try my best to move forward."
While another added: "Exactly what I needed to hear at this moment."
A third told her: "You are so inspiring."
As a fourth added: "Keep being the queen you are."
Iskra and partner Philip have yet to reveal their baby's name – choosing to keep it private.
The social media star had a traumatic birth, revealing she went through 24 hours of unmedicated active labour.
She also said a midwife had to save her little one's life by resuscitation, saying at the time: "You truly are our miracle and I will be grateful every single day for you."
