Actress Coleen Garcia proudly revealed to her social media followers what her tummy looked like when she was pregnant with her son Amari.
On Instagram over the weekend, Coleen posted never-before-seen photos showing her journey before giving birth to Amari, including a close-up shot of her pregnant belly, which was covered with stretch marks.
In the comments section of her post, a netizen who goes by the username irishabne asked how Coleen managed to get rid of her stretch marks.
"They're still here! The color just faded, but they're still kinda sunken," the actress answered.
"You can really only see them up close or in harsh lighting. Haven't done anything to treat them," she added.
Meanwhile, in the caption of her post, a sentimental Coleen reflected on her nearly one-year journey as a first-time parent with her husband, TV host-singer Billy Crawford.
"It’s September!!! I’ve been reminiscing and looking through old photos of this time when it was still just the two of us, and oh how different everything was! We really had no idea what we were in for, not just by having a baby, but by having a baby during THIS time. Still in the middle of a pandemic," she said.
"Either way, life has been more vibrant than ever, and time really does fly. I’m somewhere between 'It’s been a year already?!' and 'It’s only been a year?!' and to think I haven’t even made it to the Day 1 Amari photos yet. I’ll cry," she added.
Responding to her post, Billy praised his wife for being an amazing mom to their son Amari, who will be turning 1 this coming Friday, September 10.
"Hahahahahaha my goodness the journey! You are an unbelievable mom! Strong and amazingly beautiful inside and out. God has given me a beautiful family. Thank You Lord!" he said.
The couple welcomed their son via home birth last year, amid the lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
They have been married for more than three years. They celebrated their third wedding anniversary last April.
