Trolls body shamed this mum-of-six and her husband had the best response

Sharney Kieser often shares beautiful photos of herself online.

The mum-of-six proudly displays her stretch marks in her snaps on her social media pages that aim to help mamas get fit after they’ve had a baby.

You would think after giving birth six times, Sharney would be praised for being so confident to share pictures of her body but no, many people have targeted the 39-year-old with vile comments.

Sharney’s husband, Julius recently posted a photo of his wife kneeling on the floor wearing a crop top and shorts.

Julius noticed nasty comments on the post so decided to reply to them on Instagram. He wrote the sweetest message:

“Last week, I posted a photo of Sharny with her tummy out and a young girl said ‘at least photoshop the disgusting stretch marks out’,.”

“I think they’re beautiful. I think they symbolise the strength of a mother who brought 6 children into the world. Not just this mother, but EVERY mother.”

“I believe that a body of a confident WOMAN (like this) is far more beautiful and sexy than the body of an insecure GIRL (what you normally see on social media)”.

After reading Julius’ reaction, many women defended the mum-of-six. One Facebook user wrote:

“I feel empowered when I see REAL bodies with lovely mummy tummies. That’s the way it should be !!!”

Others said she is an “inspiration” and looks “beautiful”.

Only a few weeks ago, Chrissy Teigen showed off her stretch marks in a similar post on Twitter. The model said she was proud to show off her ‘mum bod’.
