A mom of three posted a bikini picture on Facebook celebrating her stretch marks as evidence of blessings that she carried her babies, and she’s now a viral Internet phenomenon.

“I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini. I have a belly that's permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy... (which is something I didn't even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini,” Rachel Hollis wrote on her photo, posting it to her Facebook page, The Chic Site.

The post has earned more than 380,000 likes and numerous accolades from viewers. Today.com reported the image has topped 10 million views.

“You have no idea of how empowering your words are to someone as myself,” one woman wrote. “I gave birth to my last baby (my third son) 6 months ago. I have many stretch marks... and my confidence has plummeted. Reading this has made me realize how im seeing everything in the wrong way... THANK YOU! I BELIEVE YOUVE GIVEN ME A CERTAIN BOOST I NEEDED TO HELP BEGIN THE PROCESS OF REGAINING MY SELF CONFIDENCE.”

Hollis was in Cancun on a vacation when she posted the photo Saturday, and she had just completed her first marathon. “I thought, it’s not going to get better than this. You ran the 26 miles, and I had been training for six months. My body is never going to be smaller than it is right now, so if there’s ever time to show off your belly, this is probably it,” she told Today.com.
