A post-baby body is a marvel. Its stretch marks and sagging skin tell a story -- but if you're living with one for the first time, it can be almost impossible to see it that way. And it can be even harder imagining your longtime partner will be able to see it that way either.

Mother-of-two Laura Mazza of Mum on the Run recently opened up about her self-love struggles on Facebook with the most relatable photo and caption. 

"The body he fell in love with was toned, it had muscles, there were no stretch marks on my belly, none on my boobs, no gut from muscle separation. The body he fell in love with fit into tight jeans, could walk into a shop and grab any size and walk out, knowing it fit.This body now couldn't shop at those stores, and mostly wears leggings. His body stayed the same, but mine changed in every way. It isn't fair..."

But when she confronted him about it, his reaction was utterly priceless.

"I stood in front of him, exhausted and broken, the tears welled in my eyes, 'This isn't the body you fell in love with.' Then he said, 'you're right. It isn't the body I fell in love with. Instead it's a body that grew our children, it fed our children, it comforted our children, it made life. Your body is the one I fall in love with every day I didn't know what love was until I saw this body and found out all it could do, so thank you.'"

Oh. My. God.

Mazza wrapped up the post by telling her followers that their partners likely feel the same way about them too.

"If you needed a reminder, this is it, this body you have now, it's worth every bit of love and more."
Damn straight, ladies.
