In the same way that stars aren't immune to swollen stomachs and excess skin from pregnancy, they're not exempt from stretch marks, either, and these stars are all celebrating theirs.

From Stacey Solomon to Lady Gaga, here are the celebs' photos and words proving that stretch marks are both natural and beautiful.
