While stretch marks are totally normal, Solenn recounted her own personal experience and answered her followers and fellow moms in a YouTube vlog she uploaded last December 27.

She started, "I'm trying to think [about] what you guys have been asking me about my belly. A lot of you guys asked about how I don't get stretch marks on my belly."

"You know what, I think it's just hereditary or genetics. I don't really have the Linea Nigra, but again, it's nothing you can control. It depends on how your mom was or your skin tone, I have no idea," she said, emphasizing that stretch marks are genetic.

With that said, Solenn shared she applied coconut oil, which is bruited to be good for maintaining a radiant complexion, and attributed this to how she has kept her belly smooth. She quipped, "I've been using a lot of coconut oil. So every day I put coconut oil so I don't really have stretch marks."

"I have lots of veins, I have my pokes from the injections but right now it's not so bruised. But what worked for me [in keeping my skin supple] was coconut oil day and night, day and night, day and night. Coconut oil everywhere," Solenn added.

The it-girl also discussed her food intake to give her followers an idea on how it contributed to keeping her weight down and making her feel better during her pregnancy. "Diet-wise, my first pregnancy, I gained 16 or 17 kilos. This pregnancy, I gained 10, which is also gonna be, which is why I feel better and lighter. Because my first pregnancy, I was told to eat 3,000 calories a day, and I was on 15 protein pills a day."

"Whereas this one, I'm literally just eating the way I've always eaten, so normal portions. I have carbs here and there, [but] not daily," she continued.
