"Tired of hiding" her stretch marks, Sarah Lahbati turned her “biggest insecurity” into something she now fully embraces—and even celebrates.
“I’m not perfect. No one is. What’s funny is it took me a while to accept that,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
“I’ve always been ready to give all of me for my loved ones but never poured that same cup to myself,” she confessed.

For the actress, her stretch marks are her “best tattoos.” They serve as “a reminder that I am a strong and resilient woman who has been through a lot,” she pointed out, highlighting her birth to her two sons Zion and Kai.
“I am loved, understood & cherished by my husband (Richard Gutierrez). I couldn’t ask for anything more,” she declared.
After reminding her followers that they are beautiful and enough, Lahbati turned out grateful “to be alive, to be loved, messy, and to be fully myself.”
“Wouldn’t have it any other way. Took a while for me to get here. But here I am. Proud,” she said.
“Cheers to all of you, women.”
In the comment section, the local star received some love and support from her loved ones in showbiz, including Iza Calzado, Raymond Gutierrez, Max Collins, and Neri Miranda. Gutierrez commented: “Proud of you my love.”
Lahbati, who became famous for her StarStruck stint on GMA-7, is currently on a sun-soaked vacation in El Nido, Palawan with her family.
