When the follower asked if Michael cared if Martha got stretch marks, the dad-to-be was quick to shut them down. 

“I honestly don’t give a single f–k,” he wrote.

“Stretch marks, are f–king NORMAL, and will never impact how I feel about her or how obsessed I am with her in the slightest.”

He went on to say that 88% of pregnancies result in stretch marks, adding that is is “f–king mind blowing” that “women literally grow a HUMAN BEING from a damn cell inside them”.

“Any guy that feels differently needs to check his small d-ck energy.”

Michael concluded: “Trust me bro, even if you could, you couldn’t do it. Women are built different.”

Martha herself chimed in on the conversation in the comments, adding: “I couldn’t care less about stretch marks tbh… but I read this quote today and thought it was relevant here..

“‘We have stretch marks to remind us of how much we’ve grown. These are not blemishes. They are maps that we carry to show how much womankind can be stretched but never broke’.”
