Crystal Renay Smith recently took to Instagram, where she proudly shared images and footage of her post baby body, just 1 week after delivering her first child—a son—with singer Ne-Yo.
“1 week postpartum. Being on bedREST 85% of my pregnancy and not being able to work out the entire time was truly challenging and hard on my body,” Renay Smith captioned a split image of herself. “Then to get a C-section on top of that was a major setback.”
In the snap, the model poses in black leggings and and a mathcing bra as she offers a profile and front view of her body, in which her c-section scar is visible and bandaged. “My body isn’t what it once was but that’s ok because now in the next coming weeks (AFTER IM HEALED PROPERLY) I can share my #SNAPBACK journey and progress with you guys!” she continued. “This comeback is about to get real y’all! #SJmamabad #JustHadABaby #NoWaistTrainer #StretchMarksWhereBih #MyHusbandIsALuckyGuy #FlawsAndAll.”
In a second post, the new mom provided a full 360 view of her post baby body as she spins in a circle. “When hubby says show that video #FlawsAndAll #ComfortableInMySkin #LongAsHELovesMe #1WeekPostpartum #SJmamabad #StretchMarksWhereBih,” she wrote.
As previously reported, the newlyweds welcomed their son, Shaffer Chimere Jr., on Tuesday, March 15 and just three weeks after tying the knot in an oceanside ceremony. “It was the scariest delivery ever and I ended up getting a emergency c-section cause of complications but with the help of my amazing doctor Sheryl Ross and my super calming husband NE-YO I was able to get through it all and come out with best reward in the world… SJ!!!!! #BesdtDayOfMyLife,” Renay Smith wrote via Instagram, following her son’s delivery.
Although Shaffer is the couple’s first child together, Ne-Yo is already dad to five-year-old daughter Madilyn and four-year-old son Mason from his relationship with Monyetta Shaw.
