It's barely been a week since Crystal Renay and Ne-Yo brought their baby boy, Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr., into the world and Renay is already working towards getting fit again. But the new mom isn't doing it in hiding only to resurface weeks later looking better than ever like most celebs. Instead, she's sharing her journey on Instagram and isn't hiding anything.
Crystal started by posting a picture of herself in a sports bra and yoga pants, showing her followers what the beginning looks like. "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. Then to get a C-section on top of that was a major setback," she wrote. "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 with you guys! This comeback is about to get real ya'll!"
Renay also posted a video minutes later of her doing a twirl and showing off her booty with the caption, "When hubby says show that video." It seems the two are enjoying their post-pregnancy and post-marital bliss just fine.
We commend Crystal for not keeping her body in hiding until there's no trace of pregnancy on it. She looks beautiful and clearly has a man who loves every inch of her.
