The new mom and wife of Ne-Yo has shared some awesome post-baby body pics on Instagram.

It's only been a week since Crystal Renay Smith delivered her first child—son Shaffer Chimere Jr. with hubby singer Ne-Yo—but the proud mama has already taken to Instagram to share awesome photos and video of her post-baby body.

"1 week postpartum," she wrote in one of the captions. "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."

Renay Smith is rocking a pair of low-rise black leggings with a black bra in the pics—one of which shows a front view of her bod with her surgery scar on full display. The other shot shows off her profile, and I gotta say it's pretty impressive. I was on bed rest for most of my second pregnancy and I looked nothing like this one week postpartum.

"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!" the bold mama went on. "This comeback is about to get real y'all! #SJmamabad #JustHadABaby #NoWaistTrainer #StretchMarksWhereBih #MyHusbandIsALuckyGuy #FlawsAndAll."

How cute is she with all those hashtags?

And it doesn't stop there. In her video post, Renay Smith shows off her body even more, twirling around in a circle with nothing to hide. "When hubby says show that video," she wrote, then added the hashtags: "#FlawsAndAll #ComfortableInMySkin #LongAsHELovesMe #1WeekPostpartum #SJmamabad #StretchMarksWhereBih."

Mad props, Crystal! You are an inspirations to us all. Congrats to the whole beautiful family!

  1. Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
