NE-YO’s Wife Crystal Renay Smith Shows Off Post Baby Body and C-Section Scar One Week After Delivery

03/25/2016 at 08:45 PM ET

Crystal Renay Smith is an open book.

The new mom recently took to Instagram, proudly sharing a photo collage and video of her post-baby body, just a 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 a black bra as she offers a profile and front view of her body, in which her surgery scar is visible and still 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 video post, Renay Smith gives a full 360 view of her body as she spins in a circle.

“When hubby says show that video #FlawsAndAll #ComfortableInMySkin #LongAsHELovesMe #1WeekPostpartum #SJmamabad #StretchMarksWhereBih,” she captioned the clip.

Renay Smith and NE-YO welcomed son Shaffer Chimere Jr. earlier this month, just three weeks after the couple tied 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 captioned a photo of her son’s hand following his delivery.

Who bloody cares.
We dont’ need to see your body, we don’t need to hear about your “comeback” either. Just go on with your life already.

I’m not sure what the article is implying ” she got right.” The photo is not celebrating her post birth body… But a posting about how one week after giving birth she is already focused a losing weight etc.

Nasturtium, just look at her tacky stomach tattoo. That’ll tell you who she is.

I don’t think she’s bragging…I think she is saying, “Wow! I just spent more than 7 months on bedrest, and ended up with an unexpected c-section, and I’m finally up and around! So excited it’s over and my great baby is here. In a few weeks, I can get back to exercising, and living my life, and anyone who wants to can follow my journey back to health!”

I’d rather see this lady than Alec Baldwin’s attention seeking wife! At least Crystal has a body that actually looks like she had a baby.

Good thing she tattooed her name on her stomach!!!

Why do all these people think we want to know their business – they sure all hell do not want to know mine. I LOVE the internet, but has given all the people who have access to it also access to their 15 minutes of fame. Let’s go back to personal lives being PERSONAL!

The body looks fine but man… that tattoo? Her OWN name on her stomach above the scar? Gross.

Another nobody who wants some attention. Sooooo desperate. Hey lady, you’re not the only person to have a baby.
And those nasty tattoos? Yuck…..all ‘tatted up’ and desperate for some type of recognition.

Donna Beth on

What’s the tattoo on her upper chest?, It looks like a giant dust mite.

Ella on

Her body is gorgeous, the tattoos are trashy.

Ye on

More prison prep programming meets fertility demoralization

Krauss on

That’s awesome of her! Good to see there are celebs who can be honest and show the reality of body after baby! She looks great!

Ann on

So happy for her on the new addition.

Truth is on

But isnt neyo gay?!?

Why is there supposed to be public interest in viewing her C-section scar? Women have cecarians every day. Women give natural birth every day. I don’t get it.
