It’s hard to believe Christina Milian gave birth to her son, Isaiah, only one month ago, considering how snatched her post-baby body looks in her latest Instagram post. The singer welcomed her first child with her boyfriend, French singer Matt Pokora, last month on January 20th, and she’s already working hard to “bounce back” to her pre-pregnancy body. On Thursday, Christina shared a few snaps her new Fashion Nova jumpsuit (she’s a sponsored partner for the brand) on Instagram, showing f her incredible post-baby physique.
In the caption the post, Christina tells the tale about how all her dreams came true when she was signed to Def Jam at 18 years old. “Lookin’ like I’m ready to hit the stage,” she wrote. “Fun Fact: When I was a teen I dreamed being signed to Def Jam.. every cd I owned, every group, rapper or singer I played in my car was majority Def Jam artist. From that point I set my intentions. And with my Mom-Manager by my side at 18 I signed my first record deal to be @islanddefjam’s 1st ‘urban pop’ artist. It was a dream come true.” While the story is certainly inspiring, many her fans could only focus on how unreal she looked.

“Damn! Did u even have a baby?!!!! Lol,” one her followers exclaimed. “The snap back,” another wrote in the comments. “How much weight have you lost already? You look amazing,” asked another user. A few weeks ago, Christina opened up about her struggles not only with looking like her pre-baby self again, but also with regaining her confidence. On yet another Fashion Nova-sponsored post, Christina wrote, “OK here it goes… Three weeks post pregnancy and I’m feeling better everyday.”
“In the beginning I was kind worried because my body after baby was retaining SO MUCH water—I’d look in the mirror and be like ‘wtf I look like Spongebob'” she joked. “I’d also enjoyed my pregnancy] body so much. I missed it and felt I looked better when I was pregnant for sure.. However I tried not to let those thoughts get the best me and had to accredit myself for the 9 months making an actual human! And with faith, hydration, breast feeding and not being so damn sprung on looks—my confidence is gained day by day.”
