Actress Nikki Reed gave birth to her first child with husband Ian Somerhalder on July 25th, and she's gently easing her body back into shape. Reed posted a picture to her Instagram page which showed her being held aloft by her brother Nathan in an Acro-yoga pose, but she downplayed the image by saying it was just a basic stretch.
As #NikkiReed wrote in the caption:
"Hey brother stay away from my uterus." Totally normal thing to say to your brother postpartum Also cred...our Mom. She still thinks everything we do is super cool. Thanks mom.
Ps This might make me feel like a badass but if you know Acro-yoga, you'll see it's really just a basic stretch. Can't do much yet, but while I wait and recover, I might as well do things that make me feel like superwoman with my big bro :). Thanks for the sweet afternoon Boog, I can't wait to get back into some serious moves with you
She did admit, though, what she is able to do while recovering makes her feel like a superwoman — and Nathan, an energy consultant, swears that she's already in shape for the San Diego Triathlon next month. He reposted the image on his own Instagram page, adding a heaping dose of praise for his younger sister:
More stretches and rejuvenating postures. #Teamwork. This time with my beautiful, loving, caring sister who is now a proud mother of a gorgeous little girl. This easy pose stretches her hips, triceps and even her abdomen, which are of course still in repair mode. Of all the postures, there were a few that really felt amazing for her. This was one of them. Can you believe how amazing she looks? I swear she's already in proper shape to join me for the San Diego Triathalon next month...
This isn't the first time Reed has posted a picture of the yoga that she loves. Back in May, she shared a photo which showed her learning the basics of Acro-yoga with her brother, saying how obsessed she with it as it reminded her of her gymnastics days.
With these workouts, it's no wonder Reed's already looking so great so soon after giving birth to baby Bodhi Soleil!
