Big Brother Alum Rachel Reilly Shows Off 'Strong' Post-Baby Body a Week After Welcoming Son

New mom Rachel Reilly is full of appreciation for her body!

Just over a week after the Big Brother alum, 36, welcomed her second child with husband Brendon Villegas — a son named Adler Mateo — Reilly showed off her post-baby body.

“Why I love my #postpartum body! It’s real!!!” she wrote on Instagram, alongside a series of photos which showed the mother of two rocking a two-piece swimsuit during a recent trip to the beach with Villegas and their daughter Adora Borealis, 4½.

“It’s not perfect – it’s strong it’s healing – it gave me a new life,” she continued.

Reilly also went on to share how grateful she felt to enjoy some time outdoors, while also encouraging her followers to “be safe” and do their part to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. “Also love that I can get out and walk the beach and enjoy fresh air!!!” she wrote, adding, “Be safe wear a mask / social distance.”

Villegas, 40, announced baby Adler's birth on Nov. 11, revealing at the time that they hadn't decided on a name just yet.

"Thank you for all the well wishes for Rachel and the baby. Rachel and our baby boy are both healthy and doing well," he wrote on Twitter. "They are recovering at UCLA. I am sure it will not be too long until Rachel shares some pics, but I will leave that up to our momma warrior. No name as of yet."

The couple went on to reveal the newborn’s moniker several days later.

Reilly and Villegas revealed to PEOPLE in May that they were expecting their second child after "trying for a while."

"We are beyond excited,” Reilly said of her pregnancy at the time.

The second-time parents went on to announce the sex of their new addition in September. "It's going to be so fun to have a girl and a boy! Adora is going to teach her baby brother so much and I can't wait to meet him," Reilly previously told PEOPLE, admitting that she "totally wanted a baby boy."

And while the couple had hoped for a son, Villegas went on to emphasize that their main focus is keeping their family healthy.

"Of course we both wanted a boy, but when you become pregnant immediately before the onset of a major pandemic, all you can focus on is keeping your family safe," he said.

The couple first met in 2010 on season 12 of Big Brother, before returning to the house for a second time the following year, when Reilly won. They later appeared as a couple on two seasons of The Amazing Race, and Reilly went back for a third season with her sister Elissa.
