1st Look at Karen Igho Rakos’ HOT Bod in 3 Outfits, 2 Weeks After Birth



 Karen Igho Rakos gave birth to her first child, and she’s told BN his name is Samuel, 2 weeks ago – on July 4, 2015. 

Click here for first photo of mum and baby! 

Now the one time Big Brother Africa winner, known for her shapely body on the show, has shared these photos of her post-baby body with BellaNaija first, as she thanks bloggers and news agencies for congratulating her. 

In her first look, an orange off-shoulder tea length dress, she pushes around her pram with joy.   

For this second look, it’s the Karen we’re used to in all black – a figure hugging jumpsuit with a short-sleeve top with mesh and slim-fitting pants. 

For both looks, her ombré bob is a chic complement. The black and gold sandals elevate the look as well.
  Lastly, here she is all casual in cargo pants and a black vest.  

Looking good, Mrs. Rakos!

    She looks gorgeous! This gives pple like us hope that it is possible! Lol! So scared of getting the legendary tummy overhang. The stretch marks, av already come to accept as a necessary evil. Does anyone know anything about using a belly/surgical wrap a few days after a C-section?

      Stretch Marks aren’t a necessary evil, have two kids and didn’t get a single stretch mark……always made sure I moisturized regularly and try not to give into the itching. As for using a wrap after C-Section, there is a band you can use, it is specifically for women who have had a c-Section but obviously be careful not to put it over the incision. I started wearing mine a week after I had my C-Section.

      please where can one get this band in naija? it’s been 3 months after my c-s and m tummy is still out there. i resume work next week

      Yes I do.Used one 2 days after i had my 2nd child.The hospital gave me and the nurse helped put it on while i was still there, I must say its the best thing ever.But i doubt with the surgical process in Nigeria if you can wear it immediately as i have tasted both and it is not the same.If You are planning to give birth in Nigeria i would advice you wait about a week.

    wow so proud of her revolution. there’s a lot for other female celebrities to learn from her: ride the fame wave when it’s at its peak, but have a plan! keep your eyes firmly on the ground and your head firmly on your shoulders. don’t forget what really matters and humble yourself enough to recognise the opportunity to bow out of the fame game when the opportunity comes knocking. karen was always humble. well done girl, you look good!!!

    I just don’t understand how some ppl r so lucky to loose that baby weight fast! I had a baby 8 weeks ago and I still look like a whale even though I’m breastfeeding! Where am I going wrong?!,! Help!!!

    • fabulicious

      July 19, 2015 at 7:54 pm

      my dear, mine took 6months ooo to return to pre preg weight so take it easy. Everybody’s pace is quite different. Just make sure you find time to combine some form of physical exercise at home if you have no time for a gym like skipping(wear sports bra ooo) and eat healthy but not for two.8weeks is too soon. All the best.

    • adelegirl

      July 21, 2015 at 12:56 pm

      Don’t fret dear. I think how fast you lose the baby weight depends largely on how much weight you put on whilst pregnant. Karen didn’t look like she put on a lot of weight when pregnant. Besides women’s bodies are vastly different from one another. Some people snap back almost immediately with breastfeeding, some put on weight whilst breastfeeding and need to take extra measures to lose the weight. Don’t be too hard on yourself and compare with others. Try to focus on being healthy for you and your baby. There’s ample time to lose the baby weight. Cheers!

      July 19, 2015 at 8:18 pm

      no people actually look slim few weeks after dropping especially if you are lucky not to have packed a lot of pounds on while pregnant.But if they continue eating like they did while pregnant,then they blow up.You might be lucky to loose the weight after breastfeeding.I know people advise women to eat well while pregnant,but people forget to eat healthy.So if u keep eating food that are unhealthy,the weight stays.Eating healthy plus breastfeeding will help you shed some weight.Dont beat urself up.Goodluck

    • Mooo

      July 20, 2015 at 10:53 am

      @confused , don’t feel too bad ,from experience most people dt loose baby weight very fast don’t do anything special,its just nature. Whenever I had a baby 2 to 3 days after amback to my post pregnancy body without any special diet or exercise.
      At my 6 week post natal check up .am always being ask what is my secret..So confused take it all well,it is part of God creating in differrent forms.

      July 19, 2015 at 8:06 pm

      I total agree! She looks so beautiful, happy and settled. Sometimes a private and secure life is better than the constant struggle to be famous for nothing. I hope she keeps some of the weight on, her face looks lovely filled out. And no more cosmetic surgeries, she’s had enough. Looking good mama.

    This is success, This is real Life. This is blessed life
    I am so happy for you karen. God has really blessed. Those who laughed at u are ashamed now. You are so highly blessed Karen . This is a million times better than that social life bullshyt of Lagos you were part of trying to belong. You are now a sure winner with what God has blessed you with. Stay content and never go back to that Fake Lagos Social Life. All those friends you hanged who pretended they loved you yet gossip about you on blogs and social media are now jealous of you. You have no idea how blessed you are now. That lizard looking k leg blogger who gossiped about you and opened a platform for insults rained on you on their blog (as they do many others) guess what they have millions as they claim but all they got is a room full of red bottom shoes and vibrators, batteries and their middle finger they use on themselves at note cos no man wants them.. As they continue to make money from people misery instigating Bullshyt on their blog they are cursed to be single for ever living in their room full of red bottom shoes and designer bags and clothes.

      @Felinda. Aren’t you a silly person to have the guts to post this foolishness? Red bottom, shoes vibrator and all worth nots? Do you think all single person engage in masturbation with vibrator and all the stupidness you spewed out here. There are other things in the world to enjoy besides sex, not everybody is a sex addict. Besides, being married and having children is not always a “blessing” like you think. One can be married and still be very depressed, miserable and lonely. I have nothing against Karen, but her lifestyle and they way she moved around Lagos before supposedly getting “blessed” is not what I will encourage any God fearing descent woman of God to undertake. As it written, the rain falls both on the bad and the good. I hope her supposed “blessing” and the new baby changes her for the better.

    My last word this Sunday
    To any one going thru anything and feel God has forgotten you. So far as you do your part, be good to people, and you still have life and health, don’t EVER, give up Ever, God can turn your life around in a split second, like my pastor said AND SUDDENLY, It doesn’t matter if you are 20, 30, 40, 50 etc. Just trust in Him. If u feel like crying, cry, but don’t wallow in it, just believe one day one day, He will do that 180 on you. Just be good stay faithful and treat people with a pure heart. Stay Humble and Stay Blessed every body.

      That same God is the same person blessing the “K leg blogger” who you you dissed so much in your earlier comment. Do you realise blessings don’t only come in the form of marriage or having kids? Smh. Not even sure where to start a rebuttal to all the venom you spewed. Since you mentioned God after saying all that bul****t I hope you can pray to Him to purge you of the hate which is obviously buried deep in your soul.
