On Saturday, September 4, 2021, Coleen took to Instagram with some never-before-seen pregnancy photos, two of which showed the stretch marks she had during her pregnancy.
The 28-year-old actress was emotional as she looked back on her pregnancy experience.
Coleen wrote in the caption of her post: "Some photos from my pregnancy that I never got to share. [emoji]
"It’s September!!! I’ve been reminiscing and looking through old photos of this time when it was still just the two of us, and oh how different everything was!
"We really had no idea what we were in for, not just by having a baby, but by having a baby during THIS time."
Towards the end of her post, Coleen said that giving birth to baby Amari feels like it just happened yesterday, even if her life has changed so much in the past year.
"Still in the middle of a pandemic. Either way, life has been more vibrant than ever, and time really does fly.
"I’m somewhere between 'It’s been a year already?!' and 'It’s only been a year?!' [emoji] and to think I haven’t even made it to the Day 1 Amari photos yet. I’ll cry.[emoji]"
Coleen's husband Billy Crawford showed his appreciation for her in the comments section.
