The 36-year-old recently revealed to Us Weekly that even she understands her pregnant belly was a smaller size than those of most expecting mommas.
So, the blonde beauty confessed she isn't surprised she got a lot of sh*t for the way she looked even nine months along, saying:
"When I look at pictures of myself, I would second-guess that person too! My friends were like, 'Wait until the last month: Your bump is really gonna pop!' But then I was nine months and I looked like I was just six months."
But, while she understands her baby body shamers' perspective, the blonde still defends her unique situation, adding:
"Not every woman has the same pregnancy. I don't really know what to say other than I have nothing to prove, and she's here now."
And, the reasons the new momma lost a lot of weight during her pregnancy are actually pretty valid ones! Ice-T's lady love lost muscle mass and cut out alcohol. She explained:
"I'm a bodybuilder, but I had to stop because my doctor told me early on that the baby was sitting very low, almost to the point that if I squatted, I could promote labor. I always end my day with a glass of wine or a cocktail. As soon as I got pregnant, I cut that off."
However, the gorgeous gal admitted she couldn't care less about maintaining her fit figure right now, commenting:
"This is the one time in my life that I don't give a damn about my body."
Besides, after all the drama Chanel Nicole turned out just fine!
