Coco Austin is really approaching her due date!
Last week, the 36-year-old revealed she was 34 weeks along, which puts her little girl’s birth in the very near future!
The model confessed:
“I almost feel like I kind of got gypped a little because women start seeing something of a baby bump at four to five months. I didn’t see anything until eight months. I was kinda feeling gypped in a way because when you’re pregnant, you want a bump. I know I’m in great shape, but I want to feel pregnant also. Finally, something is out! She’s finally showing herself and I’m loving every moment. I’m actually telling people that no doubt, I could be pregnant for the rest of my life.
I’ve been a model for my entire life and so concerned about fitness and all that good stuff but I could care less about my body, honestly. I could care less about my waist and the way I look. I just happen to be so healthy where pregnancy is really working well with my body. I love being pregnant through everything. Through feeling her inside me to going through the adjustments, I love every minute of it.”
Well, Ice-T‘s wifey has definitely been embracing the bump — and that glow!
Except that doesn’t mean she hasn’t had her fair share of haters, especially when it comes to the size of her belly at eight months. She wrote:
“In response to the critics of my small baby bump, the thing is I constantly ask my doctor, ‘Am I healthy? Is the baby healthy? What is going on? Have you seen this before?’ My doctor says yes, athletes look like this all the time because they have such strong abs muscles that it takes longer for a bump to pop out.
My doctors said they just delivered a figure skater’s baby and she was smaller than me and she squeezed that baby out in nearly three tries because her abs were so strong. Strong abs muscles may mean you’re going to have an easier delivery. When I heard that, I was like let’s cross our fingers that that happens to me.”
As long as she and the baby are healthy, that’s all that really matters!
We’re so excited for Chanel‘s arrival!!
