Coco is ready to pop!
The mom-to-be, who is currently expecting her first child with husband Ice-T, is about to give birth. Wearing a leopard print bra and matching leggings, the 36-year-old cradles her bare baby bump in her latest pregnancy update, showing fans her belly in all its nine months pregnant glory.
“I’m really glad about all the choices I’ve made so far while pregnant.. I’ve eaten really heathly.. A lot of watermelon and frozen yogurt!” Coco writes in another Instagram post. I’ve only gained 10 pounds but was fit before pregnancy.. tight abs proved to keep my tummy from getting super big even though I really didn’t care how big I got I was totally ready for this rollercoaster ride even if I gained 100 pounds I was mentally ready.”
What’s her secret to keeping fit during her pregnancy? According to Coco, she’s keeping with her exercise routine but has switched to less intense workouts during her later months.
“Yoga, Pilates & walking on treadmill were great during this time because its not strenuous.” she says. “Chanel is the average weight for a girl at #36weeks estimating somewhere in the 5 pound range and still have 4 weeks to go!”
The model previously defended her small baby bump and explained that its common for pregnant women with strong abdominal muscles to not start showing until later in their pregnancy.
“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,” she said. “My doctor said there is no need to worry. I’m constantly in my doctor’s office every week asking ‘Is everything okay?’ As long as my doctor is saying everything is okay, I’m not going to go by strangers who don’t have the education of my doctor.”
Take that, haters.
