Coco Austin faced a firestorm of criticism after posting a side-by-side photo of her body at nine months pregnant and her post-baby slimdown.

Coco told INSIDE EDITION: “If I was looking at pictures of myself, I would be second-guessing that person too.”


1 week post baby ..the left was me at 36 weeks ( I had Chanel at 37 weeks) I was basically in shape before I got pregnant but during pregnancy I stopped my workout regimen at 4 months preggers and pretty much became a fruitarian after that lol..No not really, I ate other foods of course but craved fruit. I lost 10 pounds before I even started to gain baby weight probably because 1- I stopped drinking alcohol. 2 - I stopped weight lifting and lost a lot of muscle and 3- I ate really healthy and took my vitamins everyday.(I'm gonna post my whole routine soon on my baby blog I gained 13 pounds my whole pregnancy and now I way almost back to norm at 137 pounds. All this is strange to me too, how my body took so well with pregnancy because I was mentally prepared to blow up like a whale and I was totally cool with it I really could have cared less how my body looked it didn't matter to me..I couldn't wait to get a bump and rock it! ..I would've gone through anything to make a healthy baby ..I had the heavens really watching over me and know everyday how blessed I am.. I believe anybody could too go through a wonderful experience and thats why I made a baby blog so people could know the steps I took..I hope to bring inspiration

Internet trolls sniped at her, saying: “She did not have that baby it's all a lieeeeeeeee."

Others wrote: "Tummy tuck" and "she has a plastic surgeon on speed dial.”

But the 36-year-old only gained 13 pounds during her pregnancy. Little Chanel Nicole was born at five pounds, seven ounces.

“I thought I was going to blow up like a whale,” she said.
