Coco Austin is defending her baby bump in new blog posts for E! News. The reality TV star is documenting her pregnancy and the changes her body is going through even though she faced criticism for her small baby bump!
“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,” Coco explained.

Coco wanted to set the record straight on her barely-there bump as she faced speculation she wasn’t actually expecting. “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.

The model won’t let haters keep her from enjoying every single moment of motherhood. She insisted, “I'm not going to try and prove a point anymore. You're going to believe what you want. My whole life I've faced rumors like ‘You can't have that butt, it must be implants' or ‘your waist is so small, you must have had a rib taken out.' Everything that I do is unbelievable.”
