Have you been following Coco and Ice-T as they prepare for the arrival of their baby girl? One thing Coco has been getting some flak for (unbelievably, in my opinion) is her tiny baby bump. She was one of those women who didn’t “pop” until her third trimester. It happens! Coco wrote about it.
Coco wrote in a blog:
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’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…
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…
So there you have it, folks. That’s why Coco has such a small baby bump. And, hey, if she’s healthy, does it matter? The judgment never stops! I know women who aren’t athletic who didn’t have much of a baby bump until their third trimester. It’s not unheard of. You can read Coco’s entire blog post at E! Online.
Coco also announced a baby blog on her website:
Its finally up!!! My baby blog at TheCocoBlog.com ..Its taken along time to put up cuz I practically wrote a mini book about my life, pre-Ice, pre-Chanel.

She also gave a short update on how her pregnancy is going:
I hit my 34 week mark into pregnancy! -Why does Max always got to be in my pics and then looks at me crazy? He really is my little security guard never leaves my side….. Pregnancy is still going unbelievably smooth ! I have a little battle with heart burn but nothing to complain about.. Craving a lot more sweets than normal like frozen yogurt and #chanelnicole is a little over 4 pounds already! She moving even more now doing tumbling tricks or something like that because she’s very active and it feels like she doing somersaults in my tummy but then totally let’s me sleep at night.. And a funny thing too is my belly button is starting to poke out a bit. I think its cute. Just thought I might give you a weekly update!
