Coco Austin wants bigger bump

Coco Austin wishes she had a bigger baby bump.

The 36-year-old reality star is eight months pregnant with her first child - a daughter she and husband Ice T plan to name Chanel - and her shape is only just beginning to change, which the blonde beauty thinks is because she is in such "great shape".

She said: "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."

Coco is hoping her trim physique means she will have an "easier" time when it comes to giving birth to her little girl.

In her blog for E! News, she added: "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."
