What a difference three weeks makes! Coco Austin recreated a baby bump photograph on Sunday, December 20, holding her new daughter, Chanel, against her now-flat stomach to show where the baby was living before she was born.

In the photograph, which she displayed via Instagram side by side with the original snap, Coco is wearing a pair of black leggings, black stiletto heels and a pink T-shirt.

In the original photo, little Chanel, now 3 weeks old, is hidden inside her mom's very modest baby bump, just before she was born.

In the second picture, the little tot is scrunched up while she sleeps against her mom's impressively toned stomach.

"I can't believe @babychanelnicole came 3 weeks ago already," the reality star captioned the photos. "Her due date was supposed to be Dec 17th .The pic on the left was me at 37 weeks..I took that pic right before I went to the hospital to have her..I wanted it to be a special moment here not a moment where I was freaking out cuz I believe the baby feeds off your energy," she explained, adding that she was gearing up to reveal her full birth story on her blog

Ice T’s wife has been criticized since baby Chanel was born, receiving accusations that she's exploiting her daughter by sharing so many photos via social media.

But the proud mom was at her critics. “How is this exploiting her?” the reality star responded via Twitter earlier this month. “I’m proud that I’m finally a mama … does she not look happy?”
