A true cause for celebration! Chontel Duncan rec-reated her viral baby-bump comparison photo with her pal Nat in a picture she shared to Instagram on Wednesday, May 18 — but this time with both women’s baby boys in tow.
“Had a lovely surprise visit from Nat & baby Charlie,” the 27-year-old model captioned the split shot. “Omg his baby blue eyes are so beautiful. Wish I could have cuddled & kissed him but I’m not 100% well yet (hence my rank face). Two healthy incredible pregnancies & now two healthy baby boys.”
The Aussie beauty gave birth to her own son, Jeremiah Thomas, on Friday, March 25. The little guy weighed a healthy 7 pounds, 13 ounces at birth.
“Healthy happy baby boy, absolutely nothing medically wrong with bubba, he is extremely alert and very strong shocking the staff here with his arms and neck strength,” she wrote in a post to Instagram on March 28.
Duncan, who works as a high-intensity interval trainer at HIIT Australia gym, received plenty of backlash throughout her pregnancy for her tiny baby bump. In her original viral photo from November, she showed off her flat belly with her friend Nat’s much bigger bump, and noted that her pal’s pregnancy was only four weeks further along.
“Each woman carries different and this most certainly doesn’t mean one is doing something wrong or not healthy,” she captioned the photo. “We both have healthy growing babies.”
“I’m extremely tall, I’m 6-foot-1,” Duncan told Us Weekly of why she carried her baby weight differently. “My torso is very long and my core strength is very strong. People think I’m harming my baby … and that I’m all about staying skinny and not nourishing my little D. I know it’s hard to believe that someone can carry a child the way I am, but in reality, a lot of women carry like me.”
