Coco Austin's Waist-Training Selfie With Her Baby Takes Multitasking to Another Level

Coco Austin

One celebrity loving motherhood is Coco Austin. The Ice & Coco talk show host is on cloud nine with her 2-month-old daughter Chanel. She hasn't missed a beat, and is finding ways to incorporate a little sexiness with being a mom. Coco's waist-training and parenting selfie definitely takes multitasking to a new level. And as you probably guessed, it's received quite a bit of backlash.


What, is this not considered multitasking? (Trying to make a joke. Love you, Coco.)

Obviously, it's not every day you see a new mother in a waist-trainer (or is it waist-cincher?), but Coco isn't your average mama. She's big on fitness, and not afraid to show off her toned physique.

So, looking at this photo again, is it really that shocking to see Coco taking a selfie in her undergarments?

At least to me, it looks like just another day at home, haha.

Some, however, aren't feeling Coco's pic on Instagram.

"Love you Coco but it makes me so uncomfortable to see you dressed like that now that you are a mother holding your baby," wrote a commenter.

"Waist trainers are really bad for your organs and having something that constructing near your breasts may complicate nursing ..." said another.

Now, I'll be the first to admit that I had some concerns in the past about Coco Austin waist-training so quickly after pregnancy. And no, I'm not a keyboard-happy critic who's waiting for any and every parent to "mess up." Personally, it's something I wouldn't really do. I've heard too many waist-training risks to even think about trying it.

With that said, I think it's important not to brand a mother who does waist-train as an unfit parent. It's her body, and her decision. Coco Austin has received way too much hate as is for her mommy choices -- and her daughter is barely 2 months!

Coco looks amazeballs after giving birth (you sure as hell wouldn't see me in my unmentionables). Sexiness is her brand, and if she wants to snap a photo of herself looking all sorts of snatched, that's her right to do so.
