Viral Abs-Tastic Preggo Model Chontel Duncan Reveals Newborn Baby

The expectant mom who went viral for her surprisingly fit body introduces her newborn to the world.

Aussie fitness model Chontel Duncan was surprised to find that a pic she posted alongside her pregnant friend had gone viral. And the reason it went viral was because of her caption: "We worked out that we are 4 weeks apart," she wrote. "Nat's due start of March and I'm due end of March." That really wouldn't startle most people... until they've seen the difference in bellies!


As expected, the Internet blew up. While some congratulated her on remaining so fit and healthy, others blasted her for “being selfish.” Either way, many continued to follow the ripped pregger's beauty on social media, and it literally only gets better as the weeks continue:

BUMP UPDATE 🍼 37 weeks.... Only 21 days to go 🙈 Well well Little D you have caused quiet a commotion, you are most certainly making your entrance into this world noticeable. But seriously "what a week" 😳 did not expect that, can not believe how many people are apparently doctors, how easily people can slam a pregnant women, but more importantly how INCREDIBLE absolute strangers are. I don't think there are any words that could describe just how humbled I am to see absolute strangers support my lifestyle, pregnancy, my unborn child & give me the respect I think I deserve for putting in the effort to maintain my habits whilst pregnant. For a women to consider falling pregnant is a HUGE decision it's a permanent decision, not just the physical demands, the risk, but you're preparing to sacrifice your very being to be this little persons everything for as long as you live. Then there's conceiving, you couldn't feel more pressure if you tried, it's extremely difficult for so many women, I am extremely grateful I fell first go, but I am close to so many whom have struggled greatly. Now you're pregnant the physical changes, the tests & the realisation that it's happening is prominent. What if you're told at 12 weeks your child is at great risk or what if you miscarry 😕 it's emotionally hectic!!!! You get through all that & you know that from here on out what you feel emotionally the baby will feel, you know what you eat the baby will eat & you know that your physical health will impact the babies as he/she develops within. You make everyday the best so at the end of the journey you can hold your head high I know that you brought this little person up the best possible way you could... You realise that school did NOT set you up to understand child birth or how to prepare for a child, so you walk into this overwhelming world of preparing for parenthood. So much to learn... 😩 BUT wait then there's critics, well in my case a lot of them. They pick and pull you apart, I had ppl at the beginning excited to see me blow out, see me quit at my career because apparently it's not possible to do both...

BUMP UPDATE 🍼 39 weeks.... Only 7 days to go 🙈 I have hung up the gloves & sneakers 👊🏽👟🙅🏾 Had my last session Monday night, absolutely LOVED it, had great energy, flexibility & recovery... but my instincts told me that this should be my last @hiit_australia class. It's hard to explain but you just know your body & it's almost like you have this bizarre connection with it where it tells you... Anyways I am proud of my journey, SO proud of Little D & couldn't have wished for a better experience. Now for the waiting game till our D Day! My husband has been incredible, foot rubs, sneaking off to work so I get a sleep in, making sure everything is ready, always turning up to our OB appts with a bucket full of Q's, going over everything we need to do when the day finally arrives & always asking me how I an his son are. Seriously couldn't have done it without him ☺️ My final challenge is accepting that I have to take time off from work, I can't run the classes, can't train in them, can't control the office & oversee that everything is running smoothly... I have other priorities now & until Little D arrives I cannot structure or plan out a new routine until then. I have no idea how I will make it work, but I just know it will. I love my job, I love the atmosphere, I love the people, I love being productive, busy & achieving. So now it's time to step out for a second & challenge myself to master running a business whilst being the best mum a possibly can for my little man. Is crazy to think that soon I won't have my bump...🙁 Little D I cannot wait to meet you 🤗 "First glimpse of him will be on my snap chat chontelduncan"

As Chontel points out in her original post, it’s completely healthy for women of different shapes and sizes to carry their babies differently. Even more to the point, women who are already fit and who work out on the daily can safely continue their routine into pregnancy. It doesn’t make you selfish to care about your body and your baby at the same time.

However, she is a fitness model. What’s normal for her is like, hell for another expectant mom! Just a week ago--several days prior to giving birth-- she posted another one of her rigorous strength and boxing workouts, called HIIT.

Just a few days later, the world's curiosity came to an end when she posted this pic of her newborn son Jeremiah with the caption: "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. Absolute champion on the boob & feeding very regularly no problem." 


She delivered just a few weeks after her friend, who appeared with her on the Australian morning talk show Sunrise. They both took the time to discuss the controversy and what many people have gotten wrong about the ordeal. I'm just glad to see that both situations ended well for the mamas. Congrats!
