This Pregnant Model Show Off Her Kickboxing Moves at 37 Weeks

This is how she says she makes up for sleeping in.

If you thought Chontel Duncan, the fitness model from Queensland in Australia, was gonna slow down as she got to the tail end of her pregnancy, you thought wrong. Duncan’s due to welcome her first baby — a boy  — with her husband Sam on March 30. And with one day to go ’til her 37th week, she shared the above Instagram video, in which she’s doing a seriously high-intensity kickboxing workout.

OK, sure, it’s a bit unconventional, but it’s just Duncan’s typical routine. “People think I’m harming my baby … and that I’m all about staying skinny and not nourishing my little D,” she told Us Weekly. “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.”

At the same time, she feels truly supported by many of her followers. Duncan shared in her 37-week update on Instagram, “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, and give me the respect I think I deserve for putting in the effort to maintain my habits whilst pregnant.”
