Australian fitness model Chontel Duncan is getting a kick out of her pregnancy.

Chontel, a former Miss Universe finalist, is 37 weeks pregnant with her first child, but she's still fighting for her body in a serious way.

The brunette beauty shared a video of her kickboxing, yes, kickboxing, with a personal trainer with her very noticeable baby bump.

"Made up for sleeping in this morning by smashing poor Cody @hiit_australia #37weekstomorrow #comeonlittled," she captioned a video showing her smashing and bashing boxing pads.

The model is due at the end of March.

She first made headlines in November after Instagramming a photo of her and a friend who was four week further along than her, but Chontel's baby bump looks significantly smaller and her body was very much in shape.

"I'm extremely tall, I'm 6-foot-1," she told Us Weekly as people criticized her for her thin appearance, considering her pregnancy. "My torso is very long and my core strength is very strong."

She continued: "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."

She's right. Just ask model Sarah Stage, who stunned the Internet last year with her small bump, but had a healthy baby boy, although many social media trolls continued to blast her.

On March 9, Chontel gave an update on her pregnancy, touching on everything from her critics to her health. At the time she said she had 21 days left of her pregnancy.

BUMP UPDATE 🍼 37 weeks.... Only 21 days to go πŸ™ˆ 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 πŸ˜• 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...

In her lengthy caption, she said her critics picked her apart and people were "excited to see me blow out, see me quit at my career because apparently it's not possible to [be a fitness model and be pregnant]."

Of her pregnancy journey she said, "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…"
