New mom Coco Austin is not taking any criticism.

Austin, who's married to rapper and actor Ice-T, is known for dressing up and -- in her words -- "dressing sexy." But now that she's a mother, critics think Austin should leave the scandalous outfits behind and spend every waking second with her newborn daughter, Chanel Nicole.

Austin sounded off on her haters in a new blog for E! News, letting them know that even though she's a mom, she's still the same old Coco. 

"First of all, everybody should know who Coco is by now," Austin wrote. "Really? I'm never going to pop up with a sweatsuit. It's just not going to happen. I don't know why it amazes people. I think I've toned down throughout the years. I've settled down in so many ways." 

Never mind the fact that Austin doesn't need to settle down -- unless of course, she wants to. But one thing she's never going to do? Stop wearing the tight clothes she loves. 

"I just want to look put together," Austin said. "Even though I have a baby, I can still put on makeup, do my hair and get my nails and be put together by my outfit. I'm not overdoing it. It's the way my personality is. It's not like I'm going to be in a moo-moo tomorrow. People need to get over that."

Austin and Ice-T welcomed their first child together in November 2015.

"Ice and I are so proud!" Austin captioned her first Instagram of Chanel. "I cried while she was coming out I was so excited to meet her!"
