Coco Austin is back to showing off her body.

And telling off her critics.

Coco Austin and Ice-T

The relatively new mother of one enjoyed a night out with husband Ice-T on New Year’s Eve, with the rapper/Law & Order: SVU star sharing the above romantic photo and including with it a caption that reads:

"It’s New Years Eve & Coco and my 15th Anniversary. Happy 2016!!! Keep it Gangsta."

But online critics apparently decided to keep up their questioning of Austin as a parent instead, taking to social media and letting the busty blonde have it for her scantily-clad outfit choice.

"I keep reading these stupid articles & ppl commenting that when u become a mother u have to stop dressing sexy.. oh please!" Coco Tweeted on Sunday, adding:

"Me dressing the way I want to will not interfere with me raising my child."

Coco can apparently now relate to Kim Kardashian, who received harsh rebuke for setting a bad example after posing naked for Paper Magazine shortly after becoming a mother.

But this isn’t the first time Coco has been under fire since welcoming daughter Chanel into the world in November.

Because she has been posing non-stop on Instagram with the baby, even doing so topless at one point, some folks out there believe Coco is exploiting her child for attention and fame.

What does Austin have to say to those haters?

"I don’t have nannies or babysitters," she wrote last month. "I’ve been 100% hands on w/ Chanel. I also clean my own house & do my own laundry #100%wife."

Here is a look at the photos that have stirred up such controversy:
