— -- Coco Austin is basking in her new role as mother, but that hasn't stopped some from attacking her parenting skills.

Now the 36-year-old reality star is firing back just weeks after she and her husband, rapper/actor Ice-T, welcomed daughter Chanel.

"Some comments really frustrate me at times," Austin wrote on Twitter Monday. "Some assume since u have money and live in a 'celebrity world' that you don’t do s***!"

Austin didn’t stop there.

Let me add, I don't have nannies or babysitters. I've been 100% hands on w/Chanel. I also clean my own house & do my own laundry #100%wife

She ended her rant with:

I'm totally serious when I say I love being a wife.I like the role I play..I can be crazy coco at times but I have a good heart

Just as she documented her road to parenthood, Austin has been sharing her first days with Chanel on social media -- even creating her daughter's own Instagram account.

That has led to some criticism from fans, who earlier accused her of exploiting her daughter.

"Coco darling, don’t exploit your newborn beautiful lil angel," one follower wrote on Austin's Facebook page less than a week after the star gave birth. "I say with respect honey."

Austin fired back.

"How is this exploiting her?" she wrote. "I’m proud that I’m finally a mama...does she not look happy?"
