Is that you, Coco Austin?

The 36-year-old hottie spent some time on Monday reminiscing about the beginning of her modeling career, even sharing her first magazine cover on Instagram.

The photo featured the bikini-clad blonde on the cover of Swimwear International from 1997 -- and she’s barely recognizable.

“My first mag cover! Wow look at them roots! I was 18 here in '97 This is when I slowly started dyeing my hair blonde.. I called it Peanut Butter back then..This was taken in Greece,” she captioned the throwback photo.

This isn't the first vintage pic the new mom has shared on her Instagram.

“I get such a kick at looking at my old modeling pics,” she captioned another one of herself in an itty-bitty yellow bikini. “This was taken in Hawaii 2 years before I met Ice which makes me 20 years old in this pic!! God, my waist was 19 inches back then and look, I was rocking the same micro bikinis that I do now! So to clarify this was 16 years ago!”

“Looking back through old pics.. I was 20 here shot in Maui..16 years goes by fast,” she captioned another snap.
