Ice-T and Coco welcomed a baby girl on Saturday, Nov. 28, according to TMZ. After only one day old, Chanel Nicole has her own Instagram page with more than 75,000 followers already. The proud parents have shared photos of their little bundle of joy since the moment she was born. From the photos, we can see that little Chanel Nicole has inherited her daddy’s dimple.
E! Online reported that the talk show host and husband Ice-T became parents of their first child together on Saturday morning. Coco wrote on her daughter’s Instagram page that Chanel Nicole came early weighing in at 5.7 pounds and 18 inches. Coco added, “I cried while she was coming out I was so excited to meet her!” Less than four hours before Chanel Nicole was born, Coco had predicted that her baby would come early. She called it a mother’s intuition.
Coco has been documenting her journey to parenthood in several pregnancy blogs. The 36-year-old said she was excited about having a girl so she can have her own personal doll to dress up with cute fashions. She said she never had a doll in her life and she stated, “So this is my first real life doll.” Ice-T, 57, has an adult daughter and son from two other relationships, but this is the first child for Coco.
Before the baby was born, people on social media questioned whether Coco was really pregnant because of her smaller than expected baby bump. Coco silenced the doubters by posting a few revealing baby bump photos. Both parents are thrilled that Coco had a smooth delivery, and they have a healthy baby especially since it was a “high-risk pregnancy.” They have had a baby name picked out for the last 10 years. Coco concludes, “God is on my side and he gave me what I wanted and I’m grateful.”
