Coco Gives Birth, Welcomes Baby Girl Chanel With Ice-T (PHOTO)
Coco gave birth to baby girl Chanel on Saturday! Check out the first photo below!
Coco and husband Ice-T both announced the joyous news on social media. Coco wrote alongside an Instagram photo of her newborn, “Surprise!!! Look who came early!! Welcome the new arrival of Chanel Nicole.” The new mom described her little one as a “beautiful healthy 5.7 pound and 18 inch baby girl.
“Ice and I are so proud,” continued Coco. “I cried while she was coming out I was so excited to meet her!” For his part, Ice-T tweeted the same photo of baby Chanel, and wrote, “Ladies and Gentlemen! Please allow me to introduce to the World…. Baby Chanel 5.7 pounds. Love is Love.”
As Gossip Cop reported, the couple announced they were expecting on the premiere episode of their talk show “Ice & Coco” in July. In the months since, Coco has repeatedly been forced to defend her pregnancy body, as many took issue with the small size of her baby bump. In fact, back in September, Gossip Cop called out MediaTakeOut for sensationally claiming she was “faking her pregnancy.”
Earlier this week, Coco revealed she was nearly 37 weeks along, and shared a photo showing her belly had grown quite a bit. While this is her first child, it’s the third for Ice-T, who is also dad to daughter LeTesha and son Ice Tracy. Coco and Ice-T have been married since 2001. The new parents are pictured above at their “pre-birthday party” baby shower for Chanel in October. See the first photo of the baby girl below!
