Coco Austin Tears Up After Ice-T Gushes Over Baby Chanel
By Philiana Ng
Ice-T is one doting father.
The Law & Order: SVU star was a guest on the Final Level podcast on Friday and he couldn’t help but marvel over his baby girl Chanel and his wife Coco Austin. Since the birth of the couple’s newborn, Coco hasn’t been shy about sharing every update with her legions of followers online.
“We’re just proud parents and [nowadays] you can put it all on the net for everybody to see,” Ice-T said. “We’ve had all this response – as much as there’s haters out there, 99.99 percent are nothing but love.”
He was appreciative of all the support he and his wife have been getting less than two weeks after welcoming Chanel on Nov. 28.
“Everybody is saying the nicest stuff. Nobody is saying anything negative,” Ice-T said. “We are so happy and so pleased by the response from the people out there -- all the love.”
The 57-year-old actor-rapper, who has two adult children from previous relationships, was candid about the significance of baby Chanel in his life.
“At this point, I didn’t really know what was going to make me excited. Like, another hit record? No. Another show? No,” he admitted. “I’ve been really fortunate but this was something that really made me say ‘Wow.’”
