Ice T, 57, and Nicole “Coco” Austin, 36, have welcomed their first child together.
Reps confirm Coco gave birth 11:47 a.m. Saturday in Englewood, New Jersey (the baby came early following a high-risk pregnancy). The baby weighed 5 lbs., 7 oz.
Coco confirmed the baby girl’s name weeks ago: Chanel Nicole.
Previously Coco talked about expecting her first child.
“I think it’s time. I think I’m in that stage in my life where I need this,” she revealed. “I’ve done everything in my life pretty much career-wise and … I’ve been in a happy marriage for 15 years. It feels really, really good.”
She added, “It’s time for me to make this big jump. I can’t wait to have a little character running around the house. It’s just meant to be.”
The pair shared a baby photo (below) on Twitter.
Coco tweeted “Surprise!!! Look who came early!! Welcome the new arrival of Chanel Nicole.. A beautiful healthy 5.7 pound baby girl”.
Ice T tweeted “Ladies and Gentlemen! Please allow me to introduce to the World…. Baby Chanel 5.7 pounds. Love is Love.”
Ice T has adult children, Tracy and Letesha, from previous relationships.
