Ice T, 57, and wife Nicole “Coco” Austin, 36, are expecting a baby together!
The couple were last on the small screen together in 2013 for their reality show, Ice Loves Coco. They will return to our screens for their own talk show, Ice & Coco.
Coco reveals: “I’ve been pregnant for a while, but we’ve been holding it between us for some time.”
Audiences at Friday’s taping of Ice & Coco were some of the first to learn about the pregnancy.
“It was a really awesome moment. I cried,” recalls Coco. “It was a nice feeling to know that the world knows and I don’t have to hide it.”
“[We’ll share] all the juicy details: How far along I am, the gender,” added Coco.
Was it hard to get pregnant? “It wasn’t a big deal. It was actually shocking how easily it happened,” Coco admitted. “It’s beautiful how life actually works. Now that I have a little thing inside of me moving around, it’s amazing.”
The reveal will air during the August 3 season premiere.
The pair have been married since 2001 and this is their first baby together. Ice T has two kids from a previous relationship.
In 2012, doctors revealed Coco’s blood pressure was too high to safely carry a baby. Now her health is under control.
The pair happily tweeted to fans about their news:
