Ice T and Coco Austin Expecting First Child Together

The 57-year-old rapper is already the father of two and a grandfather.

Soon there could be more of Ice T and Coco Austin to love. The couple is expecting their first child together, which they confirmed to Fox 5's Good Day New York. Coco has been outspoken about wanting children with her hubby for years, and the subject was a frequent topic of conversation on their reality show, Ice Loves Coco. The rapper, 57, is already a father of two and even has a 20-year-old grandson.


Back in 2012, doctors told Coco on camera that her high blood pressure would make it difficult for her to safely carry a child. She has reportedly been on her A-game to get her health in order since the eye-opening diagnosis, and may have finally gotten her wish.
Looks like things are back on track on the marriage front, too, since the rumors in 2013 that the couple was on the rocks. At the time, rapper AP.9 released photos of himself looking too-close-for-comfort with T's wife while she was in Las Vegas.
