Ice-T and Coco Austin had an especially meaningful Thanksgiving. The couple welcomed their baby girl, Chanel Nicole, to the world a few weeks ahead of schedule.
Their rep confirms that baby Chanel was born on Saturday, November 28 at 11:47 a.m. in Englewood, New Jersey, weighing in at 5 lbs., 7 oz. “Surprise!!! Look who came early!! Welcome the new arrival of Chanel Nicole,” Austin announced on Twitter. “A beautiful healthy 5.7 pound baby girl.”
Ice later added, “Ladies and Gentlemen! Please allow me to introduce to the World … Baby Chanel 5.7 pounds. Love is Love.”
The couple revealed they were pregnant this past July during a taping of their new talk show Ice and Coco. Baby Chanel is the couple’s first child together and the third for Ice-T, 57, who is already father to adult children Tracy and Letesha from previous relationships and is a grandfather as well.
Congrats to the happy family!
