Coco also enthusiastically added that Ice-T “and I are so proud!” Austin told fans that she “cried while [Chanel] was coming out I was so excited to meet her!” We certainly share Coco and Ice-T’s enthusiasm!
Just hours before she gave birth, Austin claimed she knew Chanel would arrive early, posting on social media that her “baby is coming early,” and she knew by “a mothers intuition. #ChanelNicole is trying to make her appearance,” reports the Daily Mail.
In a follow up post over social media, Coco and Ice-T thanked fans “so much for all the warm wishes today,” assuring the world that she is “doing great!” Coco Austin also confessed that she and Ice-T “had the best delivery!,” and mentioned that she will miss being pregnant.

“I really enjoyed the experience,” Austin wrote to fans.
According to Coco Austin, she “pushed Chanel out in 3 tries!” In another photo which Austin said “was taken not 5 minutes after delivery” showed the new mother in “skin to skin contact” with the newborn. Coco told fans it was “better for a more bonding experience.”
Throughout her pregnancy, Coco Austin has been very open with fans, and told Us magazine that her goal “was to make pregnancy look positive, fashionable, cute, fit and healthy every step of the way.”
Of course, one reason Coco is so excited about her new daughter is she was told in 2012 that she could not have children. Us reports that in 2012, Austin tearfully revealed on her E! reality show that doctors told her that her blood pressure was too high to safely carry a child.
Coco also came under fire during her pregnancy by detractors who believed she was not actually pregnant because her belly was so small. According to Coco, she asked her doctor several times if it was normal, reports the Daily Mail, and Austin confessed that her “doctor says yes, athletes look like this all the time because they have such strong abs muscles that it takes longer for a bump to pop out.”

Although her stomach was barely visible, other areas of her body proved her pregnancy was no joke. “I know my boobs are getting enormous,” Austin tweeted in September. “They won’t stop growing. Pregnancy boobs for me are on another level!”
Little Chanel Nicole Austin already has a large social media following, with 8,500 Twitter followers and over 11,500 Instagram followers. Just hours after her birth, the Twitter account @BabyChanelWorld popped up, with a photo of the sleeping infant.
The cute caption on the photo of baby Chanel read “Ok! I’m the newest on Twitter! What’s crackin world!! No haters allowed…”
Ice-T also shared a photo of Chanel, captioning the precious snap “I decided I’d be the Youngest girl with a Twitter page.. What’s up!! I’m ready to ROCK!” reports the Daily Mail.
