Coco Austin still breastfeeds her and husband Ice-T’s 3-year-old daughter, Chanel Nicole, on occasion. The celebrity father delves into life at home with his wife and toddler.
“Coco absolutely breastfeeds because she just wanted that mama connection with the baby,” Ice-T says of his wife’s decision to nurse her little one at 3-years-old. “Chanel doesn’t breastfeed,” Ice clarifies, “but [Chanel] wants the boob sometimes. It’s a moment where it’ll calm you down. But when people say, ‘Oh, Coco’s still breastfeeding.’ It’s not that. Chanel’s drinking everything in the refrigerator right now. She went to formula and other things. It’s more of a baby’s way of getting comfort from the mother.”
Chanel also sleeps with mom and dad. “Chanel’s still in the bed with us now,” Ice-T shares. “She worked her way into the bed. But we love it! The thing is, she sleeps in her room but as soon as she wakes up, she’s on her way up to us anyway. We put her to sleep in her bedroom and then maybe 2, 3 in the morning, she might wake up.”
The holidays are something special in Ice-T and Coco Austin’s home. “I let Coco set the tone and then I try to coordinate based on her, so I wait and figure out what she’s going to do,” Ice-T says of decorating for the holidays. “This will be the first year [Chanel will] really understand Christmas is coming.” How exciting is that?
