Besides being a constant fixture in the rap scene and on the big screen, rapper Ice-T, also known as Tracy Lauren Marrow, is a proud husband to his wife, model Coco Austin. He is also a proud dad to his daughter, Chanel Marrow.

Ice-T and Coco have been happily married for 17 years, and their union has become even more joyful since they welcomed their first child together in 2015. Chanel and her famous father share the same physical attributes.

EXPECTING AND GIVING BIRTH TO CHAN

Ice-T and Coco Austin revealed the news they were expecting while taping for their show "Ice and Coco" in July 2015. The pair also announced they were having a baby girl and shared the name they had chosen for her shortly after that.

Chanel is Coco's first child with Ice-T, who's already a father to two grown children, Tracy and Letesha, from his previous relationships. The model was 36 years old when she was pregnant with her first child.

She was reportedly told by doctors her pregnancy could be high-risk, which was because of high blood pressure. Coco then decided to reevaluate her health so her body would be in a "healthy zone."

The mother of one once revealed in an interview with People her plans to raise a stylish daughter and said at the time that Chanel already had a "vast collection of shoes." The new mom said she wanted her baby's lifestyle to be similar to hers and even talked about getting Chanel a nice closet since she also has one.

The TV personality further said she was ready to embrace motherhood as she had done most things in her life regarding her career and was happily married. She said being a mom is another stage in her life, and she couldn't wait to watch a child "running around the house." Coco told People:

"I think I'm in that stage in my life where I need this. I've done everything in my life pretty much career-wise. It's time for me to make this big jump. It's just meant to be."

BREASTFEEDING DISCUSSION

Besides looking alike, Chanel also seems to have inherited her father's fearlessness. Recently, four photos of Chanel were uploaded to her Instagram alongside a message which read:

"Apparently mommy and I have been trending lately... a lot more love than hate but still some mommy shaming out there [sic]!!"

The message comes after online users called out Coco for her decision to continue breastfeeding her five-year-old daughter. It is not the first time the former web personality faced such controversy.

Coco shared that many people have questioned her decision to continue breastfeeding her daughter, but their unsolicited opinions do not matter anymore to the "Ice & Coco" star.

Since her daughter was born, she has been open about her breastfeeding experience. In 2019, Coco posted on Instagram photos of herself nursing then-four-year-old Chanel on board a private plane.

The doting mom shared that the first week after Chanel was born, she had difficulty breastfeeding her. She was on the verge of giving up, but her family told her to hang on for another week.

Coco later overcame the challenge. Years later, Chanel still wants to be breastfed. Even though Coco continues to nurse her child, she feels relieved her daughter eats regular food like steak and hamburgers.

Chanel's adorable appearance in the photos proved she is Ice-T's mini version.

If Chanel does not wish to be breastfed anymore, the doting mom will cease to do so. But when that day comes, Coco would certainly feel sad since she considers breastfeeding her most fulfilling experience.

SOCIAL MEDIA USERS' FEEDBACK ON HER DECISION

However, several social media users felt disturbed by Coco's decision to continue breastfeeding her little girl. Others remarked that the 43-year-old TV star nursing her daughter looked offensive and sexual.

Ice-T flatly denounced online users' harsh remarks toward his wife amid the breastfeeding drama. The protective father reiterated that their daughter also eats solid food.

A statement was also posted on Chanel's Instagram expressing that she is just living her life. Her family lives in a bubble of love, and negative comments do not affect them.

"We're not changing our life for u [sic]," the post read. The four pictures showed the charming little girl smiling and serving serious looks while facing a digital tablet on the table.

Concerned followers suggested that her family should ignore the criticisms. Another noted that people should not shame Coco as she is doing a normal thing, adding, "Breastfeeding is a beautiful journey."

Meanwhile, Coco thanked her supporters, who defended her, saying that to nurse a baby is to provide love and strengthen the bond between mother and child. She also refuses to give haters any of her time.

Controversy has followed Coco numerous times due to her parenting style. She once posted a photo of her daughter on Instagram on school picture day, and Chanel was wearing nail extensions. Coco received a lot of backlashes yet again for the post, which she captioned by saying, "For the special occasion, I let Chanel do mini tips to her nails.."

The 43-year-old mom has also been scrutinized for breastfeeding Chanel, who was five then. During an interview with Us Weekly, Coco revealed she was still breastfeeding her daughter and further expressed, "It's a big bonding moment for a mother and your child."
