On June 2, 2022, TV personality and rapper Chanel West Coast revealed that she is pregnant. Although she still doesn't know the gender of her baby, she prays for a happy and healthy kid.

Chanel admitted to being excited for the next chapter in her life, which she described as the "scariest." The first three months of her pregnancy were uneventful as she only experienced nausea. Still, she said pregnancy was not "as glamorous" as some people picture it.

WHO IS CHANEL WEST COAST?

Born in Los Angeles in September 1988, Chanel West Coast grew up between her dad's New York City home and her mom's property in North Hollywood, California.

She fell in love with music at a young age, mainly because her father is a DJ. Chanel began rapping at 14, and her biggest inspiration was Tupac and his 1996 single "How Do U Want It."

In 2012, she signed a contract with Lil Wayne's record label, Young Money Entertainment, and released her first studio album, "America's Sweetheart," in October 2020.

Chanel is best known for her career in music and co-hosting "Ridiculousness," but she is also a model. She made her modeling debut in 2017 when she appeared multiple times in Maxim magazine.

While Chanel knows how to pose and get in the best angles for the pictures, she said that watching what she eats and finding the clothes that flatter her body were also crucial to succeed in the modeling industry.

Chanel's boyfriend, Dom Fenison, is also into modeling. Signed to DT Model Management, agents discovered him during his college years when he worked as a bartender.

Fenison and Chanel met several years ago, but she never saw him as more than a friend. They eventually reconnected, and Fenison starred in her "Vinyl" music video, released on Valentine's Day 2022.

Sparks flew when they worked together, and they eventually decided to give love a try. Chanel described her boyfriend as the smartest, classiest, and most well-rounded person she has met.

Fenison also praised his girlfriend. After saying Chanel was genuine, he added that the way we often see her on TV is very far from the "depth of the person" she is.

CHANEL WEST COAST HAS HER MOTHER AS AN EXAMPLE

Chanel didn't have the perfect childhood. Her parents separated when she was just a girl, and she had to live a bi-coastal life. Still, her biggest role model is her mother.

The singer knows that her mom worked hard to pull her family through challenging times and keep them afloat. Having her as an example made Chanel a hard-working, honest, and loving person, and she wouldn't be Chanel West Coast without her mother. Congratulations on the baby news!
