Coco & Ice-T Welcome Daughter Chanel Nicole



    In this file photo, rapper Ice-T and Coco Austin attend the Z100 Jingle Ball 2014 after party presented by GTA and Pierre Toma at Space Ibiza on December 12, 2014 in New York City.

    Ice-T and Coco have shared new pics of their newborn daughter, Chanel Nicole, including a sweet family selfie taken minutes after the child's birth.

    The 36-year-old model cuddles the sleeping child on her bare breast, covered in a white blanket, as her husband, 57, is seen next to them, grinning from ear to ear.

    Ice-T and Coco announced the birth of their little girl, who arrived early, on Saturday and shared a first photo of the child. She was born at the Englewood Hospital and Medical Center in New Jersey.

    "Thanks so much for all the warm wishes today," Coco wrote on Instagram. "I'm doing great! I had the best delivery! I pushed Chanel out in 3 tries! This was taken not 5 minutes after delivery, called skin to skin contact..better for a more bonding experience."

    This is the first child for Coco. Ice-T has two children from previous relationships and is also a grandfather.
