Coco Marie Austin and Ice-T are proud parents to a precious baby girl and the lovebirds are continuing to share photos of their bundle of joy on social media.
Coco gave birth to Chanel over the Thanksgiving weekend, confirming the big news on Instagram with an adorable photo of she and Ice’s first child together.
“Surprise!!! Look who came early!! Welcome the new arrival of Chanel Nicole.. A beautiful healthy 5.7 pound and 18 inch baby girl .Ice and I are so proud! I cried while she was coming out I was so excited to meet her,” she wrote. Adding that Chanel already has her own Instagram page: @babychanelnicole.
On Sunday, CoCo gave some pretty specific details about her delivery which the model calls the “best.”
Thanks so much for all the warm wishes today.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,” the new mom explained.
By the way, if you plan on following baby Chanel on Instagram, keep the trolling behind or else you will have to deal with her dad.
“Hey IG people!! I’m on IG and already got 70k followers,” Ice wrote on Instagram late Sunday night. “@babychanelnicole I’ve only been here a day and a half.. No haters allowed. Love Chanel.”
Congrats to the couple.
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
