Coco and Ice-T announced that they were expecting their first child (a girl they will name Chanel) together in July. Ever since then, they’ve been sort of extra about it, but it’s been somewhat charming. I feel like people genuinely like them because they own who they are and they seem to have a very strong marriage. Even though Coco claims she’s a “slave” to Ice and that she “submissive” to him entirely, in real life, he’s always supportive of her career and her choices and it feels like whatever she wants, he’s going to give it to her. Anyway, Coco has a new interview with In Touch Weekly and some of these quotes are really funny.
Nicole “Coco” Austin tells In Touch that believe it or not, labor is what worries her the most about motherhood. “If I could avoid actually giving birth, I’d probably have like five children,” Coco says.
“This makes people laugh, but I’m very petite down there. I’m prepared for pain, I just don’t want to go through all the dramatics of ripping.”
While she has been lucky enough not to have to deal with morning sickness, she hasn’t been able to escape the pregnancy cravings. “If I do crave something, it’s bubbles,” Coco explains. “I like the fizz in drinks like Shirley Temples.”
“I’ve only gained about 5 pounds!” she says. “For 18 years, I’ve been a model, but as soon as I got pregnant, I really couldn’t care less about my body.”
Coco tells In Touch she will be open for a Mommy Makeover, but “for now I’m waiting to see how things change, how bad the stretch marks are.”
And Coco doesn’t plan on sacrificing her style once the baby – a girl! – comes either. “Expect a MILF! When I get up at 5 o’clock in the morning to go with Ice to the set, I’m completely done up — always top-notch. I want to transfer that to my child.”
“I’m very petite down there.” Girl, we are ALL petite down there. “I just don’t want to go through all the dramatics of ripping.” I truly wish women would stop talking about “ripping.” Please? “I’m completely done up — always top-notch. I want to transfer that to my child.” Really? She really wants her kid to learn that her makeup must always be done and she must be beautifully turned out at all times? That’s your mother-daughter legacy?
