Ice-T, 57, and Coco Austin, 36, are expecting their first child together


I have no shame in admitting that I miss Ice Loves Coco. It was never on my must-watch list, but there were so many instances where I ended up getting trapped in a marathon and I would just enjoy Ice-T and Coco together. The last season of Ice Loves Coco was filmed back in 2013. But maybe we’ll get more episodes now, because COCO IS PREGNANT! At long last! Ice and Coco have been married since 2001 and Coco has been talking about babies for years. Ice is 57, Coco is 36 (allegedly). And now they’re expecting.

Step aside precious pooches because your owners are about to welcome a baby! A source confirms to E! News that Coco is pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Ice-T. The Law & Order: SVU star is already the proud dad to two kids from a previous relationship.

While fans have witnessed the Hollywood pair spoil their dogs including Spartacus and Maximus, they’ve also witnessed the twosome discuss the possibility of expanding their family with kids.

“There’s a lot of peer pressure for me,” Coco once revealed to E! News. “It’s not just my family that’s giving it, it’s the world…When the time’s right, I will.”

Ice-T added, “At the end of the day, it’s Coco’s call. She puts in the order and I can do the deed.”

“I don’t want to be like those 80-year-old women with no one around them,” Coco shared with E! News a couple years back. “I want to have something I gave birth to early in life and be like, ‘You can help me out now!'”

[From E! News]

Congrats to them. I do think this is a real love match, by the way. Ice adores Coco and she worships him. This isn’t some fly-by-night hookup either – they’ve been solid for more than 15 years. God, I hope Ice Loves Coco gets another season. I need to see Coco’s pregnancy detailed in a reality show context.

    LOL I Love This, I Love Coco’s trashy unapologetic self

    • Miran says:

      @QQ me too. She’s so low brow but she knows it and doesn’t care lol.

    • MelissaManifesto says:

      Yes! Yes! Yes! I have been trying to define her, but “trashy unapologetic self” is right on the Ice money.

    • Christo says:

      Good for them, but, for the life of me, I thought she was in her mid-40’s at the very least. She always strikes me as the type who is just two years shy of jumping the shark into TanMom-dom.

      • V4Real says:

        So did I. I thought she was beyond 30 something

      • Keaton says:

        ME TOO! I was coming here to post the same thing.
        36? Really? I honestly thought she was much older. I guess they’ve been together for so long that I assumed she was older when they married.

        Anyway Congrats to Ice and Coco! I have a soft spot for them

    • kri says:

      I’m with you my friend.They are who they are that being said..36?? but okay.Congrts to them and their little soon to be baby ice coco!

    • Tiffany says:

      She has said she dresses for Ice so I believe that his taste is pretty trashy. She seems to be a sweet person who likes to look out for people. The show itself was pretty funny and never mean spirited so that is why it caught my attention all those years.

    • Wren says:

      I love her too! She is what she is and owns it, and she seems genuinely nice. I hope they’re very happy.

    • the_blonde_one says:

      I adore Coco and Loathe the Kartrashian for the sole reason that Coco engulfs herself in her trashiness and ‘non-surgically enhanced’ butt- there’s no coyness or pretense of classiness or ‘accidentally/ unknowingly’ wearing clothes five sizes two small. Coco’s just like ‘I don’t need a microscope to see those shorts bottoms- SMALLER GO SMALLER’

    • canadaorbroke says:

      Coco is awesome. I, too, admit to heart-pounding and fist-pumping Ice Loves Coco. Didn’t discover it till it went off the air. Yeah, there is something about them that is wholly likable. But then again, in 15 years, we’ll probably find out something horrible….le sigh.

  2. FingerBinger says:

    Maybe Ice’s grandchildren can babysit.

  3. Sam says:

    I don’t care, I like these two. They seem to be really happy. I hope this doesn’t impact their lovely dogs too badly. The dogs were a part of the show and they’re awesome.

    • Joan says:

      I love these two! They are cute together and so funny!! Congratulations to them both!! All the best for a happy and healthy pregnancy!

    • Krista says:

      Me too! There were rumors of troubles a few years ago, but it seems like they’ve weathered the storm. Love them!

      • V4Real says:

        Supposedly she cheated with rapper AP.9 while working in Vegas. The pics are very telling. People accused Affleck of checking out a woman’s ass just by looking at a pic, he wasn’t by the way. If you see the pics of Coco, you might come to the conclusion that something was going on. My SO would not appreciate it if I let another man hold me like that while we plant smooches on each other’s face. He definitely wouldn’t appreciate it if I let that man put his head that close to my girls or hus hand on my ass. I like Coco and Ice but I wouldn’t be surprised if she cheated. Though nothing much was said about her supposedly infidelity. Like I said women cheat too. Congrats, but let’s just hope this isn’t a bandaid baby.

    • IfUSaySo says:

      What a weird thing to say. They’re having a baby and you hope it doesn’t “impact” their “dogs too badly” WTH?

      • Nic says:

        Many dogs end up in shelters and rescues because people decide they don’t want them after having children, I think that’s what she’s referring too. I do not see that being the case with these two.

      • Sam says:

        Because that actually happens. Animals can develop jealousy when a new baby shows up. My husband and I spent weeks acclimating our cats to the new baby, and we’re doing it again now. If you watch the show, both Ice and Coco dote on their dogs and treat them like kids. So yeah, a baby will impact the dogs’ lives.

      • IfUSaySo says:

        Right. And if the dog goes nutso it should be rehomed so the child is safe and not threatened. I’m not an animal person, but I love children so it seems bizarre to me to think of the animals as pitiable here. Don’t pets normally “handle” new babies ok? If my dog didn’t, he’d be gone without a second thought.

  4. Meow Mix says:

    I love them so much together! This news makes me so happy for people I don’t even know.

    • Kip says:

      Whatever happened with that cheating scandal?

      • Meow Mix says:

        I remember that and was so afraid that they were not together anymore. Hopefully its not a bandaid baby 🙁
        Just glad that they are still together after such a long time.

  5. Snazzy says:

    wait, he’s 57 and she’s 36, together for 15+ years, that means that they started dating when she was 21 and him 42?

    Sorry, that’s just EWWWW

    Edit: Sorry just noticed people questioning Coco’s age (36?). If she’s older than 36 than there is less of an eww factor

    • lisa says:

      she was married to someone else for 3 or 4 years before that. while technically it is possible, i gotta go all birther on her and say i need to see some official state documents to buy 36

  6. E says:

    I ran into them at a mall a few years ago and they were both very nice people. You can also tell that their love for each other is real and not an act. Congrats to them both!

    • Mean Hannah says:

      I was on a flight with them once – they seemed nice and she’s much thinner, smaller and younger looking IRL. I can buy that she’s 36. Her makeup makes her look older.

      • Pale fire says:

        Saw them in a mall in NYC yes to all of this very tiny small thin w poppin cartoon curves. Looks younger in person and EVERYONE stared. She’s a cutie.

  7. Mia V. says:

    More Coco, please!

  8. tifzlan says:

    It’s kind of cute how they’re still together despite all the naysayers. Congratulations!

    Side note but unrelated: my bf’s brother’s password to his computer is “Iced Tea” and when he told me, Ice-T was what came to my mind apparently and i tried it and it didn’t work and i was really confused… until he told me it was the beverage, not the rapper-actor.

    Edit: i didn’t mean “it’s kind of cute” in a condescending way. I really think it’s cute and awesome!

    • Erinn says:

      Lol, I love that.

      And part of me really really hopes that they give this kid a beverage related nickname.

  9. Cran says:

    I truly believe you and your husband adore one another but as part of the extremely large part of the world living outside your bubble? Believe me no pressure. Lol.

    • Wren says:

      That part actually bothered me. The peer pressure to have children is real and I hate it. At a restaurant I overheard a (very loud, rather drunk) woman ranting about how she was going to demand “5 year plans” from her adult children on how they were going to find a spouse and have grandchildren for her. Since she gave birth to them and all, they owe her babies. The arrogance was unbelievable.

      • Aren says:

        It’s sadly very common. I’m older than CoCo (apparently) and my mom was telling me just yesterday that “For some reason God didn’t want to give me any grandchildren”. I reminded her that I stood by what I’d always said: “I can have them, but you raise them and you support them, I don’t have the resources nor the will for that”.
        That always makes her say she’s okay without them.

      • chaine says:

        i have a family member that was blaring to a large group at a family reunion that she better have some grandchildren within “the next ten years.” Her kids are teenagers and one just a few weeks ago graduated high school and was sitting right there while this diatribe was going on. no pressure to perform, right?

      • QQ says:

        Oh My mom ( who has 6 grandchildren from kids she also treats MUUUCHHH better than me) actually badgers me nearly constantly about this, once suggesting I’m being an asshole and purposefully keeping grandkids from her, she went so far as to ask me to have one no questions asked about parentage, and earlier last month actually said she wishes my IUD had failed and not my sister’s cause I’m the one that should get pregnant not my sister.

      • GrnMtGirl says:

        I am sooooo ready for more Grandbabies (I have one grandson who is 8), and I’ll tease my oldest two, who have no children, but I can’t imagine pressuring them, or believing that they owe me. I’m looking forward to the day my kids are ready, but it isn’t fair to them for me to expect anything from them.

  10. savu says:

    I adore them. You can tell they’re the real deal, judgement aside. Yay!!!!

  11. Jayna says:

    Great couple. I’m happy for them.

  12. emmyb1608 says:

    Congratulations! Solid couples seem to be rare on Celeb Land. Now…*Snark Alert* She’s 36?…

  13. Kiki says:

    I really like the, as a couple. They maybe over the top but they still have love for each other and I don’t see any narcissism either, unlike most people ‘hint hint’. And 15 yrs is a long time for a couple and still going strong. I love their love and congrats to the new bundle of joy.

  14. Ronda says:

    Didnt she step out on him with another rapper who made it all public?

    googled it:

  15. burnsie says:

    I’m so excited! I wonder what drink they’ll name their child? They need to keep the theme up, obvs

  16. lucy2 says:

    Congrats to them!
    Don’t believe she’s 36, but whatever. If so, then she’s younger than his daughter!
    Side note – having kids so you’re not alone in old age never sounds like a good idea – I’m sure there’s more to their decision than that, but having kids is no guarantee they’re going to take care of you in the future.

    • Tulip says:

      Lol, so true! wannabe grannies (who SHOULD back off) aren’t the only arrogant people in the life cycle discussion. It’s a sad fact that sometimes kids think you did a horrible job of being there for them as a kid and will NOT come to visit you in the nursing home. The 80 year old women with no one around them aren’t always childless. In this aspect, Coco is unbelievably sheltered.

  17. georgia says:

    I love ice and coco! I’d watch their show for pregnant coco stories. They’re a good time.

  18. Aren says:

    She seems to be a very nice and gentle person so I’m sure she’s going to be a great mom. Congratulations.

  19. Nikole says:

    This makes me so happy!

    I *LOVE* Ice-T. He reminds me of my dad so much. Have any of you listened to his podcast?

  20. amp122076 says:

    I love them and think she’s a trip but no_way_is she 36.

  21. Murphy says:

    I’m another big fan of Ice and Coco.
    Even though they talked about it alot for their show, I’m surprised (and impressed) that it happened several years after the show ended.

    • mary simon says:

      I like them, too, but that poor baby will have silicone coursing through its veins.

  22. Cinderella says:

    I would put Coco at 41, but either way, I’m happy for them and hope they have a healthy baby and a long-lasting marriage.

  23. NGBoston says:

    Funny—–but I love them as a couple too. At the end of the day—the Blonde is not as Ditsy as she seems and Ice is just, Ice.

    I would invest in catching a few episodes if there is another season. This is something she has wanted for awhile so she may have to end her gigs in Nightclubs showing of her many assets.

    I think he will continue to be a cool Dad and she will make a good Mum (she comes from a very loving family) and it would be great for them. Add another dimension to their marriage. She deserves it!

    Best Wishes =)

  24. lisa says:

    “I don’t want to be like those 80-year-old women with no one around them,” Coco shared with E! News a couple years back. “I want to have something I gave birth to early in life and be like, ‘You can help me out now!’”

    because having children to care for you in your old age always works out

  25. Kate says:

    I love them both. No shade.

  26. Brasileira says:

    Yayyyyyyyyy! I was cheering for them. Besides all the exhageration brought in the reality show, they seem to really love one another. Yeah, despite those rumors last year that she was cheating on him. I don’t know, I just like them so much together, I’m a huge fan of Ice-T and I hope they’re happy!

  27. Rockin Robin says:

    I am so happy for them.

  28. jwoolman says:

    I’ve always liked Ice-T in general, but in the few bits of their show that I saw it was nice to see how respectful he was of CoCo. He never mistook her for the ditz she often played. He obviously thought quite highly of her and encouraged her.

  29. kitty-bye says:

    Yay! Cheers to them 🙂 Lovey couple!
