Coco worries about ‘ripping’ during labor because she’s ‘very petite down there’


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?

    The world really NEEDS that information.

    • sienna says:

      My question is, how did she get that information?

      How large is her sample size? Who are all these other women who had their openings measured by Coco?

      • Bridget says:

        Glad to know I’m not the only one who wondered that. How exactly does she know she’s “petite”? From her Gyno? From all the dudes she’s slept with? Does she compare with her friends?

        What does she think, that vaginas are usually cavernous pits in the rest of us?

      • Umila says:

        LMAO @Sienna As a researcher, I love that you asked about sample size. +1,000,000 for clever comments.

    • NYer says:

      This is the essence of TMI. I hope she births a 9-pounder.

  2. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Maybe it will come out of her chest like John Hurt in Alien. For the sake of her small hoohah I hope so.

  3. embertine says:

    Does that mean that Ice-T is also “really petite down there”? Let’s add this to the list of things I really did not need to know, shall we?

  4. Jo says:

    This grown ass woman doesn’t even know how her own body works. Yikes…

  5. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    You know, I used to like her, but lately, since the submissive thing, I guess, she just grates on my nerves. Very petite down there? Oh, the rest of us are walking Lincoln Tunnels. You itty bitty thing, you. Please. What a moron. And has she ever heard of a episiotomy? They ARE aware that the baby’s head is bigger than your hoo ha, dumbass.

  6. Swofty says:

    Here mouth is petite too, untill she opens iT.

    *hint coco*

  7. Snowpea says:

    I used to be very petite down there but three kids later and it looks like a wounded possum.

  8. Mrs. Wellen Melon says:

    It’s going to be okay, Coco. You’ve got this.

  9. Greenieweenie says:

    Everyone’s petite relative to a 10cm diameter head. I had 3rd deg tears and an episiotomy–thanks, forceps! Last thing I gave a rat’s ass about–just thankful the epidural had kicked in for the last cm + that godawful delivery

  10. manda says:

    Those are her values, I can’t be shocked that she’s going to pass them on. I love Ice and Coco, they do seem very much in love. And, like, down to earth, despite the fact that they are very far from earth. Yes, the gender roles are strong in their relationship, but it works for them, and yes, he seems to be very supportive of the stuff she does and wants to do, so again, it works for them.

    I’ve never had a baby but I have to say that I would worry about that too. I have a few friends who tore and whatever, they do what they can to fix you, but eeeek!!!! I also would worry about pooping in front of everyone, but maybe when you’re in the moment, you just don’t care? I have a lot of anxiety

    • Bridget says:

      Everyone worries, but even if you tear that heals up unless it was really bad. While childbirth is different for everyone, I personally thought it was a really cool experience and would happily give birth again (but not be pregnant. No thanks.) but it can be really hard to not know what you’re in for.

    • Rene says:

      Manda, childbirth is a great equalizer. At the end you don`t care whether or not they bring in a marching band into the delivery room. I tore and they did give me stitches. it is sometimes a fact with the size of the head although each of my babies were not large in weight.

      And also, at the end all you can think of is how beautiful your kid is, I am sure every mom feels the same way. With any young woman who has asked me later how it was, I did not go for the gore and scare the shit out of them, like the women around me, did before I gave birth. I told them it was a hard work but at the end you have your baby, simple.

    • Sarafrass says:

      In the moment – you wont care. Especially regarding the pooping, you might not even know it happens, since it feels the same as actually pushing the kid out. Once you’re at that point in labor, you could really care less about either pooping or tearing as they are both completely overshadowed by everything else. So, there’s no point worrying about it.

    • Kip says:

      The pain is so inbearable that you are happy to poo (into someone’s hand even) and thankful to be catheterised so you can get on with pushing (the only thing that feels good), so that’s the least of your worries. I was glad to get my episiotomy. After giving birth I am not embarrassed to be naked in the gym locker room or whatever, my body is objectively less like society’s ideals now, but I’ve never felt less angst about that. I guess that was an upside of experiencing the pain of birth.

  11. Yoohoo says:

    I’m not going to give her a hard time. I didn’t want to rip either. Thank god for c sections.

    • Elisha says:

      You didn’t want a little couple of cm rip on you vagina, so you went with them cutting a hole in your stomach and muscles and the ensuing surgical recovery….that…..makes sense.

      • Jay says:

        Some people are scared of the pain of ripping. C section = painless (during the procedure at least)

      • Nymeria says:

        @Elisha – So her decision wasn’t yours. What’s it to you? It’s her vag, not yours.

      • Bridget says:

        It’s her choice, but it’s okay for people to point out that it’s actually more painful to get a C section – 6 weeks of recovery where you’re not even supposed to lift something as heavy as the baby in the carseat. It’s hard.

      • qwerty says:

        A C-sec is a serious operation but not everyone’s willing to risk not being able to have sex without pain for 2 years afterwards (see: earlier comments)

  12. paola says:

    I’m sure I’ve read somewhere she had a daughter in her early 20s.. and that she was taken away from her.
    I wish Coco all the best, she seems such a sweet-embracing-her-own-trashiness person.
    I find her lovely.

  13. shewolf says:

    I cant hate on Coco, she’s harmless and comes off really sweet…. but girl, its a baby coming out of your vagina. Its going to hurt, its probably going to tear, and there aint a fanny on the planet thats not made for this shiz.

    • Nymeria says:

      Except that without modern Western medicine, up to 1/3 of women die either during childbirth, or afterward of an infection. So our bodies aren’t exactly perfectly made for “this shiz.”

  14. Jess says:

    Eh, she probably will rip or be cut, it’s usually not that big of a deal and it will go back to pre baby size, especially if you kegel! I think mine is in better shape now, definitely feels better.

  15. meme says:

    Yeah, the world needed to know that. I guess Ice T isn’t well endowed.

  16. Syko says:

    I don’t believe any woman alive has a lady part big enough that a 7 or 8 pound child will just drop out. But the doctor should perform an episiotomy to avoid tearing, and although stitches down there are a b**ch, they do heal.

    She really should discuss this fear with her doctor instead of telling the world about it.

    • Andria says:

      I was in the waiting room at my birth center when a (very tall) woman gave birth to a 12 lb baby, no ripping or cutting. I don’t think most women could do that, but it is possible. :)

      • aurelia says:

        I have a friend who is a doctor and she promised me not all women’s foos are the same size. Most are averagely sized (like mens dongs I guess) and then there are the capacious ones. Yes, their babies do literally just fall out at the crucial time. She didn’t say she had professionally encountered any underseized ladies foos though.

  17. Eden75 says:

    Petite down there. That’s funny. I suppose the rest of us can park a Mac truck in there, right?

  18. Elisha says:

    It’s not the vag hole part of labor that hurts! That’s a welcome relief from the ocean of vice grips that are contractions. Contractions are the painful part of labor. I had second-degree tears and stitches and it was still hands down the contractions that were hell on earth.

  19. Bonnie says:

    I truly believe that this woman is honestly clueless. All those chemicals from the hairspray, makeup, and hair dye have seeped into her head and done some serious brain damage. That, in addition to being an honest to God airhead to begin with. I can’t say that she bothers me as much as a Kardashian, though. For some reason, I really loved their show. And I think she is just uneducated about female anatomy anatomy and ditzy. She can’t help herself.

  20. iheartgossip says:

    So now we know Ice T has a small lil dude.

  21. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Ummm….where is her pregnancy bump? I’ve yet to see her look knocked up.

  22. KatC says:

    I sincerely doubt there is one single human woman who is aware that their vagina might tear during delivery and is not, at least intermittently, terrified of what that would be like. I would love to have six kids, but I suspect I will only be willing to carry and give birth to at most two.

  23. Pompasaurus says:

    By the look of all her camel toe shots, I’d say petite isn’t quite the word I would use for her “down there” region
