Here for it! Coco Austin shared the sweetest snaps of her breastfeeding her daughter Chanel in true Coco fashion. The 40-year-old took to her Instagram Story to share a message about its importance on Wednesday, September 18.
“When the boob calls,” the model captioned the photo of her nursing her 3-year-old daughter. “#normalizebreastfeeding,” she added in another pic. The blonde beauty sat on a private jet with her feet (in Valentino Rockstuds, may we add) up on the plush seat beside her. Little Chanel rested her hand on her mother’s cheek as she suckled.
The mom previously took heat for breastfeeding her then 2-year-old daughter last May. She got a beating from the parent police when she admitted she still breastfeeds, “Yep … but it’s more for comfort now.” Clearly, she wasn’t fazed by the backlash.
Coco and Ice-T previously told In Touch that they love being parents and life with their little girl is “incredible.” “It’s wonderful. We’re proud parents, and we love showing it,” Ice, 61, said. The iconic couple puts their daughter’s cuteness on full display on her very popular Instagram account run by her mom. “You know, the day she was born, we started because I knew, you know, parents are always showing pictures of your kids. And you make people sick. So I said I’ll just give her a Twitter page and Instagram page, and we can load that up.” Ice continued, “And now she’s got almost 400,000 Instagram followers. And she don’t even know it.”
The bombshell echoed that running her daughter’s social media has become a full-time job. “It’s part of my work day. In the morning, I literally find pictures. I take pictures. I’m her own photographer. I accessorize her. And I teach her how to pose, and at the end of the day, she has a wonderful Instagram.”
The parents also noted that Chanel shows immense potential and interest in being an entertainer. “I think she’s very creative. And I think she’ll take on what we do,” Coco noted. “She’s just started dance classes and it’s so cute because like all the girls in class range from like three to six, and they’re pretty much all six years old. She’s three years old, and she’s like the only one that pays attention in class, she really wants to learn,” Coco said of her over-achieving daughter. “So I think that’s something that she’s going to be into. I think she’s into acting and modeling.” Chanel is one lucky 3-year-old!
