She’s only 4 days old, but Coco Austin and Ice T’s baby girl is already making new friends. By the looks of it, little Chanel Nicole is bonding big-time with her “bro,” the couple’s bulldog Max.
“I feel real safe with my new bros @spartandmax around,” a caption on the newborn’s Instagram account read on Wednesday, Dec. 2. “Max is real protective of anyone that comes close to me. I like them but they have smelly farts.”
In the adorable photo, the snoozing little girl, who was born on Saturday, Nov. 28, is wrapped up in a swatch of red fabric, with a big black flower bow on her head. Max (whose full name is Maximus) is snuggled right against her on what appears to be a bed.
On Sunday, Nov. 29, Coco, 36, and Ice T, 57, shared photos of their 5.7-pound baby girl on her own Instagram account.
“I got daddy’s dimple,” her first post read. And indeed, Chanel shows off a smirk and deep dimple that are reminiscent of her rapper dad’s.
The pair announced their happy pregnancy news back in July, with the mom-to-be tweeting excitedly, in addition to revealing the news to fans during a taping of the couple’s new network TV daytime talk show, Ice & Coco.
The baby girl is the first for Coco and the third for Ice T, who already has two adult children from previous relationships, as well as a 20-year-old grandson.
