Coco, 36, made her first TV appearance since giving birth to Chanel, 2 months, on Friday, February 19. The new mom showed off her adorable bundle of joy and even got emotional while talking about her.
“I have a baby!” the Ice Loves Coco star exclaimed. “I love her. It makes me cry when I see her 'cause I made this little girl, 'cause they said I couldn’t and I did! Screw the haters.”
Before she found out she was pregnant, Coco struggled with her health and high blood pressure for decades.
“I actually had high blood pressure since [I was] 6 years old,” she explained. “No one knew about it until when I hit 30. I’m 36 now.”
The new mom carried Chanel to full term, and gave birth in November 2015. Her husband, Ice-T, has two adult children from previous relationships.
Since Chanel’s birth, Coco has received criticism from fans, who claim she exploits her daughter with all of the photos she shares on social media. She quickly responded to the haters in December, writing, “How is this exploiting her? I’m proud that I’m finally a mama… does she not look happy?”
