Motherhood couldn’t be better for Nicole “Coco" Austin. The new mom, 36, revealed that her husband, Ice T, is a great dad and that she gets emotional listening to him gush over their newborn daughter, Chanel Nicole.

“When I listened to Ice's podcast on Chanel I actually teared up to hear him talk about her,” the fashion designer tweeted on Friday, Dec. 11. “He is such a proud father. I couldn't ask 4 better."

In the Law & Order: SVU star’s podcast Final Level, Ice gushed over his little one.

"We're just proud parents and [nowadays] you can put it all on the net for everybody to see,” the rapper explained of Chanel’s Instagram account. “We've had all this response, as much as there's haters out there, 99.99 percent are nothing but love," he explained.

"At this point, I didn't really know what was going to make me excited. Like, another hit record? No. Another show? No,” the 57-year-old rapper concluded. “I’ve been really fortunate but this was something that really made me say wow. It's a beautiful thing."

Coco and Ice welcomed baby Chanel on Nov. 28. Ice is also dad to now adults Letesha and Tracy from previous relationships.
