Nicole “Coco” Austin is known for her voluptuous figure, and as Ice T‘s model wife explains, just because she’s pregnant doesn’t mean she’ll start donning muumuus. “I’m iffy about maternity clothes,” Coco told HuffPost Live during a July 29 interview, two days after officially confirming she‘s expecting the couple’s first child.
Though she isn’t revealing how far along she is, the mama-to-be has thus far stuck to the curve-hugging clothing she already owns. “I’ve worn everything of mine that’s in the closet,” Coco, who has her own fashion line called Licious, said. “I’ll deal with [getting larger sizes and other styles] when it happens.”
That’s not to say the 36-year-old hasn’t noticed major changes in her body. “[I don’t have] crazy cravings, but my boobs are getting bigger, I have to pee a lot, and I’m more tired than usual,” she revealed.
Coco has also been feeling more amorous with her husband of 14 years. “For me, in my pregnancy, I want to be touched all the time. It gets the hormone juices flowing,” she hinted.
Ice T, 57, is more than happy to oblige his pregnant wife. “If the door slams or the wind blows, Coco gets horny,” joked the rapper and Law & Order: SVU actor. “They say when sex is good, it’s 20 percent of the relationship, but when it’s bad, it’s 80 percent of the relationship. For us, it’s the cherry on top of our relationship.”
The couple has chosen to keep details about their baby-to-be secret — at least until their talk show Ice & Coco premieres on Monday, Aug. 3 on Fox television stations. During the upcoming first week (where guests include Snooki and Tamar Braxton), Coco will reveal her due date and baby’s gender.
If it was totally up to them, however, they’d keep everything under wraps. “Coco’s the kind of woman who would have had this baby and never let anyone know she was pregnant. She doesn’t like the attention that comes with it,” Ice T told HuffPost Live. “She doesn’t like people telling her what’s going to happen and get in her business. We know how to keep a secret. I told Coco that in my previous occupation, letting loose a secret was an occupational hazard. I can hold ’em forever.”
