Proud mommy! Coco Austin shared a snap of newborn daughter Chanel Nicole via Instagram on Monday, Nov. 30, two days after the little girl’s birth.

“#ChanelNicole took some hospital pics today!” the Ice Loves Coco star, 36, wrote. “She is so scrumptious… I can’t get enough of her and she got a full head of hair!”

In the new set of photos, Austin’s baby girl sleeps peacefully, dressed in a white onesie and wearing a red headband in one of the pics.

The reality star also offered an explanation as to why Chanel already has a full head of hair — and it’s unusual!

“So you know that myth, ‘if you have heartburn during pregnancy your baby will have a full head of hair,’ actually might be true, I really wanted to bust but couldn’t because I had bad heartburn,” she explained.

In addition to her heartburn, Austin also dished on another affliction on Sunday, Nov. 29.

“My nipples feel like they are gonna fall off, they’re so raw from breastfeeding,” she joked.

Austin and her husband, Ice T, welcomed Chanel Nicole — the couple’s first child together, who already has her own Twitter and Instagram accounts — on Saturday, Nov. 28. The rapper and Law & Order: SVU actor, 57, has two adult children from previous relationships.
