The couple confirmed their happy news on July 27, three days after letting audience members at a taping of their talk show Ice & Coco in on their big secret. "I've been pregnant for a while, but we've been holding it between us for some time," Coco told New York City's Fox 5 News. Letting Ice & Coco fans in on the surprise was "a really awesome moment," she added. "I cried."
