Coco and Ice T are Expecting!
If you're enjoying Kim Kardashian's flashy maternity style, get ready for news about one pregnant star who's likely to make over-the-top-bump-style-watching even more fun: Coco!
That's right, the model and reality star Coco (whose real name is Nicole Austin) is expecting a baby with her rapper/actor hubby Ice T.
"I'm pregnant! Yah! Ice & I are so excited!," the mom-to-be tweeted, adding that she publicly revealed her news at a taping on Friday for the couple's new daytime talk show, which is slated to premiere on August 3.
She also posted a photo to Instagram showing the announcement. In the caption, she added, "On the show I get into all the details about getting pregnant, the sex and how far along I am!! I was so overwhelmed I cried!"
The long-time pair have been married for 14 years, and there's quite an age difference between them: two decades! The mama-to-be is 36 (that's how old I was, too, when I was pregnant). Not too much worth noting there (even though there's much talk about the challenges and risks of "advanced maternal age" when an expecting mom is over 35.) But Ice T, who already has two grown children, is 57!
I can tell you it's pretty physically tiring trying to keep up with two infants at my age, and I can't imagine how I'd feel—or my husband would feel—if we were trying to manage this infant and toddler phase 20 years out.
But he's far from the only older celebrity dad to go that route. For instance, George Lucas had a baby at 69, Robert DeNiro at 68, Steve Martin at 67, Elton John at 66, and current presidential candidate Donald Trump at 62!
