Ice T and his wife Coco Austin recently announced that they are expecting their first child together.
“Oh shit! The news is out. YES. We”re having a baby,” Ice T tweeted earlier today (July 27). “We announced it on the Ice&Coco Talk Show taping Friday.. That show will air August 3rd”
Coco Austin also confirmed the news via Twitter.
“I’m pregnant!!! Yah!! Ice & I are so excited! I announced it Friday on our new talkshow which airs Aug 3rd.,” Coco tweeted a short while after Ice T’s tweet.
This will be Ice T’s third child. The 57-year-old rapper already has two adult children from a previous relationship as well as a 20-year-old Grandson, who in June, was charged after he allegedly shot and killed his roommate in 2014. Elyjah Marrow’s charges include involuntary manslaughter, theft by receiving stolen property and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony reckless conduct.
The couple’s pregnancy news comes just days before the debut episode of their Ice & Coco television show, which airs on August 3.
“It’s a fun show with our own style of hip, married humor and honesty,” the couple said about the show in a statement, according to E!
