Ice-T has come to the defense of his wife Coco Austin following the negative response to her revealding that she’s still breastfeeding their 5-year-old daughter, Chanel.
Coco engaged with her followers early last year after posting a photo of herself breastfeeding Chanel, who was 4 years old at the time, on Instagram. When asked at what age she planned on stopping, she replied, “I say when she is ready, she will let me know.” In response to someone raising the hypothetical situation where Chanel still wanted to be breastfeed at 12, Coco seemed certain that it would come to an end well before that age, claiming that “Europeans ween around 7.”
The breastfeeding topic was revisited late last month when Coco informed Us Weekly that her stance remains unchanged, even though Chanel is a year older. Nowadays, Coco says her daughter treats it like “a little snack every now and then,” adding, “Why take that away from her? … If she doesn’t want it, all right, that’s where you stop it. But I’m not just going to say no.”
“Chanel still likes my boobs,” she said. “It’s a big bonding moment for a mother and your child.”
Speaking of someone who may share that same sentiment, Ice-T had a roller coaster series of tweets that went from clarifying that Chanel receives actual food in addition to breast milk to proudly giving himself a new moniker.
