Coco announced the birth Saturday with a celebratory social media post.
“Surprise!!! Look who came early!!” the reality star, 36, writes on Instagram. “Welcome the new arrival of Chanel Nicole.. A beautiful healthy 5.7 pound and 18 inch baby girl. Ice and I are so proud! I cried while she was coming out I was so excited to meet her!”
She then directs followers to her daughter’s Instagram account, @babychanelnicole. In the first photo posted on the account, little Chanel sports a dimple just like her daddy. Other photos show the proud parents cradling their new bundle of joy, including one of Coco shortly after the birth looking fresh in a full face of makeup.
The couple revealed the pregnancy back in July, during a taping of their daytime talk show, "Ice and Coco." They’ve been married since 2001. The 57-year-old Ice-T, born Tracy Marrow, has two children from a previous relationship.
