Introducing our newest celebrity blogger, Coco!
The talk-show host, fitness enthusiast and reality star is gearing up to welcome her first child with husband Ice-T. Lucky for us, she’s documenting her journey to motherhood in several blog posts exclusively for E! News.
As she prepares for the birth of her baby girl named Chanel, take a look at how the Ice & Coco star is preparing for her growing family.
There’s a lot of first-time women out there that are just like me who are freaking out about having babies and having kids and sometimesthey wait so long that they don’t have children so I want to set the record clear of what I’m going through so maybe someone can go, ‘Maybe it’s not so bad’ or ‘Maybe I just need to make it happen.’
I always knew from the bottom of my heart—since I was a little girl all the way till now—that I wanted to have a child at 35 years old. But I always got mixed signals. Most people say 35’s too old and I should start having them earlier and I believe your 20s are your wild times. I call it your Spring Break years. And then you move into yours 30s and in your 30s, you should come to know what you want out of life.
I know where I want to be in my life. I always knew that 35 was the magical number. Ten years ago, Ice and I already had a boy and girl name picked out because we knew what we wanted to do with this whole kid thing.
I waited a long time and it had nothing to do with Ice. It has everything to do with me. I wanted to have a career before having a child. So we sat down and had a conversation. 35 was the magic number and I called my doctor to see what I have to do.
I got off the pill in late January after 17 years and to my surprise in March, I started feeling symptoms, almost a psychic ability inside of me that said you’re about to be pregnant, watch out! I tuned into my psychic. Some people say you get psychic when you get pregnant—such truth!
To my surprise, two pink lines showed up positive when I took a pregnancy test and I freaked out. I couldn’t believe that psychic intuition was the truth and I started balling, crying like crazy. Not like a happy cry but like ‘OMG! I’m stunned. It’s so easy to get pregnant.’ I didn’t believe it at first.
I ran down stairs. Ice was on the computer. I was balling and he thought someone had died. It was such a hard cry that he thought someone had died. I said, ‘You’re looking at a pregnant lady’ and he stared at me with a long stare like he didn’t know how to take that.
After it sunk in, we hugged each other but we were so shocked at first. We couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe I was pregnant at my age and after everyone told me that at my age, I couldn’t do it.
The weird thing is I got pregnant on my birthday. I got pregnant on or around March 17. I thought that was pretty awesome and special. We were traveling that day and I was like ‘Wow. How did we get it in on that day?’
I’m now five months pregnant. People didn’t know I was pregnant. I was doing photoshoots, I was on tour with Ice in Europe and people never guessed in a million years that I was pregnant!
