Coco Austin is still breastfeeding her two-year-old daughter.
The ‘Ice and Coco’ star has revealed she’s still nursing her little girl Chanel, whom she has with her husband Ice T, because it’s created a special bond between them but she mainly does it for “comfort” rather than to provide the toddler with milk.
Taking to her Instagram account, the blonde beauty uploaded a photograph of Chanel holding her mother’s breast during a nap and accompanied it with the caption: “I follow some mother impowering pages here on Instagram and I love the inspiring pics they post showing the tenderness and love between a mother and child with or without nursing moments.. I love that I can be a part of that. @babychanelnicole has made me a more sensitive person now that I’m older. (sic)”
When fans flocked to the post to ask her if she’s still nursing the toddler, Coco replied: “Yep, but it’s more for comfort now.”
The 39-year-old actress recently said, although most women gain weight during their pregnancy, Chanel “sucked all the fat” out of her while she was growing inside her.
She said: “I call Chanel my human liposuction! I was a lot bigger, then when I got pregnant with her she sucked the fat out of me. I was like, ‘What the heck? I need to be pregnant my whole life!’
“Then when I had her, that’s when the weight came back on. It easily came on faster – but now that I’m a mom I don’t [worry] so much about being in shape.”
But, although she has to work a little harder on the running machine these days, the former model is a lot more comfortable with her body and embraces her extra curves.
