Coco Austin bathes daughter, 6, in sink, gets mixed reactions

Coco Austin’s time-saving hack is turning heads.

The model got mixed reactions when she revealed that she sometimes washes her 6-year-old daughter, Chanel, in their sink.

“The sink is easiest when you have to be quick,” Austin, 43, wrote Thursday in an Instagram video of the little one using her iPad in the makeshift bathtub.

The reality star showed how she curled her hair as she and Coco got ready for a Patricia Fields fashion show, the little one “first as a gold digger.”

Though the footage continued with Chanel picking out her own outfit and smiling in their car, Austin’s followers couldn’t shake the bathing area, echoing the comments section.

“You all [sic] still treat her like a baby,” wrote one Instagram user.

Another added: “She must… [sic] old to be in the sink… that was really awkward to watch.”

However, other social media users pounced on Austin’s “deep” — and probably expensive — sink, praising her “great” idea.

“The sink saves you from back pain,” wrote one of the followers of the “Ice Loves Coco” alum.

A second commented, “Imagine how much water it actually saves. Plus, you never have to bend down to help her.”

Austin and her husband, Ice-T, have made headlines in recent years for their controversial parenting decisions, from continuing to breastfeed Chanel to pushing her in a stroller.

“The world loves to deliver literary criticism” [sic] everything I do!” Austin tweeted after the latter went viral in May.

“Oh lord!! Really people?” she then continued. “Isn’t there a war and mass shootings going on right now and would you rather mess with my motherhood? SMH.”

“Law & Order: SVU” star Ice-T, 64, agreed“MFs have nothing else to talk about. Vm all. Smh. Lol.”

Austin similarly clapped back to haters in August 2021 when her decision to nurse Chanel came under fire.

“Chanel still loves my breasts. Why would you take that from her?” she explained to Us Weekly last year. “If she doesn’t want it, okay, then stop.”

The little one started first grade earlier this month and Austin said the milestone was “bittersweet” for them.
