Coco Austin gets emotional when daughter Chanel goes to school

Grown up.

Coco Austin got emotional when she sent her 6-year-old daughter to first grade on Wednesday.

“My baby…Absolutely a bittersweet day,” Austin wrote alongside a photo of her daughter, Chanel, along with the hashtags, “#1stdayofschool #1stgrade.”

Chanel – who she shares with her husband Ice-T – wore bright pink tights, a white t-shirt and a denim jacket tied together with a pink bow in her long hair.

The first-grader gave the camera a shy smile as she held up a sign in honor of her first day of school.

The board had several prompts for the first-grader to fill out, such as a list of her “favorite things,” including dancing, drawing, and making food.

Chanel plans to follow in her father’s footsteps as she wants to be a “singer” when she grows up, she noted on the board.

Both Austin – whose real name is Nicole Natalie Marrow – and Ice-T are known for spoiling their daughter, often leading to criticism from other parents online.

In May, the blonde bombshell was criticized for pushing Chanel in a stroller while on vacation in the Bahamas.

The 43-year-old shared a family photo of an annoyed-looking Chanel slumped in a stroller while shopping.

“A stroll through the shops of @atlantisbahamas…” Austin wrote on the Instagram post.

“Chanel will be done with it in no time, unless there’s something cool to see,” she continued, recognizing her daughter’s pouting expression.

Critics were quick to call out the mother of one of the two, with comments like, “Isn’t she just 6 years old! Should she be out of a pram by now?!” and “let her grow up.”

Both Coco and Ice-T, real name Tracy Lauren Marrow, responded to the “ridiculous” response to the 64-year-old rapper, tweeting, “MFs have nothing else to talk about. Vm everyone. Smh. Lol.”

The “Law and Order: SVU” star and Austin have been together for 21 years and tied the knot in January 2022.
