As it turns out, Ice-T’s wife Coco Austin was pregnant after all — and now, the couple has an adorable 5.7-pound girl to show for it.

The veteran rapper and his talk-show-sharing wife became parents on Saturday (Nov. 28), welcoming daughter Chanel into the world. Shortly afterwards, Coco shared a first photo of the little cutie on Instagram.

“Surprise!!! Look who came early!!” the new mom writes on the post. “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,” Coco adds. “I was so excited to meet her!”

The husband and wife announced in July on the set of their new talk show “Ice & Coco” that they were expecting their first child together. In August, they revealed the gender and name. Although the show is currently on hiatus, it is in talks to resume next summer — and it seems like Ice-T and Coco will now have plenty to talk about.

Meanwhile, Ice-T tweeted the same photo on his account – and in barely 2 hours, it received 2.2 thousand likes. The proud papa writes: “Ladies and gentlemen! Please allow me  to introduce to the World … Baby Chanel 5.7 pounds. Love is Love.”
