Welcoming a baby into the family can certainly change up the dynamic of a marriage, but Coco and Ice-T seem to have it all figured out.
Coco sat down with E! News to talk about baby Chanel and how life has changed for her and her husband. Although they're both doting parents to their little bundle of joy, Coco says both she and her hubby need some alone time to help maintain the peace and harmony. And by alone time, we mean separate from each other! Coco tells us that there are three things in particular that Ice-T needs to keep him happy.
"Massage time—he needs his massages. He needs his X-Box time. You give him that time and he's a happy camper for the rest of the day," Coco revealed, adding, "and if he has grape Kool-Aid in the refrigerator at all times."
Sounds easy to us! But Coco joked that her needs are "a piece of cake."
"I'm pretty simple," she quipped. "I am easy. You know what I'm liking on the massage level, now that I'm holding a little thing—literally holding her back and forth, back and forth—I'm getting really strong without even going to the gym. It's becoming a baby muscle right now...but it's pulling me down. Not just the boobs are pulling me down on a milk level."
She added, "My lower back is killing me from the baby, so I needed more massages. I never wanted massages before...but now I'm kind of demanding it. Even a massage over sex honestly! I hate to say it, but I'm much more in pain than I was before."
Despite the physical pain she might be in as a result of carrying her adorable baby around, Coco said it has been nothing but wonderful; however, before she and Ice-T welcomed Chanel, Coco received a lot of negative commentary from those close to her, which she didn't appreciate. As a result, the reality star recommended that people surround themselves with people who will add positivity.
"It's not really advice, but I've gotten a lot of negativity pre-being pregnant. 'Don't get pregnant. This happens and this happens.' So much negativity around it that I was scared to get pregnant. I was like, 'Is this really that bad?'" she recalled.
"And then going through it I really liked being pregnant, and I got kind of depressed by the end because I felt like I wasn't pregnant long enough. I was like all right, wait a second we're going to have her and I'm just starting to see a bump!"
Coco continued, "But people were trying to steer me away from it, and it is a blessing in disguise. Well, then after you have the baby, people get even more negative, 'You're not going to sleep, you're going to grow out of your shoes.' I wanted to have a baby in a more positive vibe, and now I feel like I need to be surrounded by positivity."
Living happily ever after with Ice-T, Coco has no problem keeping a smile on her face.
