That's right, Chanel turned 8 years old on Nov. 28, and her mom couldn't believe how quickly time has flown.
"Im happy/sad today... Chanel turned 8!!" Coco wrote on Instagram alongside a few photos of Chanel. "Do I cry or smile? I dont know.. I remember her moving around in my belly like it was yesterday.. Im so proud of what a beautiful sweet loving girl she's become.. Happy Birthday to @babychanelnicole I love you soooooooooooooooooooo much!! Its amazing how much love you can have for a little human being."
And she wasn't the only one to celebrate the big day. Ice-T also penned a heartfelt tribute to Chanel on social media.
"HappyBirthday @babychanelnicole," the rapper—who is also dad to daughter LeTesha, 47, and son Tracy Jr., 32, from previous relationships—captioned a series of throwbacks in his own post. "You're 8yrs old today! Wow.. so fast!"
And while Coco knows social media users have a lot to say about the way she parents—including her decision to breastfeed Chanel at age 5 and bathe her in the sink at age 6—she isn't afraid to respond to these comments. She also knows she has the support of Ice-T.
"I'm underneath a microscope all the time and you don't hear what good you do," she said while tearing up on the show. "You don't hear the goodness. You just hear a lot of bad. And I know I'm a good mother because I dedicated the last six years of putting everything aside—my career, everything—just for her. And you just want a little love, you want a little respect from people."
