Coco Austin Defends Breastfeeding Her 5-Year-Old Daughter
Chanel's world and we're just living in it!
The daughter of
and Ice-T continues to take the internet by storm. Whether the 5-year-old cutie is Coco Austin dressed to the nines like her momma or striking a pose on the 'Gram, Chanel is a star in her own right. After all, she recently went viral for looking like the spitting image of her dad.
On Sunday, Aug. 1, Chanel was back in the spotlight after her mother revealed that
she still breastfeeds her.
"Chanel still likes my boob. She's 5 years old," Coco told
. "A lot of people are like, 'Oh, you're not getting the nutrition after 2 years old. Why do it?' And I'm like, My child's eating steak and hamburgers. She just likes a little snack every now and then and more of the bonding between the mother. Why take that away from her?" Us Weekly
Just last month, the 42-year-old dancer echoed similar sentiments,
writing on Instagram, "Who's kids also hang on the boob like Chanel? I feel forever bonded with this child."
Of course, their close connection goes beyond breastfeeding. From twinning in matching outfits to Chanel playing around in Coco's fabulous closet, this mother-daughter duo is unmatched.
But don't just take our word for it. See Chanel's most adorable moments from over the years in our gallery below!
