Pass the bottles of Dusse and spark the "It's a Girl" cigars, a congratulations is in order. Yesterday (Nov. 28), Ice-T's wife CoCo gave birth to the couple's first child. The timing of the birth was apparently a surprise to the couple as the baby girl came before her due date. As with all proud social media conscious mothers, CoCo took to Instagram to share the special moment with the public.

"Surprise!!! Look who came early!! Welcome the new arrival of Chanel Nicole," she captioned a photo of the adorable yawning newborn. "A beautiful healthy 5.7 pound and 18 inch baby girl .Ice and I are so proud! I cried while she was coming out I was so excited to meet her!"

"She later posted another photo with her, the baby and a smiling from ear-to-ear Ice-T. "Thanks so much for all the warm wishes today," she noted under the inaugural family photo. "I'm doing great! I had the best delivery! I pushed Chanel out in 3 tries! This was taken not 5 minutes after delivery,called skin to skin contact..better for a more bonding experience."

Ice-T and CoCo wed in January 2002 and renewed their vows for their 10th anniversary during a much-publicized event in Hollywood in 2011. In July, the couple revealed they were expecting during an episode of their talk show Ice & CoCo.

Ice-T has a daughter, LeTeshea, 39, from a previous relationship, and a son, Ice Tracy Marrow, 23, from his previous marriage to Darlene Ortiz.
