EDGEWATER, N.J. -- No sooner had the daughter of gangsta rap pioneer Ice T and Coco Austin of Edgewater arrived on Saturday than she had her own Twitter page.
"What's crackin world!! No haters allowed," the proud parents tweeted for Baby Chanel Nicole , who had 12,800 followers as of Sunday morning.
Another photo tweet says: "This is me when I just touched down chillin with mom. I love her. Dad[']s cool too!"
"I'm doing great!" Austin tweeted on her own page . "Had the best delivery! I pushed Chanel out in 3 tries!"
Chanel was 5.7 pounds, said Austin, a model, actress and self-proclaimed "fitness guru."
Austin tweeted earlier on Saturday that she'd reached her "37 week bump."
"This baby is coming early," she wrote. "A mother('s) intuition."
Chanel is her first child and Ice T's third. The couple were married in 2001. They announced the impending arrival of baby Chanel on the first episode of their FOX show "Ice & Coco" three months ago.
The 57-year-old gangsta rapper and actor, whose real name is Tracy Marrow, is a Newark native who grew up in Summit before moving to Los Angeles.
"Ladies and Gentlemen!" he tweeted on his own page. "Please allow me to introduce to the World.... Baby Chanel 5.7 pounds. Love is Love."
