Celebrity baby Chanel Nicole, daughter of rapper Ice-T and model Coco Austin, turned eight months old on Thursday, and in her short life, is already one of the most popular children on social media, with a combined 527,000 followers on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Mama Coco has documented Chanel’s every adorable move, from smiling to sleeping to playing with the family bulldogs, her “big bros” Spartacus and Maximus, as well as her red carpet fashion debut.
We here at OMJ are obviously big Chanel fans, because what’s not to love? She sees like a genuinely happy baby who’s expressive and adorable, plus Coco goes out of her way to create cute outfits, like his homage to her daughter’s namesake, Coco Chanel.
In a recent interview with E!, Coco discussed the differing reactions she receives on her own social media accounts, including her popular Instagram, where she boasts 2.4 million followers, versus the response to Chanel’s. “I don’t think I’ll ever get away from the negativity. I noticed that on Chanel’s page, there has not been one hater on her page. On her Instagram, it’s all Chanel lovers. What I’ve noticed on my page is that I’m the one with haters. I’m the one that people want to get on. It’s nice to go to a page and have not one negative thing on there. I didn’t know it was out there, but she’s now up to 400,000 followers and knowing that they are all lovers, it makes me believe that there’s hope for humanity,” Coco said.
As it should be. After having posted about Chanel numerous times over the last few months and marveling at her adorableness (she seems to get cuter with each photo I see), even though she’s a stranger, I feel protective over her. How could anyone not love this sweet baby, I ask you?
And if you’ll indulge seeing my favorite image of her once again, with her head in a Snapchat bread filter:
