With less than two weeks until baby Chanel Nicole celebrates her very first and fabulous year of life, excited parents Coco Austin and Ice-T have finally decided where they’re going to party for their little girl’s big birthday. Despite some conflicting views on ways to bring in a child’s introductory birthday, the Edgewater couple has chosen The Sugar Factory in New York City.
Not everyone was as thrilled about throwing a 1-year-old a lavish birthday party as new mom Coco. The Law & Order: SVU star voiced his hesitation toward throwing an extravagant party for someone who won’t even remember it. The model momma initially agreed, but she later realized she couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
“I almost didn’t do a birthday for Chanel because this whole year, Ice-T has been like, ‘Really? The party is for the parents. It’s not for the baby. The baby doesn’t remember anything. She doesn’t know what the F is going on in this world yet’ but I changed my mind last-minute,” Coco told E! News exclusively. “We’re going to go have her first birthday party at Sugar Factory in Manhattan.”
The Sugar Factory, a chain with three locations in New York City and an outpost in Las Vegas, attracts celebrities including Jersey girls like Angela Simmons and the Giudice ladies. Coco plans on recycling decorations from Chanel Nicole’s photo shoot with Vintage Magazine and using The Sweet Duchess for all her dessert needs.
Although she hasn’t quite figured out what games she’s going to set up for her fashionista mini-me. As for now, their little bundle of joy can expect to have a play date with her best buddy Ludo, son of Law & Order: SVU star Kelli Giddish.
“That’s her little boyfriend on the set because when they get together, she puts her feet on top of him like lounging and she’s just kind of in awe with him,” Coco said. “She doesn’t really know much. She kind of looks at him and gives him a side eye like she can’t figure him out but he’s interesting but they’ve known each other since they were born.”
We can’t wait to see the photos from the party! Make sure to set a reminder on November 28 to wish baby Chanel Nicole a very happy birthday, along with her thousands of other followers on social media.
