AceShowbiz - Rapper Ice-T has defended his wife, Coco Austin, after she posted a photo of herself breastfeeding the couple's almost four-year-old daughter on a plane.
The model and entrepreneur was bombarded with comments and criticisms after the snap hit social media earlier this week, with many people suggesting three-year-old Chanel was too old to still be nursing.
The "Cop Killer" hitmaker and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" star has urged the trolls to relax, insisting Chanel "still wants the boob" and his wife is happy to breastfeed.
"They make it like the baby only... breastfeeds...," Ice-T tells TMZ. "She eats food. She eats f**king cheeseburgers."
"Every once in a while, she wants to get close to her mom."
In a caption accompanying the mother-and-baby photo, Coco wrote: "I'm so blessed to have this unbelievable experience in this thing called Nursing... I had a hard time breastfeeding the 1st week of when Chanel was born, I almost gave up but my family told me to hang for another week. They told me I don't want to miss this special moment you have with your child..."
"I hung in there and now almost 4 years later Chanel still wants the boob... It's more of a comfort thing now and of course she eats regular but nap time and night time are our time and I'm lucky she hasn't grown out it yet because when that moment comes I will be so sad."
