AceShowbiz - Coco Austin's continued to cause a stir with her parenting method. The TV personality divulged that she sometimes bathes her daughter Chanel in their kitchen sink, and now people have mixed responses to the revelation.
On Thursday, September 22, the 43-year-old shared a video of her daughter using an iPad in the makeshift tub. The model, meanwhile, was busy curling her hair before they head to a Patricia Fields fashion show.
The rest of the footage found Coco showing off her outfit and bold makeup. She and Chanel then arrived at the event and enjoyed recording the fashion show together. Its caption read, "Chanel's 1st fashion show as a Prospector ..lol. This was from an hour before getting ready."
What has stolen people's attention the most was the fact that Chanel was soaking in the sink. One user in particular commented, "How do Americans think, it's okay to bath a baby let alone a child bath in the sink where you wash your dishes you eat out of." Another argued, "Are you kidding?! In the kitchen sink!! SHE's not a BABY ANYMORE!"
Others, however, didn't take it as an issue. "Sink baths are the best," one inividual opined. "Damn how big is your sink? I think I need a kitchen upgrade," someone else asked, while a different user raved, "Stunning. The sink tub so adorable."
Prior to this, Coco made headlines for her decision to keep breastfeeding the then-5-year-old girl. "Chanel still likes my boobs," she said while sharing her parenting dos and don'ts. "It's a big bonding moment for a mother and your child."
Despite getting backlash, the wife of Ice-T remained defiant. "I just don't believe society says they should stop at two," she explained about nursing her baby. "You as a mother should stop because they said so."
"I'm [not] going to stop because I feel like it's a great bonding experience between her and I," Coco pointed out. She then added, "She's my only child, it's not like I have a big family of kids, and so I'm savoring every moment with this child."
