Coco Austin bans pregnancy advice

Coco Austin and Ice-T hate being given pregnancy advice.

The 'Ice And Coco' stars are expecting their first child together but have insisted they won't be accepting any pearls of wisdom from any "outsiders".

The 57-year-old rapper said: "We hate advice from outsiders. That's one of the reasons she wanted to keep it a secret. As soon as you're pregnant, people come to you with impending doom ... You have some people that will come up to you and go, 'Oh, it's gonna be wonderful,' but most people are like, 'You know your life is over, right? You're not gonna ever sleep again.'"

And the 36-year-old star has admitted she finds it the "worst" being given tips by fellow mothers in the neighbourhood.

She shared: "Oh my God, it's the worst! Everybody is in my area, you know, 'You can't wear heels anymore, don't eat fish.' They're always telling me what to do and I'm like, 'Okay, well I haven't done anything bad.'"

And with their little girl, who they are planning to name Chanel, due in December, Coco has been working on her fitness levels and has revealed she's lost 10 pounds since finding out she was expecting.

Speaking on Late Night with Seth Meyers, she said: "I've kind of been very healthy. As a matter of fact, I've lost 10 pounds instead of [gaining] weight.

"People look at me, they're like, 'Why do you look so skinny?' I lost it because I stopped drinking alcohol... So if you want to lose 10 pounds, get pregnant!"
