Coco Austin's baby struggle

Coco Austin's baby struggle

Coco Austin was told she couldn't have children.

The 'Ice and Coco' star - who welcomed daughter Chanel into the world in November - has revealed she has suffered from blood pressure problems since she was six-years-old.

Sharing a picture on Instagram documenting her time on the Dr Oz show where she opened up about her medical issues, she wrote: "Chanel joins us after we talk about my blood pressure problems.. My doctor said I couldn't have children cuz I would have a stroke If I didn't get it under control..

"I was p***ed to hear that and wanted a child even more. So Chanel is a blessing.. My blood pressure was 174/111 since I was six years old.. it's in the family and no right diet or exercise can help.."

Meanwhile, Coco previously hit back at her critics over claims she isn't "hands on" with her daughter.

She wrote: "Some comments really frustrate me at times..some assume since u have money and live in a "celebrity world" that you don't do s**t!

"Let me add, I don't have nannies or babysitters. I've been 100% hands on w/Chanel. I also clean my own house & do my own laundry #100%wife

"I'm totally serious when I say I love being a wife.I like the role I play..I can be crazy coco at times but I have a good heart (sic)"
