Ice T Just Ain't With Giving Wife Coco a 'Push Gift'

Let's face it, having a baby -- let alone carrying one for almost a year -- is no walk in the park. No matter your method of delivery, there's a pretty good chance you'll look like you've been through the struggle (it's real). Perhaps Coco should tell her husband Ice T this. Because Ice T refuses to give Coco a push gift.


"I ain't with it," Ice tells his wife Coco on their self-titled daytime talk show, Ice & Coco. "You gonna push that baby out, whether you want to or not. Oh you think you need to get rewarded for having a baby?"

In case your partner has been trying to keep you in the Matrix, a "push gift" is a present given to a mom before or after she gives birth. Big or small, the gift is a tangible way of saying thanks for bringing life into this world.

"You want a gift, I get it," clarifies Ice. "But shouldn't the baby be the gift?"

"That's true," agrees Coco.

Check out the funny clip:

"I think if you appreciate your wife and she's been through the struggle, you can give her a gift," mentions Ice. "I don't think it should be demanded or expected."

Obviously Ice T was trying to have a bit of fun with his wife and the audience, but does he bring up a good point? Should women not get a push gift for having a baby?

Am I mad that my husband didn't get me a push gift after I gave him not one, but TWO babies in two years? Did it bother me to the point of adding a little extra into his food because he never once thought being pregnant for years without my friend Mr. Riesling and Ms. Pinot  -- let alone a turkey sandwich (curse the person who said no deli meats!) -- would be hard?


I'm kidding. In all honesty, my husband is completely clueless to many things -- including the concept of a push gift. God bless him when he brought me a Subway sandwich after our second child (he has since done more "romantic" things).

While it would be nice for us mommies to get the hook-up from time to time, I don't think gifts need to be a mandatory thing. Then again, push gifts could be the answer to that pointless comment men make about wishing they could help carry the baby, but can't since they're dudes.
