Coco Austin Responds to Critics Who Thinks She's Exploiting Her Baby Girl

Coco Austin

No matter how many sleepless nights you have, nothing compares to being a mother. Like many, Coco Austin is basking in the warmth of her baby girl, Chanel Nicole. Yet, the 36-year-old new mom has come under fire for "exploiting" her newborn.



This whole debacle happened after Coco shared a photo of daughter Chanel on Facebook. Playfully showing her little girl's love of music (surely Ice T is one proud papa), most commentors thought it was harmless ... except for one who questioned mama Coco's motives.

"Coco darling, don’t exploit your newborn beautiful lil angel. I say with respect honey," wrote the woman.

Not sitting quiet, Coco responded to her commentor in an honest, and pretty respectful manner.

How is this exploiting her? I’m proud that I’m finally a mama … does she not look happy?

By the look of things, the comment has been removed.

Okay ... so, I think I get what this person was trying to say -- but don't think Coco is exploiting her baby. She's just a new mother, who can't help but share all the lovable moments she's having with her child. Most of us are either guilty of doing the same, or know someone who can turn a Facebook newsfeed into a personal photo album.

It happens.

Sure, I wouldn't make an Instagram account for my baby, but that's just me. I also don't plan to share photos of my boys taking a bath, but don't knock those who choose to do so.

With so much craziness happening in the world, why can't we focus on the beautiful bond a mother has with her child? I'm sure Coco and Ice T are aware they need to take steps to keep their daughter safe, but let this mama share her happy moments.

Everyone celebrates life differently.
