Coco Austin43 years old, and his daughter Chanel, 6 years old, are twinning partners! The mother-daughter duo wore matching cutout leopard print swimsuits on a trip to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The model and actress shared the cute snap on Instagram on May 31 aboard a large yacht. “Quick stop in Florida..”, she wrote with palm trees, cruise ships and water emoticons. Coco and Chanel held hands while posing in their matching swimsuits and the two even rocked pigtails tied in braids. They accessorized with dark sunglasses. The only noticeable difference was the fact that Coco dyed her hair bright pink, while her young daughter looked confident in her natural brown hair.
The photo comes after Coco shared many snapshots of a family trip to the Bahamas with her daughter and husband for two decades, Ice-T, 64. This trip didn’t lack for pairing photos of the dynamic mother-daughter duo, as on May 26, Coco shared another matching swimsuit photo with Chanel. Their bikinis were made of a two-tone pink and zebra print fabric with a blue lining. They posed in shallow water on a children’s water play structure at Baha Bay Water Park at Baha Mar in Nassau, Bahamas. Coco mentioned their affinity for matching, writing in the caption, “People ask if we’ll ever get bored of matching… the answer is no!! We both love her too much since Chanel was born.
Unfortunately, the seemingly innocent photos got a lot of backlash from Instagram users, as many chastised Coco for wearing a tiny thong bikini at a family location. “I just wonder why a thong swimsuit was the way to go at the kiddie water area?” a person interrogates. “I wish she would stop posting pictures of her daughter in stuff like that…” a second viewer wrote. “It’s not that embarrassing for his daughter”, a third slammed. However, several others complimented their matching costumes and cheered on the duo. “I love the relationship, his goals never let haters slow you down,” one fan said. commented. “Congratulations and enjoy every moment, they are growing so fast!” a second user exclaimed.
Coco has certainly proven that she will never tire of the matching swimsuit trend with her daughter. On May 20, the adorable duo posed at the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas wearing black and white polka dot bikinis with a tropical print on them. Chanel looked like she was in pure bliss as she threw her hands up and posed with her mother. The day before, they put on white and black striped swimsuits cover with pink flowers. The trip seemed to last several weeks, as Coco shared two more pictures of matching swimsuits with her mini-me, not to mention the many matching outfits they had for when they weren’t having fun in the sun!
Coco and Ice-T pissed off some fans on the trip when Coco shared a photo carousel from a day of shopping, which showed their 6-year-old in a stroller. They received a steady stream of backlash, but the couple hit back and told people to worry about more important things. “This stroller thing right now where I’m using a stroller to push Chanel is ridiculous! Isn’t there a war and mass shootings going on right now and you’d rather mess with my mothering? SMH”, Coco tweeted May 24. She was referring to the May 24 massacre of 19 children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas. Her husband shared a similar sentiment, tweeting, “MFs have nothing else to say. F em all. Hmm. Lol.”
