Coco Austin Reveals She Only Showers When ‘Feeling Icky’ + Responds To Backlash Over Breastfeeding Her & Ice-T’s 5-Year-Old Daughter
Coco Austin has jumped on the celebrity trend of discussing her bathing habits.
Yesterday (Tuesday, Aug. 10th), Coco Austin sat down with E!’s Daily Pop for an interview. During her chat, she was asked about her bathing habits, as various celebrities like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, and Jake Gyllenhaal have recently spoken on the topic. Co-host Morgan Stewart asked:
“What [are] your thoughts on bathing? I know, this is a real thing. Do you feel like showering every day is necessary, or do you shower only when you feel dirty?”
In response, Coco Austin stated:
“Well, I don’t shower every day. I do it when needed. My hair, I wash my hair every four days. But when I’m feeling icky, I’ll get in the shower. Whether that’s every day, that may be–but it could be every three days. I kinda keep myself clean, though. Like if I feel like my pits smell or something, I just take some wash cloths and some soap to it. I might not have to clean my whole body. And then I got a bidet… so I don’t necessarily have to take a shower.”

During her interview, she also addressed the backlash she received over breastfeeding her and Ice-T‘s 5-year-old daughter, Chanel, who was also present during the interview. In response to the backlash, she stated:
“I’m not a[n] arguer. Whatever you wanna believe, you can believe. But I just don’t believe [because] society says ‘They should stop at two’ [that] you as a mother should stop because they said so. I’m [not] gonna stop because I feel like it’s a great bonding experience between her and I… She’s my only child, it’s not like I have a big family of kids, and so I’m savoring every moment with this child.”
Coco Austin continued:
“I always thought I wasn’t gonna go on and on with this breastfeeding thing. I thought I would stop more like around 1. But then I loved it too much, and I was like ‘I feel like I’m wanted, like she wants me.’ I think a lot of mothers would understand… Back in the day, we used to live – big 8-10 [person] families in one room. They would feed them, co-sleep with them, nurse them. Now since it’s a new day, we have to change the rule. Why change the rule?”
She added that Ice-T fully supports her decision.
