Coco Austin and Daughter Chanel Are Twins in Throwback Baby Photo

Coco Austin and her new daughter Chanel Nicole have a lot more in common than their inherent modeling skills: The two beauties look alike!

Ice-T‘s wife took to Instagram on Thursday and shared a split image of the pair and baby Chanel. In the pic, the newest addition is featured on the left and Austin is on the right, but aside from just a few subtle changes, the difference is hard to tell.

“This is kinda a crazy… The pic on the right is me when I was born and Chanel is on the left.. A lot of the resemblance,” Austin, 36, captioned the photo.

The couple welcomed their first child together days on Nov. 28, and haven’t been shy about sharing her with the world.

Just hours after their little girl was born, both parents shared photos on Instagram and Twitter announcing the birth of their bundle of joy.

“Surprise!!! Look who came early!! Welcome the new arrival of Chanel Nicole,” Austin shared on social media. “A beautiful healthy 5.7 pound baby girl.”

Three-time papa Ice-T — who already has two adult children — followed up his wife’s posts with one of his own reading, “Ladies and Gentlemen! Please allow me to introduce to the World…Baby Chanel 5.7 pounds. Love is Love.”

Another trait she got from her mother? Baby Chanel is pretty popular! She already has 194 thousand followers on her own Instagram page.

Coco and Chanel? How ridiculous! And she’s only 36?! I would have guessed 56!! For real!

Her name (Chanel Nicole) is a helluva lot better than “North” or “Saint”! I think it’s a beautiful name!

She looks 36 if not a little younger. Your jealous comment shows you up for the troll you are. The baby must look like both parents because there have been a few photos where she looks exactly like her father!

Actually she looks a lot more like ice t than coco. But of course it would kill People’s writers to liken somebody to their father. Bias against males is rampant on their site and in their magazine unfortunately.

There is literally no resemblance between them. If you are going to post a picture claiming your kid looks like you maybe actually have a photo where they do! The baby looks exactly like her father.

They dont look alike at all to me. Maybe in person, but not the pics shown.

Other than the mouth (if even that), there is no resemblance at all! What is Coco thinking haha? Sorry Coco! So annoying when you’re the one who carries them for 9 mo and then they look exactly like daddy!

What I took away from this article is that there are 194 thousand loosers out there following a baby on instagram.

Chanel is a brand, not a name, if you want to call that your baby you have to write it Chanelle.

Twins? Geez, I sure hope not …….

Coco – or whatever her name is – does not look sexy, pretty, or beautiful. Instead she looks ridiculous, old, and somewhat scary!

Coco got a doll on

Seriously? You could put any 2 baby pictures together and say they look alike……… these 2 look nothing alike!!! She looks like her Dad!!

Poor baby on

Coco will turn out to be a bigger attention hog than Kim.

The baby is cute and I can see a resemblance between them. Chanel has her father’s nose but her mom’s mouth, eyes and eyebrows.

Olly, Chanel is actually more than a fashion brand. I find it laughable that people aren’t aware it’s named after the founder Coco Chanel.

I don’t see how they look alike. Chanel is iced t all the way.

All of you commenters are so mean! What she names her child and how she dresses isn’t going to be impacted by the hateful comments of strangers on the internet. Let her be happy and get over yourselves! She’s a new mother.
