UPI News Service, 02/17/2017
Coco Austin's daughter made her runway debut at just 14 months old on Wednesday.
Austin, a 37-year-old model, and husband Ice-T, a 59-year-old actor, helped daughter Chanel model for Nike in the Rookie USA show at New York Fashion Week.
Austin, Ice-T and Chanel wore coordinating red, white and black outfits from Nike's Jordan brand.
The new mom carried her daughter down the catwalk as Ice-T walked alongside and smiled for fans.
"Chanel was in a daze (not amuzed) but managed to wave to the crowd. First time ever I'm on the catwalk without heels.. I'm clumsy in flats but actually I was wearing sneaker wedges but its still weird) ..lol," she wrote on Instagram.
"Chanel was like, 'Screw posing this runway is kinda high, you got me right?' Lol," the star added.
Austin and Ice-T married in 2002 and welcomed Chanel in November 2015.
The toddler made her red carpet debut at an event in July after appearing on TV for the first time on "The Tonight Show" starring Jimmy Fallon in March.
"She's a little model," Austin told Fallon at the time.
"I've got the camera in her face at all times. She poses, she moves her eyes and looks at the camera. She's going to be awesome in five years."
Austin often shares photos of Chanel on Instagram, and posted a picture of herself and the toddler in matching monokinis in January.
