The Meadowland actress recently gushed about her toddler.
“He’s a little musician,” she said. “He’s wonderful. He’s great…I’m very lucky.”
The actress – who plays the wife of Bobby Cannavale‘s character – also talked about her role in the Vinyl.
“I said to HBO and everyone involved, if you’re looking for the long suffering wife who isn’t going to develop beyond that, if that’s the story you want to tell about a woman who has had her wings clipped, that’s not what I’m interested in playing,” she said. “I respect that, and I’ll watch the show every week, but that’s not for me.”
In a new blog post for E! News, model mom Coco Austin defends her decision to regularly post photos of her mini-fashionista, 2-month-old daughter Chanel, and the “flack” she’s received for calling her baby a “doll.”
“During my pregnancy, I wanted to start a Twitter and Instagram for Chanel even before she was born and I suggested it to Ice and he said, ‘Don’t get ahead of yourself.’ Fast-forward to the day she was born and Ice was so excited and taking all these pictures,” she writes.
The model-TV host went on to say she and her husband, actor-rapper Ice-T, are every bit the proud new parents.
“He was like I’m going to start a Twitter and I joked ‘Don’t get ahead of yourself.’ He just thought it was a really good thing at that time,” she says. “Both Ice and I have our own fan bases and not everybody is going to want to see Chanel every day, some people, but not everybody.”
She adds: “We started this page of her’s for people who want to see her grow up and see her outfits and headbands of the week. It’s more for people who want to keep an eye on her while not overloading our pages with photos of her.”
The proud mama went on to gush about her baby’s wardrobe.
“This little girl is already so stylish. You should see her closet—all about the shoes and she has an amazing shoe collection,” she writes. “She’s now becoming this headband Princess. She doesn’t have long hair yet, but she rocks them bows. A lot of her fans send her gifts so she has an overload of headbands and outfits. She’s like my little doll. This is my very first doll ever because I never owned a doll in my life and this is my real-life doll. Now I get so much flack for saying that and it bothers me.”
The new mom also defended her parenting style.
“Of course I know she’s a real human being,” she says. “Don’t you know I know that? In these pictures, you can see how much love I have for her. Should I just dress her up in a normal T-shirt? Is that better? Why can’t I just have my moment of dressing my daughter up? Why is that such a negative thing? Does she look like she’s really mad in these pictures? She actually looks very happy dressed up.”
She adds: “I’m damned if I do, damned if I don’t. No matter what I post on Chanel, people are going to find something negative about it. It amazes me. If you’re really not liking the way I do things, get off my page. I just avoid them.”
The model and the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Ice-T, 57, welcomed their baby girl on Nov. 28.
“I have a few drawers full,” Fox said of her kimono collection. “I don’t know exactly how many that is…My kids love it, especially Noah. He finds that to be a very magical thing when I float down the stairs in my silk kimono. He’s very taken by that, and that’s sort of an image I like to brand into him.”
DeGeneres then gifted Fox with a personalized kimono that read “FOXY MAMA.”
The New Girl star also talked about turning 30 on May 16.
“It’s not a problem,” said Fox of getting older. “When you’re young, that sounds so old. When you’re in high school or even when you’re in your early 20s, it still sounds like, ‘By the time I’m 30, I should just give up.’ What’s the point of going on at that age?’” she explained to the host. “And then you turn 30 –I’m turning 30 later this year—you don’t feel any older at all.”
Fox is replacing Zooey Deschanel in the FOX sitcom, but only for a five-episode stint while Deschanel is on maternity leave. Fox’s run on the popular TV show starts Tuesday, Feb. 9.
