The 57-year-old Law & Order: SVU star also couldn't help but share his excitement, tweeting, "Oh sh*t! The news is out. YES. We're having a baby."
Ice T and Coco's pregnancy news is pretty exciting considering they've been talking about starting a family since their stint on reality show Ice Loves Coco a few years ago. According to People, doctors warned Coco at the time that getting pregnant could be risky because of her health and high blood pressure.
Still, the duo went for it when they felt like it was the right time. "It wasn't a big deal," she said. "It was actually shocking how easily it happened. It's beautiful how life actually works. Now that I have a little thing inside of me moving around, it's amazing."
Congrats to the couple!
