Coco Austin from "Ice Loves Coco" stars in the E! Entertainment reality docu-series with her husband Ice-T.

Coco Austin is today's modern woman, who elevates herself and others, creates new opportunities, and teaches woman of all ages how to be fit, sexy and confident, all the while embracing traditional marriage.

The woman born as Nicole Austin (March 17, 1979) and commonly known as Coco, is a television personality, glamour/fitness model, actress, dancer, author, fashion designer, entrepreneur, internet sensation and dog mom to supermodels Spartacus and Maximus. She is best known for her marriage to rapper/actor Ice-T, and her ample derriere, which was proven to be 100% real on the show "The Doctors" in February 2012.

Coco was born in Tarzana, California, and brought up in Palos Verdes, California. Her parents Tina and Steve Austin were actors who met on the set of "Bonanza." She has a younger sister, Kristy Williams, and three half brothers. As a small child, one of her brothers would mispronounce his sister's name, saying "Cole Cole" or "Co-co" in place of "Nicole." Eventually the rest of the family also began addressing Nicole as Coco. During her teenage years, Coco, her mom, and sister moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she was a tomboy who rode quads and played football.

Coco began dancing (Jazz, Tap and Ballet) at 6 years old and was introduced to the stage early by her mother. She was involved in many productions at the Albuquerque Little Theatre. In 1994 at the age of 14, Coco ventured in the world of entertainment, entering a model and talent search for Beverly Hills studios in Los Angeles, California, where she was one out of five to receive a scholarship to attend the school. At 18, Coco began specializing in swimsuit, lingerie, fitness and body modeling while teaching aerobics and studying massage therapy. She participated in numerous swimsuit competitions and modeled in calendars, catalogs and videos. She entered and won her very first fitness competition, the 1998 Miss Ujena contest in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

In 1999, Coco got invited to a New Year's Eve party at the Playboy mansion which led to meeting Hugh Hefner, working for Playboy and many other opportunities. She went on to appear in the films "Southwest Babes," "News Travel" and "Desert Rose." In 2001, Coco was introduced to actor/rapper Ice-T on a movie set. They became inseparable and married in January 2002. Coco put her modeling career on hold for six years to assist her husband, adding stability, organization and building an even stronger bond between the two. During this period Coco also ventured into web design, working on her own Cocosworld.com website, which receives millions of hits per month and made her an international internet sensation.



In September of 2006, Coco shot the DVD for her 2007 Exotics Calendar, which made close to $1 million in revenue and gave Coco a wider fan base. The DVD and calendar led to her cover for Smooth Magazine, and Coco became the first Caucasian cover model in the magazine's history. Her Smooth Magazine issue is the best selling issue to date. Coco went on grace the covers of more than 50 national magazines and launched a self-titled magazine in 2007. In 2008, Coco was featured in the celebrity centerfold for the March 2008 issue of Playboy magazine.

In November 2007, Coco made a guest appearance on NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (SVU) playing the character Traci Bell, wife to UFC world champion Forrest Griffen. She made her first appearance on SVU in 2003 in the episode "Head" and returned in January 2012, in the episode "Theatre Tricks."

In 2009, Coco began working on her new business venture Licious apparel, designed for curvaceous women. Coco delved further into the fashion world when she walked the runway in New York City Mercedes Benz Fashion Week for the Sachika Twins Fall/Winter 2011 collection. The dress Coco modeled on the runway revealed her famous bottom, and the images went viral and brought major attention to the Sachika Twins' collection. Later in 2010, Coco received an Urban Magazine Award for best body of the year.

In April 2011, the E! hit reality series "Ice Loves Coco" premiered, and focused on Coco's business ventures and dedication to her marriage, family and friends. The second season of the successful series premiered in February 2012.

Coco has also entered the publishing world, releasing her novel "Angel" in September 2011 with Forge, a division of McMillan publishing.
