Nicole Marrow (née Austin; born March 17, 1979),[1] commonly known as Coco Austin, Coco, Coco Marie Austin, Coco Marie, Coco-T, is an American actress, dancer, glamour model and web personality. She has been married to rapper-actor Ice-T (né Tracy Marrow) since January 2002.[1]

Early life

Austin was born in Tarzana, California, and raised in nearby Palos Verdes.[1] She has Serbian ancestry through her maternal grandparents who were born in Serbia.[2][3] Austin also has a younger sister Kristy Williams and three younger brothers. As a small child, her brother would mispronounce her name, saying "Cole Cole" or "Co-co" in place of "Nicole". Eventually her family began addressing her as Coco. The family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico when she was 10. She grew up as a tomboy, riding quads and playing football.[4] Austin began dancing (jazz, tap and ballet) at the age of six and was introduced to the stage early by her mother.

Career

At 14, Austin began specializing in swimsuit, lingerie and body modeling. She entered in swimsuit competitions and modeled for calendars, catalogs and videos. At 18, she won the 1998 Miss Ujena contest in Mexico. In 2001, at age 22, Austin worked for Playboy for six months, working their events and parties at the Playboy Mansion. She appeared in low-budget R-rated films, including Southwest Babes (2001), Desert Rose (2002), and The Dirty Monks (2004).[5]

Austin has made guest appearances on TV shows and specials including Hip-Hop Wives, the Comedy Central Roast of Flavor Flav, RuPaul's Drag Race 5, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,The Dr. Oz Show, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

She was featured in a layout in the March 2008 issue of Playboy magazine and had a role in the film Thira (2008). Austin appeared on NBC's game show Celebrity Family Feud on June 24, 2008 (with winnings donated to charity). She and her husband, rapper-actor Ice-T, competed against Joan and Melissa Rivers.[6][7]

Austin played the lead role of Bo Peep in the Las Vegas revue Peepshow from December 2012 to September 1, 2013, replacing Holly Madison in the role.[8][9][10]

Austin and Ice-T star in the reality television series Ice Loves Coco, which premiered on June 12, 2011, on E!.[11][12] The show ran for three seasons, and ended in February 2014. After the show's cancellation, tabloids reported that Austin and her husband were preparing to launch another reality series under Ryan Seacrest's production company.[13]

Personal life

Austin and rapper-actor Tracy "Ice-T" Marrow were married in January 2002.[1] Austin and Marrow renewed their wedding vows for their 10th anniversary at a well-publicized event in Hollywood on June 4, 2011.[14] They own a condominium in North Bergen, New Jersey,[15][16][17] and built a home in Edgewater, New Jersey, that was completed at the end of 2012.[18][19][20] On July 27, 2015, Austin said she had announced three days earlier, on the set of their newly begun talk show Ice & Coco , that she and Ice-T were expecting their first child together.[21][22][23] On August 3, 2015, they revealed the gender of the baby would be a girl and will be naming her Chanel.[24] There is also strong belief that she may have been cheating on husband Ice-T with fellow rapper Ap.9, when inappropriate photos and information were leaked to the the internet.
