“I want to have something I gave birth to early in life and be like, ‘You can help me out now!’ ”

The busty blonde, 36, also described feeling “pressure” to have her own children.

She previously said: “There’s a lot of peer pressure for me. It’s not just my family that’s giving it, it’s the world…When the time’s right, I will.”

Law & Order: SVU’ star Ice T added at the time: “At the end of the day, it’s Coco’s call. She puts in the order and I can do the deed.”

The happy news came shortly after it was revealed the couple have landed their own daily talk show, ‘Ice and Coco’, which will premiere on Fox channels on August 3.

Speaking about the show, Ice – whose real name is Tracy Lauren Marrow – said: “Three words to describe our show would be real, crazy and funky. This show reflects our life. It will be hip, pop culture, fashion, everything.”
