Coco Austin goes swimming with sharks while holding daughter Chanel: Watch

Hold on tight!

Coco Austin and her 2-year-old daughter, Chanel, had some scary fun during their vacation to The Bahamas. The mother-daughter duo went for a swim with a group of sharks!

Coco, 38, took to Instagram to share photos and video of the epic swim, which seemed to, naturally, make her pretty nervous. 

"One of the highlights while in Bahamas has been swimming with the sharks!" the TV personality wrote. "I know what you're thinking.. I watched that TV show, 'When wild animals go wild' too but these guys acted like dogs." 

She said that the sharks were very "friendly," adding, "Plus the rush of doing something crazy is half the fun. I even got Chanel to come in with me!"

But one member of their family wasn't quite so brave. 

"As you can see Ice didn't make it in the water," she said of her husband, Ice-T. 

In fact, Coco wasn't as bothered by the sharks as she was by another element of being in the pool.

"This seriously was crazy having all these sharks in the water at once," she captioned a video. "But I have to say, half the battle was holding Chanel while swimming...lol." 

The two cuties have been having a blast on vacation. Earlier in the week they dressed in matching mermaid swimsuits.

It’s been almost 14 months since Joshua Jr was born and it has taken me about that long to really get back in shape. The first pic was taken one month after he was born. The second pic was taken almost a full year later and the last pic was taken this weekend. I wish I had a few from in between the first and second so you could really see how slow my progress was but alas...I was busy covering it all up those months, not posing in my unders! Anyway, I have a beach vacation coming up, a new job I start filming in April and my deep desire to feel fit, strong and sexy propelling me forward the last two months to finally loose the last of my baby weight and do a deep dive search for the ab muscles I knew were buried under that belly somewhere! I was wholly and totally inspired by Miss @rachparcell and the before and after pics she shared after taking the #bbg challenge. I had never heard of it but she looked so damn great (she had her baby just a few months before me) that I had to check it out. I found a fantastic app called #sweat that features several different #bbg programs you can choose from and makes it incredibly easy to do anywhere, which for me means in my bedroom at home! I won’t lie, the workouts are real ass kickers but the progress I’ve made in only 5 short weeks has kept me motivated and inspired to keep going! I am so grateful I’ve had a full year to find those ab muscles and get my butt back up where it belongs and wasn’t forced by work to snap back into shape but it is time to make the strength, fitness and overall health of my body a priority and I am so grateful that @rachparcell shared her story and got this mama motivated!
