Coco Austin’s father, Steve Austin, is battling COVID-19 in the hospital, her husband, Ice-T, revealed on Twitter on Tuesday.
“Cocos father checked into the Hospital yesterday,” the rapper, 62, captioned a picture of his father-in-law wearing an oxygen mask and hospital gown. “Covid in AZ.”
A Twitter user remarked that the tone Ice-T’s tweet appeared to show was he wasn’t “too concerned,” so the “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” star wrote back, “You dont sound too SMART.. Dumbfk.”
Coco, 41, has not yet commented on her father’s condition on her social media.
Page Six has reached out to her rep for comment.
On June 21, the model shared a special tribute to her dad, writing, “Fathers Day with my dad is always special! Nice day for BBQ and watching movies. He’s the original Steve Austin… LOVE YOU ALWAYS!” Steve appeared to be in good spirits in the photos.
Earlier this week, Arizona broke the record for the most single-day coronavirus infections in the state with 3,858 cases on Sunday.
