LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22 (UPI) -- Coco Austin isn't interested in giving daughter Chanel a sibling.

The 36-year-old model discussed the possibility in a blog post on the E! website Monday. Austin said her family feels complete after welcoming Chanel with husband Ice-T in November, although she did love being pregnant.

"I'm completely satisfied with my little family right now," the star shared. "I love it. A second child doesn't even come to mind because I'm all about her. I have to say baby Chanel is like my one and only. I can say that."

"I'm looking forward to the continuation of this bonding," she added. "Not only am I bonding with Chanel and she's bonding with me, I'm bonding with Ice. It's just this whole family bonding in a totally different way than I expected."

Chanel made her television debut Friday during Austin's appearance on The Dr. Oz Show. The model revealed she gave birth against the odds due to her high blood pressure, which has been 174/111 since she was a child.

"I actually had high blood pressure since [I was] six years old," the star told host Mehmet Oz. "[Doctors] didn't want me to have a baby. They said, 'You can't have a baby until you get this under control' ... I got it under control."

"My doctor said I couldn't have children cuz I would have a stroke if I didn't get it under control," she also explained on Instagram. "I was [expletive] to hear that and wanted a child even more. So Chanel is a blessing."

Austin and Ice-T, born Tracy Morrow, married in 2002. The 58-year-old actor is also father to 39-year-old daughter LeTesha and 23-year-old son Tracy Morrow, Jr., with previous partners, and continues to star as Det. Odafin Tutuola on Law & Order: SVU.
