Coco Austin has sparked a heap of controversy on social media after revealing that she bathes her daughter in the kitchen sink.

The 43-year-old model and TV personality took to her Instagram to share a video of her six-year-old Chanel - whom she shares with rapper Ice-T - getting ready for a fashion show.

However, the video has raised eyebrows with her followers after she panned the camera over to Chanel bathing in the kitchen sink.

"The sink is easiest when you have to be fast," she wrote in the overlay text of the video. "We only had an hour to get ready and figure out what to wear."

Watch her video below:

In the video, the mother explained she "only had an hour" to figure out what to wear and do her hair and makeup. She also wrote that the daughter picked her outfit out for her first-ever fashion show.

Despite the reality star's explanation, the decision to wash her youngster in the kitchen sink divided many users and sparked a debate in the comment section.

One user said: "You go in the bathroom to do your hair but can’t bathe your baby in there?! you lost me, babe."

Another wrote: "How do Americans think it’s okay to [bathe] a baby let alone a child bath in the sink where you wash your dishes you eat out of?"

A third commented: "I think she a bit [too] old for the sink! If she can put her lil heels on, she can get [in] the shower or bath tube."

A fourth shared: "Are you kidding?! In the kitchen sink!! SHE’s not a BABY ANYMORE!"

However, others were quick to defend Austin's parenting decision from the criticism and insisted that sink baths were "the best" and that

One user wrote: "So ridiculous ppl would shame you for doing this! I lived in transitional housing before n had to share a bathroom with like 6 girls n their little ones, mine was only a year old, but still, I usually chose to use to sink because it was easiest, esp in a hurry!!!"

While another commented: "Who the f*** cares how she bathes her daughter? Y’all got too much time on ya hands."

A third said: "If ALL you people don’t eat out of this sink then why are y’all so concerned??"

This isn't the first time that the celebrity couple has caused a stir over their parenting. When it was revealed that Austin and the 64-year-old rapper still push their child around in a stroller, there was a backlash.

The model took to Twitter to respond to the outrage and wrote: "Oh lord!! Really people? The world loves to criticize literally everything I do!"
