Coco Austin Speaks on Her Father’s COVID-19 Battle
We’re sad to report that Coco Austin’s dad Steve has been hospitalized with COVID-19 complications, and now the model is speaking out in an emotional interview with Page Six.
“I just want him to pull through,” she told the outlet. “I’ve been sending as much love as I can but there’s only so much I can do from a distance. I want to be in the room with him right now and hold his hands, and just let him know that his family loves him, to push through, and this is too early for him to go.”
Coco added that the ordeal has her feeling like “my family is falling apart.”
The model originally came to Arizona to get away from the outbreak in New York and New Jersey, but now she feels “like we now swallowed it up in the spike that just happened here.”
Coco spoke about her dad’s suffering earlier this week on social media as well.
“My tough as an ox dad, the one that never goes to the doctor, the one that doesn’t even take Tylenol for pain, the one that never EVER gets sick, [we’re] talking about the original Steve Austin (cuz that’s his real name) is in the ICU requiring oxygen for #covid19,” she wrote in a series of photos with Steve. “We have a big family, in the second photo is my dad with all his kids.”
We’re sending you love and light, Coco.
