Ice-T Says Wife’s Father Has Permanent Lung Damage From Coronavirus [VIDEO}

*Ice-T made a virtual appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, and gave an update on his father-in-law’s health status. 

Earlier this month, Ice’s wife, Coco Austin, revealed that her father Steve had to be hospitalized in Arizona due to the coronavirus.

Ice-T told Kimmel, “Coco’s dad is a Harley Davidson-riding, no-masking type of dude,” he said. “[Coronavirus] put him on his back.”

He went on to explain that Steve had pneumonia in both lungs, and was almost put on a ventilator.

“It took him a month to make it out of the hospital,” he said. “Now he’s home, but his lungs are damaged indefinitely.”

Ice-T is using his father-in-law’s condition to bring more awareness to the seriousness of the virus.

“There are still non-believers,” he said. “I’ve made it through so much in my life, I don’t want to die because of this — especially with a new daughter. I’m aware and I’m concerned and I’m cautious.”

On Instagram, Austin shared photos of herself with her father, calling his diagnosis a surprise since he “never EVER gets sick.”

“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 thats his real name) is in the ICU requiring oxygen for #covid19,” she wrote on June 30. “He is having trouble breathing and feels like he is being stabbed with pins throughout his body.”

“For all the people that say it can’t happen to your family..think again,” she continued. “Sending happy thoughts to my father and all the families that are dealing with it.”
