Steve was admitted to an Arizona hospital for symptoms of coronavirus last month.
Opening up to Page Six, Coco, 41, said: “I just want him to pull through. 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.”
Steve is being treated at Abrazo ArrowHead Hospital in Glendale.

Doctors have since told Coco that he may need to be put on a ventilator due to pneumonia in both of his lungs.
Meanwhile, the model is currently staying at her second home in Arizona to be near to her dad during the horrific time.
She continued: “He’s at the point where he can’t even talk. He can’t even say a word. For him to say ‘no’ or ‘yes’ is so hard that I have to use texting now, and today he doesn’t even want to text anymore.
“He’s just getting so frustrated that he’s in this position that he doesn’t want to get on the phone.”

The TV personality went on to reveal her dad’s symptoms worsened after he began to experience shortness of breath on Father’s Day.
Before being taken into hospital, he also complained of “being stabbed throughout his body,” with the family seeking medical advice nine days later.
She added: “Knowing what he’s gone through, he let this disease or virus sit in him for nine days before doing anything.
“That’s basically what they say is too late.”

Sadly for Coco – who shares four-year-old daughter Chanel with her rapper husband – two of her aunts also have the killer virus.
She concluded: “It’s like, ‘Oh my God, like, my family is falling apart.
“We’re here thinking we came to Arizona to get away from the craziness in New York and New Jersey, and I feel like we now swallowed it up in the spike that just happened here.”
Over the past week, Arizona has seen an average of 3,500 new cases a day.
