Back in 2011, Ice T and Coco Austin renewed their vows on their reality TV show, Ice Loves Coco, which ran on E!. 

During the lavish ceremony, fellow rappers Snoop Dogg and Flava Flav were present, according to Us Weekly. The event included a speech of admiration from Snoop Dogg, and a speech from Ice T's son, Tracy Marrow, who talked about how he approves of Austin as a stepmother. 

"The curtain drops, the crowd gives us great applause and we were feeling the love right there," Ice T said in the episode.

"I'm so happy that you're doing your thing in a real big way, especially in the city of L.A. I love you, Ice-T and Coco — I'm a fan and a friend," Snoop Dogg said. 

Austin herself had an emotional response after Tracy Marrow's speech, tearing up.

In a 2023 interview with People, Ice T opened up about what the vow renewal meant to him. 

"We made an agreement that we would renew the vows in five years. We didn’t. We did it in 10 years on Ice Loves Coco. We had a big thing in L.A. and it was better, because we had been married 10 years,” Ice T told the outlet.
