See the Precious Moment Ice-T's Daughter Chanel Fell Asleep with Their Bulldog Sparty

There's no one quite as cuddly as your favorite pet.

By Elizabeth Logan

There's no bond quite like the one between a kid and their pet, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Ice-T's daughter Chanel is no exception. She and the family's dog Sparty Jr. are BFFs, and enjoy nothing more than hanging out on the couch. It's almost too cute.

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Thursday, October 3 at 9/8c on NBC.

Sparty Jr., named after his grandpa — the late bulldog Spartacus, who died from complications due to knee surgery in 2020 — and Chanel cuddled up on the couch for a nap in a sweet post shared to both the girl's and the dog's Instagram pages. Looks like the only thing they enjoy more than snoozing is sharing a little ipad time, as you can see in this pic and this adorable snap.

Getting sleepy just looking at this.

Chanel's 8th birthday bash

But it's not a dogs only house! Chanel is a fan of cats, too, or at least fictional cartoon ones, as her mom Coco Austin revealed. To celebrate turning 8 years old, Chanel had a Hello Kitty-themed birthday party, and despite her best attempts to keep it casual, Austin threw one heck of a bash.

"I told my party planner , @nevaehleheventsandweddings that I should bring it down a couple notches for Chanel's birthday.. (Every year we kind go crazy with a big party) As you can see I don't think we achieved that..But Chanel humble as ever appreciated every bit," Austin wrote on Instagram, sharing clips from the special day.

Chanel, in a Hello Kitty tee, looks properly shocked and delighted by her party, which includes a sky-high cake that's somehow part carousel.

Her actual birthday was on November 28, and Ice-T marked the occasion on Instagram, sharing cute pics of Chanel, to celebrate. "HappyBirthday @babychanelnicole You’re 8yrs old today! Wow.. so fast! ❤️" Ice T captioned the post.

The rapper and actor is currently filming the 25th season of SVU, and has no plans to slow down, especially because he has a young one to take care of.

“Muhammad Ali said it best, ‘When a man has a child in the second half of his life, after 50, it resets his life. It started my life over," the actor reflected earlier this year, according to Today. “I got back healthy, now I’m back in the gym, I’m looking good, sharp, I’m strong. I’ve got to live. I can’t go nowhere. I’ve got to keep chasing these bags. I got a baby girl.” Not quite a baby anymore!
