Ice T is a household name due to his legendary music career and iconic role as Sgt. Fin Tutuola on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. But when the work day is done, the SVU actor spends quality time with those in his own household; Ice T's wife, Coco Austin, and their adorable 7-year-old daughter, Chanel Nicole. 

How to Watch

Watch Law & Order: Special Victims Unit on NBC and Peacock.

On April 23, Ice T and Coco took little Chanel out on the town to soak in some seriously stunning views of the NYC. skyline. Ice T shared a pic from the day on Instagram, posting an adorable selfie from their excursion. Chanel looks like just her dad's twin!

"The ICE FAMILY 💎 Jersey view of NY," Ice T captioned the sweet IG post. The entire family cheeses for the camera, with Ice T and Chanel sporting identical dimples. The resemblance is wild, and it looks like the Ice T family had a blast while making the most of the weekend. 

Ice T and Austin welcomed Chanel to the world in 2015. At his Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, the star shared that Chanel already flaunts star power, which will take center stage when she tags along with Ice T and Body Count at the upcoming Sick New World Festival. All that considered, the rapper's latest outing with the family is far from the first time the SVU actor has whipped out the camera to capture a special memory.

"I'm taking a lot of pictures. I'm that same guy that you go, 'Oh, my daughter…' and before I know it I'm showing you pictures," Ice T said in a 2020 interview with People. "I said that I'm not going to be that guy, but now I'm just like, 'Wait, look,' and, 'Wait, look at this one,' and, 'Wait a minute, hold up.' You can't help it. You're just happy."

And the cuteness doesn't end there. In a March interview, Ice T explained that Chanel's birth gave the SVU actor a new lease on life. “Muhammad Ali said it best, ‘When a man has a child in the second half of his life, after 50, it resets his life,’” Ice T said via TODAY. “It started my life over.”

"I got back healthy, now I’m back in the gym, I’m looking good, sharp, I’m strong," Ice T revealed. "I’ve got to live. I can’t go nowhere. I’ve got to keep chasing these bags. I got a baby girl.”
