Chanel's life sure has been exciting lately. Last month, Ice T and his wife, Coco Austin took Chanel to New York City to celebrate the 50th anniversary of hip-hop. In the photo posted to Austin's official Instagram page, Chanel posed next to someone dressed as the Statue of Liberty in the middle of Times Square.

Then, in June, Ice T took Chanel onstage when he was performing at a concert in Brooklyn. In the sweet clip, Ice T held his daughter while while he sang "Hey Love" by Delfonics to an eager crowd.

In a recent interview with People, Ice T discussed how he feels about his daughter's active social media presence. 

"It's fun and she likes doing it. If she didn't, we definitely wouldn't do it," he told the outlet. "When Chanel was born, we got her social media because we knew that we were gonna be the parents that were gonna show a hundred pictures of their kid because we were proud. I didn't want to put it all on my page, because then I'd be that dad that's always showing pictures of his kids. So we said got her a page that way if people want to watch our child grow, they can. We're not afraid of anything happening. People will say, ‘don’t show her face.’ We're not concerned with that," he added.
