''When my daughter was born, The first thing that came to my mind when Coco had the baby was, ‘You cannot die,’” he told the outlet. â€œI mean, if you don't think about yourself, think about the people that love you. Take care of yourself, before it's too late.''

Ice T also stays on top of getting enough sleep, as he confessed in a January interview with Access that he's actually able to doze off while filming SVU, and snap back into character without missing a beat. 

"I would fall asleep, because we were shooting at 2 or 3 in the morning. Sometimes with these shows, we shoot into the night. And I would hear my cue and I would get up and go: 'Well obviously, he didn't ask the police. Let's check the records.' And I'm falling asleep, and I would listen for my cue," he said.
