Ice T and his wife, Coco Austin, love spending time with their little girl. 

How to Watch

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

On February 6, Austin posted a heartwarming throwback video of herself and her 8-year-old daughter, Chanel, sharing a sweet moment. In the clip, Austin and Chanel chilled on some rocks by a pool while wearing matching blue leapord and striped bikinis. ''I Love You Always Forever'' by Donna Lewis played in the background, and Chanel adorably waved to the camera before giving her mom a kiss.

'We're doing a lot of videos!'' she said. How cute!

''Everybody always wants more Chanel on my page!'' Austin wrote in the caption. "I have lots of unseen videos Im gonna start posting
#lostfootage #lilchanel #icelovescoco #follow #besties #twinning."

How Chanel celebrated her 8th birthday

Chanel celebrated her eighth birthday on November 28, 2023, and her proud papa took to his official Instagram page to share some throwback pictures of her when she was just a baby. 

"HappyBirthday @babychanelnicole You’re 8yrs old today! Wow.. so fast! ❤️," the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star captioned the post. Time sure does fly!


To make her birthday even better, the whole family got together for a fun Disneyland trip in December. Her 33-year-old brother, Tracy Marrow Jr. (also known as Lil' Ice) was there to support her, and her grandma, Tina, and aunt, Kristy, were also present. 

In the pictures that Austin posted, we get to see the family posing on a car statue while Chanel pretended to drive it. We also got a sweet selfie with Chanel and Tracy, and a funny snapshot of them pretending to break out of a jail cell. 

"The fam made it to Disneyland!! Its always a magical place everytime we go #celebrate #chanelsbirthday #8yearsold," Austin captioned the post.

Chanel is a little superstar herself, with an Instagram page with over 400k followers. In an interview with People, her father discussed why he feels comfortable with her 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."
