American rapper and actor, Ice-T recently turned 62 and was celebrated glowingly by his wife, Coco, who posted a sweet tribute in his honor, on social media. 


Coco took to her Instagram page to share a cute photo of herself and her husband as they embraced, with the record producer smiling heartily. In the caption that followed, Coco wrote:

"Happy birthday to my baby love!...I hope all your dreams come true’re the hardest working man I know!"

Ice-T and Coco do share an incredible love story; they got married in 2005. In an exclusive 2012 interview with Daily Mail, the rapper recalled the day he met Coco for the first time, and what attracted him to her. Ice-T said:

"It was her teeth, they were the first things I saw, and then I saw her [expletive]. And then when she turned around, that big [expletive]."

Ice-T agreed that there was an instant physical attraction to Coco, but that he was then at a point in his life where he was willing to slow down, and needed a partner.


The couple's first meeting was at one of Ice-T's friend's video shoot. After he and Coco chatted, he discovered that she was an honest and generous woman, tagging her as the nicest person he's ever met. 

Coco documented the family vacation with her followers on social media; it showed that they stayed at Hard Rock Hotel.

The lovebirds were married within two months of their very first meeting in 2002, and are now in their eighteenth year of marriage. They welcomed their first child, Chanel Nicole Marrow, in November 2015. 


Ice-T also has two older children, Letesha Marrow and Tracy Marrow Jr., from his previous relationships with Adrienne, and Darlene Ortiz, respectively.

Coco and her daughter, Chanel, 4, love to spend time together, and the duo appear wearing twinning ensembles, most of the time.


That theme continued during their family's vacation a year ago in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, where the model and her daughter rocked matching colorful swimsuits. 

Coco documented the family vacation with her followers on social media; it showed that they stayed at Hard Rock Hotel. One of her posts then showed a sleeping Chanel resting her head on her mom's body. 

Again, mother and daughter were in matching white swimsuits. In the caption to the post, Coco joked that she was the human pillow at all times, even at the pool, before adding that babies were beautiful while at sleep.
