'Law & Order' Star Ice-T Celebrates Daughter Chanel's 5th Birthday with a Touching Tribute
"Law & Order" star Ice-T took to Instagram to share a series of pictures and a touching birthday note celebrating his youngest daughter, Chanel Nicole, who recently turned five.
Ice-T's youngest daughter, Chanel Nicole, whom he shares with actress Coco Austin recently turned five, and the "Law & Order" actor was sure to celebrate the milestone with a sweet social media tribute.
Taking to Instagram, Ice-T shared a collection of pictures featuring his baby girl. The first slide featured an adorable photo of Chanel donning a black T-shirt and a beanie while flashing a charming smile.
The next slide saw Chanel as a tiny tot while lounging in a big pink balloon. The third picture showed her rocking a pink tutu and a gorgeous crown while posing for a photoshoot.
Ice-T accompanied the picture with a caption wishing Chanel a happy birthday while noting that time flies really fast. The doting father wrote:
"HappyBirthday to @babychanelnicole She's 5yrs old today! Yes, people. Time flies. ???❤️"
Fans and followers of the actor seemed to be thrilled by the post as they soon took to the comments section with birthday wishes for Chanel.
In addition to Ice-T and his fans, Chanel also received a touching birthday tribute from her mother. Taking to Instagram, Austin shared a heartwarming picture of her little girl flashing a gorgeous smile.
Austin and her husband tied the knot in 2002 after dating for two years, but it was not until 2015 that the couple welcomed Chanel.
The picture saw Chanel donning black leggings and a colorful top with a purple protective face mask to match. The adorable little girl wore her hair in pigtails accessorized with yellow ribbons.
Just like her husband, Austin accompanied the image with a caption wishing her daughter a happy birthday while noting that time goes by really fast. The excited mother wrote:
"Can't believe this child turned five today!! ... days go by fast for real."
Austin and her husband tied the knot in 2002 after dating for two years, but it was not until 2015 that the couple welcomed Chanel, their first child, and the youngest for Ice-T. The actor is also a father to two older kids from previous relationships.
While speaking in 2016, Austin explained that they waited to have a child because she had many things she wanted to do before having a baby.
However, after getting all of her plans out of the way, Austin decided she was ready to be a mother, and as expected, Chanel's birth brought a profound love into her and Ice-T's lives.
It, therefore, came as no surprise that Ice-T could not help gushing about his love for Chanel after she was born. Now, five years after, the actor is still in awe of his beautiful daughter, who has brought nothing but joy into his life.
