Ice-T's former wife Darlene Ortiz celebrated Mother's Day with a tribute she dedicated to her late grandmother. She shared it via social media along with a series of never-before-seen shots.


Connie Ortiz has passed on, but that did not stop her granddaughter Darlene Ortiz from celebrating her on Mother's Day. The gorgeous model shared rare shots of the beautiful woman.

A couple of them were retro shots; one captured a young Darlene dressed as a bride and standing next to the late Connie who wore a sheer pink dress and large tinted shades.


An even older shot she shared saw a young Connie nursing a baby with a feeding bottle. In her caption, Darlene credited her father and grandmother with taking responsibility for her.

Darlene dedicated the tribute to "loving moms and grandmothers who've passed." She also revealed that she was the baby Connie was feeding in the image and that the woman had been pregnant at the time.


Darlene confessed she misses her grandmother and urged her fans to "cherish your loved ones and no matter how old they get, spend as much quality time with them."

The rapper married Coco Austin in 2005 after meeting her on the set of a music video.


Darlene is a model with awe-inspiring accomplishments; some may even call her royalty where pop culture is concerned. This is because, in the past, she was in a relationship with the famous rapper Ice–T.

The two were considered a power couple at the peak of their relationship, and they blazed trails in the entertainment industry.

In 1998, they sent huge ripples moving through popular culture as they teased the boundaries of rap album art when she featured on the cover of his sophomore work, "Power," wearing only a swimsuit and carrying a shotgun.


Darlene and Ice T were together for 17 years, and they welcomed a child, Tracy Marrow Jr. before they called it quits. Ice T is also father to daughter LeTesha whom he shares with his former girlfriend, Adrienne.

The rapper married Coco Austin in 2005 after meeting her on the set of a music video. They share a 20-year gap in their ages but age is just a number as far as they are concerned.

They welcomed their daughter in December 2015. Her name is Chanel, and fans hope she gets a sibling soon even though Austin thinks one may be their stop.
