Ice-T and Coco Austin have been married for a long time and share a lovely daughter, Chanel Nicole. Despite living a wonderful family life, the eccentric pair have received criticism for their odd parenting choices.


Previously, internet users shamed Coco for allowing six-year-old Chanel to ride in the stroller while shopping at a mall. Others mocked the rapper's wife, suggesting that her daughter should ride in a wagon rather than a pram.

The recent online humiliation was just one of the couple's long list of parenting choices fans ridicule and find questionable. Despite the backlash, the 64-year-old musician and Coco keep making smart decisions for their family.

Ice-T and Coco are among the most successful and eccentric pairs in Hollywood. The couple met on a video set in 2005. On meeting the blonde bombshell, he said he first noticed her teeth, adding:

"And then I saw her boobs. And then when she turned around, that big butt."

Ice-T was having a bad day on set, so his pals sent Coco to make him feel better. The "Midnight" hitmaker charmed his way into her heart using a witty pick-up line as they struck up a conversation.



Lovestruck, Ice-T married the glamour model after two months of dating in 2005 and renewed their sweet vows in 2011. They have now been happily married for 17 years.

Since their wedding, the couple dabbled in several TV projects.

The two have shared some ups and downs in their relationship, just like other couples. Ice-T noted that one of the secrets to a long-lasting union is finding a compatible partner committed to being with you.

The musician-turned-TV actor compared marriage to movie casting, emphasizing that choosing the right person for the role must be ready for all the "scenes" in life.

Meanwhile, Coco shared that old-fashioned tricks have helped them maintain their marriage. Weekend date nights, dining out, and going to the movies were among the couple's gimmicks.


Since their wedding, the couple dabbled in several TV projects. From 2011 to 2013, they starred in their reality TV series "Ice Loves Coco" and the "Ice & Coco" in 2015.

Besides producing reality shows, Ice-T is part of the "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" cast, playing sergeant Odafin Tutuola. He also devoted his time to producing music.



Ice-T has three children. He and Coco welcomed their daughter Chanel in 2015, who shares a striking resemblance to the proud dad. The hip-hop star has grown-up children from previous relationships.

LeTesha is Ice-T's eldest daughter, born on March 20, 1976. The multi-talented TV actor shares his daughter with Adrienne, his former high school girlfriend.


Ice-T was only 18 when he and Adrienne raised LeTesha while still in high school. LeTesha is now a talented writer, director, and actress.

In addition to her creative pursuits in the entertainment industry, Ice-T's 46-year-old daughter has launched her OnlyFans account. She has a son named Elyjah.

Meanwhile, Ice-T shares his only son, Ice Tracy Jr., with his ex-fiancée Darlene Ortiz. Ice Tracy has become the spitting image of the "New Jack City" actor.

The father-son duo shares many similar interests, including a passion for music. Ice Tracy, now 30, performs with his father's band, Body Count.
