The daughter of Law & Order: SVU star Ice T may be more social-media famous than her actor/rapper dad.
Ice T acknowledged Chanel’s popularity in a cute Instagram post, Wednesday. He posted a photo of Chanel when she was a baby. And Chanel looked fabulous. She was wearing a pair of adult sunglasses and a sweatshirt that said “instagram famous.” She finished off her baby outfit with a gold sequined bow.
And the Law & Order: SVU star captioned it: “Today @babychanelnicole just wanted to say THANKS! for all the recent internet LOVE she’s been getting… 447k IG followers. Not bad for a 5yr old.”
Wow, how did all this start? How did a 5-year-old attract almost 450,000 followers on Instagram? Well, she went viral after her mother posted a photo from her dad’s concert this weekend. Ice T fans loved Chanel, his look-alike mini me. And since Ice T posted about Chanel, Wednesday, she picked up another 1,000 followers. Her Instagram bio described her as “IceT & Coco’s Baby girl! 5teen! World Traveler, Bow Queen, Old Soul, lil , Fashionista, Animal loverModeling & performing is in my blood!”
Ice T’s Character on Law & Order: SVU Is Really Popular
Trust us, Ice T probably still is more famous than Chanel, at least for now. Ice T portrays Odafin “Fin” Tutuola on Law & Order: SVU. After Mariska Hargitay’s Olivia Benson, Ice T’s Fin is the second-longest tenured character on the show.
But when he’s not playing a detective on Law & Order: SVU, Ice T is a performer. He’s one of the OG’s of rap and hip hop. And he also performs with his heavy metal band, Body Count. Last weekend, he appeared at RockFest. It was the band’s first performance since COVID-19 silenced live music in March 2020.
Coco Austin, Ice T’s wife, posted a photo of Chanel, who was on hand to watch her daddy’s performance. Fans immediately started discussing how the adorable 5-year-old looks exactly like her dad.
Then the Law & Order: SVU star posted another photo of Chanel. This time, she was sitting on her brother’s shoulders as she kissed her dad. And as Chanel’s Instagram account says, she was rocking pink bows in her hair.
We should add that both of Chanel’s parents are famous. Ice T and Coco used to have their own reality show. He handled both Law & Order: SVU and Ice Loves Coco from 2011-13. The couple got married in 2005. Chanel was born in 2015, a week before her parents’ 10th wedding anniversary.
The 63-year-old Ice T, whose real name is Tracy Marrow, has three children. His oldest daughter is 45. His son is 29. Then there’s precocious Chanel, the style star.
Ice T returns with Law & Order: SVU for its 23rd season this fall. NBC set the season premiere for Sept. 23.
