Ice-T and Coco Austin’s youngest, 8-year-old daughter Chanel, is gearing up to make her mark in the entertainment industry, following in the footsteps of her famous parents. The rapper and actor opened up about Chanel’s budding interest in acting during the Law & Order: SVU 25th-anniversary celebration in New York City on Tuesday night.
While attending the event with his wife Coco Austin, who has made cameo appearances on Law & Order: SVU three times, Ice-T shared his excitement about the possibility of Chanel making a guest appearance on the long-running show. “Hell yeah!” he enthusiastically replied when asked about Chanel’s potential cameo.
Surprisingly, it turns out that Chanel and Ryan Buggle, who plays Noah (son of Mariska Hargitay’s Olivia Benson) on the show, share the same agents. “We didn’t even know that. She just got an agent,” revealed Coco Austin, shedding light on Chanel’s recent steps into the world of acting.
Ice-T recounted how Chanel was disappointed about missing the celebration and expressed her displeasure to the babysitter. Despite trying to explain their work commitments, Ice-T admitted, “She looked at the babysitter like, ‘Really?! Really?’”
This revelation comes as Ice-T and Coco Austin navigate parenthood with Chanel alongside Ice-T’s other children: daughter LeTesha, 47, and son Tracy Jr., 32. Ice-T also shared his insights into parenting in a previous interview with PEOPLE in August, emphasizing the importance of parental guidance over control.
“The key to having kids is having parental guidance — not necessarily parental control, but guidance to help them understand what it is,” Ice-T explained. He shared anecdotes about his older kids, expressing pride in the musical choices they made during their formative years.
“I just felt like it’s all rock. And when you talk, it’s kind of like they grow up with you and you share that common bond which is beautiful. It’s beautiful,” Ice-T remarked, highlighting the unique connection formed through shared experiences, including a shared appreciation for music.
