Good news for Law & Order: SVU fans! Nope, Taylor Swift didn't get another pet and name it after Olivia Benson. But it's even better than that: Ice-T, aka Detective Tutuola, just had a new baby. On Saturday, Ice-T's wife Nicole "Coco" Austin gave birth to their daughter, Chanel Nicole. The Ice Loves Coco couple announced their baby news back in July. This is their first child together and it's certainly something to be thankful for this holiday season. On Saturday, Coco posted a photo of the adorable infant with the following caption:
Surprise!!! Look who came early!! Welcome the new arrival of Chanel Nicole.. A beautiful healthy 5.7 pound and 18 inch baby girl .Ice and I are so proud! I cried while she was coming out I was so excited to meet her!
Awww! How sweet is that? The new mom shared that baby Chanel already has her own Instagram account. In less than a day, the baby amassed more than 43,000 followers. Pretty impressive, huh? Proving to be the most tech-savvy child, Chanel is also on Twitter — because one social media account just isn't enough. It's especially exciting, since the couple is already posting the most precious pictures. Usually fans have to wait weeks to see cute celebrity kids, but these two were just so proud and excited they decided not to wait. Like, they didn't even wait an entire day.
Since I'm sure you're eager to see the new baby, here are the highlights from Chanel's first day in the world. If the photos are any indication, it's been an eventful 24 hours.
1. Baby's First Selfie
Just look at that bow! Ridiculously cute.
2. Proud Parents
According to the caption, this photo was taken only five minutes after Chanel's birth. That's pretty impressive.
3. Sitting With Dad
Despite solving countless cases on SVU, I've never seen Ice-T look prouder than in this moment.
4. Dimple Alert
BRB, going and crying at how cute this photo is.
5. Laying Down The Rules
Just born and this baby already knows the most important rule of social media: no haters allowed.
6. Chilling With Mom
Note: Mom is already wearing a Chanel necklace. How cute is that?
7. Holding Hands
This photo will melt any heart into a gigantic puddle. I can't decide what's cuter: her tiny hand or that gigantic bow on her hat.
Huge congrats to Ice-T and Coco! Their daughter is already a star.
