Ice-T joined Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday’s Tonight Show, and the rapper and actor could not stop gushing about his adorable 4-month-old daughter Chanel.
“Muhammad Ali said when you have a baby in the second half of your life -- you know I’m in my fifties -- it’s like you want to hit a restart button on your life,” he explained. “All of a sudden, I’m like ‘Ice, you’ve got to stay healthy, you’ve got to stay in the game.’ It’s just a beautiful thing.”
Some fans criticized the Law and Order: SVU star and his wife, Coco Austin, for setting up Twitter and Instagram pages for their daughter from “the first day,” but the rapper says they’ve only received positive feedback on Chanel’s accounts.
“We’ve gotten absolutely nothing but 100% love,” he marveled, thanking everyone for the kind words and good wishes. “It kind of gives you hope in humanity. [It] lets you see that humans can really be nice.”
Though Ice admits that having a new baby has made him reconsider his life, he’s certainly still young at heart. In fact, the rapper and actor showed Fallon a picture of him playing Fallout 4 in the delivery room while waiting for Coco to give birth!
